Nigeria Is Too Poor, I Can’t Get Used To Things That Happens Here – Ex-BBN Housemste


A former Big Brother Naija housemate, Munirat ‘Antoinette’ Lecky, has said that she had to relearn some things when she decided to move back to Nigeria from the United States. The budding actress told Sunday Scoop, “Nigeria is far from easy. Every day is a learning experience and I’ve been . for almost four years. I think I have been able to acclimatise quite easily because my parents told us a lot about Nigeria while we were growing up. However, t. are some things I would never be used to because of my upbringing; those things would constantly frustrate me. I still don’t know why we don’t have constant electricity, or better roads and transportation. I think I have the same issues as a natural born Nigerian. I just had to learn how to live in Nigeria much faster.”

Sharing her experience as an actress, Anto said, “Movie sets are interesting. One has to learn on one’s feet. While learning one’s lines, one gets to see what other members of the crew are doing as well. I recently appeared in my first lead role in a movie titled, May 29. It was the longest time I had spent on a movie set, so I got to see a lot of things. Being on set has made me want to act more for both film and stage, and also branch into script writing, directing, and producing.”

The former reality show contestant also stated that she had extreme highs and lows in 2019. She added, “In my personal life, it reminded me that I’m a fighter and survivor. Professionally, it was great. I was able to make a headway in the entertainment industry with more acting roles and brand influencing gigs, while also engaging in philanthropic and educational activities.”
