Ilebaye Ilebaye

Big Brother Naija All-Stars winner, Ilebaye Odiniya has finally reacted to the rumours of speaking to cowrie shells.

Ilebaye who brought in cowrie shells to Biggie’s house, explained that it was the only way she could connect with her late brother.

She said this during an appearance on Pulse’s 'One On One', hosted by another reality star, Christy O.

The host asked: “There is a claim online where CeeC was saying that you had cowries that you were talking to. Can you tell me more about it?”

Ilebaye responded: “I had something precious to me. Because obviously, you are supposed to have something precious when you’re doing something that you miss at home.

“And the cowries were for my late brother. It has been with me and even the baton. I have a baton on him too. I didn’t know where to keep it. I was just like, Oh! Let me hold something strong.

“It just helps me feel like he is around. He is still with me.”
