Nigerian supermodel and former Big Brother Africa housemate, Beverly Osu is the cover celeb for the recent edition of Taylor Live Magazine themed ‘Confession’.
Speaking on life after she was at the Big Brother Africa – The Chase in 2013, she said “confusion and depression took a huge toll on me After BBA (The Chase) 2013, even though I made history in the game (I was never nominate for eviction through the entire show).
“Struggled to be myself, when the society pressured me to be someone else. I have always been accused of affairs and things I knew nothing about, and it broke my heart deeply.
Speaking to God but never really felt I got a response maybe because I did not Understand calling.. I had two near death experiences.”
Fast-forward to 2015, Beverly said she thought she felt she had nothing to live for and prayed to God for wisdom and direction on what path to take. “No matter how much I felt I didn’t have anything to live for in 2015, deep inside my soul I knew I wanted more. I chose to reshape my reality and how I perceived my life.
“I cried and begged God for wisdom and direction.. and then it hit me, I realized direction is better than speed . It’s hard to sacrifice speed when you are used to being on a fast track in life, this was hard for me to understand.
I know I’m a work in progress and I have so much in me to make the world a happier place.”
The model who doubles as an actress admits to loving what she does because they’ve always helped her express herself. “Being a Model and an Actor has always been my source of expressing myself.
I am in love with being a creative and a story teller, but somewhere along the line , I was starting to get stereotyped and being projected as a bad girl. It bothered me when I was put in a box when I have so many more stories to tell the world.
It’s all about headlines, appearances, covers and what people think, but they’re not seeing my soul.
I just do the work I love to do. And at the end of the day, if people love it, they love it, if they don’t, I am okay with that and will take corrections. I am a creative of arts forever.
I will continue to strive to be worth knowing not well known.”
