Yesterday, TBoss’ sister campaign to get more fans for her Sister, TBoss, may have just backfired.. She shared a story on how her family have struggled between two cultures.
“Growing up we faced a lot of challenges but the major challenge we faced was “Acceptance”. Having a different skin color and hair texture made us stand out and we never felt like we truly belonged. Growing up in Nigeria people saw us as white and we never really blended in, so we were relieved to travel to Romania for our university education, just to get there and be called blacks.”
“In Romania we got to find out the true definition of racism. Some Nigerians might not flow with you cos you don’t have same skin color as them but they won’t resort to violence but in Romania a “few people” could be real extremists. So once again acceptance was a problem cos people look at your skin color and think of you differently,”
TBoss and Her Mum
This of course is coming after TBoss made it to the finals after she got the highest votes at the last eviction show.
Many Nigerians have accused Biggie/the show hosts of favoring her, while others called out trolls and other housemates who have shown their dislike for TBoss.
Recall, Bisola has called TBoss a “White Witch” quite a number of times, and it was also alleged that Efe told TBoss to her face that he doesn’t get along with “White people”. Should we call this racism?
Perhaps, it is why Wendy shared their family story in a bid to win her sister more fans and votes ahead of the final show coming up this Sunday. But many people have accused the family of playing the ‘race card’, insisting that while Nigeria may be divided along ethnic lines, it never oppresses its mixed people population.
