Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) star, Angel has narrated the incidents surrounding her difficult childhood or upbringing.

In an interview with Taymesan on his "Tea with Tay" podcast on May 20, 2022, the Shine Ya Eye BBN star disclosed that her mother gave birth to her at the tender age of 16. She added that her father was also very young, although she did not mention his age.

"My mom had me when she was like 16 or 15, and my dad had me early as well. So obviously, my mom had to fend for herself and my parents weren't ... well my dad engaged my mom but I don't know what happened, with that, I never asked. They just broke up. And it was hard," she said.

According to Angel, because her mom had her as a teenager and out of wedlock, her dad's parents and other members of their family despised her.

"My dad's family never wanted me. 2019 was when they died. They never saw me. I don't know what they looked like actually. I can't tell people what my dad's parents are like," she added.

Angel concluded that she ended up being raised by her grandmother (mother's mother) since her parents were too young to be able to raise her.

"They were still children having a child. So my granny just took me. My mom left Nigeria. She started living in Ghana. I can't really tell where my dad was at the time. I was a child so everything is still pretty sketchy. Yeah, I just had to be raised by my granny who was more reliable and had just come back from London by then. So she just raised me. She was more up to the task, seeing that she had two kids of her own."
