If you are in a relationship, it is not unusual to give your partner a pet name, such as bae, baby, my love, boo, sweetheart.
But, reality TV star Tochi has expressed distaste for ladies calling a grown man ‘baby’ as a pet name.
For the former BBNaija housemate, a grown man can be called any other pet name but not ‘baby’
“Stop calling grown men ‘baby.’ Any other thing but not ‘baby’,” he wrote, accompanied by an angry emoji.
Tochi’s comment garnered mixed reactions from social media users.
While many said they enjoy being called ‘baby’ by their partners, others said Tochi was not in a position to tell them what names to call their partners.
The ladies said they call baby are not complaining.
