The most controversial incident in the ongoing Big Brother Naija reality TV show took place Thursday, January 26.
ThinTallTony, the most gregarious and outspoken of the 12 housemates, did the unexpected by stripping naked to campaign for likes.
His stunt came after Biggie, the voice of Big Brother, had urged the housemates to campaign for likes ahead of the first nomination show of the competition.
During the nomination show, a housemate (or more) may be chosen for eviction from the Big Brother house.
While several housemates campaigned passionately with speeches and personal stories, Tony did the audacious by taking off his clothes to the last item, and said, “this is all I have left.”
He said Big Brother Naija was his last hope, and urged his fellow housemates to help him stay in the house for as long as possible.
Although he completely went naked, viewers were not shown his full nude display.
Following his campaign effort, many Nigerians trooped to Twitter to register their opinions (mostly displeasure) on the incident.
Going nude in big brother is no big deal. But going nude as a campaign is stupid. #BBNaija

The last housemate after 78 days will win the ultimate prize of N25m and an automobile.
Big Brother Naija had already generated controversy among Nigerians for being shot in South Africa.
Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, on Tuesday directed the National Broadcasting Commission to investigate why the Big Brother Naija house is in South Africa.
