Popular Nollywood actress, Maryam Charles, has slammed a BBNaija 2020 housemate, Nengi, for the method she is employing to get popular on the reality TV show.
Maryam on her new Instagram page on Sunday, July 26, said that the way the housemate goes around almost half-naked is a thing that really displeases her.
She added that trying hard to play the Mercy card because she won the last edition of the show is not a smart move, saying that the former winner is the not kind of person to use as a role model.
“For Christ sake, is she telling us that it’s only when you show your nud’ity that you will win the show? Is it only when you twerk that fans will appreciate your ‘talents?’
“…I don’t blame Nengi, she’s probably not smart enough to know that Mercy is not the kind of person to use as your role model. There are strong, influential and well-respected women out there that can lead you in the right path,” she said.
The actress also used the opportunity to appeal to young girls, telling them not to look towards people like Mercy and Nengi as role models.

I've been watching this season of BBNaija and I won't lie, I've been disgusted by what Nengi has been doing. Am I the only one wondering whether this girl has clothes at all? Because it seems anytime the camera is on her, she is either half naked or wearing something showing off her bum. For Christ sake, is she telling us that it's only when you show your nudity that you will win the show? Is it only when you twerk that fans will appreciate your 'talents?' It makes no sense! I dont blame her though. She learnt it from another ex housemate Mercy. Remember how Mercy too used bottom power to win the show when there were more talented people there? This rubbish has to stop. I don't blame Nengi, she's probably not smart enough to know that Mercy is not the kind of person to use as your role model. There are strong, influential and well respected women out there that can lead you in the right path. To the young girls out there as well, nudity is not a sure way to success. Sure, perverts will literally eat you up with their eyes, but that's it. You will not gain anything. Instead, it's your virtue that will reduce. Do not look at ladies like Nengi and Mercy as your role models, like I said earlier, there are better women out there. #bbnaija #bigbrothernaija #bbnaijalockdown #mercy #nengi #nengibbnaija
