Bio: I am glad I am part of this show. Tush my apartment is exactly what I need right now because of the apartment I live in currently is congested, not so good for our health because whenever it rains in the night/midnight we don’t get to sleep. We are 7 people living in a room/parlour apartment and it’s not so healthy for us because we don’t even have a good bed. No rug or tiles, in fact the fittings in the apartment is nothing to write about. And we all know health is wealth
The environment alone is not healthy and talking about the apartment, we get to sleep in a crooked way at night.
In summary, we need our apartment to be Tushed for us to have a peaceful life at home and for us to be happy going home.
Thanks in anticipation of your favourable response

Name: Ifeanyi Abel Chukwu
Bio: I decided to embark on this Reality Show to be able to Tush my Apartment as a result of being a low income earner who has large family to cater for hence there is nothing left at the end of every month for me to save and to take part of it to renovate my apartment.
Furthermore , my motive to participate is predicated on the premise that my accommodation has a lot of work to be carried out. Like the Zincs are leaking and this is rainy season. Also the floor needs to be broken and a proper German floor will be constructed to stop water coming out of the ground. These are the challenges that brought me to this game show.
