Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Bamike Olawumi, popularly known as Bam Bam, trended on the Internet last Saturday courtesy of the feather dress she wore to the Africa Music Viewer’s Choice Award.

Shortly after her pictures surfaced online, they were followed by criticisms and online memes. In an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats, she revealed that creativity and excellence inspired the feathered dress she wore to the AMVCA.

Although the dress had hundreds of feathers and Swarovski crystals, it still earned the reality television show star a lot of criticisms on social media over the weekend as some of her fans were shocked at her outfit. “I am not conventional, I can be simple, classy and elegant but one thing about me is that I am a confident woman. I think excellence and creativity and I wear anything that defines my personality, so that was what inspired my outfit,” she said.

Olawunmi, who ventured into acting after she left the house, also emphasised that she had it in mind when she was in the house to use the Big Brother platform to promote her beauty business and acting career.


“I had it mind to use the Big Brother platform to showcase myself as an actress and a business mogul. Victoria Beckham and Oprah Winfrey are my mentors; I look up to them as strong family women and I see them as business moguls. I’ve always been a business person, even before the house. So, after the Big Brother, I just made it bigger. “I was an actor before the Big Brother house; I just only became a recognised actor after it. I will feature in more movies soon. I will be doing a few short movies in the nearest future, but I want to gain experience first,” she told Saturday Beats.
