Chichi, a contestant of Big Brother Naija season 7, has talked about her life before fame.
Chichi, who claimed in the conversation with Punch that she is the most judged stripper, said that in our region of the world, exotic dancers are typically criticized by people and considered as less human.
I think I am the most judged stripper. When I was a stripper, (I don’t strip anymore), people often came to me for help and at the same time, they would judge me. They did not see us as human beings. Stripping is actually a profession but in my father’s land (Nigeria), it is not seen as one. It was really hard because people were so judgmental.
“Because of that, I cannot talk in public. And, that is why I am uptight; I don’t like expressing myself. Whenever I talk, people are quick to throw ‘shades’ at me, saying what do I know since I’m just a stripper. They feel we (strippers) can do anything for money.”
