BBN Housemate, Kayvee, Exits Voluntarily Due to Mental Breakdown

Former BBN housemate, Ololade Olajide aka Kayvee, has exited the Shine Ya Eye reality TV show of his own volition. Kayvee said he withdrew from the show because of mental breakdown. The rising photographer said he actually wanted to complete the 72 days of isolation in the house, but his mental health and anxiety panic would not allow him to continue.

Kayvee entered the show together with Queen, Michael, and JMK on August 8. That was the day the trio of Beatrice, Yerins, and Niyi were evicted from the house.

Before he withdrew from the show, Kayvee had a meeting with Big Brother and the medical team at the show attended to his health. But it was resolved behind closed doors that it was better for him to leave the show in order to access comprehensive medical treatment.

Former leader of the house, Pere, announced Kayvee’s intention to leave the house to the entire housemates and they all became dejected at his exit. Some tearfully helped him with packing his bags.  

“I underestimated the effect isolation would have on my mental health and integrating with the other housemates,” Kayvee disclosed in a statement after leaving the show. “But, certain events that happened in quick succession escalated the anxiety I felt and impacted my being the jovial, energetic, and fun person that I am.”

He said he is currently in a medical facility where he is undergoing treatment. He expressed joy that he has reunited with his family and added that he was happy for the support he got from his fans and other housemates at the BBN show.

“Since my withdrawal from the house, I have reconnected with my family and I am currently at a medical facility working through the debilitating anxiety I felt,” he said. “I covet your love and prayers. I look forward to connecting with Kayveefc whose love and commitment has been nothing short of astounding. Word will never be enough to convey my gratitude.”

A fan in the UK, Oluwaseun Osowobi, created a GoFundMe campaign to raise £10,000 to enable Kayvee set up a photography studio following his exit from the house. The campaign has raised £450 from 31 donors.
