Former Beauty Queen and Big Brother Naija housemate, Queen Mercy Atang, has written a thank-you message to the Big Brother Naija organizers for giving her the opportunity to participate in the show.
This moving piece follows the conclusion of the Reunion show on Friday, June 17th.
Queen explained how she and three other housemates arrived two weeks late but were fortunate to have lived in the house for such a long time.
Queen then flashed back to the COVID-19 when she was trapped in her home because of the pandemic.
According to her, this was a difficult time for her, but she persevered and eventually realized her ambition of starring in the film.
Sharing the post, she wrote:
“What a journey it has been for me, I’m filled with so many emotions.
I’m happy and thankful to @bigbronaija @dstvnigeria for the opportunity given to me to be on the show.
First as you all know, I came into biggie’s house 2 weeks late.
I stayed in the lockdown house longer than others did. One full month in there, God’s grace kept me there…
it was a long journey for my self @michael042sm @mrkayvee we thank God finally we got in. Thank you biggie 🤗
I can recall my stay in the lock down house. All I did was cry, pray, work out, look out the window, and wish I could step out.. unfortunately I couldn’t. That was when I realized what freedom really meant. I was literally running mental. I was loosing my mind. My anxiety was dealing with me. I wanted to give up. I wanted to go back home to my mom. But then one thing kept ringing in my head. Who will believe my story. That I was close to getting into biggie’s house but I opted out. Literally No one lol.
Secondly Queen do you really want to give up after coming this close, do you want to do this next year? The answer was No. So I fought my anxiety, I fought my fears, I fought the noises in my head that kept telling me to quit and I made it to the house💃.”
