Big Brother Naija ”Shine Ya Eye” housemate, White Money has said that most Igbo people do not spend money where they work for it.
According to him, most people from the South East part of Nigeria would rather show off their wealth in their villages than in the cities where they reside or work.
He mentioned Cubana as an example of Igbo individuals who spend lavishly in their hometown.
While speaking with the other housemates, the BBNaija contestant; “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 pay rent to landlord but he has a mansion worth billions in his hometown.”
White Money listed Igbo men who have mansions in their hometown to include Obi Cubana and the Chairman of Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo aka E-Money.
He described E-money’s house as “Heaven that fell down and stayed in one part of Earth”.
He added; “Cross is from Oba. If you go to Obi Cubana’s house, it’s the same thing. They are plenty”.
