“What my ‘runaway’ dad said when he heard I won BBNaija show” – Whitemoney
The Big Brother Naija season six winner, and reality television star, Hazel Oyeze Onou, known professionally as Whitemoney, has revealed what his father said when he heard that he won the Big Brother Naija show.
Recall that during the Shine Ya Eye show, Whitemoney said that his dad separated from his mom years ago, leaving his mom to cater for him and his brothers.
Whitemoney also said that even though his mom hasn’t gotten married to another man since then, he planned to go searching for his dad after the show. And when he finally sees him, he would ask him to come back to his mother.
However, in a recent interview with La Mode magazine, Whitemoney revealed that his father seems to have been following the show and he was aware of what he said in the Big Brother House so, he tried to reach out to his family.
Whitemoney disclosed that his father reached out to his mom, and gave his phone numbers to her so they can easily contact him.
Whitemoney also said that there’s something his father told his mom the day he called her after the Shine Ya Eye show. He said that his father said he’s happy that he (Whitemoney) didn’t go to school, because if he had gone to school, he would have been carrying files around Abuja, searching for a job, and wouldn’t have the opportunity to win the show.
Whitemoney, who was surprised this came from his dad, also revealed that his dad is one of those parents who would force their children to be lawyer, or doctor, like his own dad forced him to study law.
In Whitemoney’s words;
“I will tell you this for free. This is a family thing. I will tell you, because it’s a very funny thing. It’s a family thing, it’s deep, but it’s very funny, because it came from my dad.
Remember, in the House, I said when I come out, I’m going to look for my dad and everything. So, I came out, calls were coming here and there.
And one day, my mom called me and said my dad reached out, to her and he dropped his phone numbers. And there’s what he said that really cracked me up, because my dad is one of those parents that if you’re not a lawyer, doctor, or this, you’re useless.
He tried for my brother to be a doctor, that one ended up with computer. He tried for me to be a lawyer, imagine me, be a lawyer, I will probably be doing charge and bail. I will just be collecting money to shout my lord, my lord, yes Lord, Amen lord. Me that my parents aren’t strong that side.
So, my point is this. This is what he said with his mouth. He said, and I quote, according to what my mother told me, that my dad said, ‘Thank God that I did not go to school, thank God he was not there to send me to school, if not, how would I have won this Big Brother. That if I had gone to school, I would have been carrying files around Abuja, looking for job’.
Look at what this man is saying. That’s why I told you, speak all the English you want to speak in this world, If you don’t have money, you’re nothing.”
