Since the premiere of Big Brother
Naija season 3, the unveiling of the
contestants as well as the fake eviction
less 24 hours into the game, social
media has been greeted with every
minute news pertaining to the show.
There is barely any opportunity for
pertinent news to make it into the web
space and if you are a novice and are
wondering how long you have to bear
this for, then let me humbly announce
to you that you have about another 3
months to either “enjoy” the show or
keep ranting on the internet about
tired you are of seeing unsolicited
news. The choice is totally yours.
Anyway, amidst the unveiling of the
Big Brother Naija Double Wahala
housemates, one question that has
been on the lips of many Nigerians is;
How can Tobi Bakre claim to be 23yrs
Well i don’t know how old he is
because i definitely do not have assess
to his birth certificate nor was i
present at the time of his birth but i
can tell you categorically that
something doesn’t add up.
I know this is Nigeria where public
figures lie through their teeth about
their ages. It is not news that
entertainers such as Korede Bello,
Burna boy, and of recent, Kiss Daniel,
have all been accused of faking their
ages but what makes theirs different
is the fact that they were all
assumptions with barely any proof to
back such allegations.
However, that is not the case here as
our darling Tobi just may be giving us
some clues that counter his “age”
Before you think i’m delusional, check
these reasons below;
Firstly, We have heard it a million
times that Tobi is a graduate of the
University of Lagos, Akoka. Right?
Cool! But here is what they did NOT
Tobi was a student of the University of
Lagos for 4 years. \(2008 – 2012). Let’s
do the math. If the “23yrs old” claim
is anything to go by, that means the
premiere HoH of #BBNaija2018 was
born in the year 1995, right? Good!
Going by this, we can safely conclude
that Tobi was admitted into the
University of Lagos at the age of 13
\(2008 minus 1995), as opposed to the
minimum age of 16yrs as stipulated
by JAMB. Okay!!!
He won an award for “Most
Handsome” student in his final year.
And here he is obeying the clarion call
at the age of 18.
