Big Brother Naija, BBNaija Season 6 housemate, Yousef has come under attack over his statement.
Yousef was among the first housemates introduced by Ebuka Obi-Uchendu during the BBNaija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ launch on Saturday.
Speaking on stage with Ebuka, Yousef revealed that he is a teacher from Jos.
He, however, goofed after he said Most of his students have a crush on him.
According to him, “most of my students have a crush on me. Thank God I’m not a paedophile.”
This did not go down with Nigerians who criticised him for making such a statement.
According to some, Yousef with that statement may have affected his chance to go far in the reality tv show.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter;
@Alex_Houseof308 “ All my students have a crush on me” is really not the flex Yousef thought it was.”
