Chizom founded Code Hub Africa Tech, an online training and mentorship programme for tech enthusiasts.

On October 31, he had announced a coding project for which he called young programmers to enroll.

Chizom had also charged Don Jazzy, the Nigerian record producer, to sponsor 100 people as a gesture of youth empowerment.

“Dear Don Jazzy, would you like to sponsor 100 Nigerian youths to learn how to code at our online mentorship program? It’s N15k per person,” he wrote, as Nigerians assisted in calling the attention of the record producer.

In response, Don Jazzy transferred N1.5 million to Chizom, nudging him to proceed with selecting candidates.

But on Wednesday, a chat between Chizom and a female Nigerian seeking the scholarship surfaced online.

In the chat, Chizom appeared to be flirting and asking to meet with the lady who sought information regarding the scholarship.

Shortly after he was called out on Twitter, Chizom took to his page to break his silence with an apology.

He also claimed that he has never asked anyone “sex in exchange for my tech service.”

“I am broken at the events I have caused. This hurts me that I have hurt a lot of people and my sponsors.
Twitter has helped me grow, learn, be impacted, and help to contribute to others,” he wrote.

“I am deeply sorry because this hurts me that I messed up as a Husband, friend, creator, and leader.

“I deeply regret my actions and take full responsibility for these actions. I learn every day and make mistakes. I will do better. I promise. Forgive me.

“I have never asked for sex in exchange for my tech service. That information is false.”
