“Most (people) hate what they desire and wish to be” – Funmi Iyanda speaks on the “deep love-hate” for #BBNaija’s TBoss

Media Entrepreneur Funmi Iyanda, in a series of tweets on Sunday night after the Grand Finale of the Big Brother Naija Reality TV show, said that one of the housemates, TBoss “unconsciously” struck many people’s deepest insecurities because she is “the lightest, most apparently refined, more foreign and confident female”.

Many social media commenters had tagged TBoss as the “unreal, difficult to get along with, and arrogant” housemate. Others had defined her as a representation of “class”, “confidence” and “elegance”.

From social media comments and polls, TBoss was one of the top choices to take home the N25m and SUV grand prize. She eventually became the second runner up in the game.

Efe took home the grand prize on Sunday after raking 57.61% of the total votes which the host the lightest, most apparently refined, more foreign and confident female put at over 26 million, while Bisola was the first runner up.

    Yes! I didn’t watch the show or even bother to follow it online. All I know is that there was a very clear trend in the type of girls that were rejoicing over this girl’s loss on my Facebook timeline yesterday. I couldn’t help but smile to myself.
    I just hope they don’t pass on their insecurities to their daughters. Itzz ga ju!

      really i just cant justify “the hate”, the joy they derived seeing her leave the house, She was not my favourite housemate but to derive such pleasure hatred for someone you dont even know that much wasnt cool at all, it almost seems as if a fight will break out if bbnaija dare mention her to be the winner.

      i totally disagree with funmi. Funmi maybe u want to be white, afterall you bleached your skin and got a nose job. i didn’t hate tboss at all, the person i didnt like was bisola and TTT. If a girl is beautiful, at least guys would take her side and she’d be closer to the men, but in this case, Tboss literally didnt get along with anyone. the guys didnt like her. How is that possible? She was just unlikeable, and it wasn’t because of her beauty or skin tone (she’s not the most beautiful girl to ever be in BBnaija), but her attitude and the fact that she acted like she was more Romanian than Nigerian. She could’ve contested for BB Romania.

    I totally agree with her! I adored TBOSS in the house. Reasons are: She reciprocated the hate towards her with Love. She was classy and neat, she was always cleaning and washing. How can someone who clean and wash even for others be called proud. She didn’t gossip, or talk down on anyone. She represented, Naija to the fullest as she spoke pigin English fluently and even spoke good English better. She is my winner! Haters can keep hating but her lifting has just started

    if you’ve never seen the show, how come you can conclude that tboss is the “lightest,most apparently refined, more foreign, and confident female”?
    it irritates me soooo much when one person, one person o will just conclude on what “most” Nigerians feel, you know how many we be?….I know I don’t want to be like my tboss or any other person and it’s not about how I feel about her,NO…. I’m comfortable being me and I can strive to get better each day.

    I never believed haters existed until I witnessed the hate on tboss online. people even go to her page to say trash. people hate what they cannot understand. They also hate her because she’s BEAUTIFUL. Tboss sure has insecurities and she makes it so obvious and that’s not really a good thing. I love and will always support her. She’s so shy and reserve and people take that as pride. I wish her all the best from my heart seriously.

      April 10, 2017 at 2:08 pm

      Halima, you spoke my mind. What’s interesting is I (and most of the people that voted for her) started voting because of the hate. It was so much and I began to wonder if it was the same Big Brother franchise I had been following for years. Never in the history of the game have I ever seen this much hate. Just because she is not the ‘regular normal’ around here. Interestingly, I found Bisola more annoying than Tboss and with tendencies to be a bigger bully.

      Interestingly, Tboss’ fanbase never sent out the hate and nastiness Team Bisola/Team Efe did to them. Which I wonder why no one is seeing. I wish Tboss the very best too.

      My [email protected] @Halima, that is what Nigerians like, people who speak mediocre English like Efe, faking humility and speaking dirty bursting kidney and never endings irrational slangs that does not make sense!!! They hate confident people like Tboss who will not take shit from no one!!! Although I did not follow the show, because after Bisola’s cray cray level!!! I stopped watching!!!I see Tbosd going on to make more than 25m with the endorsements she will get!!!!

