Reality tv star, Venita Akpofure took to social media to drop her opinion about the winners of the Big Brother Naija show, including the mentality and emotional priorities of Nigerians that watch the show.
She said in her opinion, the winner of BBN reflect the mentality of an average Nigerian. Venita Akpofure tweeted:
“The winner of BBN every year reflects the general mentality and emotional priorities of the average Nigerian (who lives and works in Nigeria) at the current time of the running season. Argue with your ancestors. This is my opinion.”
This opinion did not sit well with supporters of this year’s winner and many others as the Big Brother housemates just lost a colleague, Rico Swavey after his car accident. Many were of the notion that it was not the best time to talk about such an ‘insensitive’ topic.
Here are some of the replies she got:
