Ex BBNaija housemate, Diane Russet in a recent interview with Punch talked about her life before coming to limelight, her relationship with her mum and her friendship with other housemates.
The chef and vlogger who recently turned 24 revealed she questioned and hated God during the period she lost her dad.
“My mother’s prayers have been working for me. I didn’t know that the love I’m getting was going to be so overwhelming and I’m surprised about everything.
“I remember crying more than I prayed. I remember questioning God and for a couple of years, I hated God if that makes any sense. It was difficult for me to get back to where I was with God because I struggled to pray. You know, I lost my dad,” she said.
She also added that she had setbacks in school but she’s grateful for her journey and appreciates her current state.
“School wasn’t going fine and I had a lot of setbacks. But looking at things now, I feel that I had to have gone through that phase to be where I am today. That’s why I appreciate things now and I won’t trade my journey so far for anything now,” she said.
The actress added that her mum and people from the North where she comes from have been very supportive.
“My mum has been really supportive because she believes in me. She understands why I’m passionate about my career and has never complained that I’m overdoing things. It’s been all positive vibes from her and even people in the northern part of the country (where I come from) have been very supportive, to my surprise.”
Diane whose relationship with Mercy Eke was one the most talked about in the BBNaija Pepper Dem season said;
“I found a sister I never had in Mercy Eke. Initially, I didn’t think I would be close to her but I can’t help loving her; she’s really a nice person. She pushes and inspires me to do things that I didn’t know I could do.”
She added that she’s friends with most of ex the housemates;
“I am friends with all the housemates; together, we are a ‘vibe’. We act like brothers and sisters and care for one another. I personally have a genuine love for all the ex- housemates. All that happened at my birthday bash was just us having fun as we had always done while in the house.”
