A former housemate in the sixth edition of Big Brother Naija reality show, Angel Smith, popularly known as Angel has revealed how she dropped out of two prestigious universities.
Going down her memory lane during an interview with media personality, Taymesan, Angel said she dropped out of the University of Lagos due to s3xual assault.
The reality TV star disclosed that she only spent two weeks in the institution and could not go further because of the incident which she said traumatized her.
She said: “I was in UNILAG for only two weeks. I struggled so much for those two weeks because when I got into UNILAG was my first sexual assault experience.”
Angel said she tried so hard to move on with her life pretending like it never happened but after a while, she couldn’t hold it in.
“It affected my school life so much. I always blamed it on not knowing what to do in UNILAG when actually, I’ve always been fully aware of what I wanted to do”, She said.
Naija News understands that the 22-year-old had grown up with her grandma.
According to Angel, she moved from wanting to become a gynaecologist to being so good in English that she won several Spelling Bees and boosted her writing skills.
She narrated further that though she always knew what she wanted to do but didn’t just do it because she had experienced something so traumatic and I didn’t speak to anybody about it.
“Especially not my granny because I had so much shame,” Angel said.
She added, “Nobody knew I was out of school until my mum had asked and I was like, ‘let me finally be out with it’.
“When I told her that and she asked me why I did not tell her what happened. I just told her I didn’t think I was doing the right course.”
Speaking about her second phase of varsity dropout, Angel said her mom after the University of Lagos incident, enrolled her in a foundational programme in the UK which she dropped out from too.
She said she dropped out because she didn’t know her direction or what she really wanted to dot point in her life.
Recently, the former BBNaija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ Housemate shut down a supposed fan of hers who mocked her for being supposedly dumped by Cross.
Naija News reports that a former housemate, Cross and Angel sparked dating rumours a few months ago as the duo continually shared their loved-up moments on social media.
But it seemed they were probably for clout or want to be on the lips of their fans as Angel and Cross rarely share photos of themselves together or seen goofing around in each other’s comment section.
