Popular Nigerian singer, Teni was spotted praying for Laycon as she prayed against ‘Omo Igbo’s’ in his life
The BBNaija reality show has been known to get Nigerians on social media buzzing as many of them campaign for their favourite housemates.
In the video Teni shared on Twitter, she prayed for the young man. She started off the supplication by saying that ‘Omo Igbo’s’ should leave Laycon alone.
Watch the video below;
A number of Nigerians on social media took that to mean that she was shading Erica and that her comment portrayed her as a tribalist.
This led to a sort of tribal war on Twitter with people from the eastern part of the country saying that they were proud to be ‘Omo Igbos’. Some of them also said that being Igbo does not mean they cannot show love to Laycon.
See some of the reactions below;
Y’all want laycon to tell the housemates that he told erica about his SC genotype...Mehn they will even put two by two together and know why Erica used those words...Erica told him he will die before 50 years and mocked him for not taking his drugs in a week...#BBNaija— Touche?

Nobody will see anything wrong in Teni addressing Erica as "Omo Igbo" but if an Igbo celeb like Genevieve Nnaji addresses Laycon as "Onye ofe mmanụ" in a solidarity video for Erica just like Teni did, there will be outrage everywhere.
