He wrote:“For over a year now I’ve been living a lie. Some people have advised me to go on with it but I fear for my mental health and my future so I’ve chosen to come out.
Big brother was my biggest shot at fame and nothing in the world could have stopped me from grabbing it with both hands but somehow I felt like I wasn’t enough and I needed to do more and BE more in order to stay relevant and to get some extra clout. I was desperate, the magnitude of the competition I was going for even made me more desperate so I attached a tag to myself – “I’m a Part-time Stripper” I said to the whole world.”
However, it turned out that he couldn’t keep up with the fame and discovered that it hurt his brand. Tuoyo announced in the open letter that he is infact not a stripper and will be coming out with the real him soon.
“I got the hype I wanted but it was unsustainable, I couldn’t live up to it because actually that’s not who I am but because I have the body I tried to force it, to push if I could keep living the lie to make it become true but the more I did, the more I regretted. I wasn’t deriving any pleasure and in fact, I felt like I was making a fool of myself so I had to stop. And I’m here to say I’m sorry I lied, no one is perfect, my ultimate strategy has turned back to hurt my reputation and my brand. My name is Tuoyo Ideh AND I AM NOT A STRIPPER. You’ll be meeting the REAL me very soon. Cheers to a new beginning!! #TuoyoRebranded #OpenLetter,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, the BBNaija 2020 Lockdown show is no doubt a favourite of numerous fans across Africa as they keep themselves updated with the actions of the housemates.
The show started out with 20 contestants but they have already been trimmed down to 14. In order to escape eviction, the housemates usually hope to win the Head of House game and benefit the perks that come with the position.
Interestingly, Ozo emerged victorious. This would be his second time winning the coveted HOH title. However, unlike his previous reign, the young man chose Nengi to be his deputy.
Recall that Ozo chose his close pal, Dorathy, to be his deputy HOH when he won the title during the third week of the show.
