5 Nigerian Celebrities Accused Of Not Paying Salaries Of Their Staff
As fans of popular Nigerian celebrities, we are aware of the numerous allegations fans come up with on a plethora of occasions when they feel it’s right to speak up. This article was created without any malicious intention. Burbles Media is bringing to you stories online the way they are and not for the purpose of defaming any celebrity.
Without further ado, here is a list of some Nigerian celebrities that have been accused of not paying their employees.
The first celebrity on the list is Lilo Aderogba. The former Big Brother Naija contestant was accused by her cook of failing to pay her salary last year. Using Twitter, a chef identified as Goodness Emenike called Lilo out on her behavior, saying;
@LiloAderogba I am a chef… I want my salary. I rendered services and I deserve to be paid my salary. It was my sweats I worked with.
@Liloaderogba I am a human being. I deserved to be paid my salary. I worked for it. You told your workers and security to chase me out when I came to your cafe to demand my salary. God will judge you!!!
She has refused to pay my wages.I worked for her as a chef…
I am not just coming to rant. I work for @Liloaderogba. When I went to her cafe, she insulted me and asked security to throw me out. I have some evidence of my chats and calls with her lawyer.
She blocked me from messaging her. I won’t back down because it’s my sweat. If you know her, kindly tell her to pay me my salary. I already sent my account details to her lawyer, Yemisi.
The famous Nigerian celebrity pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, is no stranger to controversy at this stage in his career. Biodun appeared in the news cycle again earlier this year, this time in a bad light. A church member identified as Nnenna Kalu-Ade, of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), recently accused Biodun Fatoyinbo of failing to pay the salaries of church workers. Nnenna resorted to social media to express her dissatisfaction with her pastor’s action. Taking to social media, she wrote,
@BiodunFatoyinbo People may not speak because they are afraid of you. I don’t blame them. I was like them too. But I’m no longer afraid. I left my fear by your gate on the day of my last worker’s meeting in your cult. I’ve never seen such cruelty: not paying workers’ salaries for months but expecting them to still show up every day.
Another Big Brother Naija celebrity who has been called out for not paying her employees’ salaries is Ka3na. In 2020, an anonymous man went on a video rant against the reality star, accusing her of failing to pay him and others despite the fact that they had worked for her for several days. He further claims that Ka3na locked them in the house for two to three days without providing them with food and that she directed them not to drink from her pure water. Watch the video below.
Funke Akindele-Bello is another woman who, over the years, has had complaints filed about her online regarding her treatment of staff. In 2020, her former employee, identified as Cassandra Owolabi, came forward with an over 15-minute video where she recounted the difficult working conditions and horrible leadership style she reportedly faced under Funke. Later, another woman identified as Ifeoma Tess resorted to Twitter with another allegation that the actress doesn’t like paying her workers.
Na wa for Funke Akindele o, how can most of your staff not have anything good to say about you? From verbal abuse to physical abuse and not paying them their salries. Oga.
Anytime I see her dancing I forget she’s a bad boss who doesn’t like to pay her staff chai. Dance is good.
Cubana Chief Priest
Lastly, in 2021, after Obi Cubana made headlines by turning his mother’s funeral into a carnival, One of his associates, Cubana Chiefpriest, sent him 46 cows in a trailer and also made it rain. Shortly after that, a reality star named Dr. Cherry went on social media to call out Cubana Chiefpriest for spraying money while owing his employees. In a post made via her Instagram story,
Some people sha get mind oo! So you carry 46 cow + bundles of cash to celebrate a dead old woman, but you will want to sleep with any young lady before you can offer her any help and owe your workers plus deduct from their salaries at any given excuse. All these Instagram buffalo’s with fakeness mmwtchew! A dirty tout will always be a dirty tout regardless of the camouflaging face they show off #rubbish
