One of the contestants in the 2018 BBNaija ‘Double Wahala’ reality show, Leo Da-Silva, has announced the death of his mother, RMO Sanni.
Leo took to his Instagram page in the late hours of Sunday to share the sad news with a photo of his late mother.
He wrote: “March 18, 2018. The worst day of my life. I lost my mother and I had to bury my mother today according to her Muslim rights. I remember the day of the Big brother auditions,you forced me to go, you said “you can win it for your business”. You said so far I’m myself, they will adore me. You set the pace for my life. You gave me everything. Today I felt like I could not breathe. Your legacy is that of the greatest woman I have ever known. Rest in peace Alhaja RMO Sanni. Rest in peace legend. Thank you for everything. Till we meet again. ❤️❤️❤️”
“Thank you to everyone that has supported me through this ordeal. I’m sorry I couldn’t pick calls.”

It would be recalled that Leo, who was evicted from the reality show last week, was just settling down after spending more than six weeks in the BBNaija house before the sad news.
He had told The Punch during an interview that his mother encouraged him to partake in the 2018 edition of the Big Brother Naija reality tv show.
Leo had said: “I do not feel bad that I was evicted from the Big Brother Naija House. I went on the platform so that I could put my business out there and I think I was able to do that. I provide services for people and the more I’m known, the better for my business.
“That was the reason my mum made me to go for the audition. If I was able to win the grand prize, it would have been a big bonusbut I am not disappointed; that’s how God wanted it to be. I was the only one in the house who didn’t unpack his luggage because I knew that I could live at any time. I just wanted to sell the real me; I made up my mind not to lose myself because of the money. At the end of it all, my mum was very happy and she said I made her proud.”
May her soul rest in peace.
