More and more celebrities have continued to choose side, supporting a particular housemate at the ongoing #BNaija reality TV show. One of which Comedian Basketmouth has chosen to support Efe.
Yesterday, the father of two took to his Instagram to unveil Efe as his choice of housemate: “Based on logistics, I think we should help him win. No be to vote and support with mouth.” and of course someone had a problem with his choice.
The troll, who has now deleted his comment called out Basketmouth for investing his time, emotions and money in the housemate who he says “can’t speak good English” and lacked “talent”. This went the wrong way, as Basektmouth who rarely engages fans on social media finished him off.
“You’re a cheap rat poison! What’s your own talent? Hating?” Basketmouth fired back.
The troll quickly deleted his comment from the comment section, but not long after, other commenters hopped on the post to drag him for filth.
It clearly is a tensed week for many Nigerians, many of whom only recently began to catch up with the TV show which was earlier branded immoral. However, #BBNaija has led to important conversations like understanding consent/sexual assault after Kemen got disqualified for molesting housemate TBoss.
Now, folks are massively pitching their tents behind their favourite housemates. While some chose their faves based on their skills – like Bisola who is an amazing actress, others do this because a particular housemate entertained viewers.
For Efe, he has been branded the ‘realest’ for his performance at the house. He gained street credibility because he seemingly doesn’t ‘pretend’ as folks have accused other housemates of, and often communicates in the language many Nigerians grew up knowing –pidgin.
And Basketmouth is not only pitching his tent behind his housemate; he is also defending Efe from trolls.
