Tayo lost the $300,000 BBA Hotshots grand prize to Tanzanian Idris but since then has received an outpouring of support and gifts from various Nigerians.
Just days after it was reported that he would be given the sum of $350,000 by Warri billionaire, Ayiri Emami, Nigerian custom goods maker, Malivelihood created the beautiful iPhone specially for Tayo with the inscription, Tayo. F.
“MALIVELIHOOD customised 24KT gold iPhone 6 for @Tayofaniran, you did well and put Nigeria on the Top ,Gold bless #luxury #gold #iPhone #gift #love #Africa #Nigeria”
Actor turned politician, Desmond Elliot has also promised Tayo the sum of N100,000.
Seems like losing the BBA Hotshots contest might be the best thing to ever happen to Tayo afterall.
