This week, however, without even saying much, Ozo has already stolen that spotlight as a couple of media networks have landed an interview with him.
No doubt you are familiar with his complex love story with Nengi, and for the most part, we couldn’t wait to see how he would react when he came out and saw some of the perception surrounding his character.
Since Ozo’s eviction this past Sunday, the ex-housemate has been so highly discussed, that his stay in the house could legitimately make for an actual case study in how humans react to seeing a truly emotional figure.
While in the house, Ozo bore his heart out for the world to witness. He professed his undying love for Nengi on numerous occasions and, despite consistent rejection, did not allow his ego get in the way. He simply stayed through to his course and stuck to his word till his last day in the house.
His push to be with Nengi steered a lot of conversations his way, making everyone wonder how he would react when he sees what people are saying about him.
But now that he is out, it is shocking to see that he is handling the situation exceptionally. In almost every interview he has done, including the ones with Africa Magic, BBC Pidgin and Beat FM, they all raised the question of the mindset behind his persistence with Nengi, he always ended up replying with calm demeanour.
When Ebuka asked him about Nengi, he said going overboard for someone he loves doesn’t make him the bad guy. This immediately nipped that in the bud, as Ebuka couldn’t push any further for a response.
When asked by BBC pidgin if his love for Nengi was a distraction, he pointed out the many tasks he won in the house and raised the question of how a distracted person could have bagged home so many wins.
And when asked by a Beats FM reporter if he had seen the video of Vee laughing at him when Nengi denied him a kiss, Ozo simply stated that everyone is entitled to their opinion.
In just two days , Ozo has said all the right things, and even those who found his behaviour in the house unbearable are beginning to have a change of heart. Ozo’s calm demeanour and his honesty is winning him even more fans than he had while in the house.
For Chinedu Okafor, its all about making an impact with words, creating a profound impression on the audience with the intended narrative.
