Controversy

In 2020 during the lockdown, Badmus was caught in a messy giveaway controversy.

An online source reported that she was contacted by an American-based individual, Pius Omoyele, to dispense N500,000 to Nigerians. Eniola allegedly requested a fee of N150,000 to distribute the cash.

This caused an outburst from Omoyele, who accused her of trying to defraud him.

In one of her posts on Instagram, Eniola refuted the accusation, claiming that she is entitled to a fee to carry out such a duty. She wrote, “I woke up to this and I thought it would be nice to give clarity and clear the air on it. This incident has nothing to do with taking advantage of people or discouraging the need to give out especially using my platform.

“This particular person indicated interest to do a 500( hundred thousand Naira giveaway and I felt there will be extra cost for bank charges and stamp duty, which I wasn’t going to bear the transfer charges for, so I asked him to bear it.

“But in scenarios where people engage you as an influencer to drive giveaways from a business point of view, then business conversations need to happen.

“Meanwhile I posted the giveaway already on my page and he’s been enjoying the fame because he insisted I put his handle.

“We all know sending money to 100 people is quite tasking. Is just funny the way people are quick to judge.

“I am and have always been a fan of adding value to lives and my yearly #eniolabadmusfeedstheneedy speaks volumes in this regard. We can’t be discouraged,” she added.
