Rico Swavey Reveals Relationships With Princess And BamBam

Former big brother Naija housemate Rico Swavey left fans in shock as he and Princess revealed surprising details of their pre-Big Brother Naija relationship.

In the latest episode of the BBNaija Double Wahala Reload show, the duo told fellow ex-housemates that they had a romantic relationship before being on the show. Rico also said that he had a professional relationship with BamBam before BBNaija


While in the house, the trio never revealed any hint that they had known each other before entering the house, especially with Rico paired with Ahneeka, BamBam with Teddy A and Princess with Bitto.

Rico Swavey, however, burst the bubble when he revealed that he and Princess had a romantic relationship while he had worked with BamBam before the show which left fans and fellow ex-housemates shocked.

The drama began when host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu asked Rico and Princess if they had dated in the past. Rico smiled and replied “ladies first” prompting Princess to give an affirmation to the question.

Ebuka went on to jokingly ask both of them if they had any babies fans should know of. Rico also addressed his past relationship with BamBam saying, “I got paired with BamBam. Before the show, me and BamBam already had sort of a relationship but based on professional terms.”

Fans went on social media to express their shock at the housemates’ relationship before the show especially that of Rico and Princess.
