“Who Is Chad Boswick?” – Nigerians Ask BBNaija’s Hermes

BBNaija's Hermes wears Chad Bosewick

The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever West Africa premiere in Lagos, Nigeria was a night of glitz and glamour. Nigerian celebrities played dress up just the way they love to do, but one particular costume stood out above the others for a not-so-good reason. BBNaija’s Hermes was the wearer of this particular costume which looked impressive from the front view, but, on turning back, eagle-eyed fans quickly spotted a misspelling error.

RIP Chad Boswick? “WTF is Chad Boswick???” Nigerians have been asking since. Neither Hermes nor his creative team has come out to offer any explanations about what many have described as an “insensitive act”. 

Here are some of the most popular tweets on the matter:
