nigerians wants to contribute their 2k/5k to someone that just won 120million few hours ago. Pathetic.
Reacting to the backlash, Ilebaye put out a new tweet and she disabled comments
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
