BBNaija’s Venita Apologises To Tiv Tribe Over Derogatory Remark

Venita Akpofure, the BBNaija All Stars housemate, has apologised to the Tiv tribe over her derogatory comment about their culture.

While on the show, Akpofure claimed that Tiv men offer their wives to guests.

“In the Tiv tribe, they give their wives to their guests,” she said.

The comment sparked controversy on social media and inspired a petition to have her removed from BBNaija.

On Sunday, Akpofure, Soma, and Angel were evicted for receiving the fewest votes.

In a recent interview, Hero Daniels stated that her remark towards the Tiv people was misinterpreted.

She added that her daughters are Tiv and that she would never insult their clan.

She also acknowledged the “carelessness” of her statement and apologized to those who were hurt.

“The statement I made about Tiv people got twisted a bit. My daughters are Tiv. There is no way I will be trying to make any malicious or slanderous comment towards their people,” she said.

“Actually, in my season we did a whole play around the Tor Tiv coronation which I participated in and was super excited about.

“So, you know, sometimes you will say something, maybe it is a little bit careless. And I think it got misconstrued. And for those offended by it, I am  regretful about that.”
