Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemate, Angel Smith’s social media handler (her dad) has addressed continued criticism of the young lady’s choice of outfits and actions in the house.
The post note comes shortly after Head of House (HOH) Maria made some comments about Angel during her diary session in the house.
Maria had complained to Biggie about Angel flirting with the boys in the house despite knowing that there are female housemates who have expressed interest in them.
According to the HOH, the male housemates will always behave like boys but the onus is on Angel to caution her actions towards them.

However, Biggie was quick to let Maria know that if “boys can be boys, then Angel can be Angel”.
Also speaking in line with Biggie’s final words to Maria, Angel’s handler pointed out how society continues to hold women to ransom without demanding the same accountability from their male counterparts.
The note read in part:
"We live in a patriarchal society where men aren’t held accountable for their actions in the name of “men will be men” who made the rules? Because it’s a sh*tty rule, women aren’t object of blame, a woman shouldn’t be sl*t-shamed while the guy gets away with “you know how boys are”
In a different portion of the post, the handler explained that women shouldn’t have to feel cheap simply because they choose to be liberal with their bodies.
"A woman isn’t easily accessible because she chooses to be liberal with her body. It’s important we hold men accountable for their actions, as we hold women also, isn’t that what equality stands for ?To excuse the grave mistakes of the phrase “boys will be boys” has to stop," the handler wrote.
