Former Presidential Spokesman, Reuben Abati, released an article on April 11th, where he described some of the Big Brother Naija 2017 housemates in some terms deemed inappropriate by Nigerians. He claimed that the show promoted adultery, prostitution, love of money, nudity and sex, and the sponsors turned alcohol and pornography into legitimate sport. His comments on TBoss which sparked backlash was:

"TBoss dominated the space with her Jezebelic antics, even got some of the male participants ousted by entrapping and outsmarting them with her sexual wiles. She projected herself as a sex object, the ultimate manipulator, the champion Delilah of the Big Brother Africa series. She played the role of a female barracuda. But she lost because of her arrogance. TBoss who claimed she didn’t need the money even exposed her breasts on live television more than once. I have seen better breasts TBOSS. I am not too sure those private jet owners will be excited by your fluffy, South-looking, slightly bigger than mangoes breasts. If the same men see bigger assets, I mean, those interesting Ojiakor-like ones that look like papayas, pineapples and watermelons, they will not send private jets, they will deploy submarines and fighter jets!"
Nigerians were not pleased and dragged him on Twitter. (See here). She has now gracefully reacted in an Interview with the Nation. She said;
"I do not feel I’m an arrogant person. I’m sorry he has that opinion of me. I read the comments. My people actually were afraid that I would get emotional and sad about it. But I’m not. I was actually quite amused when I read his comments about the ‘mango’ part. It was actually quite comical."
