The Big Brother Naija Season 6 winner said he planned to use his new chieftaincy position to encourage young people in his Lagos State community.
In an interview on Tuesday, Whitemoney responded to the development by saying that young people looked up to him as a role model for upholding the values of the Igbo culture.
He said, “I intend to use my title and position as ńwà àfòr Igbo to positively influence the youths in my community. I will actively engage and mentor them as much as possible because I understand that so many of them look up to me.
“They were inspired to confer me with the chieftaincy title as the Pride of Igbos in Lagos State because of how I generally promote and uphold the values of the Igbo culture.
“They believe that I am a good fit and a role model to the Igbo youths in my community because of how I faced hardship while growing up and how I was able to persevere positively with hard work, God and determination.
“Everyone knows how particular I am about my culture, so it was only right to add a title to it in Lagos State by my community. I’ve learnt that all that glitters is not gold and that no one can be there for you and inspire you more than yourself.”
