One of Big Brother Naija’s housewives in 2019, Thelma, has been attacked in the reality series by her accent.
Among other guests, Thelma introduced another’ American accent’ into the house.
However, the situation of Thelma seems to be the worst as hers does not seem to be real, which has produced internet responses from Nigerians.
Recall that in the continuing fourth season of the Big Brother Naija reality show, some Nigerians defined the decision of partners as “more international than Nigerian.”
Respondents said it was puzzling how Mike, London police officer, Khafi and Ike, who said this was his first in Lagos, made the cut, while in February thousands of Nigerians flooded hearing centres.
Here are Nigerian remarks collected from Twitter:
@DonJazzy “Thelma has a distinct haqccent for every question.” @Dfitnessbeaut1 “The fake accent of Thelma just dropped to igbocent. That was innocent!
@Salakoko “Thelma Please, your English teacher died before he was able to teach you Queens English. But I’m going to speak with him for today.”
@Christo7548 “Thelma is half Ghanian, half Ivorian, but she grew up in imo. No wonder she’s as confused in English as she’s from.”
@Zaddy Nomso “Thelma must have the Canadian-Aba accent as the first person. Like Drake who eats Okpa every morning.”
@Akanni “Very dumb Thelma, she sounds like Omo Ibadan attempting to shape Yankee to shape accent.”
@T Chisom “I swear I’m tired of the subject of Thelma. I believe I would just keep her in the house to see the kind of accents she would give us every day. I haven’t got over” I’ve done it deliberately “
@Thepamilerin” Thelma makes me laugh, it’s great her English overseas.
“Thelma! @Faymorce! Her name’s first! Fluctuator accent! Queens English Breaker! Low Waje budget! Queen of Haqccent! English constructor! Fine English lady! Slayer from British English! First Nigerian to talk on a pidgin!
@Zuribabel” Speaking the Nnewi accent with the United States? # BBNaija
