When former Big Brother Africa star, Uti Nwachukwu, begged American superstar, Taraji Henson, popularly known as Cookie of Empire, for help online, Nigerians became furious and wondered what pushed him to do that.
But while speaking with Sunday Scoop, Nwachukwu rubbished claims that he wanted the American to help him, saying the post was nothing serious. He said, “It was a joke; people should not take it seriously. I always make silly comments on Cookie’s Instagram page. People are free to say whatever they want to say. I am just a fan of Cookie. I comment a lot online and I joke with my loved ones and friends.”
