#BBNaija: Nigerians blast fans of Erica for raising over ₦5 million for her after “misbehaving on Tv”

Some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to blast fans of disqualified BBNaija housemate, Erica, for setting up a GoFundMe account for her.

Erica Ngozi Nlewedim, a housemate (contestant) in the Big Brother Naija Season 5, was disqualified from the reality show after breaking some of the house rules.



Some minutes after her disqualification, Erica’s fans, known as Elites, started a fundraising campaign for her on a popular platform, GoFundMe, and in lesser than 3 hours after the launch of the campaign, more than $9,000 has been raised.

The organisers were targeting $100,000 to support the disqualified reality show contestant, Erica’s dream.



A description underneath the campaign page reads: “For Erica Nlewedim, the star of BBNaija season 5, Lockdown edition whose journey on the show came to an emotional end – To realize some of her hopes and aspirations.”



A fan who donated $20 said “Because I love ❤️ her. Please accept my token.”; while another who donated $25 commented; “Erica deserves better!!!!!”

However, different reactions have continued to trail her disqualification and the launched Go FundMe campaign. Typical of Nigerians, there were serious comments, and then, the savage and sarcastic ones too.

O U T S I D E R ❁@_phuddy: “Erica’s GoFundMe is about to hit $10k in less than 5 hours, but people with health issues, people who need help with tuition opened gofundme account and didn’t receive up to a thousand since they’ve opened it…….. This life no actually balance sha……misplaced priorities.”

erica stan @Uyiosa94547841: “She made a mistake, she’s gonna learn and grow, she’s obviously going to go through depression from all the hate so that’s just our little way of saying we love her, and that the money we wanted to use to vote for her goes to her instead.”



SAUCE @SAUCE__1: “Girls that are Crying or feeling Bad for, Erica are the same type of Girls that Breaks a guy’s heart who really love them, May they be disqualified like Erica in anything they are doing, in Jesus Name. Guys can I hear a louder Amen.”

Theonefolio @theonefolio: “Erica’s fan: babe my team is losing. Laycon: but I’m winning.”

Dekkz @Deke_O: “I’m really sad about Erica being disqualified. She had the potential to win, she could have deffs been top 3. It’s such a shame!”

Ntombi @Ntomb_nhlapo: “What kind of strike is that one, Ceec cut the dress they didn’t warn her or give her a strike, mercy broke the phone they didn’t give her a strike too even a warning but Erica they disqualified her with useless things.”

Beautiful Abia State native, Erica was disqualified during Sunday Live eviction show, for breaking several house rules governing the game.

As a punishment for being disqualified, all cash prizes and gifts she won during her 49 days in the house would be revoked.



This, however, didn’t go well with some Nigerians who took to social media to lambaste Erica’ fans over what most of them termed a “misplaced priority”.

For some of the critics, they criticized those contributing for Erica whereas they have poor people in their respective families.

Some also hinged their outrage on the fact that there are several GoFundMe accounts set up to generate school fees for poor Nigerians but couldn’t meet their targets for weeks whereas Erica’s fundraiser has generated over $3,000 dollars in few hours.

Below are some comments made by some Nigerians on Twitter, as gathered by DailyPost:



@Bowale “There are Gofundme for people’s tuition fees on Twitter that are yet to cross $2k after weeks. Well Erica’s own is almost at $3k after 2 hours. Nigerians know what they want and it’s why the country would remain stagnant.”

@Kofoworola “ In Nigeria we channel our energy to the wrong things Look at that gofundme for example.”

@BiolaKazeem “ Erica is going to get a $100k in gofundme despite doing all the things people here swore they hate and stand against.Many Gofundme for education and treatment can’t even hit $1000 despite aggressive campaigns.Not knocking anyone just a point about how we are a fascinating specie. “

@Posshh_ “ I bet some of the people donating money to Erica’s gofundme have relatives who are genuinely in need of help.”

@Ogbenidipo “ You say the government & private sector companies don’t take education and personal development serious. But not a single soul has created a gofundme for me or any careers & personal development coach on this app, with all the inspiring & empowering content we share. Is it fair?

@Sonjoe_kutuh “ They opened a GoFundMe account for Erica and you’re donating money, but your family and friends and neighbors are poor. You’re mad!



Skin_herball “ So you carry your hard earned money, inside this pandemic, with petrol @ 160, with all the troubles in this country donate to Erica’s GoFundMe?

@RealDreylo “ $6,000 has been raised for Erica GofundMe in less than an hour. Someone on IG has given her Benz already. If I no go Big Brother next year call me Dangothe.”

@Bervelyn “ The gofundme account has been set. Drop all your pain and worries into it. 100m or nothing or even more. Bombard her. All the haters complaining better mind your business. Star girl shall rise and smile again.This is just the beginning. ”

@Preshuhs “If you’re contributing to Erica’s GoFundMe and the people around you are starving, you are a disgrace.”

@Havillah007 “ All of u doing gofundme have families that are currently down financially and emotionally but will not notice or give attention..I cannot understand the basis for this.”.
