Champion of BBNaija Season 2, Efe, popularly known as Efemoney, has offered clarifications on the supposed rift with organisers of the show Multichoice Nigeria.
He also said he was not blacklisted as insinuated in many quarters after winning the competition
Blogger Noble Igwe had also offered suggestions on why #BBNaija 2007 winner, Efe Ejeba, may have been blacklisted.
According to the fashion mogul, the “See Gobe” season 2 winner might have acted arrogantly towards a top manager of the organisers
He made this known while responding to a lady on social media who said: “Whatever Efe did to Multichoice pls they should forgive. When you punish a child you use the other hand to drag him closer. I heard he’s apologised and tried to make amends. They can’t continue to shut it out pls.”
The 42-year-old entrepreneur responded: “He sat in the car and asked for Oga to come first before he comes out.”
Reacting to social media speculation, Efe in a statement via his Instagram account, noted there was nothing like that.
He said he has a cordial relationship with the Multichoice Nigeria while also expressing gratitude to the organisers and the entirety of its staff for offering him the platform on which he now thrives. He also thanked fans for their unwavering support.
The statement reads: “This is to address online publications making rounds about reasons for my noticeable absence from BB Naija events as a winner of the Season 2 edition of the famous reality tv show. It is incumbent on me to set the records right and also account to my fans, supporters and well-wishers.
“I was brought up in a family and society where respect to fellow human beings is highly valued and respect to elders is unquestionable. Unnecessary ego-boosting protocols or feeling of much Importance have never been attractive to me as it is to you,” he said.
“Therefore, it is unimaginable for someone to conceive such character from me as a person and create a scenario that never existed. Hence, I’m clearly stating that the scenario which is making rounds in the media and public is false and never happened or occurred. This is as news to me as it is to you.
“Let me take this opportunity to thank MultiChoice Nigeria as an organization and her members of staff once again for giving me the platform to showcase my talent as a music artist thus creating vast amounts of opportunities shaping my person and brand today. I don’t take the platform for granted and it is a well cherished investment. I’m immensely grateful and commend your continuous effort in empowering the youths of our great country Nigeria.
“I want to state categorically that I have a cordial relationship with Multichoice Nigeria and we are one family.
“To my teeming fans and supporters whose expectations would have been for me to perform on a platform/show, it is understandable and I implore you to exercise patience as these are organizational prerogatives and I’m confident that in the future we’ll work together. Thank you for your unwavering love and relentless show of support. God bless… Efe.”