      Did you notice that tboss’s page is not only page where haters went comment.

      Did you notice that Tboss and Efe are not the only contestants. That other females contestants like Bisola has haters too.

      I think it’s people like you and Funmi that needs to be checked, Seriously.

      Can we see the algorithm u and Funmi useductive to arrive on your conclusion.

      We’re you expectin her to be favored just because she seems more classy and bi-racial.

      Didn’t you notice that Gifty is bi-racial too?

      That majority of Nigerian voted for someone that they can relate well with, should be applauded.

      End of!!!

      Ps: No matter how much Funmi bleaches her self, she can be oyibo. Trying to rub your insecurities on us will not work. Shior!!!

    First off, as my ‘name’ suggests… I am black and very much proud of it! I do not have the slightest wish to be oyinbo. Tboss is a fine babe, hands down. I actually liked her tattoos and piercings bla di bla.. Now, imagine if Tboss had a dope personality. Imagine if she didn’t have a condescending attitude. Imagine if she was a proud Nigerian/African – you can still be mixed race and be proud of both races. From watching the show she talked non stop about Romania and not of her country of birth (from what I heard her say, she grew up in Naija and only went to Romania for university). See Trevor Noah as a case of being proud of your blackness. Imagine if Tboss didn’t manipulate Miyonce, Gifty and Debbie (worst was when she had a fit and blamed sweet Debbie for not remembering the National Anthem – I say ‘remembering as it may have been the case that she forgot under the pressure of the truth/dare game and knowing that millions of Africans are watching). Imagine if she didn’t cry like a sore loser when she lost games and in turn suffered a serious case of bad belle. Imagine if she was open to being free enough to just move (small small) to a beat – not dance but at least show she was having a good time (each to their own also). It’s nice to see people not take themselves too seriously. People can somehow relate to that. My opinion is that Tboss could have had more votes if she came down from her high horse and got back down to earth. Humility is key. She was however, interesting to watch. She kept us glued. This is what I learnt from Efe – put God first in everything, believe in yourself – no matter your background and put in your 100% in everything. Bisola, an extremely talented woman who will go far! No be lies, oyinbo or no oyinbo, if you can be humble and relate to your neighbour, the world is your oyster. Peace and love!

    I might not agree to Funmis choice of words………. but I get what she’s trying to say.
    I myself have experienced abit of this on first moving to Nigeria……….. my first job I got in all young, happy and ready to work. looking all fly in my best work suit.
    Went in, HR introduced me to my would be supervisor. I smiled good morning, she didn’t even say anything she just looked me up and down and said ‘madam, this one that you brought for me, that is even looking bigger than me, hope she can take instructions’.
    She asked me what I studied in school and what Uni I attended. I mentioned a uni outside Nigeria.
    Since that day, anything I did wrong. She must respond……….. I thought you said you schooled abroad, how come you don’t know this or that (note this is my first job).
    Asked me where I lived, mentioned somewhere on the island. They would ask me how are you going home. Are you taking the staff bus. I will say, No I have my mums driver. They will just roll their eyes.
    And one thing in this life is I don’t look down on ppl. My dad came from nothing but he always instilled in us never looking down on people. We had maids but we were still expected to tidy our own rooms, wash our clothes etc.
    They will try bringing me down making snide remarks. You that you are ajebutter, hope you eat this and that.
    Mind you it was the women always doing this. I tried being friends even brought breakfast in the mornings to share.
    But the guys were always warm and friendly to me, showing me around, taking me to the cafeteria. Putting me through on my work etc.
    I’m also the sort that doesn’t mix quite easily at first, but later warm up to people and even like staying by myself, they took that as being proud and arrogant.
    I had my guy friends we would go to lunch together, meet on the weekends etc.
    I just gave up at the end, I am who I am. I’m not being fake, I’m not being unreal because I don’t speak broken English or Yoruba at work.
    TBoss is not perfect, nobody is. We all have our flaws. I just see her as someone with a good heart, very unsure of herself . I don’t see her as proud or arrogant as people say.
    They said she didn’t mix, do you know some people don’t easily mix( that is exactly me). It takes us time to make friends and warm up to people.
    Let’s learn to accept people as they are, so far the person is not in anyway hurting you, learn to accept we are all different, coming from different backgrounds and walks of life.

