Tayo Faniran is a 27 year old top model representing Nigeria at the Big brother Africa house. Tayo and his girlfriend were expecting a child together before he went into the house. The news came in yesterday during his diary sessions with Biggie that his girlfriend had delivered a baby boy, this is their first child together. The baby has been named Akintoye and both mother and baby are said to be doing great. Tayo could not hold back tears as he walked out of the diary room and shared the good news with his fellow housemates. Big Brother treated him to a box of cigarette and cognac to celebrate the new baby.
Tayo is a top model in South Africa has graced fashion pages of major fashion magazines and featured in runway shows in Africa and Europe. He was introduced into modelling by his cousin at age 17 and his big break was in the industry was in 2010 when he signed a 3yr modelling contract with Star modelling agency, Johannesburg. This same year he took part in a huge commercial for UK based energy firm. The handsome model once said during an interview that his unique score point is his eyes. Shortly after the baby news, Tayo realized he was up for eviction this week. We hope he sails through BUT if he doesn’t then he could go back home to his new bundle of joy. Congrats Tayo and all the best.
