Big Brother Naija season 5 Lockdown reality television star and ex-housemate, Timmy Sinclair better known as Trikytee has debunked the rumour making the rounds that he demanded for N500,000 appearance fee in order to join EndSARS protest in Bayelsa State.
This was made known on social media by a Nigerian man identified as Mc Ijawpikin. And according to him, Trikytee was contacted by Bayelsa youths to lead the EndSARS protest in his community and began demanding for N500k appearance fee.
The allegations further stated that Trikytee insisted that he’s a Lagos-based at the moment and before he could be able to make it to his hometown, he needs to be paid.
Mc ljawpikin; “We wanted him to come over, he said we should pay appearance fee, we said It’s as a means of support to bring thee youths out, he said he can’t come, we offered to do logistics, Baba said logistics won’t do that 500k is appearance fee, we said ok if he can’t come he should support with with a video since we can’t afford his appearance Baba said we should pay for the video shout out, that he is a lagos based and has nothing to do with Bayelsa, Oh Akene you were not there to record this convo.”
However, on seeing the allegations being trended online, the reality TV star came out with a post to debunk the news saying it’s false.
Trikytee noted that he has been out on the street of Lagos every other day protesting with well-meaning Nigerians adding that he would not shortchange himself by asking for payment.
Trikytee tweeted; “I have seen tweets going round about me requesting for money to support the #Endsars protest with my people in Bayelsa. Firstly that is not true and a lot of people can testify that I have been in support of this protest both online and offline.
“As a Nigerian youth I am passionate about the movement to #EndSars and #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria. There’s no way I would want to sit out the protest even when my management has requested I tone down. Why would I want to shortchange myself by asking for payment???
“The news making rounds online is completely false and should be treated as such. I am for a good Nigeria and an end to police brutality. I have been out almost every other day in Lagos protesting alongside concerned Nigerian youths. #EndSARS”
