“I’m disheartened by the Governor of Ogun state making the winner of #bbnaija an ambassador of the state, rewarding him further with cash and a house.
No thanks to you sir for further entrenching the sad narrative that we are a nation that rewards trivialities & mediocrity. #sad”
Wale Adenuga went ahead to clear the air, when Laycon’s fan trolled him for referring to their president as a dog.
“Post Script: I’ve had so many comments on this and that’s to be expected. People have taken exception to the term ‘dogs’. This is an idiomatic expression and NOT the labelling of a person. Apologies to anyone misconstruing that figure of speech and definitely label anyone a dog”
