Tayo Faniran, an actor and former Big Brother Africa housemate, attracted mockery after he lamented being labelled a former Big Brother Naija housemate.

The Instagram story triggered a range of reactions on social media. Some supported Faniran’s distinction between BBA and BBNaija, acknowledging each show’s unique aspects. Others criticized his statements as divisive and undermining the accomplishments of BBNaija participants.
