BB NAIJA : C’Riverians take popular online publisher to the cleaners. Who Twitter epp?


Efio-Ita Nyok|28 March 2017 A handful of Cross Riverians have taken a backlash at the publisher of a popular online information portal, Mr Hope Obeten, over the latter's comment bordering on the use of Twitter to have secured a win for evicted Big Brother Naija housemate, Mr Bassey Ekpenyong. Cross Riverians vented their displeasure against Obeten via the reactions of one Queensley Offiong Bassey and Senge MengeEnt. Both deferred with Obeten who contended yesterday that Team Bassey campaigners failed to understand campaigning for Bassey only on Facebook for Calabar users without wouldn't suffice. For Obeten, Twitter held the key to the eventual winner of reality TV show. His words, 'Bassey is gone and am not surprise because we thought campaigning for Bassey in Calabar will keep him in the Big Brother House. We ignored social media influencers, believe me or not Big Brother Naija will be won on Twitter. Follow the trend on Twitter and you will atleast know the 3 finalist. The team Bassey campaigners failed to understand the dynamics of social media. 'I only jumped into the campaign few days ago after Mummy Thelma Bello called at midnight, in her words "Hope, What do we do to keep Bassey in the house" I told her how we were getting it all wrong. We know what we did to keep Patrick Shadow in The Voice Nigeria. We failed Bassey but am optimistic, he's a great chap, intelligent and creative, him go blow!' However, Queensley Offiong Bassey posited that Obeten's comments were belated: 'And Hope Obeten who is currently doing the diary of Under30 CEOs couldn't aid this one because he wasn't consulted?ย  Haba! At the end,ย  Bassey isn't coming hone to roost. Untimely advise my friend'. See what Senge MengeEnt said:
'Medicine after death๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ you knew the strategies u didnt apply it, your a social media prof ? You didnt educate the illiterates ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ oshe!!! 'double e, eric anderson and the rest of the teambassey were driving to diff campuses sharing recharge cards to get votes for bassey, Crbc radio & hitfm took it personal to campaign for bassey….winning is not by twitter trends o….patrick went far in voice of nigeria cos from pman we mandated over 2000 people via different whatsapp groups to educate their friends & families on how to vote…some of us even went as far mandating each person to give patrick N2000 worth of votes outside weechat. 'This doesn't mean other people i dont know didnt contribute their quota to see patrick through. Pls don't take this personal, i'm not being sarcastic or too direct but its actually too late trying to scup palm oil when its already spilled.
We did our best….bassey is a HERO!!!' Among the trio of Obeten, Queensley Offiong Bassey and Senge MengeEnt who do think is on course? As for me, Hmmmm… I no fit tok. Lol Efio-Ita Nyok
