Mixed reactions as Erica’s GoFundMe amasses more than BBNaija’s N30 million prize money
A GoFundMe donation which was set up for disqualified BBNaija housemate Erica has sparked fresh reactions on social media
This comes after the donation amassed over N30 million which is the BBNaija prize money
Fans have now taken to social media condemning the donation especially since the young lady had the opportunity to turn it down just like Prince did
Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) disqualified housemate, Erica Nlewedim, no doubt has one of the most loyal fan bases in the 2020 season of the reality show and this is evident in the length they are willing to go to support her.
Shortly after the young lady was booted out, a GoFundMe account was set up for her with a goal of raising N100 million for her since she lost her earnings from the show and also lost the opportunity to contend for the N85 million grand prize.
Well, in light of Laycon emerging as the winner of the season, some of Erica’s fans were quick to take to social media and brag about raising more than the prize money on her behalf.
However, this was received with mixed reactions from members of the internet community.
One displeased fan wrote:
“I have being saying this Erica is not sick why beg? The sick & dying ones in the hospital, on the street will never get 4m for an operation of 4.5m. yet we blame govt. We the youth are the problem. Set up a go fuñd me account to send children to school, you get nothing.”

Some of Laycon’s fans also submitted that if a GoFundMe is initiated on his behalf, they will raise more than what is being contributed for Erica.
One fan said:
Laycon is the biggest person ever in the history of Big Brother Niaja.
