Cross and Nini, BBNaija season six housemates, engaged each other in a heated arguement on Wednesday over cleaning of the bathroom at the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ house.
The drama began when Cross met Nini cleaning the bathroom at about the same time he wanted to have his bath.
Apparently irked by her action, Cross complained that the cleaning ought to have taken place when all housemates are done using the bathroom, citing instances in previous weeks.
But Nini did not take his submission lightly while also requesting minutes to clean the bathroom.
Cross, however, maintained that Nini was cleaning the bathroom at the wrong time, calling her “stupid” for not maintaining the status quo in the house.
The face-off led to an exchange of derogatory words from the duo as other housemates weighed in to prevent the confrontation from escalating.
Nini, who felt offended by the remarks made by Cross, also hurled insults at him in return.
“You’re the dumbest s**t in this house, we all know it. And he’s telling me I’m stupid, even when I was indulging the idiot,” she said.
“I was begging him for more than how many minutes and he keeps saying this thing I did was wrong. Do you know how many times I have been washing the toilet? Some people don’t even do it when it’s their duty.
“Do you know what it means to be stupid, stupid Cross. Let’s do an IQ test and we will see who’s the dumbest in this house, and it is Cross.”
After the battle of words had rescinded, Cross took to the garden in the presence of Angel to weep as he reflected on the abusive names Nini had called him.
“It is something I have been struggling with since I was a kid. I try as much as possible to cover the fact that I’m dyslexic,” he said.
“I know a lot of people are smarter than me, out of 10 people in a room, pretty much 9 and half are smarter than me.”
