I didn’t squander the money from my BBNaija win – Efe Ejeba
Rumors that Efe Ejeba wasted the winnings from his 2017 BBNaija run have been refuted.
The reality television star won the second season of Big Brother Naija, which took place in 2017.
However, the rapper has been conspicuously quiet since winning the “Double Wahala” competition.
His music career did not get off to as hot of a start as that of the more popular musicians.
Additionally, there were rumours that Efe spent his win money carelessly.
He addressed this in an interview with media entrepreneur Chude Jideonwo and identified this criticism as one of the drawbacks of a celebrity.
The reality TV personality emphasised, referring to himself in the third person, “Efe didn’t squander the money.”
Efe responded to rumours that, as a result of his absence from BBNaija’s events, he and the show’s producers are not on friendly terms.
“There’s no truth to that, we’re actually on good terms. Everything is cordial, we are cool, we are fine,” he added.
“I don’t know where all that gossip came from, that’s what they say comes with the price of fame. I’ve always been a straight and honest person. If you’ve noticed I’m not the type that seeks attention, I just mind my business.
“As I said, I’m focused on my music, and to be honest with you, if I wasn’t into music, I don’t think I’ll even be in the public space.
“I for don carry my money go. But this is what I love to do, this is what I have a lot of vision towards my career and goals, so I have to be in the space, still, interact and do what I need to do.
“So, like I said it comes with fame. When you are drama-free, something will just want to chase you. I used to always say it, like why I dey my own I no do anything but people dey always come.
“Some people would say just take it easy like they always say, even if it’s bad publicity, for the people to still find it necessary to talk about you then you’re still relevant.”
