Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus was given the sum of N500k to share with people on her platform to help Nigerians cushion the effect of the lockdown caused by the deadly COVID-19 in the country and she held onto the money after the sponsor refused to pay her N150,000 for the giveaway services.
The sponsor shared screenshot of their conversation with Eniola badmus where she stated she will be charging #150,000 for the give away which she has posted on her IG.
She came out to clear the air on the issue stating she only charged the #150,000 for bank charges which she wasn’t going to pay because sending to money to 100 people is tasking.
I woke up to this and I thought it will be nice to give clarity and clear the air on it, this has nothing to with taking advantage of people or discouraging the need to give our 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.” I am and and have always been a fan of adding to lives and my yearly #eniolabadmusfeedstheneedy speaks volume in this regard. We cant be discouraged,Keep staying safe guys.
