The Big Brother has won the battle of talkablility. Getting us all to have an opinion – or more – whether we watch the 24-hour reality show or not and whether we care or not too.
To be honest there are just too many issues raised from the show for us to ignore.Questions about culture, about lifestyles, confidence, sexuality, sex, molestation, the importance of reality in the grand scheme of things and
more importantly: what can a struggling Nigerian do around here to get paid 25 million?
No, but seriously, between Kemen, TBoss, Tony, Bisola and then the rest of them, we have enough issues to power several conversations about what it really means to be Nigerian and whether or not all of the “morals” our Nigerian parents instilled in us growing up have any use in 2017. Issues like: how does the choice of one couple to love each other regardless of the openness of their relationship affect a single lady who was not made privy to that their arrangement nor was she asked if she’s like to participate.
Here’s the thing: so many
busy-bodied Nigerians had anticipated Thin Tall Tony getting back home to an angry wife breathing down fire on him for fooling around with Bisola while he was in the house. To their chagrin (we think), Mr Anthony’s wife appears to have no qualms with her hubby.
“Anthony is an amazing Husband and Father…”
Those are actual #MajorKey #Goalsss and whatever other hashtags fit in this situation. Except that that is not the issue.
The issue is that Mr Anthony fooled with Bisola in the house and as far as we know did not let her know he was married. And he did this unapologetically under some misguided premise of what-happens-in-the-house-is-all-good-as-long-as-we-can-call-it-a-game.
It’s fine that his home is intact and we truly are happy about that but he’s still scum for lying to Bisola. At least until Bisola comes out to shame us by saying she knew and does not mind.
So yeah, TTT is still scum and it doesn’t matter one bit that his wife loves him all the same.
