“Women have to learn to stand for each other…If not a lot of my fellow men will never allow you all go far” – Uti Nwachukwu reacts to Reuben Abati’s #BBNaija Article



Former Presidential spokesperson Reuben Abati penned quite an ‘analytical’ article about the just concluded Big Brother Naija reality show today (click here if you missed it) and as a result, his views have been a source of conversation on social media.

A lot of people have described his views as harsh and in a series of tweets, former Big Brother Africa winner Uti Nwachukwu shared his thoughts about the article.

According to Uti, the article was an attack on women and he encouraged women to stand for each other. He also encouraged women to “teach African chauvinistic misogynistic men a harsh lesson”.

See his tweets below.

      I agree with Uti totally. I SMH at my fellow women who open their mouths and critice Tboss, failing to see that they are just like Tboss in their relationships and marriages. Funmi Iyanda was right as well; majority of these women are so green with jeolusy, causing it to override their thinking. Have you stopped to ask your self will a typical egocentric Nigerian male allow women to win or lead in anything? No! Come BB Naija next year or in the course of ten years, the average man will never want to see a woman win in anything even in politics. Karen and Dilish won the BB because voting wasn’t left for Nigerians alone but Africa as a whole. If it was left solely to Nigerians, these women never would have won. Based on logistic, the typical egocentric Nigerian man will never see a woman rule over him. So ponder on that all you spiteful and nonsupporting women. #girlsupportgirl

      So true..i remember one day i boarded a keke napep and stepped out for a man who was about to board because i didn’t want to be squashed in between two men. This man went ballistic, shouting, calling me names, he said “how can an ordinary woman expect me to sit in the middle”. I was stunned to say the least…

      Uti should keep quiet. Like begets like. Both parties are depraved. It is not a worthy cause for women to fight for women to conduct themselves inappropriately inviting uncouth men to shame womanhood. You all are hypocrites.

    Reuben should be wishing he didn’t write this trash. I can’t see why a grown man should describe a woman’s anatomy and features in a derogatory manner…On social media!!!Like I said in the earlier post, the man is bored.

      i was really shocked to see that… was like why is he all over the girl’s issue like that? did he desire her so much that it was the only way he could express it?

    This Reuben’s Article is cringe inducing.. I’m sorry to say.. Got mad respesk for this man but this Article is loaded with Prejudice and I’m not in support..

    Uncle Uti, my friend wee yu keekwayet there?? Tboss will soon be back so you can straff nd let us hear word..

    I’m tired of this your “to the rescue” at the mention of her name.. If this post was about anybody else, you won’t be here..

    Allow females to rest, if they decide to ignore Abati’s post they did not fail anybody.. Everyone should read the post nd decide what they think about it, don’t instigate anybody..

    Bbnaija has ended, still I will not hear word.. Arghh!!

      Look at you berating Reuben Abati, and look at the nonsense you wrote about Uti. So to you he is defending Tboss because he wants to sleep with her. You are really senseless. And you are part of our women problem.

    We must always overreact because thats the stuff we are made of as Nigerians, Abati didnt rise to become the Editor of the reputable Guardian Newspaper and Presidential Adviser, he is a first class graduate from the University of Calabar, his daughter graduated with distinction in Law from the University of Bristol, he is not a frovolous person, even though i dont like Abati, i concur with him on this one. I never watched Big Brother, unless i stumbled on it somewhere, it was the height of shame, debasement of womanhood and promotion of sex and nudity, it seems thats what we glorify in Nigeria, Nobody is looking at the economic loss in terms of taxes, revenue and employment, what did we gain really? here we are castigating a man for saying the truth, 24 million people cant vote out bad leaders but can vote for a Big Brother winner, what a shame.
    Uti, abeg comot your boxers nack pant and bra, overhyped product of silly big brother show.

      Who cares what his daughter graduated with? Is thay the crux of the matter? That same daughter will one day be torn to shreds by a misogynistic Nigerian moron.

    • Banks

      April 12, 2017 at 9:05 am

      You dont need to care about what his daughter graduated with, siddon there, tomorrow she will be appointed Minister of the Federal Republic, she will initiate policies that will affect the whole country while you are fighting for women who debase womanhood, get groped and engage in oral sex on global TV, so whats the difference between the Big Brother Housemates and porn stars? Cant the organisers put rules in place that wont allow the glorification of nudity and sex? what happened to morals?

      All his degrees and he has two wives and is known for dating very light skinned side chics. It is possible that he harboured an obsession for Tboss but he has a feeling (maybe from experience) that he was not wealthy or good enough for her

    Why won’t Uncle Reuben write that rubbish article when Team Bisola and BOSSNATION fans (most of them women) are insulting each other on social media. Check out the noise from both teams insulting the other’s star whereas they say little or nothing about the married man who denied his family TTT and the almost rapist Kemen. See the comments on Funmi Iyanda’s post. The hate from women towards a fellow female.

    Isn’t it sad that Uti, a MAN, is the only celeb who has actually spoke up about this article? Where are our so-called outspoken female celebs?

    Yet see comment from Munachimso above, telling Uti to keep quiet. I bet you this commenter is a woman.
    I have said it before and i will say it again. WOMEN ARE THEIR WORST ENEMIES. That is why the average nigerian married woman would blame the other woman when her husband is a cheat.

