Bella Okagbue, a Big Brother Naija season seven housemate, has defended Sheggz amid allegations of domestic abuse.
In a recent interview with Arise TV, the 25-year-old stated that her UK-based lover was misunderstood.
When asked if she thought Sheggz was abusive, Bella said “I always told him you might be misunderstood. I mean you live in UK the way we speak in Nigeria is totally different from the way we speak over there. He might say ‘you’re sick’, there, it’s okay to say that but here it’s not okay. It might bee seen as an insult. He was even sweet to me in the house, everyone saw that. I was vulnerable and he was vulnerable. I mean it’s okay to be vulnerable. I mean sometimes you get triggered by that.”
This comes after Sheggz’s ex-lover Gbemisola Akinde accused him of being verbally abusive and manipulative.
Gbemisola said she initially broke up with him during the trauma but continued the relationship after he promised to change for the better.
The entrepreneur added that she finally parted ways with the 26-year-old in November 2021 after realising he did not change as promised.
“Nothing or no one can bring me down. I broke up with him officially in November 2021 and he was still trying different tactics to get back with me during his stay in Nigeria between December 2021 – March 2022.
“It was toxic. I’m not going to go into details as to what transpired between us and what didn’t. Everything Segun does is for his own selfish interest and I am thankful to be free from that relationship from hell you have no idea! I feel liberated,” she said.
