Following her unceremonius departure from the Big Brother House, fans of disqualified BBNaija housemate, Erica, have come under attack for setting up a Gofundme account for the upcoming actress.
It will be recalled that Erica was disqualified on Sunday for gross misconduct that included flouting house rules. As a punishment, the prizes, both in cash and kind, which she won during the stay in the house would be revoked.
However, few hours after her disqualification, Erica’s fans set up a Gofundme account to support her outside the house. The acount, which has a target of $100, 000 had already garnered over $14,000 at the time of this publication.

This development stirred hot reactions from Nigerians, especially on social media. Some Nigerians took to Twitter to criticize those contributing despite the state of Nigeria’s economy and other less privileged persons.
Some of the comments gathered from Twitter are posted below:
Comrade Deji Adeyanju @adeyanjudeji tweeted: “They have opened a Go Fund Me for disqualified Big Brother house mate -Erica, yet they insult those who hold Govt accountable. My generation is acting unaware of all the troubles & suffering in the country. It’s like we want to suffer for 600yrs.”
In a follow-up reaction, early Monday, he posted; “The Go Fund Me they opened for disqualified BBNaija housemate late last night is now close to $15k. LMAO. Which way Nigeria?”
@BiolaKazeem “Erica is going to get a $100k in gofundme despite doing all the things people here swore they hate and stand against. Many Gofundme for education and treatment can’t even hit $1000 despite aggressive campaigns. knocking anyone just a point about how we are a fascinating specie.”
Sirnucy @IamSan10: “Misplaced priority. Bbnaija is always aired every year during the time students are writing WAEC. Little wonder the rate of failures in WAEC when family gathers to watch bbnaija religiously. The future leaders will be worst than any bad leader this nation has survived.”
@Skin_herball “So you carry your hard earned money, inside this pandemic, with petrol @ 160, with all the troubles in this country donate to Erica’s GoFundMe?”

@Havillah007 “ All of u doing gofundme have families that are currently down financially and emotionally but will not notice or give attention..I cannot understand the basis for this.”
@Bowale “There are Gofundme for people’s tuition fees on Twitter that are yet to cross $2k after weeks. Well Erica’s own is almost at $3k after 2 hours. Nigerians know what they want and it’s why the country would remain stagnant.”
@Kofoworola “ In Nigeria we channel our energy to the wrong things Look at that gofundme for example.”

@Ogbenidipo “ You say the government & private sector companies don’t take education and personal development serious. But not a single soul has created a gofundme for me or any careers & personal development coach on this app, with all the inspiring & empowering content we share. Is it fair?”
John Christian Alex @jchristianalex: “It is pathetic. Full-grown men and women wasting their lives gathering around the tv to watch BBNaija. Still waste their money on an evicted housemate as they are called while a poor girl next door has no money to buy a textbook for her education.”
@Posshh_ “ I bet some of the people donating money to Erica’s gofundme have relatives who are genuinely in need of help.”