      April 10, 2017 at 3:27 pm

      Maybe if you had bothered to watch or even watched the finale you would have realized that the videos online were edited.
      ‘Private jet men are hitting on me’ – after which she said ‘but did I answer them? I’m here struggling for 25million’
      ‘If you give me the money I will spend it in a week’ – after which she said i have bills, debts and responsibilities.

      It’s funny how you people just sit down and type and assume a lot of stuff without actually watching the show.

      25M means different things to different people. To everybody its a lot of money, but how 25m will serve me is different from how 25m will serve another person.
      To someone that is poverty wiped from you for life and that of your family. You may need to move your family and buy a bungalow, start a business, assist your parents/siblings and you people’s life is forever changed.
      To another person(even someone sensible like me). If I buy a new CRV 2017 Model that is already 15m and 10m left. I will probably be expected to buy Treasury Bills , Commercial papers and other investments. Give some to charity.
      Realistically I cant buy a property with this amount except I buy the type Lekki Gardens flat or I do mortgage and have to still make payments of 350/400k a month. which I may not be able to afford on a monthly salary.
      My parents don’t need the money, my siblings don’t. I may just take everyone to Dubai on a trip and that will cost me at least 3m.
      Pls tell me how much is left after doing all that.
      There is nothing absolutely nothing wrong in how both people have spent the money.
      But money means different things to different people.
      N25m means something different for Efe.
      And it means something different to TBoss.

    I voted for TBoss every time she was up. I am somewhat a fan. However, I plead to dispute what Funmi Iyanda tweeted. How can people just hate her because she is a suggestion of Oyibo? How does that make sense to anyone? I know why she attracted hate but I chose to ignore it, and voted for her. Got my folks to vote for her too. Just because I’m always a sucker for the “underdog” story. I can’t deny that she was manipulative, blamed others for her own errors and cried at every bruise of her queenship but that was what made her TBoss. We can’t all be the same. But this Funmi of a woman should not come and be unfortunate this Holy Week. What does her “oyiboness” have to do with anything. Gifty never met her father or knows who he was but even Stevie Wonder can tell she is half-caste. Why was she not hated? So please woman, take several seats and love TBoss without causing extra hate from the haters. Shut up and let the baby girl speak for herself.

    April 10, 2017 at 2:31 pm

    I completely agree. In Nigeria it’s difficult being a beautiful girl, if you’re light skinned double wahala. As far as I’m concerned Tboss was her real self….yes, she may not have been the most intelligent/brightest person on the block and she sometimes says things that she shouldn’t. …but that was just her being her.
    People say she was arrogant. ..I thought she was quite shy and overly sensitive.
    Some housmates quarrelled with her and wanted to see her downfall….Kemen (the molester), Bally (who she fought with bcos of his nasty toilet manners. ..dude didn’t flush the toilet after use), Bisola (who I think was irked that TTT was attracted to Tboss despite all her insisting that it was ok)…..should I go on? One of the first things Efe even told her at the beginning of the show was ‘I never get along with fair girls’……who says that?

    From experience, it’s insecure girls and guys who know they can never have you who are the most vindictive in this kinda things.

    Girls who are secure in their own beauty will never hate on Tboss bcos we can all relate.

  16. Frida

    April 10, 2017 at 2:36 pm

    Exactly team point I made below….girls who are secure in their own beauty will never have a problem with Tboss. Uriel was even my favourite in the house cos she made me laugh. It was all this hate that made me notice Tboss.

    Even that her N25million question…I still see nothing wrong with what she said. Of course N25 million can finish in a week. Can it even buy a house in lekki phase 1?. Buying a piece of property in Laos can finish your N25million in one day. Haba

    Pontificating about a show you did not watch based on subjective commentary from social media? Hmmm….

