Ogom ‘O.G.’ Chijindu Releases Unedited Hour-Long Colorist Conversation with Kristen Scott Following Latest ‘BBW’ Episode

Ogom “OG” Chijindu released the unedited hour-long “colorist” discussion with “Basketball Wives” co-star Kristen Scott on Feb. 24 to apparently “clear some things up” that the new “BBW” episode didn’t show the previous night. The former athlete claimed in her caption that she wanted her fans to see the type of “forced ignorant conversation” that transpired after waiting two hours for Scott to arrive at the rental property Jackie Christie rented out for herself, Chijindu, and Jennifer Williams as they embarked on a mini-vacation last year.

Scott begins the conversation by saying her intention in meeting Chijindu was to understand why she felt she was singled out by the other “BBW” cast members and try to move on from the situation. The “BBW” star said on mark 3:46, “I didn’t come over here to rehash anything negative between you and I. I did not, there has been so much that has gone on in the world, and in people’s lives in the past year or 10 months. As unfortunate as I think the conversations that you and I have had have not been the best, I have done my best to put that behind me and let that go, and I would like to personally move on with you in a better direction.”

Scott continued by reiterating that she volunteered to have the discussion with her co-star because she felt they were the same complexion and she didn’t experience the same treatment from the group.

“I want to understand and be very fair with you when it comes down to experiences, feelings or whatever you may feel when it comes down to the colorism thing,” Scott said. “I was hoping we can have that conversation. I will tell you what I told the other girls, I said it’s very possible we are not listening and that we missed something. … No one is talking about that stuff, I want to.”

Chijindu refused to engage about the issue, because she says she has done it so often in the past, but she said although the pair may have similar complexions, that’s where the visible similarities stop. She claimed the “colorism” situation is more than just color, it consists of many things, including how people view her more predominant facial features —and constantly taunt her — being that she is an African woman.


She said on mark 6:01: “Yes we are similar in complexion but there are different things that go along with that like facial features, so for me there isn’t anything I need to hash out. I am very transparent and I speak on things when it is present and then I move on. This happened over a year ago. I don’t have to talk about something that is an everyday experience. I don’t have to talk about something that is a lifestyle that we push through as Black women. … I can never explain myself to someone to get them to understand what it is like to be me or experience what I’ve experienced on and off camera, ’cause it happened.”

The “BBW” alum continued by adding that when she addressed the problems to the group during the 2019 reunion, she decided to let the issue go because she felt she handled it the best way possible. Chijindu also told Scott this conversation was overdue and felt it should have transpired as soon as problems began to arise because “a lot of details get lost” when waiting.

During the conversation, when Scott wasn’t fully understanding what the reality star was saying, Chijindu brought up how she’s been called aggressive despite the fact she’s never had a physical altercation with anyone in the show, unlike her co-star Evelyn Lozada, whom she feels hasn’t been called out for her actions since “BBW” began back in 2010.

Jennifer Williams seconded Chijindu’s claims as the discussion began to get a little heated toward the end of the video, saying Lozada has not been held accountable even after physically throwing tables and drinks at other people. She said on mark 45:07, “There are people in this group that have thrown tables. They have thrown drinks, all kinds of things. Nobody gets called aggressive and nobody gets held accountable.”

Chijindu interrupts Williams to mention that Lozada was suing Chijindu for calling her a colorist, simply stating how there is unfair treatment within the group of women, because if the roles were reversed there would’ve been harsher consequences.

As the conversation came to a close, nothing was resolved between the two women.
