Blessing CEO controversies

Blessing CEO is mostly known for her controversial statements on romantic relationships. In 2019, she was arrested for showing off a mansion that belonged to China-based Nigerian billionaire businessman, Onye Eze na Chinko, as her own. Blessing later apologised to her fans and showed off her own house which she reportedly completed in 2021, amid claims it belonged to one of her alleged baby daddies.

Blessing said in an interview: “I had been building my house before the Onye Eze (a businessman whose house she claimed to be hers) experience. It was not that experience that motivated me to build my house. However, we can say that experience made me faster at building my own house. It was just the right time; I did not do it to prove anybody wrong.”

In 2022, Blessing came under fire once again for undergoing liposuction on her belly and buttocks after she repeatedly advocated for women to be happy in their natural bodies.  She later reportedly claimed that she did not advise anyone not to do liposuction.

Later the same year, Blessing defended Lagos businessman and socialite, Ikechukwu Daryl Ogbonna, popularly known as IVD, after he allegedly killed his wife, Bimbo, in a case of domestic violence. In 2023, she was arrested for cyberbullying after she was accused of using her Instagram page to “bully, threaten and harass” Folashade Samuels, sister to the late Bimbo.

In November 2023, Blessing called out Nigerian Afrobeat singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, for allegedly owing IVD about N4.5 million after purchasing a car. IVD released a post on social media denying that Davido owed him any money. This made Blessing release angry posts, spilling details about IVD and threatening to expose more details if he did not apologise to her for throwing her under the bus. She also apologised to Davido for her posts.

Blessing has also been involved in disputes with another social media influencer known as Very Dark Man.

Her latest controversy as of the time of this article was when she posted a video content in which she called Benin women prostitutes in response to one of her disputes with Very Dark Man. Her statements attracted criticism from both fans and critics, including the winner of Big  Brother Naija season 7, Ijeoma Josephina Otabor, popularly known as Phyna, who is from Edo State.

In an interview with Punch, Blessing revealed that controversy was a strategy for her.

She said: “Controversy, for me, is a strategy. The reason people pick on the things I say is because they are real. They can relate to it privately but when they are in public, they condemn it because they feel exposed. When I talk about some topics, some people feel naked.

“All the noise and criticism about what I say is just an attempt to cover up themselves. I speak the truth. If it is not, it will not be relatable. Some people always ‘come for me’ because I publicly talk about things that happen in their closets.”

Blessing CEO net worth

According to reports, Blessing CEO’s net worth is estimated to be between $300,000 to $500,000.

Sharing a throwback photo of her wedding day, Blessing revealed how her former husband used to beat her, starting a week after her wedding.

“Memory lane ….So funny how I feel absolutely nothing watching this video. Lucky it feels good to write about you again after 12 years. 2009 5th December. It’s been 12 years of my divorce. You might be wondering why I am posting this after a long long time, I am posting because I want to show you how the men who hit women look like, they don’t always look like osinachis husband, they come in different package.”

She said her experience influenced her decision to become a relationship expert, using her platform to speak against domestic violence and gender-based violence.

Blessing CEO now has two boys – Darel Lucky Okoh and Bryan DGreat.
