Zari, who joined the show in the third episode, rubbed some people the wrong way, among them Annie Idibia.

The two celebrities got into a heated argument over Annie’s marriage with 2Baba, a matter that easily became the agenda of the show.

Annie’s take

Touching on the matter, Annie explained that the show was full of other amazing events that the producers chose to omit therefore portraying her in a rather negative way.  

“I gave them the mother, I gave them the tasking career woman and entrepreneur and finally I gave them the wife. Told my story as genuine as I could. In all honesty, I gave my whole me to it. Sadly none of those scenes made it to the show, took out my work. The main role I play as a mother in my children’s lives and only put out my love in marriage. Regardless all in all I am happy about the opportunity,” she wrote.

Coming to her defense was her husband 2Baba who was quick to tell off critics trolling Annie for her loyalty and commitment.

“No matter what, you cannot take away the fact that this beautiful queen is a ride or die. A true African queen, no film trick with this woman. Realest,” he wrote.
