Nigerians have dragged celebrated singer, Teniola Apata popularly known as Teni, after she was seen in a video referring to disqualified Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemate, Erica as ‘Omo Igbo’.
Teni started trending on Twitter on Wednesday 23rd September, after she shared a video of her praying for Laycon in a sarcastic manner on social media.
However, some Nigerians were not pleased by the video as she started with referring to Erica as ‘Omo Igbo’, which they found as a tribalistic statement.
As they took to the micro blogging platform to drag Teni, some other Nigerians tried defending her as some stated that there’s nothing wrong with referring to an Igbo girl as Omo Igbo.
Nevertheless, the critics debated with her defenders, stating that it is not the phrase that is wrong but the context in which it was used.
