Teni had shared a video of herself referring Erica as ‘Omo Igbo’ while praying in a sarcastic manner for another BBNaija housemate, Laycon, to win the reality TV Show.

Some Nigerians from the Igbo tribe were not pleased with the video as they described the phrase ‘Omo Igbo’ as a tribalistic statement.

As they took to Twitter to drag Teni, some other Nigerians tried defending her as some stated that there’s nothing wrong with referring to an Igbo girl as ‘Omo Igbo’.
