BBN Venita’s Ex-husband Debunks Her Controversial Take On Tiv Men Despite Apology In Viral Video

Following Venita’s controversial remarks on social media about the Tiv tribe, a video of her ex-husband debunking the claims has gone viral. Venita caused quite a stir during her time in the BBN All-Stars house when she made comments about Tiv men giving their wives to visitors for pleasure. However, Terna Tarka, a member of the Tiv tribe, issued a press statement refuting her claims. Despite Venita’s public apology and reconsideration of her comments, Terna Tarka still felt the need to respond. In light of the situation, Venita shared that her two daughters are of Tiv descent and expressed remorse for her imprudent words. She also clarified that her remarks were misconstrued. Netizens have also dropped their two cents on the matter, with some pointing out a political angle to his act while others accused him of chasing clout.

Her ex-husband’s statement read, in part:

“My name is Terna Mbakorkaa Tarka; I am a Nigerian who firmly believes in unity and respect for humanity regardless of race, tribe, gender or religion. I am here today to address a very controversial narrative that has been making rounds all over social media and the news. This is regarding a statement that when Tiv men host their guests, they give their wives out to these guests for pleasure purposes. Speaking as a proud Tiv man who was born into one of the prominent families to come out of the middle belt region and the first grandson of Joseph Zawan Tarka, I would like to categorically state that in all my years of hosting my guests, even the thought of such a derogatory practice has never crossed my mind. Therefore, such a thing never occurred in my marriage. Coming from a prominent Tiv family, it is easy to be the target of the backlash regarding this matter, but on the other hand, I’m also well placed to speak on behalf of all Tiv people when I state clearly that such a practice has never occurred or existed within the Tiv culture or any other Nigerian culture for that matter.”
