Big Brother Naija ”Shine Ya Eye” housemate, Hazel Oyeze, known as White Money, has revealed why the Igbos embrace the tradition of spraying money, mentioning Obi Cubana and Emeka Okonkwo, a music executive producer popularly known as E-Money, while explaining.
In a chat with other housemates, White Money said that he cannot spray money in Lagos.
He then went ahead to explain why the Igbo people show off their wealth in their home town rather than Lagos.
According to him: ”I’m speaking for the Igbo clan; majority of the Igbo do not spend money where they hustle for money.
”I’m hustling in Lagos, I won’t be balling in Lagos. If you want to know my worth, follow me to my village.
”An Igbo man can be living in a flat here and be paying rent to landlord but he has a mansion worth billions in his home town.”
Another housemate, Princess, added her two cents to the conversation, saying: ”People that have built such mansions have probably helped a lot of their villagers and sponsored a lot of people.”
White Money went on to mention some Igbo men that have mansions in their home town. He mentioned the likes of Obi Cubana and E-Money.
He said that E-money’s house is like ”heaven that fell down and situated in one part of the earth”.
Cross, another housemate, who happens to be from the same town as Obi Cubana, also said the house of the popular nightclub owner is also the same thing, adding that there are many other Igbo persons who are rich and have mansions in their hometown.
Oba town in Anambra State has been in the news for about two weeks following the lavish burial that Obi Cubana held for his late mother and how money rained down during the week-long event.
