Otumba, a social media celebrity known for his honest and often controversial thoughts on Twitter, has ignited a heated debate by criticizing Ilebaye’s supporters, who recently presented her with a large 3.5 million Naira along with an assortment of presents and cash awards.
Otumba called anyone who donated money to Ilebaye “daft.” His reasoning was that Ilebaye had already won Big Brother Naija All Stars, a victory that came with a hefty 120 million Naira grand prize.
In his opinion, her family’s decision to pool their wealth when she had already earned a large sum appeared to be nothing short of idiotic. Furthermore, Otumba pointed out that some of these altruistic well-wishers may not even have the financial wherewithal to help.
Ilebaye recently shared a direct message (DM) she received from one of her ardent admirers.
According to the fan, several of Ilebaye’s old Big Brother Niger coworkers admired her, although from afar. They had begun to imitate her attire, mannerisms, and even the odd terminology she employed.
In addition, Phyna, a past Big Brother Naija winner, revealed something that contributed to the tension.
Phyna answered a fan’s question about her relationship with Ilebaye during an interactive Q&A session on her Instagram account. Her comment, implying that she believed they were cool but gently implying that they weren’t, peaked my interest in the true nature of their friendship.
