Big Brother Naija top housemate, Tobi, who got interviewed by Ebuka on Channels TV’s ‘Rubbin Minds’ on Sunday, talked about his relationship with Alex.
Though they have been acting like a couple, the reality show star said there isn’t more to it as they are just friends. Tobi also added that fans are putting pressure on them to be a couple . According to him, that won’t work because the way she is right now, he can’t date her.
“People have put pressure on Tolex, we are friends, the photoshoot of us is just from pressure. Yea, we like each other but in the outside world, its a different ball game.
“Of course friendship will remain but at the same time, now we are open to a new world, new opportunities we have to hustle.
“For me personally, there is no love when my bank account is not smiling. My emotions are zero when I’m not where I am supposed to be.
“There are a lot of people to meet in this circle, so you can’t put pressure or put all your eggs in one basket.
“I have a whole lot of things to focus on and she also has to accomplish a lot.
“I will be there for her when she needs my help or advise but when it comes to a relationship that is not the goal right now.
“I like her but in the course of my journey who knows what will happen.
“The way she is right now, a relationship will not work, I need her to establish herself, go out there” he said.
In several media tours Tobi and Alex partook in, shortly after they left the Big Brother Naija house, Tobi disclosed that he will like to date Alex. However in an interview with Punch, he said that being in a relationship now is the last thing on his mind.
“Honestly, right now, a relationship is that last thing on my mind because that would demand my attention and time which I can put into other use.
“I have a timeline with this opportunity that has been presented to me. I am trying to build a brand that would never die regardless of what is happening because I know that with time, the need to see Tobi would fizzle out.
“So I need to milk it while it is here and make my face a constant feature. I have a lot of work to do. So a relationship is not on my plate.”
This revelation led the interviewer to ask if he is in a relationship with Alex, or if he was considering her for one. He however replied;
“The truth is that we like each other but the Big Brother has presented us with a very big opportunity we could actually dilly dally with our relationship and work but this is not the best time for anybody to be in a relationship.”
However in a video which went viral few days, Alex said she is ready to give a thought to dating her fellow housemate,Tobi.
”Relationship-wise, I think I will give it a thought right now. I really don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t, because Tobi is like the best man anybody should hope for in this life.
“Since I came out I’ve been avoiding this issue but I would consider it now,” Alex said.
