BBNaija: Mike receives N1m cash prize from Lipton Ice Tea

2019 Big Brother Naija [BBNaija] finalist, Mike Edwards, has collected the N1m cash prize he won as the winner of ‘Lipton Ice Tea’ while in the house.

The 28-year-old also won a honeymoon trip to Mauritius from the company.

WuzupNigeria reports that Mike’s wife, Perri Shakes-Drayton, also got the sum of #500,000 to Chop Beta Life as well.

Recall that Mike, a British champion, had, in 2018, appealed to the International Association of Athletics Federations [IAAF] to allow him to represent Nigeria at the Commonwealth Games.

The 27-year-old arrived on the Gold Coast as part of the Nigerian team but is ineligible to compete because he represented Britain at the European Junior Championships in 2009.

Edwards, who was born in Manchester but has a Nigerian mother and citizenship, has protested against his situation with a home-made sign in the athletes’ village.
