The theme of today’s episode is TOTAL VAWULENCE!
There are so many exclusives, so many stories, so many insights from a life lived on the razor edge that she shared with me. Surgery, criticism, suicide attempt, closing up her womb, being Nigerian, ‘aristos’, why she cried several times in #BBNaija, hypocrisy. E plenty.
What is it like to survive as a free spirit in a society with plenty taboos and boundaries? How is Khloe doing it?
I can’t lie: I had a blast hosting and gisting with Khloe on this episode #WithChude. It is almost impossible not to envy her total freedom just a little teeny bit, no matter where it leads from here. It’s fully lived on her own terms.
Her experience at the #BBNaija house!
“Big Brother Naija changed my life. I have been unappreciative about it before, but looking back, now that I know better, I’m calmer, I know that the experience changed my life, and opened my eyes to everything. Before Big Brother, I would be in a room of 10 people, and I would talk to only one. Big Brother actually made me connect with other people. People used to think I was rude, arrogant, or stubborn. I said when I had my interview that I just wanted people to see the real me.
Because I have an H factor — which I’m working on now — I had a bit of an inferiority complex, so when I want to talk I’m trying to pick the word that does not have ‘h’ or look for alternatives. But in the Big Brother House, I was just blowing everything.
Big Brother opened me to a lot of things and made me see that people are not who or what it seems like. It is a beautiful experience if you can get in, get in. It is a good experience, but it’s not for the faint-hearted.”

The suicidal attempt!
Why was I lying unconscious on a bed out of surgery and somebody that has a soul took a picture and sent it to one stupid dirty-ass blog?
I was suicidal; that was the only time the media got to me in my whole life. Thank God I have great people around me, my friends and they were amazing, and my mom, my dad, my aunts. You know when they say people are suicidal, I laugh. But when that picture got to my phone I couldn’t think of anything everything was black.
The only thing I can say that is risky in my life is adventure, skydiving, ziplining, all those kinds of things that I love to do, but other things than that? I no dey near am.
That night was dark. I don’t even want to talk about it; I’m having goosebumps already. For anybody that’s trying to take their life, please think of your mother or your father. You might be at peace, or be in hell, but the pain will linger on their mind every time, every day.”
