“For Erica Nlewedim, BBNaija season 5 star, Lockdown edition whose journey on the show came to an emotional end – To realise some of her hopes and aspirations,” a summary on the platform read.
The fundraiser is aimed at reaching the goal of a N38,150,000.00 to assist the reality TV star who missed the chance to win the grand prize money of N85 million the show has to offer.
Erica was disqualified for breaching house rules. This was after she confessed that she poured water on the bed she was to share with her deputy Head of House, Prince, to prevent both of them from sleeping on the same bed.
