Hermes Iyele, a former Big Brother Naija’shine ya eyes’ housemate and model, has a message for Filmmaker, Biodun Stephen, and others who have questioned him about his newly acquired accent.
The BBNaija star called out a specific bank on his Instagram story for embarrassing him at an event. According to him, he was invited to a bank function, but when he arrived, his name was not discovered on the list of visitors, and security barred him from entering the venue.
To make matters worse, the bank organizers did not intervene to rescue his face. The reality celebrity talked with an unusual accent, perplexing award-winning filmmaker Biodun Stephen.
Taking to a blog’s comment section, she questioned where his British accent was coming from.
Now replying her, Hermes stated that he reinvented himself despite coming from a slum. According to her, he put all his efforts into making himself a better person and is proud of who he has become.
“Those of you complaining about my accent, I know how much hard work I put into reinventing myself. I know exactly where I come from, to be exact, it’s a slum. Imagine the amount of hard work I put into this. I talk like this, and I am very proud of it. I can say it anywhere”.
