Former Big Brother Africa housemate Beverly Osu has just been featured in a “probably-going-to-be-controversial” catholic-themed cover shoot for Taylor Live Magazine.
In the exposè piece titled “Confession,” Beverly talks about post BBA depression and shares a couple of secrets. She is seen dressed in a nun’s habit, as different shots portray her smoking a cigarette while in the religious garment, and another clutching a lingerie piece, and yet another where she has a rosary wrapped around her fingers.
Of course, Nigerians on social media are not here for it. As friends and well wishers complimented Beverly on her Instagram page where she shared one of the photos, a stampede of livid commenters charged forth to express their disapproval, stating that the habit clad Beverly is blasphemous and desperate for publicity.
While some mildly remarked that the act is not godly and could have been left out of the shoot, many others are throwing vocabulary based thunderbolts are Beverly…..pointing out that the entire direction of the issue is sacrilegious and disrespectful to Catholicism.

steph.diamonds@phadekemmie in American movies you’ll also see ppl wearing hijabs and acting ‘like witches’ but have you seen a Nigerian Muslim disrespecting the hijab all because of a photoshoot? …. It’s wrong fam
me_jahzzNobody Holy 🙏🏿❤
chisaraagohaThis is ART🙌🙌🙌
chinnyokorochaThis is just a uniform you fools, did you see her with the holy bible in any of the photos? she’s not making mockery of nothing. Blasphemy is when you sin against the holy one. None of the props in this photo is in the scriptures.
So what’s your take on the photoshoot?
