Gold diggers are driving me crazy with marriage proposals

Ms Ebube Essien-Garrick is in trouble! Ever since she became the MTN aircraft promo winner of a whopping N64 million, her life has not been the same. Trust Nigerian men, most especially the jobless ones, they are all over her.

In a bid to partake of the largesse, they have bombarded Ebube with phone calls, SMS and emails demanding friendship, love, and wait for this, instant marriage! Right now, the student of Rivers State College of Health Science and Technology, Port Harcourt, who is yet to come to terms with her new status as a millionaire, has been crying to close friends and relatives about the pressure on her.

Hear Ebube: “The pressure is driving me crazy. I keep getting crazy messages from guys who declare their love for me. Some say they want to marry me, others declare their undying love. Since I won this money, my life has not been the same.

Some people are even calling my parents and telling them not to worry that they already have a special husband for me. “When I am ready for marriage, I would not go for anyone who is interested in my money. I know what love is. If anyone is coming because of my money, I promise the person that he will not get a dime because I will make sure he doesn’t.”

Meanwhile, Ebube has decided to switch off her phone if this will safe her from the deluge of romantic calls and texts messages coming from gold diggers.

    Don’t mind them my friend, they are all interested in your money. Some of them are ritualist and kidnappers.

      So you have been brainwashed into believing that MTN actually gave someone 64 million Naira? IFor your information, that girl in the photo is not a Nigerian and her name is a joke. This is what we call marketing strategy.

    This is stale news. How are we sure that this is not an MTN scam.

    Your aeroplane price has made you beautiful, congratulation

  12. canicus November 23, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    Her name makes me wonder which part of Nigeria is she from bcos its a combination of Ebube(Igbo) Essien(Calabar/Akwa-ibom)-Garrick(English) and she is still single.
    Is this real from MTN?
    This is a country where ANYTHING can happen, it WILL happen and NOTHING will happen.

  13. hopehephzibah November 23, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    The money if real is not for marriage issues. Make judicious use of the money before it fly away, know you that it does not stay with a careless user. If u need a man to be yours, there is a man who have being there for u before now, so continue with him, for his prayers for u may v contributed to ur new status

  14. uche November 23, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Jealousy and inferiority complex will kill some men cos of this. They cannot face reality. It is normal for a men to look for her, tell me who don’t want to associate with good things . O girl enjoy ur money and remain focus if the story is true. .

    Thanks to mtn ng 4 their wonderful contributions in d lives of many nigerians. when God blessed others u need 2 appreciate so that God can bless u too. Ebube congratulations.just be wise.

  24. okpala November 23, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    @ Canicus your comment is worthy to be given an indept analysis if these bloggers here are deep thinkers. A clever guy coined these names together to keep the masses floating without asking reasonable question of the true identity of the winner in question . Absolutely funny indeed about the whole set-up. If you and I are doubting Thomases, why is our Legislative Arm of Government in recent time planning to ban Telephone Adverts and like wise.? I can smell a rat but time shall tell . In a computer Age anything is possible folks, such as imposing a Ghanian girl with Igbo, Efik, and Ijaw names coined . Open your eyes .

  25. Kayce November 23, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    Mtn stunt. U cant decive us. Who can testify about the girl and the mtn gift.

  26. Mena Otobo-Martins November 23, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    I dont see anything wrong if some men what to marry u because of the money after all most women go after men who have money. Why do you think we have corruption in Nigeria? Part of it is because of the demand of women on men. They want the men to buy them jeeps, mansion, fly them shopping in London. New York, Dubai etc. Is there a Nigeria and indeed an African woman you take out who wants to pay for herself like obtained in the West? No not even if they have more money than the man. They mostly want the man to pay.

    Therefore its time for men to go after you too and like somebody just said you can decide not to answer a call or read a text if you dont know from whom it has come. Full stop. And again are u sure you have not abandoned your long suffering boyfriend because you have become a rich girl? That is what most women will do anyway so I wont be surprised.

  27. Banji-F November 23, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    I do not trsust MTM and etisalat to give out this huge amt. I smell foul play

    I beg look very well before you jump ooh,many of them are out to take your money and get out when they get what they want.That is how they were doing when news of Funke Akindele came out that she was looking for husband then,many of such gold diggers were making proposals just because she was making it.THOSE GUYS ARE TRUELY GOLD DIGGERS THAT WANT TO REAP WHERE THEY DID NOT PLANT.

  43. E.Frank November 26, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Am not in surport 4any man callin a woman just cus she has bcom rich, afteral tru marriage is not based on esses money,&gain even if d whole tin is tru: must she tel d world dat men’re callin her? Girls of nawadays wey deir eyes dey penetrate pucket wt a lot of tricks of gemtin money 4rm men. Just d oda dey 1of d nigerian footballers had his wedin by mid-nite cus of how gils has bn flockin at him 4marriage &now dis 1 want make mouth.

  44. Ken November 27, 2012 at 2:03 am

    i think what Ebube need now is good adviser on how to invest the money wisely so that her future will be well secured or else will become poor in the next 5 years because many people has made more than that amount in the past and they are nowhere today……. so ebube should know how to invest wisely and also help the federal government by creating some job opportunities to her friends and close ones through her investment….. i wish u good luck my dear……… 64million is a big money to those that did not have it neither have the hope of having it…… but is also a small money to those that have the cash or know how to make the money………. 64 million Naira is just for 9 bags of Brazilian Drug market prize in Nigeria and 2 bag market prize in America and 1 and half bag market prize in China……. therefore, the money is a small money and the girl should not insult guys because of the little money she got

  45. Nduka November 27, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    @Ken i suspect you oooo

  46. mba November 27, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    but u ugly my dear, even with that 64m, i gat nothing to do with u.

  47. prince November 28, 2012 at 7:40 am

    Ebube be more reasonable and stop telling public your storries, i think this should be personal , remember this can also push men away from you if ur still single , i thnk what you could have done is to ignor them since you knew that they are fake and go ahead with your life i wish you good luck

  48. achike November 28, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Ebube, where is that aircraft and pilot? or are you one of them that trick us everyday as winners of 419 promos by service providers.

  49. kelly November 30, 2012 at 6:02 am

    @Ken, i cant stop laughing . it seems you are indirectly into the business because you got it right.

  50. Hacker November 30, 2012 at 4:06 pm