    If you actually watched the show, you would know this is a far fetched conclusion. TBoss was a whiny, self-absorbed, self-involved, petulant woman who had an entitlement complex. Most people actually did not start rooting for TBoss until that ugly Kemen incident when the housemates jumped on the blame bandwagon and bashed TBoss before even finding out what actually transpired. I also rooted for TBoss and was infuriated at the injustice that was meted out to her.

    But apart from that, what was it about TBoss that was endearing- was it her numerous crying episodes especially when she lost the HoH tasks or her recent snarling at her only real friend in the house- Debbie-Rise for making her sing the National Anthem in a Truth or Dare game or her nominating Miyonse – her supposed love interest- for eviction and acting surprised when he got evicted? She also gossiped about other housemates too with her friends so what exactly is so great about her, or was it her inability to accept when she is wrong or even accept an apology with grace? I think Bally got it exactly right when he described her and what it was like to live with TBoss. I am almost certain that very few of the people who rooted for TBoss would be able to live with her in such close confines for an extended period. She had her good moments but let’s not act like she was this epitome of grace and charm.

    Please, TBoss wasn’t even the most attractive or privileged. Many would argue that Gifty was more attractive. She was also light skinned. Bally and Uriel also came from relatively more privileged backgrounds, so what is the basis for this summation that people hated TBoss because inherently they wanted to be like her?

    I was one of the undecideds and was almost tilting towards voting for TBoss but i eventually could not bring myself to vote for her purely because of her unattractive character traits.

      This has nothing to do with looks or skin color…

    Two major Nigerian tribes- Yoruba and Igbo are very loud by their DNA. These two groups of people form the crux of the fanbase of shows lile BBNaija. Being quiet and reserved and somewhat shy isn’t a Nigerian thing so TBoss did a spectacular job by having gone in that show despite her ‘un-Nigerian’ personality. Since childhood, I have always been referred to as being proud and arrogant because I am very reserved and quite shy. In the neighbourhoods and at schools and the worst experience at work- a foremost Nigerian Bank (the one that most of you have an account with)- I was hated on. I left Nigeria quite depressed but very convinced that I should always be true my personality and never try to adjust to suit anyone. It’s not easy for me to quickly get along with people and that’s just who I am. It takes some time and it’s not even with every and anyone. Now in the US, people just call me quiet, I feel loved by many people and I just feel more confident knowing that people get my personality and do not feel it’s an issue. If you are the quiet and shy type, Nigerians can ruin you.

    I wish the very beautiful TBoss the very best of luck in her future endeavours. She will be alright, I am sure. For the most part, quiet people are very strong people.

      “I left Nigeria quite depressed but very convinced that I should always be true my personality and never try to adjust to suit anyone. It’s not easy for me to quickly get along with people and that’s just who I am”

      I hope you have left some room for self development and growth for your own sake. I have a similar personality type to you and I have learnt over the years that it is to my own advantage to take the time to grow and get better especially when it comes to dealing with people. Even if you are not naturally inclined …please learn as you will always need people one way or the other to move forward and get things done. So do retain your integrity but also learn to be better

      I am shy to,A lot of people hate me in my place of work cos i rarely talk, they take it as arrogance. But let’s not mis interpret things, if you watch BBNaija from the beginning, you will know TBoss is pure evil. See how she planned Miyonse’s /Gifty eviction. She’s super talented too, dont want her vagi.. to be massaged, yet requested for a naked massage. Parade her boobs everywhere, only idiots and nonentities will mistake this.

