“Nice but why do you have to kiss her lips to lips tho,” asked one user.
“Omo!! Kiss on the lips?? Hope I’m not the only one having this odd mentality that it looks weird?”asked another.
The reaction was not all negative though, as some users defended the mother and son.
“All my eyes saw is family love inseparable. Nothing abstract,” noted one user.
While another wrote: “Those kisses ehn, chai. Thank you mama for visiting.”
This is not the first time the fitness entrepreneur and his mum have melted hearts with their close relationship. Shortly after Cross left the Big Brother Naija house in October 2021, his mum outlined her plans to use his platform to spread the gospel.
“It is funny but it is not funny. Companies are coming, brands are coming for their products. I, myself; I have my own product; the gospel is my own product,” she told him in a video posted to Instagram.
“That is why I said, ‘Cross, as companies are calling you to be their ambassador, Holy Ghost school is calling you, Cross, to be our ambassador to preach the gospel.’
“That is what I want. But Cross, other companies can pay you but we are not going to pay; you will do it for God.
“This is what I was called for and created for and whatever I can do to please and serve God, I will. My calling is preaching the gospel.
“God sent you there for the gospel.
“As companies are using your platform, I will also use it to preach the gospel.
“So what I ask you is that all the time whenever I need you, please give your consent for the gospel that we preach.
“All these your lovers, you know that there are a lot of them, tell them that Jesus needs them. So bring them to the Holy Ghost. We are going to ‘ship’ together.
“That is what I learnt from Big Brother, ‘shipping together’. We are going to ‘ship’ together with all your lovers and fans, in the name of Jesus.”
