Reality TV star and former beauty queen, Chinonso Opara, better known as KimOprah, expressed that she is facing consequences for her physical attractiveness.
In an interview with a media personality, Hawa Magaji, she said,
“People criticise me for the weirdest reason. How can you drag me for being beautiful? Sometimes, people also pit celebs against one another, creating animosity for no reason.”
She also revealed that she broke down after participating in Big Brother Naija Season 4 themed “Pepper Dem”. She said,
“My life has been one of grace and blessings, because some things happen and one wonders why. I really broke down after Big Brother. I have never shared this story. I was really broken, because with pageantry, I did not get anywhere. I thought BBN would be different because it was out of my comfort zone. My people advised me to try it because I had been in Lagos for about a year hosting events. I recall that I used to tell Denrele Edun to give me some of the gigs that were below his pay grade.”
Speaking about being raised by a single mother, KimOprah disclosed that it helped her to grow her business. She said,
“Growing up with a strong independent woman helped me business wise, and in life generally. It taught me not to wait on anyone. If one has to do something, one has to do it by oneself. I don’t wait around for people to do something for me; I just do it myself.”