    Now I’m not condoning or supporting the hate Tboss received, I believe we should be kind to people at all times regardless of our differences. However everyone who watched big brother and who is honest with themselves would understand that she’s actually a very intolerant, entitled person who actually makes a big deal out of little things and more than 80% of the people supporting her and what not wouldn’t be able to live a week in the same house with her if she’s not their family member. In my opinion the hate was excessive and if I was in that position I like to think I’d act differently from how most of the housemates did because my parents raised me well, however her character was greatly flawed. Tboss was far from being my favorite person in the house and no I’m not jealous of her complexion(I love being dark skinned), I’m not jealous of her supposed money (thank God I’m not broke) and I most definitely don’t want to be her but I’d have just preferred if she was more tolerant. This is is really the problem we have with a lot of Nigerians; it’s not every time people are just hating or they’re just jealous or they want to be like you. Sometimes you genuinely do have character flaws that need to be worked on, end of story. This is not a hateful comment and I genuinely wish her the best in her future endeavors. I think she has a lot of potential. However I think every Nigerians take home message should be regardless of what side of life you’re on, people are different and we should be accepting and tolerant of this fact. A person with true character should be able to be friends with a gateman and president at the same time, we can’t live life thinking our way is the only way.

    Aunty Funmi goofed.!!!

    She did not watch the show but she was quick to jump to conclusions and even insulted Nigerians on top wetin she no know.

    Her tweets on the show are the most silly stuff i have heard in a while….and it was more disappointing coming from her. I actually thought she was smart……don’t think so anymore.

    Who wants to be like TBoss?? Who??

    She showed zero talent in house, called other housemates ‘idiots’ on international TV, got angry and blamed someone when she messed up by not knowing her country’s national anthem and so on.

      “Never seen the show till this painfully dragged out final”..please read well. It doesn’t mean she only watched the final live show, it means she watched the final week, the last 5. Judging from all the things that happened in the house this past week, it’s enough for aunty funmi to form an opinion.

    • dips

      April 10, 2017 at 4:21 pm


      So…..your understanding of “Never seen the show till this painfully dragged out final”……is she watched the FINAL WEEK??? Because you were in her mind when she tweeted that rubbish???

      Meanwhile, the other viewers that watched the show…….from the beginning………hated her because she be ‘oyinbo’ abi???

      You and Aunty Funmi…….una be the same.

      Third, ask yourself how many times you’v blamed someone else for your own mistakes?

      She didn’t murder, poison and put a gun to someone’s head, she simply over-reacted based on her own embarrasment and we all over react most times so please drink alomo, there’s no basis for some of your comments

      She then goes ahead to tweet that most Nigerians hate people that look like ‘oyinbo’.

      What sort of stupid statement is that???

But please if you adore genuinely love Tboss, let her know after all this is over that the world is made up so many different people rich, poor, fat, loud, gay, straight and we should not look down on ppl just cos they seem not be in our league in the name of being real. It was just a classical case of judge not so that ye will not be judged. Please go easy with harsh comments cos beneath it all am sure she is a very beautiful soul and I am glad she spoke on the private jet issue. I saw it for what it was: I am here to work hard to make my own money. One love.

    In the path to self discovery, you will experience hate, ridicule and people turning on you. Sometimes, this can be from family, friends, or people who just don’t want to confront their shortcomings and so focus on yours.

    It was easier to like Bisola, the obvious bully because she was the average Basira around. TBoss being highly insecure and sensitive was called proud because she didn’t look like she had weaknesses and honestly Nigerians have a limited emotional vocabulary (you can’t blame us , we’re dealing with NEPA here, no time to understand things like identity crisis, insecurity etc except when we want to insult someone with it).

    I had major identity crisis at a point in my life and few people will agree with me because I looked like I had a lot going for me. I was dealing with a lot and people called me selfish, controlling, manipulative etc.

    However, that period forced me to learn about myself and the world and emotional intelligence is something I score highly in, I know myself, my triggers and how to get things done with the least force, most importantly, I am a serene person and I do not rise to anger and hate (except I want to to prove a point)

    Tboss faced bullying growing up (she said so herself, maybe that’s why she’s insecure even into her 30s). BBN might have been her way of finally dealing with her demons and going out there.

