BBNaija: ‘I’m ashamed’ — Seyi apologises over ‘misogynistic’ comment

Seyi Awolowo, the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) All-Stars housemate, has apologised for his recent “misogynistic” comment on the show.


Awolowo has been in the public eye since he opened up about his intentions to bankroll his son and their friends to have sexual intercourse with pre-arranged girls.

The remark provoked widespread criticism from Nigerians and even the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA).

Addressing the controversy, Awolowo’s management earlier said the reality star’s remark “does not define his overall personality”.

But during his recent diary session, Seyi expressed regret over the comment after Biggie, the instructive voice on BBNaija, informed him about the backlash it had triggered.

“Big Brother, I honestly did not remember that. Yes. It is very very misogynistic. I am so sorry for saying those kinds of comments. It is a very wrong thing to say. And I am just regretting it now. I cannot even remember I said those things. I am sure I said things even worse. I cannot remember the conversation in totality,” he said.

On Wednesday, Awolowo also tendered his apology to housemates in the lounge.

“I think in between Sunday morning; I said some things to some couple of housemates at the time. I literally just remembered it yesterday, and it is something I am really not proud of. I am ashamed of it. I know probably when you guys get outside and see that clip, you guys, too, will be disgusted,” he said.

“So I just want to apologise to every woman in the house. When you go outside, you will understand. I said some very nasty things and brashly things to my person. Not to my person but things I am not supposed to have said. And I really and sincerely apologise. These are words I am not supposed to use.”

He also apologised to his wife, mother, and management.

The BBNaija All-Stars reality TV show began on July 23 and is expected to end on October 1.

The winner of this season will take home a cash prize of N120 million, the highest since the inception of the show.
