Eloswag, a Big Brother Naija season 7 housemate, has sparked controversy after wearing a customized hoodie.
He wore a shirt customized with some words that have become popular on Nigerian social media in recent weeks as a result of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.
A phrase that Obi’s supporters assigned to themselves is Obidient, which is a combination of the presidential hopeful’s name and a mantra to obey instructions.
Few weeks ago, he announced Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed as his running mate, so his supporters decided to add another phrase ‘Yusful’. To promote their candidate, they created a slogan which goes thus; Be ObiDient and Yusful.
Incidentally, the inscription on Eloswag’s hoodie reads; ‘Be Obedient and useful.’
Though he did not directly use Be ObiDient and Yusful, but it still raised concerns about a possible rule violation because BBNaija housemates are not allowed to openly campaign or declare support for any politician.
