Toyin Lawani, celebrity fashion designer, and other celebrities of the previous Big Brother Naija ‘Shine ya eyes’ housemates, Boma Akpore and Tega Dominic have jumped to the defense of current housemate, Hermes Iyele.
A troll had earlier taken swipe at the reality star’s mental health and that of his mother.
Gistlover reported that Hermes had been spotted behaving in a disturbing manner.
In the viral video, Hermes who undoubtedly is on the list of favourite Level Up housemates, was captured alone in a corner of the house speaking out loud to no-one in particular with his eyes closed.
Some concerned social media users had expressed worry over his stability and mental health.
Reacting some users alleged that he was displaying a ‘withdrawal symptom’ while another said his instability was as a result of too much Indian hemp in his system, however few others accused him of using it as a strategy to win the game.
Since the viral video, many have tagged him “mentally unstable” over his weird behaviours.
Using this against him, a troll dragged his fan page for campaigning for him.
The troll described his mother as a mad woman and the reality star as a mentally deranged human.
“Since you’ve decided to be unfortunate. It’s obvious that your mother is a MAD woman. Your fave Mother is a MAD woman. Your fave is also a mentally depressed human. You are also a product of MADNESS. Hers my evidence”.
Standing up for him, Toyin took to Instagram to slam the troll.
She noted how many don’t open up on their mental health battle for fear of being mocked.
“Somebody sat down and wrote this. Well I’m not shocked, I read all sorts from empty souls on the street of social media, This is why most people don’t talk about their mental health or rape things like that. Y’all always get bullied for it, But guess what, No matter how much you hate. @hermesiyele is destined to be great. Nobody can stop Greatness. @theunstoppabletoyinlawani King of all Queens said so, coolest tribe is here to stay. Love from this side, I hope his mom gets all the right help she needs with them, But for now Tribe lest focus and get our baby there”.
Taking to comment section, Boma Akpore, Tega and Leo joined her in fighting for him.
Tega Dominic: I love the responds… exactly why he is special
Boma Akpore: Idiots all over the internet, they need to make Data more expensive. The fact that it’s cheap, has breaded lots of nuisance smh
Leo Silva: This is so wrong. Jesus Christ
Recall also that, Toyin Lawani had given reasons she would want Hermes Iyele to emerge winner of Big Brother Naija Season 7.
For Lawani, Hermes deserves the whooping N100m grand prize so he could take proper care of his mother who is reportedly in a Psychiatric home.
Taking to her verified Instagram page, the mother of three wrote: “Hahaha my Guy @hermesiyele is not playing o. see how he’s walking as if he’s on the runway , just to go and pick ball. He puts drama into anything he does. I love him , instagram deleted my post of him , they don’t want me to show his bumbum to the world. why Hermes wa kere ni , Inside that whole house , he’s the only one my eyes are seeing. I wish everyone luck though but he’s my guy for the year and he should be yours too , wish he would win and get the right help for his mom. I just love how he loves her , wish my mom was still here too to shower her with so much love but then again.”
