Tiwa then suffered a huge setback when her s3x-tape finally surfaced online. The singer had revealed beforehand that someone was trying to blackmail her with her s3x tape which was mistakenly posted on Snapchat. She vowed never to succumb to such cheat blackmail.
But to her surprise, the blackmailer made good his threat and released the video online. Till date, the s3x tape is still trending.
The s3x video which was immediately deleted on Snapchat after her lover realised the error remained one of the biggest scandals of the year.

Boma also was evicted for the same reason. But upon his eviction, the Hollywood actor apologized to Nigerians for his actions in the house via his Twitter account.
