It will be recalled that after the eviction show last night, families of Big Brother Naija finalists competing for the cash price sent messages directly to the housemates to encourage them for making it to the final stage of the reality show, except for Cee-C whose family sent a representative.
It was their Dad’s P.A, Dana, who sent her a message on behalf of the family.
This caused criticism online, as viewers slammed Cee-C’s family for not making her message special, as many accused the family of distancing themselves from her.
Following the bashing from viewers, Cee-C’s sister Vanessa has issued a statement on why they didn’t send a message directly to her.
'I know some of us would have preferred I did the video. And trust me, I really wanted to. I needed to tell her a whole lot, especially the love from you ALL.
'Well, when we were Contacted they Requested a selfie video from Anybody apart From the family. It was really short notice. '
'Dana is a family Friend. She was actually part of my bridal train. And We all Know Cee-C has a bad sight. Don't let no one distract you with non-issue. We totally and fully behind Cee-C. '
'That said let's keep voting we will meet In lagos Next Week?' she wrote on Cee-C's Instagram page.
