BBNaija Kiddwaya’s diary session today created both excitement and controversy after he gave a heartfelt shoutout to his manager Linek and long-time friend, DJ Cuppy.
Big Brother asked Kiddwaya while in the diary room to greet two people that are special to him outside the house and he chose Linek and DJ Cuppy.
Kiddwaya said during the diary session:
“The first one is Linek…she is basically my…or one of my favourite girls. She is doing so much behind the scenes, sorting my life out. I wanna say to her – keep calm, I know you are doing an amazing job. Try and relax. Stay focused. Get the team motivated. Keep doing you, you are doing great. No matter what happens I’m proud of you. I’m always gonne be proud of you. We’ve come this far, stay focused. Keep my family happy. You are amazing and I love you a lot.”
Kiddwaya’s warm greeting to Linek has prompted fans of the show to believe she and the 27-year-old Benue native are dating.
The controversy was escalated by Kiddwaya’s relationship with co-BBNaija housemate Erica with many of the show’s viewers suggesting that Kiddwaya is only using Erica in the house as a game strategy while he has a beautiful relationship outside the house.
Kiddwaya’s sister wrote on Twitter that Linek is not Kiddwaya’s girlfriend.
