BBNaija Shine Ya Eye housemate, KayVee’s family has reacted to allegations by some housemates that their son is mentally unstable.
Similarly, some housemates have also appealed to Biggie to examine the photographer.
Whitemoney, JMK, Cross feel KayVee might be suffering from depression, hence needs psychological evaluation.
Responding to the issue, KayVee’s family disputed the allegations.
In a letter posted on the official Instagram page of their son, the family said they will never allow him to go into the competition if he had a mental health issue.
“The KayVee we know isn’t what people are painting him to be. His friends and family will never allow him to go into the house if he had a mental health issue. KayVee is big on mental health and positive vibes, and you could see that from when he entered the house.
“What is happening in the house is simply a reaction to him being unwelcomed. He was full of life when he got into the house, and something has triggered this phase. This has caused him to withdraw into his shell to rebuild his energy and vibe.
“Have you met #KayVee? If 20 people are in a room and down spirited, he’s always there to uplift them. We could see how he played this role for his fellow housemate, Angel. He is a kind person, and that’s one of the qualities that makes us super supportive of him.
“KayVee is passionate about his craft, and that’s why he is on the #BBNaija show to promote himself and work. He has worked with several celebrities and individuals. He’s a focused and hardworking person whose life and work ethics inspire his friends and family. Over the years, he has tirelessly built his brand “KOKO’S VIEW”, which provides top-notch photography and cinematography to clients.
“He doesn’t speak bad English. Guys, he felt unwelcomed and overthinks his point before speaking, so it sometimes comes across as incoherent. Isn’t it human nature to overthink? Let’ be humane.
“When we say, “you don’t know what people are going through”, this is the kind of situation where we should be reminded to be kind to each other and remain supportive. Fewer words, more action. Please keep supporting #KayVee as he needs us now more than ever.”
BBNaija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Angel, has revealed Cross’ shenanigans after the pool party on Friday, August 6, 2021.
Angel revealed Cross showed everyone at the garden his manhood after the party.
Cross had told the housemates he always blank out when he drunk.
He said: “You guys should know one thing about me, I don’t really take alcohol but when I take alcohol, I tend to blank out”.
Nini then asked: “So you don’t remember most of the things you did last night? Angel said you showed her your d***k”.
Angel then confirmed saying “you showed everyone in the garden”.
BBNaija Shine Ya Eye housemates Cross and Niyi have exchanged heated arguments over who took the largest quantity of bread.
According to Cross, he was told by someone that Niyi was the last to take from the loaf of bread.
The issue escalated when Niyi allegedly said it is a ‘first come, first serve’ mood with the bread.
Cross wouldn’t hear any of it as the statement as he walked away to the kitchen, explaining the matter to Whitemoney and Sammie.
Niyi followed Cross to the kitchen telling him to stop putting words in his mouth because he never said what Cross thought he said.
Apparently, Niyi told Cross that he can’t quantify what he took because other people took before him, so he doesn’t understand why Cross came at him like he was the only one that took out of the bread.
The matter ended with both of them walking away from each other.
