Tochi was accused of referring to Erica as a ‘gold-digger’ during an interview.

His tweet read;
“My words “Erica is Igbo like me we don’t like to suffer and she is very ambitious, since she set foot inside the house she knew what she wanted was to win I love her driving spirit”
“Never called her a gold digger” and to those that heard wrong I apologise”
The former BBNaija housemate also took down the tweet.
