Renown Media Figure, Eniola Badmus has reacted to claims from her followers on Instagram for allegedly holding onto a sponsors N500,000.
Word on the Street has it that Eniola was given the sum of N500k to share amongst poor citizens to help reduce the effect of the Covid19 lockdown in the country and she kept the money to herself after the sponsor refused to pay her N150,000 for the giveaway services.
Screenshots of the DM leaked online shows that Miss Badmus only mentioned the 150,000 charges after the man had sent the money. She had already posted the 500,000 giveaway on her Instagram page before everything went sour.
To worsen the case, Eniola Badmus allegedly blocked the sponsor from reaching her.
The actress has now clarified the Allegations levelled against her with a new post on her twitter page.
“I woke up to this and i thought it would be nice to give clarity and clear the air on it. The incident hasn’t nothing to do with taking advantage of people or discouraging the need to give out especially using my platform.
This particular person indicated interest to do a five hundred thousand Naira giveaway and i felt there will be extra cost for bank charges and stamp duty, which i wasn’t going to bare the transfer charges for that, so i asked he bares it.
But in scenarios where people engage you as an influencer to drive giveaways from a business point of view, then business conversations need to happen.
Meanwhile i posted the giveaway already on my page and his been enjoying the fame because he insisted i put his handle.
We all know sending money to 100 people is quite tasking, is just funny the way people are quick to judge.”
