Angel Smith, an ex-BBN roommate, recently took to Twitter to express her frustration with the ongoing tribal battles between the Igbos and Yorubas, a feeling that resonated with many in the wake of Nigeria’s heightened ethnic tensions.
Angel’s outspokenness on such an important societal problem contrasts with her intriguing romantic tale with Soma.
The couple has sparked popular interest and controversy since their time in the Big Brother Naija house. Last October, their relationship took a dramatic turn, characterized by a brief social media frenzy. They unfollowed and then swiftly re-followed each other, confusing their admirers and co-shippers.
Adding another layer to their complex relationship, Angel boldly referred to Soma as her husband in a recent Instagram post.
This move sparked a wave of criticism from some, who went as far as to insult Angel and question her worthiness for Soma. In a heartfelt defence, Soma took a stand for Angel on his social media, clearing the air and standing up against the negative comments directed at her.
This intertwining of personal drama with the broader issue of tribal conflicts in Nigeria highlights the multifaceted nature of the country’s entertainment industry.
Angel’s stance on the tribal issues and her relationship with Soma continue to draw attention and provoke discussions, reflecting Nigerian society’s diverse and vibrant fabric.
