In a recent interview, Ilebaye, the winner of BBNaija Season 8 All Stars Edition, has reiterated the need for Seyi Awolowo to apologize to her parents over his remarks about her upbringing during their time in the house.
During an exclusive interview with Chude, Ilebaye was informed about comments made by Seyi while they were both contestants in the BBNaija house.
Chude brought up Seyi’s statement, saying, “Seyi said that you do not have home training.”
Ilebaye, who seemed surprised by the revelation, responded; “Well, I’m just hearing it, literally, I’m just hearing it for the first time. I’m telling you, I’m 100 percent just hearing it for the first time. I don’t even watch what happened inside the house. Even if I’m going through TikTok, I just see ‘Ilebaye love and light’ and scroll.”
Chude pressed; “So this is my exclusive, so I’m now telling you on behalf of the public that Seyi said you don’t have home training. What’s your response to that?”
Ilebaye responded; “My parents trained me so well, and that’s what I’m proud of. I’m grateful for my mum and dad for taking their time to groom me to become who I am today.”
“So I’ll just tell him, thank you; that’s all I can say. I hope if he sees my parents, he should apologize to them, not me. I’m cool, I’ve forgiven him,” she added.