    That said, Aunty TBoss, the fact that you are not wrong does not mean you are right. It will be simplistic to just say you were hated because of your looks, mixed race etc as it stops you from growing. You were too sensitive and your emotional intelligence is actually almost non-existent. Let’s not even talk about how you couldn’t identify key stakeholders and how to work around them. Situational awareness nko,…… babu, you didn’t have

    I hope you learn from this and grow so that the final version of you is a wonderful masterpiece. Remember, when life makes you put up with mean and hateful people, think of them as sandpaper, they may scratch you, rub you the wrong way, but you end up polished, while the sandpaper will be worn out and ugly.

    Then to TBoss’ sister, your kind should be studied as an icon of true sisterhood.

    Why did Eve win with such a huge margin? Ok, I’ll educate you. The same “Nigerians” you’re talking about could see themselves in him. We’ve felt his pains and his struggles. He was relateable to the majority of “Nigerians.” So it was either Efe or nobody. That’s why he won with such a huge margin!

    Funmi iyanda, I have so much respect for you as a strong woman and a journalist but pardon me your statements are extremely stupid…
    Tboss perceived herself classier and better than the rest of the housemates…
    Nobody was neat enough for her, her pretended fastidious attitude was irritating… if you are gemophobic or claustrophobic, why show up to the house in the first place?
    All the trouble big brother took in throwing parties for them, flying DJs in she always isolated herself at the parties…nobody is saying rock a man indecently or get stupidly drunk but at least dance a little and show enthusiasm and gratitude…nah not tboss always forming windsor
    Yes it was game but tboss ensured she fended off any possible friendships so blatantly… zero tact
    Then the private jet statement and the I can spend the prize money in one week shit..those statements resonated arrrogance period! Anybody in big brother house is first and foremost hoping to improve their financial positions by winning and maybe expose their various talents and skills or ‘sell their market… all that meant she was not supposed to be in the house with ‘guttersnipes’ like the other housemates…tboss felt to cool with herself and was unapologetically nasty
    These were some of the reasons I think the voting public didn’t find her appealing not that gibberish you tweeted..
    Light-skinned and bi racial or multi racial women are liked in nigeria eg lola okoye, eku edewor etc because they are not narcissistic or arrogant… was she the only ‘oyinbo’ in the house? When the other ‘oyinbos’ ttt and gifty messed up we threw them out

    • coolio

      April 10, 2017 at 4:59 pm

      Lola Okoye and Eku Edewor are liked in Nigeria?
      Are you for real, Lola that they keep saying she’s proud, Peter’s family doesn’t like her. She feels she’s better than them because she’s form a more affluent background. She never smiles in pictures, always looking glummy. They even drag her baby Aliona into the pic that one never smiles like her mother. Meanwhile iv met Lola at her kids fun Day and she looked very down to earth, quiet but approachable.
      Eku Edewor don’t even tell me about the hate that one receives. Her famous magazine cover that they said she looked like a slave master with her black slaves.
      They even judge her skinny frame.
      Not everybody can relate with being underprivileged………………. is that a sin? Shld I change who I am just to be able to fit into a box that is termed acceptable by Nigerians ?
      You get a job, they say Oh, its cos she schooled abroad. It’s cos she knows the MD/Chairman.
      Same Tboss was accused of having a romantic relationship with BB that is just a voice o and not the owner of BBA but an employee who also gets paid.
      Next they said she’s sleeping with Chairman of PayPorte Haba.
      I guess Buhari is her next victim.

    I do not entirely agree with everything Aunty Funmi said but people where quick to judge TBoss without even giving her a chance. Her piercing and tattoos was an issue, many termed it un-Nigerian. Even if she didn’t do most of the things she supposedly did and what was hated for, she wouldn’t have won. She doesn’t fit in to the Nigerian grass to grace narrative. She wore her emotions on her sleeve. She was 2nd runner up even with all that Hate. She was tagged dumb because she wasn’t confident. Bisola was even more flirtatious and more of a bully but her sins were forgiven because she isn’t TBoss. They packed a group or artists into one house and the one without any knowledge of Arts was termed talentless. I don’t know how you compare a shy girl who lived all her life in house with just her immediate family with someone who is already in the movie industry, gone to several shows and a social media sensation. One has to be more confident than the other. I wish TBoss well and I hope she handles the amount of hate she’s currently receiving from sore winners. 25m isn’t a lot money and yes can be finished in less than a week. The sky is her starting point and I hope she attains higher goals to put her haters to shame. Tokunbo Idowu you can be more, you have the platform.

