Talented Nigerian Music Artist, Teniola Apata “Teni Makanaki” is in trouble with disqualified BBNAIJA Housemate Erica fans on Twitter as she tagged the actress “Omo Igbo”.
The word ‘Omo Igbo’ is mostly used by Yoruba indigenes to called their brothers and sisters from the eastern part of Nigeria. While others enjoy being called the name, there are some who gets pissed hearing the name.
Teni who happens to support fellow music artist and housemate, Laycon who is from the western part of the country has now been dragged on Twitter.
In a, viral video, she (Teni) was seen praying for Laycon and tagged Erica as “Omo Igbo” and that phrase got her fans angry.
She was praying for Laycon and referred to Erica as "Omo Igbo".
Imagine if it was an Igbo artist that referred Laycon as "Onye ofe mmanụ"

Well, “Omo Igbo” is now trending on Twitter, with Yoruba and Igbo users settling the scores on the App. Some on the side of Teni and the rest against her.
If you can’t call this man “Aboki” don’t call any other person Aboki, Omo Igbo, Inyamiri or Onye ofe mmanu. pic.twitter.com/0yQkPlsyYi

I won't even lie, Eastern Nigerians have the most derogatory name for other tribes but they cry wolf the most.
You complain about ”omo Igbo” which literally means an Igbo child but in the east, they call Hausa people the same name they call cows. ”Nama” which even means meat
