Billionaire businessman Ayiri Emami has allegedly given $350,000 to Tayo Faniran, who lost the Big Brother Hotshots title to his Tanzanian housemate Idris.
The reality show ended on Sunday December 7, 2014, after 63 days of stiff competition.
According to media reports in Nigeria, the businessman who keenly followed the BBA Hotshots competition said he was proud of the Nigerian representative despite the fact that he lost to another competitor.
Emami vowed to top the $300,000 prize money that Big Brother offered, by adding $50,000.
Meanwhile, Tayo met his son for the first time Monday after returning from the Big Brother Africa house. Tayo’s girlfriend gave birth to a baby boy.
