All-Stars Champ Ilebaye Responds to Fundraising Allegations

Big Brother Naija ‘All Stars’ champion, Ilebaye Odiniya, has responded to criticism after it appeared she was seeking financial support from fans despite winning the N120 million grand prize.

Ilebaye, a 22-year-old contestant from Kogi State, emerged victorious on Sunday, October 1, surpassing 23 other housemates.

Following her triumph, she took to Twitter to caution her fans against sending money to any unofficial account numbers, except the one she provided.

She tweeted,

“We’ve received information about fans planning to send gifts or contributions. Please refrain from sending money to any account that isn’t officially posted on Ilebaye’s verified accounts. For gifts, please send an email. The only accessible account is the Baye Tribe account (9608176782 – Providus). We won’t be responsible for any misappropriation of funds. Thank you 🙏🏾”

This drew criticism from many viewers of the show, who questioned her decision to seek financial assistance despite her N120 million win.

In response to the backlash, Ilebaye shared a follow-up post clarifying that she wasn’t begging for money and only shared the account details to protect her fans from falling victim to scammers impersonating her.

She tweeted,

“This tweet was solely to avoid people who WANT to gift falling into the hands of scammers.

We didn’t solicit for funds, we only highlighted the account we have access to.

Too many fake account numbers are circulating, and we will not be held accountable for any misappropriation.”
