According to him, many think that he used relationships to advance in the show.
The reality TV personality was in two relationships during his time in the BBNaija home, first with Beauty, who was disqualified in the second week, and then with the season’s winner, Phyna.
He stated this in an interview with Saturday Beats, emphasizing that it was incorrect for some of his ex’s admirers to allege that he lied to the ladies simply because things did not work out.
Groovy said; “I feel there has been a certain perception of me in the public as a result of the relationships I was in while in the house. All those talks about me not being genuine is something I want to clear up because I actually stayed true to myself. I was caring and loyal. I did not try to deceive anybody. I believed I could win the show, without necessarily having to do any of that.
“What is the essence of winning the show if I lost my mantle or damaged anybody in the process? I feel like some things work out and some things don’t work out. Saying that I am not a genuine person because everything did not work out is a wrong narrative about me. I am not what they said I am.”
“I feel like the reunion was a continuation of what we did in the house, and I saw it as an opportunity for people to bury the hatchet, air out their grievances for one last time, and find mutual understanding.
“There were fun sides to it, and there were also fights. I felt everybody had different experiences. I went there and I said my truth, which is all I always say because I am a genuine person. I say things as they are, and don’t try to cut corners.”
