Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the Big Brother Naija show host, has cleared the air on a trending video that started the narrative that one of the season 7 housemates, Groovy, has bad breath.
A viral video showing Ebuka holding his nose as Groovy screamed at his face during his unveiling as one of the new season’s housemates sparked outrage online, with many social media users suggesting that Ebuka was wading off bad breath from Groovy.
Netizens suggested that Groovy’s bad breath caused Ebuka to clutch his nose as he couldn’t bear it.
A Twitter user with the handle @drpenking also shared the video with the caption, “Brush your teeth twice a day. Visit a dentist. No one deserves what Groovy did to Ebuka this night.”
In response, Ebuka said in a tweet on Sunday night that he was just scratching his nose and was not trying to wash away bad breath as people had assumed.
