CorrectNG reported few months ago that Hanks Anuku cried out for help and support as he revealed that he’s been jobless for years.

Hanks opened up on his struggles and called on the Delta State Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori, and his fans to come to his aid.

The thespian was reacting to the viral video of him working as a fuel attendant at gas station in Delta State. He said despite being a legend, he has been feeding from hand to mouth.

He said; “I have worked for this country. I have attained the height of being a legend. But I’ve had no job for, God knows, how many years. And I expect that Nigerians will also know that I did it all for them.

“I just gonna ask Governor Sheriff [Oborevwori] to please send support to me. And my fans who truly love and appreciate the works I’ve done for them, if you think you truly love me, may God help you all to help me.”

Ilebaye Odiniya said she still felt sad that some of her colleagues didn’t congratulate her after being announced as the winner of Big Brother Naija All Stars.

She stated this in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, as she explained that it reminded her of the betrayal she endured at a young age and how it made her afraid of making friends.

Ilebaye also said her fellow ex-housemates’ action towards her after the show reignited the loneliness and abandonment she felt when she was bullied in the house.

The 22-year-old reality TV star said; “I am still hurt that I didn’t get congratulations from some of the housemates because I know that If I were in their shoes, I would be happy for them. In the bathroom scene with Ike, she said, ‘I felt sad and lonely, I was like what did I do to deserve this?

Even if I have done something to hurt you, you should have just come to me to talk about it, not throwing my clothes. I just felt like ‘God open the ground let it swallow me’. My energy just went low”.
