The management of Heritage Bank has announced on their social media timeline on Instagram to debunk the rumours that Tobi, a contestant on the Big Brother Naija reality TV how is one of their staff.
According to a brief statement issued by the bank, 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 follows the speculations making rounds that the bank, which is the official sponsor of this year’s show, are influencing it in favour of the contestant. The bank has 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.
Remember Tobi had mentioned once on the show during the Pepsi Challenge, 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 had mentioned that he would live large if he eventually wins the ultimate prize of N45million, didn’t say anything about resigning with the bank he is or was working with.
Well, according to some sources, he is from a very influential home with his dad rumoured to be a senior director at First City Monument Bank.
Some of his fans are even saying that if Cee-C understands what she is toying with she wouldn’t be misbehaving with Tobi on the Big Brother Naija show.
