After three long months, an all star was crowned and our Gen Z baddie was it!
Ileybaye won big in the recently concluded Big Brother Naija All Stars, coping the grand prize of ₦120 million. Her success was met with a variety of reactions from celebrities.
Here’s how celebrities reacted to her win:

His tweet read, “ILEBAYE ….I love a success story!“
Big Brother alumnus Natacha Akide came through with some shade after Ilebaye was announced winner. The media personality, who had been vocal about the all stars season from the very beginning, took to her Twitter with a shady post.
She said, “Are we clearrr now!!!??? Point proven yeees!!!??” Her tweet was perceived to be directed at Mercy, who was the first runner-up on the show. During her time in the house Mercy had vowed to win the reality show a second time, as she had once emerged victorious in 2019.
In another tweet, an elated Tacha rejoiced over Ilebaye’s win and congratulated her, “My girl brought it HOME!!!! I no fit support who no go win!!! ILEBAYE MONEY!!!! BAYE Money!!!! Pure entertainment Mehnn”
From one female victor to another, Ijeoma Josephina Otabor, aka Phyna extended her goodwill to Ilebaye. Taking to her Twitter as well, she said, “Congratulations Gen Z Baddie We levelled up !!”.
Phyna once emerged victorious as the winner of Big Brother Naija as well. After a long and well-fought battle in 2017, she won season 7 of the show.
Former BBN housemate Erica Nlewedim was active on her Twitter profile during the finale, tweeting every step of the way. Upon the announcement dubbing Ilebaye as the winner, she expressed her opinion, noting that the winner was obvious.
She also gave a word of advice for the producers of the reality show, telling them to amp up their security to avoid leaks, adding that the winners were already known.
Finally, Erica extended her congratulations to Ilebaye and her runner-up Mercy Eke.
She said, “It was abviasssss. BBN production should do better with the leaks sha, it was already known since last night. Congratulations to both Mercy and Ilebaye, you are winners”
