Uti Nwachukwu, the media personality, has called out some packaged water companies over the quality of their products.


In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Nwachukwu, who is a former winner of Big Brother Africa (BBAfrica), recounted his ordeal after ingesting bottles of water.

Although he did not mention names, the reality star accused some companies of adding “chemicals” to their water which he claimed caused him internal discomfort.

“Dear bottled water companies, please what have you started adding to your water? If I wanted to projectile poop 6-7 times a day, I’d have bought slimming tea. What’s all this? It can’t be only me! And it’s the biggest brand o! Two of una now! FIX IT make we nor call una name!” he wrote.


“I knew there was a problem when I was popping steady and it was smelling of chemicals! Like sanitiser! Or Alum or something!

“I stopped the first one. Poo ceased. The second one, no issues. I bought a small bottle and it was worse! This one came with ab discomfort, acid reflux and yes watery poo.

“With that same chemical/alum aroma. So now, I can only vouch for 1 brand that’s currently safe to consume. Smh. Who checks the standards of these things we put in our bodies self?! Ehn? Reputable brands like these causing harm! Who even knows the effects on our organs? I’m tired.”


According to Waterlogic, there are no forms of chemicals and preservatives that should be added to bottled water. However, plastic water bottles are made with chemicals such as Bisphenol A (BPA).
