As A Stripper People Would Come To Me For Help And Still Judge Me — Former BBNaija Housemate

Chinenyenwa Okoebor, called Chichi, a former Big Brother Naija housemate, has revealed some of her personal struggles as a former stripper.

During an interview on Saturday Beats, Chichi, who was probably one of the most talked about roommates during the show’s last season, which finished months ago, stated that strippers are often criticised and viewed as lower individuals.

The reality TV actress stated that while she was a dancer, people would come to her for advice while also judging her for her occupation.

She claims that stripping is just another occupation like any other, but Nigerians disagree.

Chichi lamented that due to the way people see her she finds it hard to express herself in public as her opinion would be taken with a pinch of salt.

She said, “I think I am the most judged stripper. When I was a stripper, (I don’t strip anymore), people often came to me for help and at the same time, they would judge me. They did not see us as human beings. Stripping is actually a profession but in my father’s land (Nigeria), it is not seen as one. It was really hard because people were so judgmental.

“Because of that, I cannot talk in public. And, that is why I am uptight; I don’t like expressing myself. Whenever I talk, people are quick to throw ‘shades’ at me, saying what do I know since I’m just a stripper. They feel we (strippers) can do”

She also stated that she was not open to having sex on the first date. She said, “Sex on the first date is something that I don’t think should even be discussed on the first day; talk more of doing it on the first date. But, who am I to judge people who think it is okay?”

Chichi, who is considering a career in Nollywood, maintained that she cannot act nude. She said, “No, I won’t act nude. But, for those who choose to do it, I am not a judgmental person. That is probably what they feel comfortable doing. They should do what they feel is good for them.”

The BBNaija graduate also expressed her belief that women can be as successful as men.

She said, “I don’t believe that. A woman can be successful the same way a man can. There are so many wealthy men out there; should we also say those men got their money from women?”
