Younger sister to #BBNaija finalist has disclosed that her sister Tboss who is among the top 5 housemates in the Big Brother Naija Reality TV Show with the amount of hate channelled at her is being hated by Nigerians because she’s light-skinned.
According to her, growing up was really a hard one for them, because they had a different skin color and hair texture that made them stand out.
Wendy Idowu also disclosed that growing up in Nigeria, people saw them as whites, and with that they never blended in and had to travel down to Romania to complete their studies.
Wendy also hinted that for TBoss to stay up to 11weeks in the house without being evicted, Nigerians are beginning to see her as a real human with real emotions.
Here’s what she 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.
