"I wish I could have bottled my feelings and just show you how I felt. I know how I felt and I was just not happy and wasn't willing to sacrifice my brand to entertain the viewers."
When asked why she changed her mind and decided to stay longer after almost taking a voluntary leave, she said:

"Kim Oprah said something that struck a chord" - Lucy reveals
The BBNaija season five star noted that her colleague Kim Oprah, also a fake housemate for the All-Star edition, had a hand in why she wanted to leave a day after entering the house.
"I think maybe because she knew we were both fake housemates she felt she could come for me. She said something that struck a chord and I just couldn't take it. Neither was I will to risk my brand for the entertainment of the viewers. So yes she had a hand in it."
She also revealed how Biggie pleaded with them not to stoke more tension in the house or get anybody disqualified.
"Yes, Biggie told us not to stoke more tension but I was still not willing to take trash from anybody."
