@Entertainment Africa: #BBnaija -Tobi addresses age controversies, speaks on his parents’ reactions

Big Brother 2018 ex-housemate, Tobi has confirmed that it is a common scene for him that people disbelieve his real age.

Recall that, during the 2018 BBNaija TV reality show, Tobi’s age remained a big issue of controversy ever since he told other housemates while in the show that he was 23.

Tobi clears the air, said, “It is not surprising that they did not believe me. I feel that the reason they did not believe me is because of my accomplishments, not many people of my age have done what I have achieved in life.

“I graduated from school at 18, I worked for about four years and within that time, I have also done my Chartered Financial Analyst level one qualification; it is a reputable finance qualification.

“I still have two more levels to go. To a lot of people, it is really hard to believe, especially if they compare it with their life or other people’s standard.

“I have not always been the smartest kid but I have always been smart in my own way . I graduated from school with a Second Class Upper degree even though I was the youngest in my class. I come from a family where you are taught to be hard working.

“At that young age, I had some distractions but I knew that I could not attend the university without finishing without a very good result.”

Tobi also revealed what his parents told him when he first saw them after the show, he said, “They told me that they are proud of me and my father called me his role model and that meant a lot to me.

“Not every man gets such words from his father. It was a great moment for me.”
