#BBNaija: TBoss Blasts Critics, Says 'Empty Barrels Make The Loudest Noise'


Former Big Brother Naija housemate and second runner-up, Tokunbo Idowu a.k.a TBoss, has lashed out at critics who accuse her of keeping silence since the show ended.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, TBoss wondered why she's expected to reveal all that is going on in her life on social media.

She wrote:-

"Hi Boss Nation, once again, I want to say a massive thank you for your love and support while I was in the house and now that I'm out. I really prefer to show not tell, but maybe it's time I address certain things.

"Since I've been back from the house, the pressure to show some activity has been immense.

"Everyday I get comments that say, why don't you post more, why don't you appear at places more? The question I'd like to ask in return is to what end?

"There is a saying that goes empty barrels make the loudest noise. I have a plan and goals for myself professionally and personally. I'm not posting or screaming about the meetings I'm having or giving progress reports because a lot of these things are confidential.

"I know that most of you wish me the very best, and to those I promise you, that making you proud and repaying your faith in me is my number one priority. I say most because there are still a handful of people who follow me for ulterior motives.

"I'm in competition with NOBODY. The Boss Nation doesn't compete, we lead. The goal is not to have only one claim to fame – I was a Big Brother Naija Housemate. That game ended the minute I got out. This is real life and the stakes are huge.

"In a short time, you'll be able to see and hear about all I've been working on. Please bear with me, but remember this, the game is over and we're playing in the big leagues now. Thank you Boss Nation! I love you."

According to Okowa: “wherever our youths find themselves, they should be focussed in achieving their goals. The youths have latent talents deposited in them. They must find ways to develop them and apply them. If you have a calling, you must not allow that calling to die. Efe, despite your calling, you listened to your parents and went to school which gave you a good foundation.
“It was obvious that there was no controversy about your winning, you avoided the vices, and showed that you are focused. Our youths should find a way to discover their talents, they should stay committed to their dreams and pray to God to achieve it,” the governor said, adding, “there was no issue of sentiments or tribalism, it shows that you are truly a Nigerian.”

Governor Okowa, his deputy, Barrister Kingsley Otuaro and members of the State Executive Council received Efe who was accompanied on the visit by his parents and members of his family.

“I am happy that the Okpe Kingdom has given you that recognition and you are obviously an ambassador of Delta State and Nigeria; getting to the top may not be easy but, it is also difficult to sustain. You have attained that level that a lot of people are looking up to you and it is our prayer and hope that you will rise and keep rising, you have our prayers, be committed,” Governor Okowa advised.
He also urged the BBN winner to be prayerful for God to direct his parts, promising that the state would partner with him on talent discovery of youths.

Efe had earlier told the governor that he was in Government House to show his appreciation to the government and people of Delta State. “I am truly grateful for all you have done.
