Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality star, Frodd, has taken to social media to share his encounter with a giveaway winner whom he had mistakenly sent N45,000 more than the established amount.
Frodd, in a series of Instagram stories, opened up about how he planned to give out the sum of N5,000 each to 10 single mothers as his way of supporting them.
During the course of transferring the money, he mistakenly added an extra zero to the amount, making it N50,000 instead of N5,000.
Upon discovering his mistake, the reality star reached out to the giveaway winner in question to return the excess money mistakenly sent.
However, the person in question pleaded with Frodd to accept N30,000 back instead of N45,000.
Frodd insisted on getting the N45,000 returned, explaining that there were other people who needed the money as well.
The lady in question wouldn’t budge. Rather, she sent back N35,000.
Justifying the action, the woman whose identity was kept hidden by the star explained that other people wouldn’t do the same.
She went on to state that Frodd was ‘bigger than this’.
In their words:
“If it was most people, they won’t even think of sending any money back to you. But I did and you’re telling me to go back and send the remaining 10k to you. What if you are walking on the road and you misplaced the money, what will you do? Moreover, you’re bigger than this.”
In a similar story, popular Nigerian comedian and Instagram sensation, Craze Clown – in April 2020 – took to social media with a brief recount of his experience with someone that won a cash giveaway that he organised.
The comedian in a post shared on his official Twitter page noted that the individual had won the sum of N10k on his page.
However, Craze Clown said when he was making the transfer, he made the mistake of sending N100k as opposed to the N10k won by the individual.
Upon realising the error, the comedian said he paid a visit to the Instagram page of the individual. To his surprise, the individual had blocked him on the platform.
