A sister to the Big Brother Naija reality TV show housemate, Tboss, has revealed why many chose to dislike her sister, even though she’d always garnered enough vote to escape eviction.
Wendy revealed that the hatred towards her sister from Nigerians is based on her skin colour.
Tboss’ sister noted that growing up for them was really hard because of their light skin complexion and hair texture.
Wendy who disclosed that people saw them as whites instead of being a part of the African community wrote:
“Growing up we faced a lot of challenges but the major challenge we faced was “Acceptance”. Having a different skin color and hair texture made us stand out and we never felt like we truly belonged. Apart from a few good friends we never belonged to any cliques or groups like other people.
Growing up in Nigeria people saw us as white and we never really blended in, so we were relieved to travel to Romania for our university education, just to get there and be called blacks. In Romania we got to find out the true definition of racism.
Some Nigerians might not flow with you cos you don’t have same skin color as them but they won’t resort to violence but in Romania a “few people” could be real extremists. So once again acceptance was a problem cos people look at your skin color and think of you differently.
For TBoss all that has come to an end now, after 11 weeks in the #bigbrothernaija2017 house people have actually begun to see TBoss as a real human, with real feelings and emotions, she gets happy, sad, angry, depressed, heartbroken and excited like every other human being, she plays, she eats, she drinks, she sleeps and has aspirations and goals like everyone else and for the first time the world has accepted her and stood by her side and fought for her. For this we can never stop saying thank you!
