The #BBNaija finalist in a show of humility addressed the matter in a video he posted on his profile on Thursday, April 13, 2017.
Accompanied with the caption, "Only God know say I no go fit bite the fingers wey feed me. Only me one go start to handle my matter from today.#whoibe", Efe reiterated that he is still his humble self.
He told fans to expect an instant follow-back en masse as he is now personally handling his Instagram account.

In his address, he said, "Yes ooo Naija. Na una humble and .... humble boy. I no get which other English to speak.
"I just wan address the matter sharperly. Who I be wey I go carry my hand go unfollow people. Make una no reason am go as he be.
"As I fall out, people dey handle my account.
"Whoever feel say I don unfollow am, as I dey talk to you right now na me dey handle my account. No vex.
"God just bless me through una. I no come fit come dey form. Who I be? Wetin I be? Na una carry me reach here."
He went on to kneel, a gesture indicating how sorry he was concerning the issue.
