I will use my chieftaincy title to inspire youths-whitemoney

Big Brother Naija season 6 winner and Reality TV star, Hazel Onou, known popularly as Whitemoney, has said he intends to use his new chieftaincy title to positively inspire youths in his community in Lagos State.

Whitemoney has bagged a chieftaincy title as the “Ùgwù ńdi Igbo,” meaning “The Pride of Igbos,” on Saturday.

Responding to the development in an exclusive interview with Midweek Entertainment on Tuesday, Whitemoney said youths saw him as a role model for promoting the ideals of the Igbo culture.

He said, “I intend to use my title and position as ńwà àfòr Igbo to positively influence the youths in my community. I will actively engage and mentor them as much as possible because I understand that so many of them look up to me.

They believe that I am a good fit and a role model to the Igbo youths in my community because of how I faced hardship while growing up and how I was able to persevere positively with hard work, God and determination.

“Everyone knows how particular I am about my culture, so it was only right to add a title to it in Lagos State by my community. I’ve learnt that all that glitters is not gold and that no one can be there for you and inspire you more than yourself.”
