Celebrity fashion designer Yomi Makun’s reaction to an Instagram post by Big Brother Naija season four first runner up, Mike Edwards has sparked criticisms from Nigerians on social media.
Mike had taken to his IG page to share a photo where he posed with his British athlete wife, Peirresha Shakes-Drayton.

Yomi Casual then took to his Instagram story and wrote:
“If your wife can’t come, you are not going?
“Uncle hungry never beat you! So my wife must follow me to all my private appointments with top personalities hun?” he wrote.
“Abeg talk another thing,” Yomi added.
His reaction has evoked a series of bashing from social media users, especially fans of Mike.
In what looks like a mob attack, fans of the BBNaija star took to Instagram and Twitter to lambaste Yomi over his comment and warned him not to intrude into Mike’s family affair.
Nene Victory tweeted:
The difference between a man that values his wife and a man that doesn’t value his wife even online,Yomi casual is actually insulting his wife by saying she can’t meet top personalities.”
“Yomi casual, shading a couple that doesn’t even know of his existence , Mike and perri moving to Nigeria they should know this now, majority of the population are bitter even when they have no acquaintance with you. Imagine yomi shading mike. Tragic.
“Yomi casual has been hating from a distance. He thinks mike is like his local champion group of trio nollywood Ngbeke boys. Wey e GO just beg mike make them be friends.”
Those of you saying Mike is faking these things, it’s really you and Yomi Casual‘s business. Mike was known for constantly celebrating people while on the show, to the extent people quarrelled with him. If Mike can hype strangers, how much more his soul mate?
See some of the reactions:
Imagine tryna make Perri look like she doesn’t have a life ! A gold medalist and world champion ! Yomi Casual doesn’t even know who his mates are

So y’all surprised Yomi Casual said what he Said? I mean that’s the mentality of the average married men in Nigeria. They hardly take their wives out or even carry them along.
Nonsense mentality… pic.twitter.com/nQ62KTlBHN

Yomi Casual not seeing his wife as worthy enough to stand with him in the presence of “top personalities” goes a long way to show the deep rooted patriarchy and misogyny embedded in African men’s DNA. Women are baby factories and as thus, confined to the oza room…and kitchen.

Yomi Casual is stupid to think that everything is about money and hunger.
Don’t you know that Mike support system is his wife.
You think it is a man like you that doesn’t value your wife.
You should grow up and see your wife as part of you
