We were expecting something like this to happen, but we assumed it would be Xiaomi that would fire the first salvo. itel Mobile has stepped up to the plate and taken a shot at OPPO Mobile over the F11 Pro that Big Brother Naija housemate, Mercy, smashed last night after the Saturday night party.
In a scathing tweet, itel pooh-poohed the build quality of the OPPO F11 Pro, saying:
“Just one smash, Everything shattered!! can’t be an itel phone💪
The funds used to sponsor this show could have been used to produce quality devices for Nigerians.”

Last night, in a fit of rage, Mercy had collected the OPPO F11 Pro from fellow housemate, Gedoni, who had been recording a video of her and Dianne, and smashed it to the floor.
All we are thinking now is, How did Xiaomi allow itel to draw first blood? With the reputation of the Redmi Note 7 for not breaking, a shade from Xiaomi would have been lit. Oh, and how is OPPO going to respond to this?
