Social media handler for Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Maria, has alleged death threats after Maria nominated housemates for eviction on Monday.
The handler made this known on Tuesday in a statement on Maria’s official Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Recall that Maria, as a Wildcard, was granted the power to nominate housemates for eviction and she chose Whitemoney, Yerins, Jaypaul and Beatrice.
However, the handler alleged that insults and death threats have been sent to Maria’s direct messages after the nomination.
The statement by the handler read, “We have been through a lot with our Fly Girl since she was revealed as Biggie’s wildcard.
“She has been called all sorts of names for delivering on the assignment that finally saved her and made her an official contestant on the show.
“Her exclusive nomination has also put her on the chopping block by lots of viewers, and this has got people cursing, trolling and sending death threats in her comment sections and DMs.
“No one deserves to die or get seriously threatened for going on a reality TV show and making harmless choices.
“It’s hurtful to see these things and it’s more difficult to see her go through these emotions, but the Maria that we know will surely pull through.
