Yousef, one of the 2021 Big Brother Naija housemates has been wholly criticized over a “Paedophile” statement he made while introducing himself to the house.
Yousef was among the first housemates introduced by Ebuka Obi-Uchendu during the BBNaija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ launch on Saturday. Yousef introduced himself as a teacher and then Ebuka asked Yousef about his students and if they’ll be surprised to see him on the show.
Yousef responded, saying that their reactions will be under probability but the majority have a crush on him and thank God he’s not a pedophile.
“Most of my students have a crush on me. Thank goodness I’m not a pedophile”, Yousef responded.
His comment has spanked outrage from fans of the show, as many said his extra statement wasn’t necessary. Others said his statement will go a long way in affecting his chances at getting far on the show.
Here’s how Netizens reacted:
@Super_Spotter ” Yousef was actually thinking he’s the cutest male in the House going on to spew trash about his students crushing on him .. 4 guys have been introduced so far and he’s the least attractive amongst the four. Dude’s got a mountain of image redemption to climb.”
@La_Ghiverr “YOUSEF: Most of my students have a crush on me.Thank God I’m not a pedophile.Distasteful joke.”
@Cheramaa “Very careless comment.”

@Deborah “I disliked him the moment he said that Yousef should come and be going.How can you talk about kids crushing on you, even acknowledging that fact is annoying.”
@SaintAnosike “You guys should not push any narrative against anybody. This guys just entered.You can see that what Yousef said was just stage pressure. Drop that useless agenda please let’s not clash very early. “
@Onyinyechi “That’s how this Yousef spoilt his game before entering. Olodo.”
