Eniola Badmus Dragged For Charging N150k From Philanthropist To Do N500k COVID-19 Giveaway

Top Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus has been criticized for charging an extra N150,000 from a philanthropist who wanted her to do a N500,000 giveaway to Nigerians amid the coronavirus lockdown through her Instagram page

The giveaway sponsor made this known by publicly sharing his Instagram Direct Message conversation with Eniola Badmus.

In the shared conversation, the philanthropist reached out to the actress wanting to sponsor a N500k giveaway through her platform using his name @piusomoyele.

Following the backlash by social media users, Eniola releases a statement on her Instagram page to clarify the negative notion making rounds about the N150K she charged the generous giver.

The actress argued that giving out the money to 100 people takes time and will involve bank charges. She wrote:

“I woke up to this and I thought it will be nice to give clarity ad clear the air on it. This incident has 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 500( hundred0 thousand Naira giveaway and I felt there will be extra cost for bank charges and stamp duty, which I wasn’t going to bare(sic) the transfer charges for that, so I asked he bares(sic) 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(sic) 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 have always been a fan of adding value to lives and my yearly #eniolabadmusfeedstheneedy speaks volumes in this regard. We can’t be discouraged. Keep staying safe guys!”
