The organizers of Big Brother Naija, BBNaija, has reacted after a housemate in the new edition of the reality show, Eloka Nwamu better known as Eloswag, wore a politically suggestive hoodie in the house.
It would be recalled that on Saturday, July 22, the seventh edition of Big Brother Naija began and 20 housemates were introduced into the house.
Barely a week into the show, the name ‘Eloswag’ started trending on Twitter and it was discovered that he was on the trend table because he wore a hoodie with the inscription ‘Be Obedient and Useful’.
Some netizens asserted that he was indirectly campaigning for the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, and his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed.
Some supporters of the ‘Obedient movement’ also pledged to support and vote for him whenever he’s up for eviction. Meanwhile, Eloswag is also the first Head of House.
Well, following the uproar that trailed the outfit, TheCableNG contacted an insider within the reality show’s production and he disclosed that Eloswag has been warned against wearing the hoodie again.
According to the source, the show does not permit political or religious discussions among housemates in the house.
“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 was quoted as saying.
