Some viewers of Big Brother Naija 2018 have called for housemate Cee-c to be punished for destroying her Saturday party outfit.
This is coming after Cee-c, who expressed disgust at the ‘Efik inspired’ traditional outfit she received from one of the sponsors, Payporte, damaged it by using scissors to cut it short.
If we recall that the sponsor, which felt disrespected, expressed disappointment at Cee-c’s action.
But while explaining why she tore the outfit, Cee-c told Khloe that she is Igbo not Akwa Ibom.
Her explanation has angered viewers who felt she has no respect for other people’s culture, while some lauded her actions and described the dress as unbefitting for her personality and a party.
Below are some . harvested from Twitter:
@Carr_gr tweeted: “There’s a difference between ALTERATION and TRUNCATING. Doing alteration for the dress to fit is cool but freaking truncating it is downright disrespectful and changing it all together in a situation where the dress is representing something, culture.”
@Petradokantanga wrote: “This is how ungrateful Cee-C can be. She can’t even get to model the dress for tonight before cutting the dress.”
@Ezeportable tweeted: “If you are not from Cross River or Akwaibom, you will not understand the beauty of the onyo nyo dress.”
@deechy1 wrote: “She was meant to represent a Calabar culture . It’s a shame .”
Elijah_greener : the purpose of the dress is to showcase our culture and this selfish cee-c destroyed it, somebody’s creation. It better she didnt wear it than destroying it. Later biggie will be dashing out unnecessary strike and warning people up and down.
@ntosiba tweeted: “Don’t like the dress, it’s big, how can u party in that dress serious who chose this for her though.”

@Jefe_says: Cee-c’s stupid excuse in defence of cutting her traditional dress is “I’m Igbo” That’s even an insult to Igbos’…we appreciate cultures and we don’t segregate based on tribe or religion/
@b_creamgirl: Payporte gave Ceec a dress and she called it nonsense then used a scissor to cut the dress… That serves the organizers of #BBNaija and Payporte right. Next time you will do a mental check during auditioning.
(@Cuttieice: Payporte is an official sponsor of the program. As a brand, they showcase their products via the Saturday party. It is a total disrespect for a housemate to not only speak ill of the brand but also destroy it’s product. We await Biggie’s verdict.
@AfroVII: @PayPorte It’s unreasonable for you to expect the housemates to not make honest . on the outfits. The dress given to Cee C is particularly poorly executed. The feedback should help the company improve its stock.
