Pere Egbi, the popular Big Brother Naija star, has been chastised by a Nigerian journalist named Jackson Ude for rejecting his supposed relationship with Rashida Bello, the first lady of Kogi state.
Jackson Ude had accused Pere of having a connection with the wife of the Kogi state governor a few weeks ago, but Pere publicly disputed Jackson Ude’s charges, calling them a gossip.
In previously deleted tweets, Jackson questioned Pere Egbi about why he is often photographed with Rashida Bello, writing:
“Why is #BBNaija Pere Egbi all over the place with Kogi First Lady, Rashida Bello? Gist around Abuja says that they are lovers. Egbi and Mrs Bello are said to have been sighted severally at the Hilton Hotel Abuja. The gist is that when they first met, First Lady gifted Egbi N5 million”.
