Super Eagles star shuts down Nigerian Twitter with money rain

Super Eagles star, Odion Ighalo broke the internet on Monday morning after he disclosed that he would be doing a giveaway.


The former Premier League star tweeted that he would be blessing 20 people from his timeline but he did not reveal how much he would be dashing out.

Within minutes of his post, several twitter users replied to his tweets and submitted their account details hoping to receive the showers of blessing. Ighalo was shocked at the rapid response and could not hold back his surprise that his followers were awake and ready to get the money.

The Super Eagles star revealed that he had already received several messages from Instagram but none of the followers on there would not benefit from the giveaway. Some followers claimed that they received money from the Super Eagles star but they refused to post screenshots of the bank alerts.

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) golden boot winner kept his followers in anticipation as he continued to give them hope about the number of accounts he still intended to transfer money too.

One Twitter user could not help but aim a dig at the number of people who dropped their account details after raining insults at the Nigeria international during the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the recently concluded AFCON.

A section of Twitter believed that the giveaway was a scam because the figures were not the same and nobody posted any screenshot or transaction details to prove that they received money from the Super Eagles star.

Within on hour, Ighalo claimed that he was done with the giveaway but would be back next week for another giveaway.

Twitter users continued to mention him to request for money. Fans in Ghana even mentioned the Nigeria international to find out when he would be doing a giveaway for the followers in Ghana.

Several fans believe that the giveaway was fake and rained insults on the Super Eagles stars and his ‘fake giveaway’

While some lamented that they were offline during the giveaway, we would like to know if you were one of the 20 people that received money from Ighalo.
