Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Maria Chike Benjamin has opened up on how she battled spiritual challenges after her participation in the reality show.
In an interview with The Cable, the influencer revealed that she battled various spiritual challenges that drew her closer to God.
“Since coming out of Big Brother, there have been a lot of spiritual struggles or challenges, and that just made me get closer to my faith and obviously to God. Having God by your side is also amazing, and I always encourage people no matter what they do, whether it’s good, bad, or evil in the eyes of other people, to always tell God first, and it helps you feel better.”
Speaking on her spirituality, Maria stated that she was raised in a Christian environment but that she occasionally falters.
“I grew up in a Christian home, we go to church on Sundays and stuff like that, but you know sometimes you backslide, and your faith gets tested,” she added.
The 31-year-old reality star went on to emphasize the importance of having a solid support system and a strong foundation in faith to overcome life’s challenges.
