Big Brother Naija housemate, ThinTallTony was evicted at Sunday night’s live show. He got the lowest percentage of the total votes cast and you do not need a soothsayer to know that the major grouse against TTT was the lies and deceit that characterised his stay and so-called game plan while in the house.
35 year old Anthony Offiong married with two kids in real life went into the Big Brother House with no intentions of revealing his marital status to fellow housemates. No qualms! He called it his game plan and that’s alright. But he went the extra mile by getting intimate with Bisola, making known his romantic intentions towards TBoss and claiming his entire family had died. At the time he told fake housemate, Jon in a conversation that he had lost his family to death, the matter had gotten to the tipping point. TTT had proven himself a desperate, pathetic liar and viewers would not spare him.
For crying out loud, TTT’s wife was passionately campaigning for him on her Instagram page, the photos of his kids were all over social media but this man was still waist deep in his lies. The conversation on Twitter spun from how a man could lie about his marriage to how a man would call his own supposedly beloved family dead just because some N25million was involved. A cash prize he was not certain to win.
But his wife, Mrs Audi Offiong, as her Instagram bio reads, was undeterred by the noise. She kept up with the campaign. Maybe the rest of us should have let go early enough, maybe we should let the family deal with their problems by themselves, maybe we should have all taken it for a game because that exactly is what it is, maybe we should have spared TTT, maybe we should have judged him by his tenacity, creative abilities and sportsmanship. But our sentiments clouded our judgement, most of us just couldn’t stand watching him live and breathe in lies, so we had him kicked out.
After his eviction, the memes followed. The majority assumption was that his wife would be waiting with a divorce letter in one hand and a pestle in the other. We assumed there would be war. But we’ve just received the shock of our lives. The love runs deep and we’ve just confirmed that with this Instagram post Mrs Offiong as just shared. Haters will say she’s hurt but just showing off fake joy on social media, but is it your joy or is it your marriage? At this point, it’s okay for us to let TTT and his wife settle back into their marriage, sort their issues (we know they exist) and enjoy what the BBN platform has got to offer.
