Kess, the only married man on Season 7 of Big Brother Naija show, has asked his fellow housemates not to look at him as someone who has a wife.
The 28-year-old Delta indigene said this on the first day of the show.
“Don’t look at me like a married man,” Kess said, adding that he was in the house to have fun.
