Nigerian On-Air-Personality, Toke Makinwa has openly advised Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) fans to stop causing a rift among the housemates of the just concluded BBNaija and let the housemates focus on how to succeed.
In the series of tweets, she shared on Friday, the 35-year-old media personality stated that the fans are doing more harm than good by putting the reality stars against each other because it can cause depression.
She wrote “Been so long since I aired my thoughts on social issues cos I’m busy building my empire but you BBrotherNaija fans really need to stop tripping and putting so much pressure on your favourite housemates.
“You guys are causing more harm than good, stop putting them against each other, the show is over let them focus on building their lives, this type of constant competition causes depression, just quit already, You can support your favourite housemate outside the house without fighting and insulting yourselves or other housemates, get your own lives on and leave them to fight this new phase, we are all tired.
“The industry is hard as it is, they are not yet even in the industry, all the noise does not bring success, it doesn’t help anyone. Ask the other housemates, some of them had to start from scratch, let people focus and do what they need to do to really succeed.”
National Sportslink understands that Toke Makinwa’s comments are coming on the heels of the perceived rift between fans of the housemates of the last season of Big Brother Naija.
These fans have come up with different names. The winner of the fourth season, Mercy Eke’s fans are known as the ‘Mercenaries’ while that of the only disqualified housemate of the season, Tacha are known as ‘Tacha Titans.’
