Twitter Users Defend Teni After Being Tagged Tribalistic For Calling Erica “Omo Igbo”
Popular Nigerian singer Teni has recently come under fire on Twitter and described as tribalistic over a video she made concerning BBNaija’s Laycon and Erica’s love triangle.
Recall last month, Erica had turned down Laycon’s love advances stating she is only mentally attracted to him. To this end, Teni took to Instagram to pray for Laycon who she believes was under a spell and described Erica as an “Omo Igbo”; meaning person of Igbo descent.
Teni was recently called out for using the “Omo Igbo” term on Erica, which her fans believe is demeaning and disrespectful. However, fans of the singer on Twitter have spoken out in her defense, stating that mischief-makers are only looking for ways to cause a controversy.

Because Teni called Erica omo igbo, elites abi wetin dem call themselves don start dey vex. Please call me omo Yoruba because i am one.
People with misplaced priorities.

If Yoruba say Omo Igbo they actually mean ”dubious” and if they say Aboki , they actually mean ”Moron ”.

In your opinion, was Teni wrong to call Erica an “Omo Igbo” or do Twitter users indeed take things too seriously.
