Nigerians are in a rage at the statement made by a housemate of the current BBTitans show. It came like an utter disrespect to Nigerians in general as it seemed like a statement laced with a strong bias against Nigerian men.
The issue of Xenophobia has drawn so much debate and it is so sensitive that people are expected to pick their words and evaluate their actions so as not to appear xenophobic to another person.
The collaboration between SA and Nigerians might have been done with the subtle undertone to quell Xenophobic discussions and foster peace between the two countries. It is expected that housemates living in harmony serve as a stepping stone for the harmonious coexistence of these two nationalities in society.
Khosi while discussing with another housemate, misused her words. While she revealed how she met her Nigerian boyfriend, she explained how scared she was on the day she met him. According to her, the fear was because in SA it is taboo to be with Nigerian men.
This has gotten people wondering, what about Nigeria screams taboo to these people? While she might not have made her statement in hate, it is still one that triggers a negative feeling in the heart of people.
