Disqualified Big Brother Naija star, Erica Nlewedim, has responded to Teddy A’s comments criticizing celebrities supporting Hilda Baci’s challenge.
Teddy A had acknowledged Hilda Baci’s achievements and praised the support she received from Nigerians in her attempt to break a world record.
However, he questioned the motives of those who attended the event, accusing them of seeking attention and clout.
He suggested that many of those supporters had never shown similar support to their friends’ businesses or ventures and accused them of riding on Hilda Baci’s fame.
In response to Teddy A’s tweet, Erica taunted him, asserting that people naturally support what provides them with value.
She argued that individuals may choose to attend events like Hilda’s cook-a-thon because they find them entertaining, but they might not extend the same level of support to their friends because they fail to create the value and excitement that people seek.
“People naturally support whatever gives them value. If they drive to watch Hilda cook, it’s because it’s entertaining to them. If they don’t drive to support their friends, Jesus already said a prophet isn’t recognized in his home. Create value and excitement, and people will support!” Erica expressed.
