Alex’s mum, Ebere Asogwa, has asked Nigerians to forgive her daughter for crying when Leo was evicted from the Big Brother Naija house.
She made this known via an Instagram video post which was shared on Alex’s official page.
According to her, she was initially angry about the way Alex had reacted, but after she thought about it, she realized that Alex had learnt how to react to situations from her.
She also said that she has forgiven her daughter, who she says has realized her mistakes and has come back to her sense.
What Alex’s mum said in the Instagram video
Good evening my people, my name is Mrs Ebere Asogwa from Enugu state, Nigeria. I am the mother of Alex who is currently in the Big Brother Naija house, she is my biological child and I raised her myself so I can tell a lot about her.
Alex is a very emotional person, when she gets angry and does not want to react, she cries it out just like me. She picked it from me.
Initially I was angry about the way she cried when Leo was evicted and I had to ask myself so many questions about what is happening but I answered the question myself. All she did was picked from me, even as a mother when I get angry and I don’t want to be harsh on anyone I move to a corner and cry it out.
Unfortunately there is no hiding place in BBNaija because there are cameras everywhere so you all see her crying all the time. Please all of you that picked on her on the way she cried should please forgive her, I have forgiven her. She has apologized during her dairy session on Monday.
I forgave her in most ways that offended all of us because she has realized her mistakes.
At a time she was withdrawn from activities in the house but I thank God she has come back to her senses. I thank you all that have been voting and praying for her because this has kept her going thus far. Ten people have gone but Alex is still there, we thank you all.
How Alex reacted to Leo’s eviction
Following Leo’s eviction, an Alex, who had just survived possible eviction broke into uncontrollable tears, while Rico, Tobi and Nina tried to console her.
She even told Miracle that she wishes that Nigerians had saved Leo instead of her.
How Leo feels about Alex’s tears
During an interview with Pulse, Leo said he was really sad, not because he got evicted, but because Alex was really crying.
He said he didn’t like the fact that she was crying on national TV, which would make people perceive her as weak.
“But actually, Alex isn’t weak. It just made me really sad and I didn’t like that for her brand,” he told Pulse.
Alex is currently up for possible eviction alongside Miracle, Anto, Tobi, Teddy A, Bambam, Lolu and Cee-C.
