Nollywood actress, Eniola Badmus has clarified the “giveaway fraud” allegations against her.
We reported yesterday that Eniola Badmus allegedly held on to a N500,000 given to her by a sponsor. The money was meant to be used as giveaway to her followers on behalf of the sponsor.
However, she allegedly refused to return the money or proceed with the giveaway after the sponsor refused to pay her “giveaway service” fee of N150,000.
Reacting to the allegations, Eniola Badmus wrote;
“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.”
