Doyin speaks about being true to herself

The BBNaija star noted that no amount of public opinion would change how she feels about herself and her body.

"The goal is to stay true to who I am, what works for me. I know it will not be easy, especially being a public figure, but that's the plan. People usually mistake my confidence for arrogance"

She continued, speaking about her recent photos that went viral, she said:

"My photos recently went viral. The one where I was in a black bikini, and I did a bathroom shot. I don't understand why that pic stirred so much attention. For goodness' sake, I was at the beach. What was I supposed to wear to the beach?"

The reality TV star also touched on having to constantly battle with specific abuse and insults always thrown at her.

"It is really crazy seeing people that are not as good-looking as you're telling you how to look. It is ridiculous. I saw one person's comment during the bikini photo uproar, and I tried to dig into the person, only to see a photo of her looking like a desperate woman. It was appalling. You know, before those insults used to get to me about after my recent time in the house, I grew a new pair of balls."
