It all started via the micro-blogging platform, after a fan with the username, @Oriaku tweeted that she has been admiring a N20,000 pant BBNaija’s Dorathy wore the previous day as poverty couldn’t let her afford it.

“The pants Dorathy wore yesterday that was eyeing is 20k. When will poverty leave me,” @Oriaku tweeted.

Then, Lilo took to a reply and told the fan to order the pant that she would pay…. “Order it! ‘ll pay for you. Happy new year,” Lilo told @Oriaku.

However, Mr Boluwatife Temitope, who saw Lilo’s reply got irritated and responded saying that Lilo couldn’t pay him for a job but can buy a pant for a fan.

“But you couldn’t pay for the Jobs I did for you. Celebrities and this public showcasing of being nice. You and your brand are evil!,” Boluwatife Temitope tweeted.

After some minutes, Lilo issued a statement through her lawyer explaining what transpired between her and the young man. And according to her, the young man messaged her on Twitter demanding he sends sample of works for her.

He was later asked by Lilo’s team to design a random logo which they rejected as a result of unprofessional outcome. Although, there was no prior payment agreement made for the random logo.

But after Boluwatife asked that he would be paid N70,000, Lilo responded to his request and sent him the money.

The lawyer’s post reads, “Mr Boluwatife Temitope made some allegations of our client: Lilo Aderogba. Mr Boluwatife contacted Lilo on Twitter in August 2020 and was given an email to forward his enquires by a member of Lilo’s team.

“Concurrently, Lilo’s team was involved in a give away and he offered to do the graphic designs for the give away winners.

“He also messaged that he has ideas. He wrote that he had ‘ideas’ for her brand and requested that a ‘task’ be given to him to test his abilities.

“He was asked by Lilo’s team to design a ‘random’ logo which was never used. Throughout this time, He had conversations with Lilo’s former PA and never Lilo.

“On delivery of the logo asked for as a trial, he was informed by a team member that the logo wasn’t good. A member of the team also offered to guide him to be a better designer.

“He messaged daily asking to join the team and this consistent messages Worried the team. At this point, he sent a message for a payment. A payment plan/agreement was never made. An invoice was never sent nor agreed upon.

“Lilo got to know about all these accusations today. As Lilo’s lawyer reached out to him and he demanded 70k. This was never discussed prior but the payment was made regardless.”

Meanwhile, immediately after receiving his payment, the complainant took to his Twitter page to confirm that Lilo has reached out to him and payment for the job has been received.

“She reached out to me through her lawyer and the bills have been sorted. Thank you all for the retweets and likes, it did everything and got me alot of jobs and help already, I sincerely appreciate. pray none of your hardwork would be taken advantage of. Thank y’all,” he tweeted.
