One of the ex-housemates of the 2017 BBNaija edition, Bobai Balat popularly called Bally has spoken on the other side of being on the reality TV show.
Bally shared his sentiments about the show during a chat with other BBNaija stars, Alex and Seyi Awolowo on Ndani TV.
As a result of the fame and gifts that come with being on the reality show, many Nigerian youths have expressed interest in being on the show, and the number of people that apply for the show keeps on increasing each year.
However, Bally noted that despite the good part of being on a huge platform like BBNaija, not everybody can survive the pressure that comes with it.
According to him, about 60% of people who have been on BBNaija have gone through depression.

Not everybody can survive it. I'm going to tell you that out of everyone that has gone to Big Brother, at least, 60 percent have gone into depression. They might not still be in depression but they have gone through it one time when it was crazy."
