Big Brother Naija contestant, Tobi has been disowned by the management of Heritage Bank- an institution whom it was alleged he works for.
The management of Heritage Bank has announced on their social media timeline on to debunk the rumours that Tobi, a contestant on the Big Brother Naija reality TV how is one of their staff.
The brief statement issued by the bank stated that Tobi resigned appropriately prior to the beginning of the show and he is not in any way affiliated with the bank.
The statement reads:
“We know you have all been wondering about Tobi’s connection to Heritage Bank,” said the statement, adding, “This is to clarify that he is a former staff of the bank and resigned appropriately prior to the Big Brother Naija show @bigbronaija.”
This clarification is just appropriate to clear the speculations making rounds that the bank, which is the official sponsor of this year’s show, is influencing it in favour of the housemate.
The bank has however made it known that they do not have any work with Tobi again therefore they are not influencing the show with their support for Tobi, just as perceived by some people.
Once on the show during the Pepsi Challenge, Tobi had mentioned that the prize money for the challenge is a little bit more than what he earns annually from his bank job. Although he didn’t give any hint if he was still with the bank.
He also revealed that he would live large if he eventually wins the ultimate prize of N45million, although he didn’t say anything about resigning with the bank he is or was working with.
Sources has however revealed that Tobi is from a very influential home with his dad rumoured to be a senior director at First City Monument Bank.
A lot of his fans has even insisted that if Cee-C understands what she is toying with she wouldn’t be misbehaving with Tobi on the Big Brother Naija show.
