Former Big Brother Africa housemate, Tayo Faniran, has revealed why he has opted to support his tribe even if he is stationed abroad.
Faniran went on to blame those who called him a “local” because he decided to stay a diehard Yoruba.
Tayo Faniran disclosed on Instagram that he has been living and working among foreign nationals outside of Nigeria for almost 12 years, and questioned why he would want to change who he is when his uniqueness has always opened doors for him.
The reality TV star claims that he stands out wherever he goes and that people are curious about his background.
He wrote; “Almost 12 years of living and working outside Nigeria with white people and several foreign nationals since I was 22 (2008),I became the only man to represent my country ?? on the biggest show in the entire continent in 2014 and you still think remaining a hardcore Yoruba man means I’m local?
You need to fix your brain coz your brain has definitely lost coordination,it’s called originality,no one would want to change to become who I am so why would I ever want to change to become someone else? …
my originality opens doors for me where your influence can’t reach, I stand out wherever I go and I get people to be interested in Knowing more about where I’m from,be the original version of yourself.”
