In a recent interview with Lagos Talks 91.3 radio, BBNaija All Stars winner Ilebaye Odiniya addressed the misconception that she was only supported by fans out of pity because she was perceived as fragile and vulnerable compared to the other housemates.
Ilebaye clarified that she was supported by fans because it was her time to win, and not because of any pity or sympathy vote. She stressed that her win was purely based on merit and hard work.
Do you think you were supported because you were fragile while everyone else was older, bigger, and stronger than you?” the radio host asked.
In response, the 22-year-old millionaire said, “To me, I feel it’s because they have this love for me; not because I am underdog. They have this genuine love for me and they know I should be the one to win the money and it’s my time.”
