BBNaija All Stars winner, Ilebaye has broken her silence amid criticism from cybernauts over her tweet.
This comes after Ilebaye took to her X handle to drop her account details for fans’ donations.
She had raised an alarm regarding a trending scam, stating that some unscrupulous elements were trying to get money from her fans while hiding under her name.
To avoid this, Ilebaye posted her account number on her official handle, telling all her fans who wish to give to send money there instead.
In reaction, netizens seemingly misinterpreted her tweet, insinuating that she was attempting to amass more money from fans despite securing N120M.
Addressing the misconceptions, Ilebaye in a new tweet noted that her previous tweet was only to quash fraudulent activities perpetrated by some individuals, adding that she never solicited funds.
In her words:
“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.”

In other news, Kachi Ucheagwu, a former housemate on the Ultimate Love reality TV show, stirred up controversy by questioning the legitimacy of Ilebaye Odiniya’s victory in the recently concluded BBNaija All Stars edition.
Ilebaye Odiniya, a 22-year-old housemate, emerged as the winner of the Big Brother Naija All Stars edition, taking home the grand prize of N120 million after almost 10 weeks in the Big Brother house.
Kachi Ucheagwu expressed his doubts about the win on the micro-blogging platform, X (formerly Twitter), suggesting that Ilebaye’s victory was driven more by sympathy rather than merit.
He compared her victory to the state of Nigeria on its Independence Day, stating that the prevalence of pity and sympathy over meritocracy was a reflection of the nation’s stunted growth.
