Chukwuemeka “Frodd” Okoye, an ex-housemate of the Big Brother Naija season 4, has sparked a flurry of reactions on social media over comments he made during an interview concerning Esther, a fellow housemate and love interest.
As part of the media rounds planned for housemates after the show, Frodd, in an interview with Wazobia FM Lagos, on Wednesday, answered some questions bordering around life after the show.
The 2nd runner up of the reality show also entertained some questions sent in from fans during the interview.
But when a particular question was posed to him concerning his plans for Esther since the show was over, the fashion designer disclosed that his immediate plan was to focus on growing his brand.
“Omo the plan wey dey now na Frodd plan, the plan wey concern my life, make I pursue my future first, pursue the brand,” he said in pidgin English.
“Na wetin I stand for, na wetim my fans do for me, make we do that one first, make dem see say their money work, na them I dey work for.”
His comments have since sparked a social media frenzy, especially on Twitter, with reports also swirling that Esther has unfollowed him on Instagram.
Although he took to Twitter to later clarify what he meant during the interview, his explanation did nothing to abate the reactions.
Family, I can never discredit Esther or pretend that we don’t have a unique friendship.
What I meant was, we are currently busy trying to put our different homes together while attending all these interviews.
We are amazing and have been in touch.

While a number of fans registered their support for Frodd; claiming Esther was just using him during their time together in the show, others gave their two cents on why the relationship wouldn’t have lasted in the first place.
“Frodd denied Esther just like that when he was the one forming victim,” said a user.
“Na konji dey worry Frodd before that’s why he was looking at Esther’s side… Baba came out and released his tension and now his head is clear and he wants to focus on himself,” a Twitter user said.
“But who really thought that it will work between them. Frodd who is a cry bby for everything and E changed men in the house like her panty mxm,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:

So if Frodd said he doesn't have love interest for Esther, sld that warrant her unfollowing him on IG?
Can't they remain friends? – And followers.#WednesdayThoughts

Esther didn’t claim Frodd in her interviews. Frodd isn’t claiming her in his interviews either.
People that are upset just want Frodd to remain a mumu for her, especially her fans. #BBNaija

This is why house mates hated Frodd in the house. He’s just corny and selfish. Denying Esther so blatantly. People have been criticizing her for playing coy as regards the Frodd issue since leaving the house. Good thing she did that for it would have been really embarrassing.
— Chase (@ojaygba) October 9, 2019
I was hoping Frodd and Esther will become a thing after the house.
My Onitsha brother said "no love, we are just friends".
Omashola shouted "Oblorblor" 😂

I knew there would be some mild Esther Frodd drama outside the house…
The #bigbrothernaija2019 reunion gonna be lit.
They better have adequate security in place…

Just to clear the air, Esther blocked Frodd. And when you block someone on instagram the person automatically stops following you. So Frodd did not unfollow her by himself o #BBNaija #SubscribeToTachaYoutube

Frodd, that wasn’t nice! I was rooting for you both. Kai! I understand you though. Since Esther left the house and was giving interviews, she didn’t claim him openly. Always giving subtle answers. I wish y’all can work this out. #BBNaija
