Former Big Brother Naija housemate and late political icon, Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s grandson, Seyi, has told of his close shave with suicide.
Seyi in an interview with Punchng.com recounted that several years ago he once mulled suicide after his father beat him silly for stealing his wrist-watch.
The BB Naija-season-four housemate said what informed his misdemeanor was his inordinate desire to keep up with the jones, adding he drew a lesson from the incident.
He told the paper, “As a child, I was trying to ‘feel among’ and stole a very expensive gold wristwatch from my father. But, he caught me and disciplined me so much that I almost committed suicide out of stupidity and shame. Those incidents taught me how to value life. I have gone down at different times but thankfully, I’ve always been able to rise back.”
