Although the pair of Nina and eventual winner Miracle were somewhat a couple during their stay in the Big Brother Naija house, fans were hoping that they would carry on after the competition came to an end.
The 22-year-old Nina made no secret of her desire to continue, saying in an interview afterwards that ‘Miracle is my everything… Collins (her erstwhile boyfriend) is my boyfriend.’
Months after, Miracle is quashing all talk of a relationship between them. He wrote on his Instagram page about he and Nina being ‘friends’ and nothing more.
“Hello, my wonderful family. my management just drew my attention to my social media community rivalry and insisted I address it. Abà I beg make Una take am easy, Nina is a nice girl with a beautiful soul and should be treated with respectful courtesy. Because nobody should be subjected to negativity male or female. I also have a sister, a mother and beautiful cousins and I wish the public respect their space and treat them as strong and capable individual women with equal opportunities as men…”.
He goes on:
“My point is; neither me nor Nina, I believe has ever publicly or in private told anyone we are in love and are dating. We were involved in the house and remained friends since then. We are young people with prospect and have dedicated our time in building our future not concentrated in relationship. So please (I beg) kindly don’t subject us to an undue imaginary relationship. I keep respecting and love you all for your kind support and understanding. God bless.”
Fans of the two of them have been reacting to his words with different emotions, ranging from humour to anger. Nina herself was seen in the comment section saying simply ‘Thank you and God bless’
