In a stunning turn of events, Ilebaye Precious Odiniya, popularly known as the “Genz baddie,” has secured victory in the highly anticipated Big Brother Naija All Stars edition. The 22-year-old reality TV star outshone her competitors, notably defeating Mercy to claim the prestigious cash prize of ₦120 million.
With an impressive 30% of the votes cast, Ilebaye triumphed over her closest rival, Mercy, who garnered 23% of the votes. The journey of the Kogi-born social media sensation in the Big Brother house was marked by controversy, refreshing moments, and profound experiences. Although not initially the frontrunner, Ilebaye gradually won the hearts of viewers as a series of events propelled her to a meteoric rise, establishing her as the leading contender for the coveted title.
Throughout the season, Ilebaye found herself entangled in complex relationships with fellow housemates. Opinions among viewers were divided, with some suggesting that certain actions were strategically orchestrated maneuvers to deceive the public. Others maintained that her actions were genuine, with accusations from supporters of other contestants claiming she played the pity and victim card to gain favor.
Ilebaye’s jovial and amiable personality endeared her to a vast fanbase, earning her massive support from viewers. The social media sensation was the fourth housemate introduced among the 24 contestants in the seventh season of BBNaija. While many rallied behind her to win the N100 million grand prize in 2022, the title ultimately went to model Phyna.
Returning for the Big Brother Naija “All Stars” Season 8 in 2023, Ilebaye not only secured a spot in the top six finalists but emerged as the ultimate winner.
