Debie Rise, one of the top five Big Brother Naija finalists was enveloped in a buzz of how her father would react to her homecoming. Quite a number of funny memes were flying the social media on the finale of the show.
According to Debie’s narration in the house, she never informed her dad about going for the competition ’cause she was quite sure he would refuse her. Debie felt she’d rather not tell him than disobey him.
The amazing singer has finally opened up on her father’s reaction to on her return.
“He was trying to be protective but being a pastor and me trying to have a career in music, there could be this friction.
“So I didn’t want a situation whereby I would inform him of my intentions to go and then he would say no. I did that because once he said no, then I couldn’t go because it would be disobedient.
“So, I wanted to be smart, go for it and tell him, ‘daddy I have gone, please pray for me’ like Dare Art Alade sang and I’m happy I did it.
“I would have had to convince him and there would have been no time to do that but then in the end, to God be the glory.
“He wasn’t initially impressed and didn’t like that idea and he actually called the producers of the event and asked me to come back home.
“He said he was not happy at all but then I was able to convince him and beg him.
“Before I returned home, I was a bit scared and I wasn’t sure he would be happy.
“I won’t lie, I was just hoping I made him proud in the house and when I finally placed a call to him, he said something like, ‘now you have my time abi?’
“And I apologized and asked him if I made him proud and he just said “I love you my daughter” and that is just what I want you to know, that my parents are proud of me and I’m looking forward to going home and paying them a visit.”
