Tokunbo Idowu, ex-Big Brother Naija housemate popularly known as TBoss, says she did not feel slighted by Rueben Abati’s article criticising her decision to display nudity on the reality show.
TBoss, a self-acclaimed nudist, on more than one occasion displayed her breasts in the dressing area of the Big Brother Naija house.
Abati, a popular columnist and former presidential spokesperson, had penned an article chastising her and ridiculing the size of her breasts.
But in an interview with The Nation, TBoss said she found article amusing, especially where he likened her breasts size to a mango.
“I do not feel I’m an arrogant person. I’m sorry he has that opinion of me. I read the comments,” she said.
“My people actually were afraid that I would get emotional and sad about it. But I’m not. I was actually quite amused when I read his comments about the ‘mango’ part. It was actually quite comical.”
The ex-reality show star also defended her decision to walk around half-clad, noting that it’s an act she’s become accustomed to.
She said: “See, the Big Brother house is a place where you showcase yourself. You’re free to be T-Boss. Whoever T-Boss is, you show the world who T-Boss is.”
“And in my own life, in my normal day-to-day life, I don’t like to wear clothes when I’m walking around in my house. I like to be free, here (pointing from her waist downwards), covered here (pointing upwards from her waist), what’s the point? Or I’ll just wear one small blouse. The Big Brother house was like my house at a point.”
TBoss added: “I was just being myself and walking around without clothes… I didn’t go to the kitchen, you know, because, then, that is like really seeking attention or go out into the garden or to the arena. No, I didn’t do that.”
Tokunbo Idowu emerged the second runner-up of the reality show.
