Her effortless victory came as a surprise to many, as she triumphed over strong contenders like Mercy Eke, CeeC, and other finalists, including Adekunle, Pere, and Cross.
Taking into account, Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede took to social media to dispense her thoughts on Ilebaye’s deserving win.
She expressed her admiration for Ilebaye, a native of Kogi State and explained why she believed Ilebaye deserved to win over other contestants, particularly Mercy Eke and CeeC.
Yvonne Jegede highlighted the theme of underestimation that ran throughout Ilebaye’s journey in the BBNaija All Stars competition. Ilebaye was consistently underrated by her fellow contestants, who viewed her as an underdog during the show.
However, despite facing numerous hindrances, Ilebaye exuded mental strength and determination.
During the competition, Ike Onyema in collaboration with Pere, Seyi, and Kiddwaya, among others, frustrated Ilebaye by throwing her clothes on the toilet way. Additionally, Mercy Eke, the winner of BBNaija 2019, confidently claimed that she would secure a second victory.

Mercy Eke turned out to be the first runner-up.

“Yes girl…. You deserve it. Nobody should be underestimated.”
