Uriel Oputa: Hi guys.. so I would say the most important part of my body would be my mouth… because what you speak out of your mouth will come to pass.
Blecyn George Monsi: Could you share with us what Self Love means to you?
Uriel Oputa: Self love is loving both the good and bad side of yourself. I Learnt that the hard way. I love me even if i’m not perfect.
Blecyn George Monsi: Kindly share with us the difference between “Self Love” and being “self-centred?
Uriel Oputa: When you have self love, you are able to see things differently your mind becomes more open, you value everything and anyone around you,… Self centred; you are not able to see past yourself you don’t care about what others think or feel, your vibes are negative. Its a endless circle.
I learnt to love myself at my lowest point. I had nothing and the only way to get myself out of this was to tell myself I love you.
BGM: How would an individual know when he/she has “Self Love” ?
UO: When you’re able to accept who you truly are, when you live for yourself and not society, when you understand that it’s okay to be me, even if i’m different.
BGM: Would you describe a greedy man as someone who has excessive self-love? or Greed is a different ball game?
UO: Greed and love are two different things it does not connect, a greedy man does not love but is possessive!
BGM: What does self-love have to do with finding oneself and also getting new things for yourself?
UO: To actually love yourself you need to understand who you are!! When that is understood, it enables you to understand your strength= growth =new things.
BGM: Are there signs of true “Self-love”? If yes, please share.
UO: Peace.., peace of mind.
BGM: Does unconditional self-love means bringing yourself first before others, e.g your parents? or your kids?
UO: No not really. You just feel content with yourself which could result in you putting others first.
BGM: Back to you @Urielmusicstar could you please share with us how the journey after Big Brother Nigeria house has been?
UO: Work work… it has brought out the business woman in me, in my mind i feel anything is possible, but also it has enhanced the feeling of fear.
BGM: Would you say you are you more of a hunter or a gatherer?
BGM: What three concerns about your life and business future keep you up at night?

BGM: Tell us your greatest mistake and how you were able to accept and live with it?
UO: Wow deep… loving my Ex BF then I did not have self love if I did I would have known he was not serious and i would not have wasted 5 years. How did I learn to deal with my Ex?… I became successful, I loved myself, built myself grew my self into the positive woman i am now.
