• Following Nengi’s unfiltered face at the BBNaija Lockdown Reunion episode 2, former Pepper Dem reality television star Venita has reminded her colleagues that there’s no filter on TVs.
• She also advised that fans shouldn’t be deceived by so many pictures posted on social media because majority of them were completely edited and filtered.
An indirect jibe has been thrown at Big Brother Naija season 5 Lockdown reality television star and ex-housemate Rebecca Hampson aka Nengi by her senior colleague and Pepper Dem ex-contestant Venita Akpofure.
Although Venita didn’t mention Nengi’s name, her post was reportedly traced back to Nengi’s appearance during the Day 2, episode 2 of BBNaija Lockdown Reunion show which aired on Friday, June 18.
Venita advised her colleagues who make use of excessive photo filter to edit their pictures before posting to be aware that there’s no facetune or filter on TV.
She also advised the fans never to be deceived by what they see on social media because there’s level to the social media packaging, adding that everyone should choose their level of consumable deceptiveness wisely.
“No snapchat filter or facetune video on TV lol… none at all. Here is the reality of it. Don’t let social media fool you. There’s levels to this packaging… choose your level consumable deceptiveness wisely,” she tweeted.
