Ilebaye first came into the limelight in 2022 when she was the first female housemate called into Big Brother’s house for the “Level Up” edition of the show.

Her stay in the competition was, however, short-lived, as she was evicted in no time.

She, however, returned for the 2023 edition of the show tagged “All Stars” featuring previous winners Mercy Eke and Whitemoney.

The Gen Z baddie, however, survived eviction and was featured in the finale, after which she was announced by Ebuka Uchendu, the show presenter, as the winner of the season.

The organizers of BBNaija announced the winner of the 8th edition of the show won by Ilebaye will be going home with N120 million cash prize as well as other prizes.

Therefore, it is safe to estimate Ilebaye’s net worth to be over N120 million, considering the other prizes and money won from house games during the competition.

Some netizens believed Ilebaye’s winning the show was as a result of her playing the victim card whenever she is in a fight or clash with other housemates.

Others however, were of the opinion that she was being intentionally bullied by other housemates who are older and have more fans than her prior to the start of the competition.
