Reactions have trailed the viral video of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State watching the grand finale of the Big Brother naija reality show on Sunday night.
In the 51 seconds video, which was posted on the Governor’s Facebook page, he was seen anticipating who would go home with the captivating N85 million prize before the host Ebuka announced Olamilekan Agbeleshe, fondly known as Laycon as the winner of the season 5 reality show.
Gov. Bello in the video, before the host announced the winner, mentioned Kunle instead of Laycon who defeated Dorathy, Nengi, Vee and Neo to covet the grand price in the ‘lockdown edition of the show.
The Governor in the video said “it is expected any way. Both of them are winners”.
Reacting to the viral video, some Nigerians took a swipe on Gov. Bello for allegedly promoting immorality, instead of focusing on issues that would better the lives of Kogi people.
Others on the other hand praised the governor for being real, compared to his other counterparts who came out to condemn the reality show but watched it in the secret.
