#BBNaija : Nigerians Reacts To Teni’s Alleged Tribal Comment on Erica

Popular Nigerian singer, Teni has been dragged on social media for indirectly referring to disqualified BBNaija housemate, Erica as ‘Omo Igbo’Teni in one of her videos, while expressing her love for Laycon said, “Eyin Omo Igbo” which means “You Igbo People” “Won ti sepe fu Laycon” meaning “they have cursed/jazzed Laycon”Teni also urged ‘Omo Igbos’ to leave Laycon alone.

Some Nigerians on social media are now of the view that the ‘billionaire’ singer was shading Erica.

This has led to a sort of tribal war on Twitter with people from the eastern part of the country referring to Teni as a tribalist.Other persons felt that the singer’s statement was harmless and that there was nothing wrong in calling an Igbo person ‘Omo Igbo’.

Here are some comments gathered on twitter.

@Afamdeluxo “Teni you don’t address Erica as “Omo Igbo”. Same way I don’t expect Rita Dominic or any Igbo celeb to address Laycon as “Onye ofe mmanụ”. Don’t be divisive in your quest for votes.

@Lollypizzle “Teni called Erica “Omo Igbo,” you are getting angry because this is Twitter. Offline, people call people “Omo igbo” “Aboki” “Alhaja” etc, and we all live in peace but once it’s Twitter, you all are moving mad and stupidly sensitive because you have 10mb data. Oshisco.”

@NoniiRoyal “It is not the meaning of a word that is the problem but the tone and the context. I hate that Omo Igbo with passion, Yorubas use it in a derogatory way.”

@SiriKwado “Nobody will see anything wrong in Teni addressing Erica as “Omo Igbo” but if an Igbo celeb like Genevieve Nnaji addresses Laycon as “Onye ofe mmanụ” in a solidarity video for Erica just like Teni did, there will be outrage everywhere. Hypocritical lots!

@Iamriel7 “If you think Teni saying omo igbo is demeaning, I beg that you stop calling foreigners ‘Onyibo people’

@Tonybright01 “If you say Teni was curssing by referring to Erica as “ Omo Igbo” then Erica was also cursing by calling your favorite housemate ‘chicken drumstick’ let’s all be cursing together.”
