Cross Cross

Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) 'Shine Ya Eye' housemate, Cross has disclosed that he has dyslexia.

He revealed his condition to Angel after he broke down in tears in the garden.

Cross could not hold back his tears and got emotional after his heated argument with Nini.

Earlier on, Nini got angry in the bathroom after Cross called her stupid. Nini also retorted that Cross had a pea-sized brain.

Speaking to Angel after the heated argument, Cross said he has dyslexia and has always felt almost everyone is smarter than him.

“I’m not crying because of what she said to me, though it hurts me. I’m crying because you said I’m not all of these things she said.

“I don’t like how I’m feeling, I’m messed up right now. I know a lot of people are smarter than me, I have dyslexia.

“Nine out of ten people are smarter than me academically. I’m 31-year-old and for the most part of my life, I tried as much as possible to get by academically.

“I didn’t know I was dyslexic till my cousin pointed it out and it’s sad to see that part of me, but that’s life,” he said.
