Veteran rapper terms #BBNaija as an avenue for fast money

Similar to Reuben Abati's thoughts, the femcee berated BBNaija for promoting cheap exposure.

Weird Mc.

The femcee spoke passionately about how a security guard, Ibrahim Mohammed Ogbanago who works with the United Bank for Africa (UBA) was rewarded by the company after returning $10,000 belonging to a bank customer.

According to the rapper whose real name is Adesola Idowu, the protective agent represented a symbol of hard work, honesty and integrity, far more dignifying than being a #BBNaija housemate.

Weird MC who posted a picture of Ogbanago shaking hands with UBA chairman, Tony Elumelu wrote:

"Last year July, a security man attached to UBA , Oba Akran Branch Ikeja Lagos did the unthinkable. He returned an opened envelope a customer lost in the bank that contained 10, 000 US dollars (about 3.5 million naira by then).

"His monthly salary was below 40, 000 naira. Some Nigerians then especially the youths mocked him on the Internet by insisting that he was not a normal Nigerian.

"Some said that his village gods made him not to take the money. Most interesting was those that he insisted that he will die poor.

"The man's name is Ibrahim Mohammed Ogbanago. Yesterday at UBA BANK annual general meeting, heaven opened for him.

"Though the bank refused to announce how much they gave him, two governors gave him total of 15, 000 dollars and the Senate will honour him physically on Tuesday with an award and 5 million naira.

"Some Nigerians tonight and afterwards will celebrate the winner of Big Brother Africa that will go home with 25 million. But the cash reward for BBN is for what?

"Ibrahim got his reward for hard work, honesty and integrity not by being indoors guzzling alcohol, partying, smoking or bathing naked for the world to see.

"I celebrate Ibrahim and urge Nigerians to know that honesty and integrity can be rewarded. We must shun all short cuts to wealth. Be contended but work hard."

Her comments are similar to the position of former presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abatiwho criticized the Big Brother Naija for its promotion of nudity and lacking moral value.

This however earned him a lot of criticism from followers of the reality television show who directed different type of shades at the media personality.