    This is annoying, this is especially annoying because she didn’t watch the show, and came to an uninformed opinion about it, and more annoying because I especially love Funmi and more annoying because we allllllllll know the special privileged white people and light skin people are accorded in Nigeria. Someone up there was complaining about how light skin people are treated, am I being punked right now?

    If you didn’t follow the show, Tboss was arrogant, she was used to being the center of attention and came into the house and realized, oh wow the world doesn’t revolve around me. People missed the point of that private jet statement, it wasn’t about her spending the money in a week, she was trying to make a point that the way she looked could get her the money in Nigeria, but just didn’t want to give herself to a man. She threw around statements like this time and time again. I know no one is perfect, but her inability to accept she’s wrong ticked me and when others would apologize to her, she would often take this route where she would make them explain and explain and apologize and apologize some more to her, and then she would milk the situation some more. Can we talk about how sensitive she was? Who cries about being called Olodo? like, are you serious? You cannot possible survive the world as an egg, cause not everyone has the patience to carry you.

    And oh my God let’s not get into how manipulative she was, lord goodness, it was almost scary for me to watch. The way she looked actually worked for her, where the guys gave her attention even though she had a personality of a chalk board and refused to try thing, but guess who always pushed her to try things, THE HOUSEMATES? Why did she come to the house then. Pls let’s drop this beauty, oyibo shit, that was actually her only selling point. Bisola received farrrrrrrrrrrr more hate than she did.

    Similar case of people telling you to be yourself and then judge or hate you afterwards . You cannot just please the world . Nigerians hated her for no good reasons, and this is to show that emotions can easily be bought or influenced . What’s the big deal saying she was going to sought things out with the 25M under one week? Or was it the ‘SPEND’ that was misinterpreted? Some were even ranting saying she was anti social, reserved, bossy, bla bla bla, people have different personality so whichever way you perceive them it’s best we don’t allow it influence us negatively. The hating was over rated abeg. Too much.

