My Mental Health Challenge Post Was A Lie – Ex-BBNaija Housemate, Tega




Former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) Housemate, Tega Dominic has said that her management was not being truthful when they said that she had mental health challenges due to constant trolling from netizens.

Naija News recalls that after Tega left the BBNaija house, she came under heavy backlash for having an alleged affair with a fellow housemate, Boma while being a married woman.

Both parties however stated that they were simply acting a script for the sake of viewership.

Tega also revealed that her marriage had hit the rocks before she went for the reality show.


During the trolling period, the reality TV star put out a tweet that her mental health was affected.

However, speaking during her talk show ‘The Pandora Show’, Tega stated that it was a lie and that her management posted the tweet without her approval.

She said, “There was a time my management made a tweet about my mental health being affected. When I read that tweet, I said to myself, ‘Me, mental health? Where is my mental health going? How did it happen?’ I told them (management) that they didn’t show me before tweeting. They said it was because they knew I would not allow them to put out the tweet. They said at that time it was the best idea to go through.


“Sometimes, I don’t forgive myself; I feel like fighting myself for that single tweet. I cannot be saying something that is not real. Anything I tweet is how I feel at that moment. I don’t think I can say I am emotional when I am not. It’s not possible.”

She also revealed that there was a time someone was trolling her and her son but when she went to the person’s page she realized that it was a faceless account.

She said, “There was this time someone bullied me and my son. I went to the person’s page and realised that the person recently opened the account. In my mind, I was like, ‘This person cannot even face me with his real account and speak to me directly. That means I am way above the person. You will never see someone who has a blue tick on Instagram bullying another person. I just gave myself courage and said, ‘This cannot be it.’


“I may be getting trolled and my assistant or sister will come to my room and see me laughing. I have fine legs and I may look at the troll’s legs and say to myself, ‘My legs are even finer and this one is talking. There is always something to massage my ego. I have never seen trolling and bullying in my life like in the past one year. The people that have been there before me, I wonder what they have been facing.”
