The Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA) has condemned comments made by Seyi Awolowo in the ongoing BBNaija All Stars show.
Awolowo is participating in the BBNaija’s All-Star edition which commenced on July 23.
Alongside 19 former housemates of the show, the reality TV star is to compete for a cash prize of N120 million.
During one of the show’s sessions, Awolowo had a sex-related chit-chat with his colleagues, Whitemoney and Soma.
He said he is looking to bankroll his sons and their friends to have sexual intercourse with pre-arranged girls.
The housemate said he created a special bank account to service the sexual fantasies of his son and their friends.
This comment has generated a heated backlash on social media, causing the DSVA to wade into the matter.
DSVA, in a tweet, said Seyi Awolowo’s statement perpetuates a culture of sexual abuse.
“We strongly condemn the comments made by Seyi Awolowo in the disturbing video that has surfaced. Such remarks perpetuate harmful attitudes and contribute to a culture of violence and abuse,” the agency said.
“The bystanders’ passive response in the video is also deeply concerning because it only enables such behaviour to persist. It is important for us all to actively speak up in circumstances such as this.
“We remain committed to addressing issues of domestic and sexual violence.”
