Leo Babarinde DaSilva, a former contestant on the reality TV show Big Brother Naija, recently opened up about why he kept his engagement private and off social media.
In a previous tweet, he hinted at his marital status by discussing how he convinced his family to have a simple wedding.
During an interview, Leo explained that he values the importance of being married before starting a family. As such, he preferred to keep his engagement out of the public eye.
“I am engaged. I did not make it public because I will announce it when I am married. I did not see the need to announce what had not been formalized in God’s presence yet.”
When asked what he can’t do in a relationship, Leo said:
“That would be having kids. I think it is just my preference. Some people prefer to do it that way too. I just prefer to do it when I get married.”
Leo added that he would not regret anything about bachelor living once he gets married.
The reality TV star claimed that he could have gotten married when he was much younger if his parents were still alive, but he put off all of that in order to get his life in order. Leo DaSilva explained:
“I will not miss anything. As one gets older, one would understand how important it is for one to settle down. I would have settled down a lot earlier if my parents were not late. I just felt I needed to get things together, and I needed to make sure I was hundred percent ready to delve into it.”
Speaking on lessons he has learned from being in a relationship, Leo said;
“The most important lesson I have learned is patience. One cannot be with someone and not be patient with that person. We both come from different backgrounds with different upbringings and ways of life. The way we process things is different. Our emotional capacity would also be different. One needs to understand the other person’s differences. With patience and God being with someone, everything will be fine.”
