In the video the entertainer is seen praying for Laycon and tagged the disqualified housemate Erica, “omo igbo”.

Although the video is an old video many Nigerians now seem to have taken offence with her statement, as they recently took to Twitter to call her out.

A Twitter user @AfamDeluxo accused the singer of turning the reality show to a tribal event.

He wrote,

“One of the people that turned this year’s #Bbnaija into a tribal event is @TeniEntertainer. She was praying for Laycon and referred to Erica as “Omo Igbo”. Imagine if it was an Igbo artist that referred Laycon as “Onye ofe mmanụ” 😊😊😊😊”.

@Zuriks1010wrote, “Let’s call a spade a spade, Omo Ibo is derogatory, separative, isolating. We can’t pretend it’s all nice when the context of use is always in such times. ‘Aboki’ is a nice word but we all know the context we use it in. Same as onye ofe mmanu”

Another Twitter user, Obi Ngozi stated that it’s tribalism to call Erica “omo igbo”

He wrote, “In this bbn case, it’s tribalism to call Erica omo igbo, they came to bbn as Nigerian.”

@its_wendyyyy urged people to call an individual by the name and not their tribe, adding that “omo igbo” is derogatory.

In her words,

“Omo igbo is derogatory, you’re not igbo so you obviously wouldn’t know that, regardless of what it means, it was always used in a derogatory manner.call people by their names”.
However, several other Nigerians supported the singer, claiming there’s nothing wrong with Erica being mentioned as “omo Igbo”.

Dr Omoh wrote,

“I won’t even lie, Eastern Nigerians have the most derogatory name for other tribes but they cry wolf the most. You complain about ”omo Igbo” which literally means an Igbo child but in the east, they call Hausa people the same name they call cows. ”Nama” which even means meat”.

@drip_jules tweeed, “Everyday in 9ja, we call each other names like; e.g, omo igbo, yoruba boy, aboki, even any girl named kafayat is automatically an Alhaja. So because Teni said “omo igbo” now una wan rush am because na celeb. Go and fight iya biliki calling you omo igbo in your street! #BBNaijia”.

Kim Kardashian set to officially divorce Kanye West

American media personality and socialite, Kim Kardashian, is reportedly considering divorcing her rapper husband, Kanye West after six years of marriage.

According to Page Six, a source close to the couple claimed that Kanye’s emotional disorder and his anti-abortion stance have taken a toll on their marriage.

According to the source, Kim has the entire divorce planned out, but she’s waiting for him to get through his latest challenge.
In her words,

“Kim has the whole divorce planned out, but she’s waiting for him to get through his latest episode”.

Meanwhile, for sometime now West has been extremely vocal about about being pro-life, telling a rally crowd that he and Kardashian, 39, nearly aborted their oldest child, daughter North West.
He said

“I almost killed my daughter…No more Plan B, Plan A.”

Kim Kardashian came out to defend her husband and opened about his mental state.

Again in September, Kanye revisited the topic of abortion with Nick Cannon and said his greatest accomplishment was, “still being sensitive enough to cry at the thought of aborting my daughter.”

He sparked another concern last week when he took to Twitter to mention his daughter in a post about being murdered.

“Northy i am going to war and putting my life on the line and if i am murdered don’t ever let white media tell you i wasnt a good man. When people threaten to take you out of my life just know i love you,” he tweeted.

However, this will not be the first time the couple’s divorce claims would be making headlines.

In July, the reality TV star, reunited along with her husband, Kanye West, after flying right down to Wyoming for marriage crisis talks with the embattled rapper over his recent behavior on social media.

The celebrity couple were spotted together in a vehicle, having an intense conversation after leaving a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant in Wyoming.

At one point, the reality TV star broke down in tears as she talked with her husband for the first time in weeks following his political campaign rally and Twitter meltdown, where he disclosed how he encouraged her to abort their first child and revealed how he had been aiming to divorce her over a meeting with rapper, Meek Mill at a hotel for prison reform.

Kanye has since publicly apologized to Kim for ‘going public‘ with their ‘private matter.‘ A source told folks that “as soon as Kim got to the ranch, she and Kanye came out together in his car.”

Kanye West pees on his Grammy,calls out Universal and Sony Labels

 

Kanye West has shared shocking footage of himself urinating on a Grammy Award as he ‘goes into battle’ against labels Universal and Sony to try and retrieve the rights to his own music.

The rapper, 43, posted the vision to his Twitter feed on Wednesday afternoon, which showed one amongst his 21 Grammys placed inside a rest room bowl.
‘Trust me… I WON’T STOP,’ West captioned the clip, which remarked his current bid to achieve ownership of his masters – otherwise referred to as the copyright to his original songs.

BET Awards Full list of 2020 winners

On Monday, West started attacking the structure of the music industry, declaring that musicians actually had little to no power because record labels owned all of their work.

He took aim at his labels Universal and Sony and vowed not to release any new music until he was free of his contracts with them.

West also shared the screenshots of a private contract he signed with Universal back in 2011, just minutes after he tweeted: ‘I feel so humbled and blessed that God has put me in a strong enough position to do this … Everyone keep praying.. It’s working… i am on my knees this morning.’

He then seemed to address black artists directly, and claimed that there needed to be an overhaul in the business.

‘We’ve gotten comfortable with not having what we deserve … they [record labels] allow us to have a touch money from touring, get some gold chains, some alcohol, some girls and fake numbers that feed our egos … but we don’t own our masters,’ he wrote.

He further accused the media of ‘trying to kill’ black , including Michael Jackson.

He also riffed on the Black Lives Matter movement, by tweeting: ‘BLACK MASTERS MATTER’.

Kanye West also referenced his wife, Kim Kardashian, by joking that she was working as his lawyer throughout the process.

The reality star last year revealed that she was starting a four-year law apprenticeship under the supervision of lawyers Erin Haney and Jessica Jackson.
