The dispute centered around Ilebaye’s age, which had previously been shrouded in controversy following the emergence of a throwback video from her time on the set of Papa Ajasco.
The online community had been abuzz with discussions and speculations, with some netizens suggesting that Ilebaye’s participation in the show didn’t match her age.
However, the truth emerged amidst a confrontation in the house, leaving housemates in shock.
Cross, visibly frustrated with Ilebaye, emphatically confirmed her age, stating that she is indeed 22 years old. This revelation, which caught many off guard.
Doyin acknowledged that their collective oversight had likely shaped the viewers’ opinions and perceptions of Ilebaye, based on her calculated actions within the house.
Doyin lamented, saying, “Ilebaye has been playing a game. When I realized it, I felt so stupid. But it’s too late; the viewers would have given the money to her. Whitemoney was the first person to tell it to me, but I called it bluff. We’ve all been fooled.”
Cross, who is 33 years old himself, expressed disbelief at the revelation, questioning how they could have been so easily deceived by someone younger than themselves.
“How did we not see it? I am 33; she is 22. How did she fool us all?,” Cross said.
