Kwayi Tukura, brother of Beauty, the recently disqualified Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemate, has come under criticism for saying the reality star “gave the most interesting content on the show.”
On Sunday, Beauty was disqualified from the show after receiving her second strike for a physical altercation.
Shortly after her disqualification, Kwayi described her actions on the show as a “perfect script and most interesting content”.
In a now-viral video, he also implored BBNaija viewers to stop criticising her.
Kwayi’s comment did not go unnoticed by social media users, with some describing it as “silly”.
In the wake of the backlash, Kwayi put out a statement via his Instagram page wherein he apologised for his initial statement.

He also disclosed that he was just trying to protect Beauty from the negativity following her disqualification.
“Basically, I appreciate the support given her by people who don’t even know her. My point was that she’s human, and of course, she will work on managing her emotions better,” he wrote.
“I also definitely wouldn’t encourage her to display her emotions in that manner. The video was not an indication of supporting violence in the Big Brother house.
“I deeply regret if that message came across wrongly. That video is also not the viewpoint of @beautytukura on the matter, nor is it that of her management team.
“It was mine, and I hope everyone offended by it will realise my true intent for making it. It was just a brother trying to stand up for his baby sister.”
Here are what Nigerians had to say about his previous comment:
So Beauty’s brother made a video and said that Beauty was the most interesting housemate in the show, that all she did was just content and somebody replied that she should give the content in their family hauz 😭
