Jaypaul, a reality TV celebrity, has revealed that he was meant to be a housemate in the Lockdown edition of Big Brother Naija in 2020.

As the 2021 season of the reality TV show dubbed Shine Ya Eye kicked off last night, Jaypaul and other boys were unveiled and welcomed into the BBNaija House.

While waiting for the female participants to arrive, Jaypaul talked with the other males about how disappointed he was not to be a part of the Lockdown version.

“This is my fourth time auditioning for Big Brother,” he remarked. Last year, however, was the most dramatic. I was 45 minutes away from getting into the house when I decided to return to the hotel.

“I was dressed and certain that my belongings were inside the BBNaija House. It was only left for me to take the stage, but I ended up returning.”

“I was in my suit on my bed till 4 a.m. That is to express the astonishment with which I was confrontedd. He added, "I was meant to be there," adding that he was "45 minutes away from climbing the stage."

“But this time around, I'm pleased I finally made it,” he continued.
