Big Brother Naija 2018 housemate, Munirat Antoinette Lecky, also known as Anto Lecky, has disclosed how she was sexually harassed by men.
During an Instagram Live session with Linorajj, the Edo State-born reality show star said, “Yes, I have been sexually harassed. In fact, I think every woman has, because a lot people don’t even know what sexual harassment means.
“They are so used to it without knowing what it is. Even in the market, at the offices, it happens everyday. Some bosses employ you because of what they see in your body. Some men even undress you with their eyes. That’s sexual harassment. It is important we all stand together and fight against it.
She stated further: “Some people have wrong perception about me. Some people think I am rude. Some say I am too blunt. But it is what it is. I don’t like lies or faking it. I am a very honest person. I am not unnecessarily nice. I am straight. I tell people the truth most especially on social media. I keep it real. I don’t talk where it is not necessary.”
The Exercise and Sports Science graduate from the University of North Carolina also hinted on what she would have done differently in the Big Brother House if given another chance.
“I wish I can go back to the House and win the money. But I actually went there for people to know and love me for who I am. If I am asked to go back to the House, I won’t do anything differently.
“Nigerians love kissing, romance in the public, but I am not like that. I am here to make an impact through sport, entertainment and tourism. I want to use things that I love to change the world in my own little way,” she said.
We all know her as Anto, who got into the big brothers house when she was 28 years old, born in Carrboro, a town in North Carolina, United States of America. Later, after her birth, her family moved to Florida, Pembroke Pines, and there she remained before finally settling down in Lagos, Nigeria.
Anto received her education back in the United States. She owns two Master’s Degrees, one in Business Administration from North Carolina and one more in Sports Business Management between 2011 and 2013.
At her young age, Anto has an impressive CV to show and a long biography. She’s the head of Basketball Operations in CBL, the leading company for sports and entertainment in Africa. Everybody would say that this is a good job for a man, but Anto claims that this is the occupation of her dreams.
While in America, Anto used to work for Paragon Marketing and American NBA (National Basketball Association). She arrived in Nigeria mostly owing to her job. While here, she’s planning to expand her experience and create a positive impact on the world.
During her free time, Munirat enjoys things she likes to do. As she has said herself, there are no special talents she could name as her own. At least, she claims, she knows nothing about any specific abilities or skills she might own. Still, there’s something she likes to do when she doesn’t need to solve some work issues. These occupations are cooking and dancing. Besides that, of course, sports and entertainment have always been and still remain her biggest interests.
In 2018, Munirat Antoinette Lecky decided to join one of the most popular live shows in Nigeria, Big Brother Naija, and became known as Anto. She’s now a two-time ex-housemate and her staying in the house has lasted up to a semifinal. Still, she was evicted at that stage and never reached the final prize. While in the house, she had a romantic affair with Lolu Omololu.
When asked about the final prize of the show, Anto has confessed that she would want to pay back her studentdloans and give some money to her mother. As well, she has mentioned some projects she would love to start with the money.
There’s non-proved information that Anto once had serious problems with the law, but this is only gossip that has no real grounds. Sometimes, people claim that Anto used many false identities, but this is also false. So, this is what can be said about Anto BBNaija housemate. She’s a real Nigerian girl with her dreams and goals in life, her career plans and expectations. Maybe, quite soon we will hear about her new projects and a new turn in her career.
