Kayvee, one of the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ housemates of Big Brother Season 6, has withdrawn from the show barely two weeks after coming into the house with JMK, Michael and Queen.
TOS NEWS gathered that he was advised to withdraw from the competition due to his recent struggle with mental health.
Confirming his exit, a statement on Big Brother Naija’s official Instagram reads: “Kayvee, one of the housemates in the Big Brother Naija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ Season, has been exited from the House on medical grounds.
“Prior to this, he had a consultation with Big Brother and the on-site medical team where it was decided that he had to leave the house for a more thorough medical investigation.
“MultiChoice and the show producers are committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all housemates in the Big Brother house at all times.”
Earlier, the housemates, fans and viewers called Big Brother’s attention to Kayvee’s sudden display of behaviour suggesting mental health challenges.
Reacting to the latest development, Kayvee’s social media handler requested fan support as the photographer figures his next move.
“The KayVee we know isn’t what people are painting him to be. His friends and family will never allow him to go into the house if he had a mental health issue. KayVee is big on mental health and positive vibes and you could see that from when he entered the house.
“What is happening in the house is simply a reaction to him being unwelcomed. He was full of life when he got into the house, and something has triggered this phase. This has caused him to withdraw into his shell to rebuild his energy and vibe,” the post read.
