Former BBNaija housemate, Alex Unusual has revealed that after her exit from the popular reality TV show, BBNaija, she suffered depression twice.
Speaking in an interview with Ndani TV recently, Alex stated that one of the reasons was the pressure to act like a celebrity.
She also stated that the constant comparison to other housemates and reality TV stars added to her mental breakdown.
“I have had to deal with my depressing state twice after I left the reality show.
”The first one was when I came back from South Africa. I had plans of going to my aunt’s house from the airport. At the airport, they were keeping us somewhere with security, then I heard some people wanted to beat me and I was confused.
“After that, they took me to a room and at least 10 people came to say they were my mum just because they wanted to see me.

”I went into depression the week after all these happened. I had to deal with people saying I was not laughing like a celebrity, I also had to deal with been compared with others.”
