Entertainment Big Brother Africa: Tayo Faniran Denies Receiving $350,000 Gift


Nigeria’s representative in the recently concluded Big Brother Africa Hotshots 2014, Tayo Faniran, has denied claims that he received $350,000 from a Warri-based billionaire, Ayiri Emami.

Tayo, who lost to Tanzanian Sultan Idris in the final round of the BBA, disclosed the reports of $350,000 gift from Emami was not true, according to Daily Times report.

The news had gone viral few days after the end of the BBA 2014 that Emami had given Tayo the huge sum as compensation for losing out to Idris Sultan unjustly.

So far, no comment had been made by the Warri-based billionaire about the authenticity of the story.

Who do you think is out to play games here, the billionaire, the media or Tayo?

Why didn't he, in that same breath, confirm or deny the gold iPhone gift?


Tayo is probably responding to different reports one-at-a-time.

Lets wait and see how he responds to the iPhone story...if he responds!
