In many parts of the world, people love to hear good stories of success so as to feel inspired. However, these positive stories sometimes bring about controversies.
Relationship expert and social media blogger, Blessing Okoro, clocked 30 on May 23, 2019. To celebrate the big day, Okoro shared preparations for her glamorous birthday on social media.
However, the blogger gained more fans after she shared before and after photos of a seven-bedroom duplex that she claimed to have built eight years after her ex-husband threw her out of his one-bedroom apartment.
Blessing’s post partly reads: “8 years ago my ex-husband threw me out of his 1 bedroom apartment. 8 years later I built myself a 7 bedroom duplex….I picked up all the stones he threw at me to build myself…”
However, just two days after the blogger shared the news of her alleged new house, reports filtered on social media that a China-based man is the actual owner of the building and that Okoro only took photos of the house to share on social media.
In a voice note sent to Instablog9ja by one Onye Eze, the alleged real owner of the house, who is said to be based in China, called the blogger an idiot for trying to deceive people with his house. It was also gathered that the property is located at Republic Layout, Bricks Estate, Enugu state, and the blogger only lives close by.
According to reports, two residents of the estate also claimed that the lady only took photos of the property as well as that of the uncompleted building nearby and claimed they are before and after photos.
After numerous back and forth, Instagram blogger Blessing Okoro has finally admitted she lied about the new house she posted online, claiming she built it.
According to leaked Whatsapp voice notes published by Instablog, the blogger was heard telling her friend that she truly sought permission of the security guard at the house to allow her take photos she posted on Instagram. She also admitted that she has spoken to the owner of the house billionaire Onye Eze just to calm him down.
The blogger went ahead to say that she is now planning to wait for some time for the whole issue to go down and then build a replica of the house so as to post online to convince people.
The billionaire had planned to release his own approved building plan.
To further corroborate the story, Eze who was said to be in China is now in the country, and he took a quick trip to his property on Sunday, May 26. See the videos and listen to the voicenotes below as posted by Instablog9ja:
‘…Just as I was saying, I am going to build a replica of that building, exactly the same thing.When I took that picture, they had not finished building the house…’, the blogger was heard saying in one of the voice notes.
