Ex-Lockdown Housemate and BBNaija 2020 reality television star, Tolanibaj has stated the main reason she has one of the least fanbases among her co-reality stars.
On Twitter platform, Wednesday, February 10, one of Tolanibaj’s supporters tweeted emphasizing that even with TBaj’s strong character, ambitiousness, work ethic, self-assurance and confidence, she’s so disregarded by so many people.
The fan identified as Pamziness simply put that colourism is part of the things and why Tolanibaj doesn’t have one of the biggest fanbases.
“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 hv 1 of th biggest fanbases in bbn ths yr? Damn Colorism is real💯,” the young lady wrote.
Tolanibaj, who sighted the tweet took to a reply commending the lady for sharing such a powerful fact.
The reality star concurrently added that Nigerians are colorists and that’s exactly what’s happening each time the fans choose who they would support in the reality TV show.
“Aww, thank you beautiful❤️ Nigerians are colorists 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 stated.
Tolani noted in another tweet that brown skin women in the industry deserve their accolades too and people should stop overlooking them and choosing them last.
“Brown skin women in the industry deserve their accolades too. Stop overlooking them and choosing them last,” she added.
However, a fan responded to the reality star’s last tweet by letting her know that reason she seems to lack huge fanbase is because she didn’t bring much to the Lockdown show.
The commenter gave an instance using Tolanibaj’s senior colleagues such as Bisola, Cee C, Dorathy, who are also brown skin ladies and have huge fanbases because they made impact during their time.
“Tbaj mo love e paa, but you didn’t bring much to the show. Bisola, Ceec, Dora, Vee are dark skinned but they got the buzz. And so many others in the entertainment industry,” the fan told Tolanibaj.
Another fan opined, “Nothing like colorism in bbn. Ceec isn’t lightskinned & she has a good fanbase. For Tbj I would say 2 things affected her, the first 2 weeks, she was very quiet & in her shell & that is when fanbases r built. Secondly, throughout d show, she sat on the fence & Cldnt pick a side.”
