Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate Cross has recounted his early life struggles in a live Instagram chat with fans.
The young man who emerged as one of the Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eyes finalists disclosed that after the death of his father, Kidnappers abducted them trying to kill his mother.
This thrust her mother to flee the country so as to save the lives of the family. He further vowed that the impact reshaped his life and made him stronger.
In his words, he said:
“After my dad’s death we were kidnapped and they tried to kill my mother so she thought the best situation for us to be safe was to fore and seek asylum in a different country.”
“That exposed me to the ups and downs of life and shaped me to be who I am today but I’ve recovered from the kidnap trauma.”
