Former Big Brother Naija season 6 housemate, Cross has spoken on how he convinced his mum who is an evangelist, to allow him participate in the reality show.

Cross who was one of the 6 finalists, in a Facebook live interview with PUNCH Online on Wednesday, October 6th, revealed his mum was against him going into the house.

According to him, his mum wasn’t acquainted with basic entertainment trends, neither was she familiar with the show, so he had to break it down to her and make her see reasons why being on the show was a rear opportunity.

“My mum is a pastor – an evangelist – and she wasn’t used to these social media stuff and entertainment stuff or even Big Brother. So I had to explain to her little by little how it was and she said it was okay.

“Last year, when I almost went in, she knew how sad I was when I didn’t go in. So it was a bit easier to convince her, especially because of that.” He said.

Meanwhile, Cross’ evangelist mum surprised him with her presence at the finale show which held on Sunday, October 3rd.

The reality star was shocked to see his mum who is based in Canada at the grand finale last night. Apparently Cross’ mum flew in from Canada to surprise her son.

On seeing his mum, Cross who was overly exited let out a loud scream, jumped out of his seat and embraced her. Watch video here.

The video which captured the adorable moment was shared on Cross’ Instagram page and captioned, “Priceless moments like this are worth more than silver and gold ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ Cross’ mum flew all the way from Canada to surprise him and his reaction says it all 🥺🥺”.
