“60 percent of BBNaija housemates have gone into depression” – Former housemate, Bally reveals
Nigerian disc jockey and record producer, Bally Balat has revealed that more than half of previous BBNaija housemates have at one time or the other gone into depression after leaving house.
Balat who is also a former housemate on the reality show in an interview with NdaniTV stated that the mental health of the housemates is affected by pressure, adding that not everyone can handle the pressure that come’s with being on the show.
In his words,
“Going for the show is not easy. I keep telling people that the pressure involved in the show is not for everybody. Not everyone can survive it
”I might be wrong, but I will say maybe 60 per cent of housemates have gone into depression. They might not be in depression now but they have gone through it one time. There is so much pressure.
”For example, you come out of the house and everybody loves you. You have access to something and your life is glamorous and then you go into the next phase and realize that all those were not real and it was just a part-time thing.
”The real life is setting in and as they announced the next audition, things are moving and you enter the deep state where you are forgotten. I am sure a lot of housemates have gone through these.”
