Maria Chike, a former BBNaija contestant, discusses how she overcame spiritual issues as a result of her participation in the reality program.
The actress revealed in an interview with The Cable that she encountered various spiritual obstacles that drew her closer to God. Chike, who was raised in a Christian home, stated that her religion was put to the test after she left Big Brother Naija.
“Since coming out of Big Brother, there have been a lot of spiritual struggles or challenges, and that just made me get closer to my faith and obviously to God,”
She underlined the need of having a strong support system and a strong faith foundation in order to face life’s challenges.
Maria noted that comparing oneself to others might lead to failure, and that it is critical to work at one’s own pace while ignoring the progress of others.
“Having God by your side is also amazing, and I always encourage people, no matter what they do, whether it’s good, bad, or evil in the eyes of other people, to always tell God first, and it helps you feel better,”
The reality star stressed the importance of having friends who can offer advice and help overcome challenges. She admitted that she has only a few close friends but is grateful for their love, encouragement, and advice, which she combines with prayer.
