He said he knew he would still get to this point even if he tried being friends with her because of how he felt for her.

“So, I just made a conscious decision that it is what it is. I said I wouldn’t want to worry about public perception because I know it is not a love TV show but I was living my own reality,” he stated.

He also talked about the Kiddwaya factor in his relationship with Nengi, Dorathy and those he thought would be the top 3 finalists.

While in the house, Ozo constantly followed Nengi and expressed his love for her, even to the extent of proposing marriage.

He earned a strike for writing secret love notes to Nengi.
