“She was like, ‘Okay, then do what you need to do. But if you want it, you have to learn how to get it on your own’.
“So I just said, ‘Cool, okay, I’m going back to dancing and I’m moving to another continent’.”
The talented performer has earned various awards including first place in the German Championship Freestyle Latin competition.
Oti joined Strictly in 2015 for its thirteenth series and was partnered with boxer Anthony Ogogo.
The popular star has spoken on using her platform to raise awareness of topics close to her heart, including Black Lives Matter.
She recently shared a post from fellow dancer Ashley Banjo that highlighted the importance of equality.
In the same interview, Oti detailed how she does not always speak out about her views publicly.
She said: “I have so many opinions about [racism], but they’re personal. I don’t feel I can represent everyone because people have different experiences.”
