Seyi Awolowo, the grandson of Obafemi Awolowo has ridiculed fellow contestant, Mercy, after he said nobody in her generation has achieved what his grandfather has achieved.
He said this on Monday during a heated argument between them.
However, his comment during the show has sparked reactions from Nigerians who have taken their turns to lash at the Obafemi Awolowo descendant.
Seyi: my family has achieved what Mercy's family can't.
Mercy don’t worry your grandpa or your family members may not have been known, but coz of you, your family name will be heard and u will surely go far in life.I hate when the privileged look down on other people #BBNaija

Seyi because of you, I am now supporting Mercy. She must win that money.
She must shame you and your entire family.
