A member of the team handling Big Brother Naija 'Shine Ya Eye' contestant, Maria Benjamin's social media accounts has revealed that it would be fine if she found love on the show.
Gift Amadi one of Maria's handlers in a chat with The PUNCH said, "Right now, she is just living her life. We are not in contact with them so I don't know what she is going to do. But Maria is a lover and if she finds love, (that would be) fine. However, I know she's going to do whatever she wants to do. I really don't know what her plans are. It's a game. If she plays it well, fine."
Speaking further, Amadi noted that they truly got death threats.
"After we made it (threats) public, our team realised that the issue of the death threats was the main thing getting attention. There is no reason for us to have said such if it was not real. Some people said that other former contestants had played that card before and they are not lying. There have been proofs to back them up.
"That we didn't post it (screenshots of the threats) does not mean it didn't happen. If I really wanted to push the narrative, we could have posted it. I just didn't want to go that route, so we let it go. People called her unprintable names in messages on social media, which left me stunned because I didn't think these things go that far."
Maria has been romantically linked with Pere, partly because they are both wild cards.
