It is certainly going to be rough year for Nando, especially now that few of his friends are penning out words of encouragement on social media. Apart from Feza Kessy and Nikki Mbishi who are crying out to fans support, former Big Brother Africa winner, Idris Sultan and had to say to Bongo5.
“I did not see the need to post anything about Nando firstly because he is not my friend. We are more of acquaintances ever since we were in big brother in 2014. We used to meet in events and parties but I still cannot consider him as close. Together with some of the housemates we have had some hard time to look for his mother’s contact and make her aware of her sons’ state therefore he is now checked into rehab at Kigamboni. I can gladly say he on the recovery road.”
“Nando is a smart, creative and real than I can be, so I can admit at first I did not know he was using drugs until he confessed to me. Honestly, I did not expect him to be in such a state however his appearance could tell a lot. Telling him to stop was not necessary since at the end of the day it’s his initiative to decide so.”
He adds, “As for now, together with my friends, his family and close friends we have taken responsibility to contribute money and make sure he gets assistance till the day they will release him. However, my main goal towards Nando is once he is released I will get mentors to regularly talk to him in that he does not slip as former stars have done. I will support him because he is an incredible person. It my prayer together with former big brother housemates that Nando will fully recover.
