A former Big Brother Naija (Shine Ya Eye) housemate, Paul Ephraim, popularly known as Jaypaul, has said that some people criticize him for being ‘a good guy’.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said, “I have come to realise that the world does not really care about one. There are people who care about one truly but at the end of the day, one cannot please everybody. I am that guy that makes sure nobody is angry but really, not everyone would be happy with one.”
“If one is a good guy, people would chastise one for being a good guy and they would say one is being fake. They are the ones that also said I left money and went for love during my stay in BBN. Can’t one pursue two things at the same time?”
The 29-year-old also maintained that fame would not change him. He said, “I have been able to manage my fame because I do not look down on anybody. I am a street person although I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I feel I have seen it all. Fame will not change me because I will be who I have always been for a long time.”
Jaypaul also stated that life after BBN had been an adventure for him. He said, “Life after BBN has been an adventure because it is what I have always wanted and worked for. Now that I’ve got it, I am asking myself, ‘Do I really want this’? It has been an amazing roller coaster. The reception from fans has been amazing. I have seen beautiful people with beautiful hearts and they send me regular messages of how wonderful I am. That is amazing.”
The Cross River State-born reality star also stated that he had always wanted to be on television. He said, “The projects I am currently working on include music and other things on television. I have always wanted to appear on television. I want to host the biggest shows and gigs, and I have started that already. I have also been pushing my business, Made in Calabar. I have done a few advertisements, and I have been exploring my creative energy.”
