The organisers of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) , a Nigeria’s reality show have cautioned one of the housemates Eloswag for wearing an ‘Obedient-Yusful themed’ hoodie.
The inscription was said to have been coined from the ‘Obidient and Yusful’ slogan which followers of Obi and Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, his running mate, have been using to drive his campaign on Twitter.
While a segment of users called for Eloswag’s disqualification from the BBNaija show for “bringing politics into the house,” others vowed to vote massively for him.
Speaking on the matter, an insider within the reality show’s production team said that there is a rule that prohibits housemates from engaging in political and religious discussions and expressions.
The source also disclosed that the housemate in question has been cautioned.
“Politicking is prohibited. We encourage the housemates to avoid political or religious discussions and expressions, and the housemate in question has been cautioned,” the source said.
Eloswag is among the 24 housemates competing for the grand prize of N100 million — the highest ever since the inception of BBNaija.
