Love Island Drama 2020
Winter love Island was rocked by racism claims since the first episode. Many viewers took offence to Siannise calling Nas ‘Alladin’. Viewers thought it may be offensive due to Nas South Asian heritage. Nas took the comment well, responding: “Don’t even do that to me! I’m actually gassed now.”
Nas has become a popular cast member since the start of the show. He is this seasons underdog after failing to make romantic connections in the villa. That changed when Demi entered the villa, and they coupled up. Nas popularity is declining since he entered casa amour and chose to ditch Demi for new girl Eva. Many viewers have expressed their disappointment in his decision and refuse to support him. Could this mark then end of Nas stint in the villa? Or will he redeem himself and possibly win? With only a few weeks left, we will have to wait and see.
