She said in parts: “Well, because of my mental health, when was in the House, towards the end of my stay in the House I was getting really sad, like wasn’t smiling anymore, I was not happy.

“Then coming out in that shocking way, coming to face the world and hearing all the things people had to say about me and seeing all the love knowing that oh have a new… it was just a lot of things to take in at the same time. Plus knowing that my life has totally changed. Im just trying to adjust so many things, so I needed that time, I didn’t want to just be overwhelmed and just breakdown or something, that was the best thing”

Erica became popular after participating in the Lockdown edition of the Big Brother Naija show.