    by outside viewers and I’m wondering if the people who make these comments
    actually watch the Big Brother Naija show or they just depend on opinions of
    biased TBoss fans.
    Nigerians have been accused of hating on TBoss because she’s beautiful, light
    skinned, has piercings and tattoos all over. Have you ever stopped to consider
    that she could be disliked for reasons other than these?? Well, it’s time to put
    some things straight.
    Let’s start from the origin of the intense dislike for her. TBoss was an item with
    one of the housemates Miyonse. She was ALWAYS with Miyonse, cuddling up or
    simply chilling with him and NEVER mingled with the other housemates(HMs) .
    While she was bonding with Miyonse, the other HMs bonded with each other
    and formed alliances amongst themselves.
    She lashed out at Miyonse during parties if he dared to dance with any other
    HM. She scolded him, sulked and had the poor young man begging for like
    forever for her forgiveness. When she was finally tired of Miyonse, she
    nominated him, the only friend she had in that house at that time, for possible
    eviction citing distraction as her reason. Of course, Miyonse was evicted. Poor
    boy didn’t even see it coming. She shed a few trademark crocodile tears
    and latched on to Gifty, whom she had earlier detested because she felt
    Miyonse liked her. Their common grounds for bonding? Their beaus Miyonse
    and Soma were both evicted same day and they ‘mourned’ together. Shortly
    after Gifty was evicted, TBoss moved on to Debie-Rise (DR). When all her close
    friends except DR were evicted, she was left with the HMS she refused to
    mingle with and whom had formed their bonds without her. She turned around
    to accuse them of conspiring against her and acting her.
    Away from her being antisocial, TBoss never danced during parties. She
    glammed up for parties and stood well away from the gyrating HMS who
    danced away during the parties. She claimed she doesn’t know how to dance
    and simply refused to move her body to any rhythm. She just sipped her wine in
    her corner, ate out of the barbecued meat and went inside when the party was
    over. This she did for nine good weeks.
    She complained incessantly during tasks … from the wet overalls , to how yucky
    the task dish was, bla, bla, bla. While the other HMS braced up to the tasks and
    gave it their best shots, TBoss grumbled her way through tasks.
    If she lost during the head of house (HOH) or arena tasks, the viewers will have
    earfuls of her complaints. When she feels the complaints aren’t making much
    impact, she resorts to crocodile tears.
    TBoss is so unforgiving! Woe betide any of the HMs that offends her … she’ll
    have that HM apologising for hours eg Bally. She had DR apologising severally
    over mundane issues , even when she TBoss, was clearly wrong.
    What put the final nail in her coffin was her inability to recite the national
    anthem. We all know that for such shows like Big Brother Africa , Big Brother
    Naija or other reality shows where one is an ambassador of one’s country, it
    might be required of you to answer questions pertaining to the flag of your
    country, your country’s national anthem, pledge, President, currency, etc. Even if
    TBoss had been away in Romania and couldn’t recall these , she should have
    sat down and learnt them. But no, she didn’t. She made a fool of herself and
    guess who her fall guy was ?? Debie Rise her bestie! She blamed DR for
    embarrassing her on TV when she knew she was working hard to win the
    money. Even when DR explained that she had no such intentions and
    apologised profusely, TBOSS kept ranting and refused to forgive.
    When she was finally called upon to tell viewers why she should be win the
    money, she referred to her fellow HMS as ‘these people’ with a scornful
    expression on her face. And her plans for the money if she wins? She’ll throw a
    party and take her mum on a vacation first before she figures out what next to
    do with the money.
    Funny thing is … tell people that say TBoss is hated to list out just five (5)
    reasons why she should be voted for and why she’s MORE DESERVING of the
    N25m and SUV than any other HM. They’ll tell you “she’s hated because she’s
    half caste”, “she’s hated because she’s got piercings and tatoos”, bla bla bla.
    Ask for more concrete points why youll spend your HARD EARNED MONEY
    (N30/sms) voting for TBoss and they’ll all slink away into the woodwork they
    crawled out from.
    Who will like an antisocial , arrogant person who feels she’s better than all the
    housemates? Who will like a fellow HM who refers to her fellow HMs as ‘these
    people’ ? Who will like someone who finds it so hard to forgive and cries over
    silly issues? Who will like someone who has zero values for loyalty to friends
    and nominates her friend and puts down her other closest friend in the house?
    Who needs an enemy when you’ve got TBoss as a friend??
    Why should I, a Nigerian, vote for someone who’s got more pride in and talks
    more about Romania than her country of origin, Nigeria, which she’s
    Point is … Nobody hates TBoss because she’s beautiful or light skinned.
    Rather, she’s disliked for her stinking attitude that SUCKS! Go chew on that *in
    TBoss’ voice*

    I watched eviction shows every sunday and I always wondered why T-boss felt the need to proof to Nigerians that she was from Romania. Am certain that she was treated like a second class citizen in Romania so why didn’t she fully embrace Naija?

    A flip side to all of this is to say that T-boss played the oyibo card and it worked against her. I mean we live in Nigeria where a beautiful lady is judged by the “yellowness” of her skin and the length of her Brazilian/Peruvian hair. We have allowed oyibo man’s definition of beauty to become our standard. We also live in  a society where oyibo people are regarded as demi-gods and given preferential treatment. It really doesn’t matter if the oyibo is block headed or ill mannered, they get away with pretty much anything!!!

    But T-boss was the exception to the general rule! She back stabbed Miyonse, put housemates up for eviction out of spite, was overly manipulative, proud, boastful, couldn’t sing the national anthem and due to her insecurity, lashed out on Debbie Rise (her closet ally), and she felt people would like her because she was oyibo???

     Let’s not forget that Gift and  TTT are light skinned and they were evicted as well. So it had nothing to do with the colour of her skin but had everything to do with the content of her character.
