Big Brother Naija star, Tolani Baj has got people talking after she revealed the reason for her small fan base compared to her female colleagues of the ‘Lockdown’ season.
The US-raised reality TV star attributed the cause of her low fanbase as the tone and colour of her skin.
She made this known after a fan stated that despite her strong character and ambition, her fan base is low because of colourism.
Tolani Baj in her response stated that Nigerians are colourist.
The fan wrote, “”Some things don’t add up. Tolani baj is such a top babe. She has a strong character, she’s ambitious, her work ethic is insane. Her self assurance& confidence is top notch. She’s absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Y doesn’t sh have 1 of the biggest fanbases in bbn ths yr? Damn Colorism is real”
While Tolani replied, “Aww, thank you beautiful, Nigerians are colourists but y’all not ready for this conversation. P.s: I won’t go back & forth with anyone to defend my statement. I will block you expeditiously.”
She then gave details in another tweet, ”Brown skin women in the industry deserve their accolades too. Stop overlooking them and choosing them last.”
Tolani Baj, a media personality, participated in the season 5 edition of the Big Brother Naija show dubbed ‘Lockdown’.
Her fanbase is relatively low when compared to other female housemates of the edition which include Nengi, Dorathy, Erica, Lucy and so on.
