Last weekend Idris of Tanzania won the BBA hotshots and many people did not see this coming. Ugandans were disappointed their girl Ellah was evicted when she was so close to winning the prize and the boy. But no country was more vocal about their disappointment as Nigeria.
Nigeria has won a couple of times so we can understand why they found it shocking that their boy Tayo came in 2nd to the Tanzania’s Idris. Nigerians felt that Tayo who represented Nigeria deserved the money and they didn’t stop at expressing themselves on social media.
Nigerians vented their frustrations against Big Brother claiming that their vote counting systems were faulty, that they only gave the awards to Tanzania to appease the East African audience, that they would not take part in Big Brother come next year, Tweeter was on fire with a lot of accusations.
Our very own big hitters in the music industry were also engaged in this battle of who should have won. Davy of the ‘Aye’ fame, who is from also Nigeria was quick to post on social media claiming ‘N they cheat again lol!”
And the Tanzanian Diamond who recently triumphed over Davido at the Channel O Awards retaliated by saying “Thank God we have cheated on another one.” This didn’t seem to amuse Davido as all revelers who attended his show last night with Team No Sleep at the Laftaz Lounge where he stormed out in protest after the Dj played his collabo with Diamond “Number One”
From friends to foes over Big Brother now that is serious.
