There is always a price to pay and a sacrifice to make for fame. For Oluwarise Debra Ebun, popularly called Debbie Rise, disobeying her father to be a participant in the Big Brother Naija show, is one of the hard choices she had to make. She believed being on the show will be good for her budding career in music and nothing could stop from going for it.
In a chat with Channels Tv, Debie-rise shared her father’s reaction when she got back from the competition.
Her father’s reaction
When popc found out and that’s even the reason I had to ‘escape’ from the house and then I sent an SMS. That was really mean but then, I knew what I wanted, at the same, I was sure I would not disappoint.
When he found out, it was not funny but I had to assure him that at the end of the competition, people will congratulate him for being a good dad.
And when it started happening, I’m just happy with how the transition started-how he was against at first and how he started accepting it.
When I went home for my homecoming, they still asked me to kneel down and lay hands on me and try to cast out whatever made me do what I had to do but at the end of the day, many women were saying, ‘I want my daughter to be like debbie-rise, she’s such a good girl, she’s so humble..’
All of these things just calm down all the tension but yes, it did happen and it was not funny. I don’t even want to go into the details of how he was on the hot seat for being a pastor and everything that happened. But I thank God for how everything happened.
