The Big Brother Naija All Stars housemate Seyi has expressed regret for making the statement that he is teaching his son to run trains on women’s daughters. When Seyi and Whitemoney spoke following the Saturday night party, the media had reported that Seyi had said he had opened a “miscellaneous account for his son to enable him to have sex with people’s daughters.” Seyi clarified his statement, explaining that it was a misguided attempt at humour and not meant to be taken literally. He acknowledged the insensitivity of his words and expressed sincere remorse for any offence caused.
Social media users are divided over this, with many demanding that the comment be more carefully considered while others support that nothing wrong was meant. The Lagos State Government also stated that effect with a press statement. On Tuesday, though, Seyi claimed in his diary session that he had made the remarks out of anger. He acknowledged the misogynistic nature of the statement and expressed regret. He said,
“I was in my emotion and my feeling. I was angry at everybody. I was not in a good place to be honest.
“I was really angry, it is one of my character flaws. I don’t think when I’m angry. “I regret that action and I’m sorry about this. I’m sorry about saying such comments, they are indeed very misogynistic.
“That is a very dark and unfair thing to say about anybody’s child. I’m really sorry about that big brother. “I’m just regretting that I said those things. Not to mention that I am married to a beautiful woman, my mother and the women who have been there for me. “I know I have a darkness inside and I tried my best to tame it inside,”
Still, Biggie told him to tell the housemate how sorry he was. Seyi promised to be more aware of his words in the future and their effect on other people. He acknowledged that his words had the power to hurt and vowed to choose them more carefully in the future. Seyi expressed genuine remorse and assured Biggie that he would make a conscious effort to be more considerate of others’ feelings.
