Charles Born, the media personality, has called out Ilebaye Odiniya, the winner of the Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) All-Stars, for allegedly being disrespectful.


Ilebaye defeated all other housemates to win the grand prize of N120 million at the BBNaija finale on October 1.

Since her win, the reality star has been on media rounds.

But in a recent Instagram live session, Charles narrated his recent encounter with the 22-year-old reality TV star.


The TV presenter said their production team had started filming Pere and Adekunle when Ilebaye arrived on set.

He said Ilebaye became “upset” and decided to “leave after waiting for a short while, despite efforts to calm her down”.

Charles described Ilebaye’s actions as “disrespectful and nasty”, adding that there are “consequences for every action” in the entertainment industry.


The broadcaster also slammed Ilebaye, saying “N120 million can get you a lot of things but it cannot get you character”.

“We had started filming Pere and Adekunle when Ilebaye arrived. I did not know but we were informed that Ilebaye was outside waiting,” he said.

“After we were done, Ilebaye said she was upset that we kept her waiting. She arrived on set when we were filming two people. There was no way we were going to cut what we were doing to bring her on set.

“She said, in her words, ‘how dare we keep her waiting? What rubbish is that?’ Her chaperone kept begging her, but she wasn’t budging.


“Myself and my producer got off set to talk to her but before stepping out, she had driven off. I was really upset because this was very disrespectful.

“She did not ask to see the presenters or producers, she just got upset and left. I also have a life, the producers and the production company have a life.

“You can choose to react however you want but there are consequences for every action. It is a very small industry, you can’t be that nasty to anybody no matter what it is.

“I did not think waiting was enough reason for her to up and leave. For me, it was disrespectful, it was a spite to the production company, it was an insult to me, my co-host and my producer and it was a slap on our faces.


“It simply means she was telling us: “fuck you, I don’t care about you and I’m going to do whatever the fuck I want to do.” That is exactly what she said to us by leaving.

“N120 million can get you a lot of things but it can’t get you character. And what sustains you in this industry and in life is good character.”
