After Ilebaye’s impressive victory on Big Brother Naija All Stars, some of her fans have criticized her, accusing her of ingratitude.
Ilebaye faced backlash from her followers for sharing her bank account information online shortly after winning a substantial sum of 120 million Naira. Although the intention was to provide clarity and prevent fans from sending payments to the wrong account, this decision triggered an immediate uproar on social media.
Since her victory, numerous well-wishers and friends have continued to send money to her account. Unfortunately, it seems that certain individuals have taken advantage of this situation by impersonating Ilebaye and falsely claiming ownership of her account details.
Her team had come out to clarify it, expressing to the public that they should refrain from sending money and gifts to any account that is not under Ilebaye’s verified social media handles.
Her team had gone on to share her direct account where direct payment could be made. Her choice to share her bank account details, rather than a comprehensive plan or charitable initiatives, raised eyebrows among fans and followers.
Many fans took to social media platforms to express their disappointment with Ilebaye’s decision.
Some criticized her while others questioned her motives for sharing such personal information publicly. One particular netizen on Twitter known as Emeka Umeh quoted her and reproached her for being greedy.
“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 (******Providus). We won’t be responsible for any misappropriation of funds. Thank you.”
