Evicted BBNaija housemate, Saga, has revealed that his his father was never there for him while he was growing up.
He said he was now relieved that their relationship had grown stronger and knowing full well that his father is proud of him.
Saga stated this in a Facebook live interview with The PUNCH on Wednesday.
He said he was a “mummy’s boy to the core” and his father wasn’t really available when he was younger.
He said, “I’m the last child and only boy. My father, growing up, wasn’t really available.
“He was always busy. And then, he was this hard guy, who chose to use the hard way. So we all moved on with our lives.
“Unfortunately, my mum passed on in 2014 and we were just there.
“It was very awkward between me and my dad initially; very awkward.
"Eventually, I went to serve in Bayelsa in 2016 and I never came back. I just stayed back in Port Harcourt.
“Over time, I just had to build up a relationship with him. He’s getting old and he’s loosening up. There’s no more job to distract him.
“But when I was younger, even up until 2015, he was not existent. There was nothing between me and him. But now, we are cool. I understand him better.”
