In an interview with media personality Hero Daniels, Ilebaye Odiniya, popularly known as Baye, the crowned champion of BBNaija All Stars, opened up about her experiences with people who had denied her help in the past and the sudden shift in their attitudes following her reality show victory.
The 22-year-old model shared a deeply personal and account of how a so-called friend had evicted her from her home at midnight because she had refused to be involved in a disturbing proposal.
Baye refused to let her friend exploit her by arranging an encounter with a man, a decision that led to her eviction.
Now, with the fame and fortune that came from winning BBNaija All Stars, Baye has seen a complete reversal in her interactions with these very individuals who had turned their backs on her.
Many have been reaching out to her through calls and messages, attempting to reconnect with her newfound success.
Despite the sudden surge of interest from these individuals, Baye confessed that she has yet to find the time or inclination to engage with them.
This transformation in her life has led her to reflect on the superficial nature of society’s values, where people often judge individuals solely based on their financial status.
In her words;
“People who denied me help in the past are calling and now in my DM.
“I just realised that in this world, people won’t recognise you except you have money. When you don’t have money, there’s no value. It’s like you don’t even have value. And I feel like that’s the wrongest mentality people have.
“I feel like you’re supposed to see people for who they are even if they don’t have money or they have money.”
