A former housemate of Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality TV show Terseer Kiddwaya has come under fire over a post on social media about the 2023 general election.
The controversy started after Kiddwaya, via his Twitter handle, congratulated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for what he described as a fantastic election.
The post was accompanied by a video where Kiddwaya advised Nigerians to focus on themselves and their businesses since the election is over.
“Guys, now that elections is over. All that political stuff is over. It’s now time to focus on yourselves. Focus on your business. Focus on your hustle. Focus on your mental mind your physical body.
“Now a lot of you may cry in my DM sections, believe me, I really don’t give a f**K. But understand the advice I am giving you.”
However, the post triggered a backlash from many social media users who were offended by Kiddwaya’s statement.
“Anytime this guy feel say he don dey lose relevance, he go just drop one nonsense out of touch tweet… then people go dey reminded say he dey exist.”
“Someone who has never known a day of hard and honest work in his life is saying this with so much conviction because a few years ago you all said he was “humble” for going on a reality show with locals. Lol, you think he went for work experience?? BFFR.”
“I can bet this guy has never made 10M naira on his own. It’s okay for your father to be loaded and using it as a leverage in life, but do not come and talk about “focus on yourself and hustle” when all u needed to do was to be lucky to be born into the family.”
