Many people expected
Whitemoney to invest his winning prize money in a restaurant, but she chose music instead, which many fans despised.
In response to the criticism that has accompanied his decision to pursue music, Whitemoeny stated that criticism is good for business.
“CRITICISM IS THE REASON WHY SOME PEOPLE ARE AT THE TOP. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? IMAGINE IF EVERYONE DOES NOT LIKE ZAZU, WILL HE BE THERE? SO I’LL SAY CRITICIZE ME AND YOU’LL SIMPLY PUT ME AT THE TOP. I’M DOING WHAT I’M DOING FOR FUN AND I’M MAKING MONEY.”
“USING YOUR DATA TO CRITICIZE ME AND I’M THERE CASHING OUT. THE MORE PEOPLE CRITICIZE, THE MORE THEY STREAM. WHEN YOU CONDEMN SOMETHING, OTHERS WILL CHECK IT OUT AND YOU ARE ADDING TO MY STREAMING NUMBERS,” THE BBNAIJA STAR SAID.
Whitemoney explained why he has yet to open a restaurant during a press conference.
It is not enough, he claims, that he is not a celebrity or a reality star; he has also been unable to obtain a space in Lekki with the N30 million he won on the reality show.
“COOKING IS A LIFESTYLE THAT TURNED INTO A STRATEGY FOR PEOPLE. THAT’S HOW I WAS RAISED. I STILL COOK TILL TODAY. NOBODY COOKS MY FOOD, NOBODY CLEANS MY HOUSE, I DO THAT. I DO EVERYTHING MYSELF. THAT’S MY LIFESTYLE.”
SO THIS IS IT, TO OPEN A PUBLIC COOKING SPOT WILL COST YOU MILLIONS OF NAIRA. NOT EVEN THE MONEY I WON CAN GET YOU A SPACE IN LEKKI. I WON N30 MILLION AND SPACE IN LEKKI IS CLOSE TO N100 MILLION. I DON’T HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY…”
“I HAVE BEEN COOKING IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES. I’VE BEEN A JUDGE ON COOK-OUT SHOWS AND I’VE EVEN BEEN DOING PRIVATE COOKING FOR FAMILIES. AND I’LL KEEP SAYING IT, IT’S MORE IMPORTANT TO WIN OFFLINE THAN TO WIN ONLINE. WINNING ONLINE WON’T PAY BILLS. I’M AN OFFLINE WINNER. IF YOU KNOW ME, YOU’LL KNOW I PULL CROWD OFFLINE AND NOT ONLINE”, WHITEMONEY ADDED.
