'My father thought I was going to be a bum' – BBNaija's BamBam

Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Bamike Adenibuyan, popularly known as BamBam, has opened up about her childhood experiences and her father's biggest fear about her lifestyle.

According to the actor, her father warned her to learn to survive and not become a burden after graduation.

BamBam said she made things easy for her father when she chose to stay in Abuja after her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

She said: 'My parents were very strict. My dad said that once I graduated, he didn't want me to get fat on his couch. He said I was on my own and worried about how I would survive. He didn't want me to be held liable, so I made it easy for him. After NYSC I didn't go back home, I stayed at home.

“I had such a good upbringing, a military father, a Deeper Life mother and a nurse. You don't interact with people and we don't even have TV. I grew up not watching TV, and until now I still don't have a good habit of watching TV. Dad comes home and everyone runs into the room, but I just wanted to know what's happening outside. My father was quite concerned that I would become a vagabond.'
