BB Naija 5: Africa Magic apologizes for calling Kiddwaya a flirt

Written by Chukwuma Obiasia

Africa Magic, a subsidiary of the organizers of the Big Brother Naija, BBNaija reality TV show has apologised after they tagged housemate Kiddwaya a flirt.

Earlier today, viewers of the show expressed displeasure over the post updated on Twitter, which was a response to Kiddwaya’s attitude towards Erica.

The post describes the situation between three housemates, Erica, Laycon and Kiddwaya, especially from the previous night after it appeared like Kidd kissed Erica despite her drunken state, this Laycon found so disrespectful and didn’t hide his thought on the situation.

Part of the Africa Magic post, which BBNaija viewers found fault in, reads,

“Take a look at the man Erica chose to give her heart to, Kiddwaya. He has been a serial flirt and though Erica was one of his targets, she wasn’t his first choice like she was for Laycon.”

Following the Africa Magic post, the hashtag #JusticeForKiddwaya has started trending as Nigerians express their dissatisfaction with the post.

A viewer of the show wrote on Twitter:

“This clearly shows that the sponsors already have a winner.”

“It’s a pity that @africamagictv would stoop so low to sell a narrative that was completely different from what we watched. It is a shame that you would write with such unprofessional conduct. Kiddwaya is not an exploiter,” wrote another fan of the show.

Reacting to the backlash, the organizers of the show took to their social media page to tender an apology to the viewers who felt offended by the statement.