    The moment you all decide to stand up for each other, people like Reuben would think multiple times before they write rubbish article about women’s anatomy. As if they are better off with their pot belly.

    Uti is so right on this . My eyes popped when I read that article. It was rubbish from the beginning to the end. Interesting how we hate what / who we don’t understand

    Reueben Abati has always been a glorified hack. Every single article he writes is full of hollow, mundane, hypocritical and recycled nonsense. He has no talent and he only has a name because all you f%%#ing idiots who are always enticed by mediocrity.
    Go on and check Reuben’s post history on BN and look at the comments under his articles. You will see a plethora of brain dead idiots hyping him and praising him for being a great, talented writer just because he puts together some two-faced garbage that appeals to them. F#%%ing pathetic.
    When this idiot Abati was tweeting s%%t the other day about feminism and women empowerment, so many blinded people were praising the liar. I just find it hard to believe that after all you Nigerians have been through, you still get carried away by blatant hypocrisy. This is a man who looted government funds and defended atrocities and you all believed he gives a s%&# about women and human rights because he used to write some two-bit articles for The Guardian and is an acclaimed “journalist” or whatever by Nigerian standards, hahahaha! You guys.
    FYI, this is what Abati Tweeted in response to the Pretty Mike scandal:

    “A major setback for women, girl-child empowerment in Nigeria. Shame on the human puppies and their master”

    The same person who tweeted this has now gone around to slutshame and bodyshame women in another disgraceful article. Expected really. All you women here should keep on celebrating and hyping talentless, selfish, remorseless and clueless idiots like Abati, this is what you will get in return.

      I can’t get over him framing TBoss as the Jezebel that seduced that rapist rather than him acknowledging that she was a victim of sexual assault. Penetrating an unconscious/ drunk person is rape. God, I fear for young Nigerian girls. This person was once part of the ruling class. Now, tell me how someone like this will support anti-rape laws.

    I’ve come to realize something, the Facebook audience is very very very different from the Twitter/Instagram Audience. I read comments of Reuben’s article across each platforms, and 90% of comments from facebook were lauding and praising his article, calling Tboss names and all. while Comments from Twitter/Instagram and Bella naija was quite the opposite. Is it that Facebook people are still behind ni, cos i don’t understand, lol

      Exactly, Uti is being just as uncouth as Reuben. Look at the degrading chauvinistic language both men are using. Uti actually sounds violent, like he will beat up any woman who dares disagree.

    • tunmi

      April 13, 2017 at 6:25 pm

      THANK YOU!!!!!!

      Someone said it on another post. Leave women be. Uti and his likes carry the tag of women and we are supposed to follow like sheep. Not all women are the same. Slut-shaming is foul across all the genders. But enough with shouting women as if we are all the same. The same way women will condemn TBoss and slutshame is the same way women will stand against, and/or speak against it and/or do nothing. Stop seeing women as 1 thing. They exist as individuals.

      Anon wrote it on Toke’s post:
      “Men can insult other men all day long and even cause coups and whole world wars because they don’t like each other, but the moment one woman doesn’t like another woman it’s “women forever bringing women down” Kindly stop propagating these harmful and false ideologies about women”

    Thank u, Uti. Abati is a worthless sexist, chauvinistic, misogynistic piece of trash. what a useless old man. Can u imagine saying TBoss was a Jezebel, Delilah, sex object, etc all because of a damn TV show. That fool needs to be slapped. TBoss has the right to go naked if she wants to. It’s none of his damned business. You’ve seen better breasts than her fluffy south looking mango breasts?? this is someone’s father oo. I am sure u masturbate to the pictures of her breasts. foolish hypocrite. This man is the typical representation of the African man. Disgusting, brainless, chauvinistic n misogynistic. ??

    First of all am female before you all come for me.
    Now, Reuben’s article is very nice and honestly i love the way he portrayed his view, Uti abeg park well. I wonder why people have very short memory, why will people choose to blame bisola, TTT kissed her, attempted romance and even encouraged her. Who no go like that amidst lovely looking girls and a guy single you out for that, how will she know she is been played. (All you judges, ‘God dey’)
    Now lets move to TBoss, I think Reuben has a crush on her, the way he described her breast ‘Oga’ go and release your frustration else where but he is right, Nigeria is a judgemental society, you need to have a stone heart to pull the kind of stunts she pooled (Boobs and naked massage for TV… I salute in Falz voice)
    Finally, about how much money big brother and co made from this, shame on our government. We allow everything in this country… its just like a circle. Please where are the intelligent ones, Because we need better rulers, people that look into the future rather than people that think of their current belly situation.
    The part that cracked me up though, ‘Efe’s poverty’. Actually true.. The guy has zero talent, talks too much and has nothing to offer. Yet he is voted. Nigerians will call that Favour. Lets not lie, People voted for him because they can relate to his current condition (Loads of people have the poverty virus).

    I love your article Reuben (Truth in raw form-Majority’s mind), despite your obsession towards TBOSS she wont date you ohh.

    Reuben and Uti are birds of a feather. Uti is as uncouth as the person he is calling out.
