Season 5 Big Brother Naija housemate lockdown edition, Erica Nlewedim, has come on Instagram to acknowledge her accomplishment and celebrate her evident growth.
Erica was disqualified on the show on September 6, 2020, making it a year today since she left the house.
She, however, has not let this stopped her, and has since gotten multiple endorsements. She has also featured in Nollywood movies like the ‘Devil in Agbada’ and ‘Hire a Woman.’
She wrote her journey in an Instagram post.

She said, “The past one year, I’ve been working, single-minded, almost like a robot, not thinking of how far I’ve come, just focused on my goals, trying to outdo myself, trying to make everyone around me proud, my life has been on fast forward & it was a lot. It took its toll on me and I had to take a break to heal and I thought rest was all I needed until a loved one asked me what I would tell the Erica of September 6, 2020.
“I thought about it and couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t understand how I had successfully avoided thinking about any of the traumatic experiences that had happened to me in the past one year. It was a struggle think back to those moments of fear and sadness but I did. I spoke to Erica, I forgave her, I applauded her, I promised her she would be proud of herself in a few months and she would be surrounded by so much love.”
