Congratulations @itsLaycon Winner @BBNaija Lockdown edition. More wins!! We look forward to seeing you in Y2021 as you #payyourtax
As expected, the tweet has drawn massive reactions online. See some reactions below;
@latijani: A responsible citizen should pay his tax.. The entire prize money will be shared among his team and he will bear the full tax responsibility in 2021. Someone had better advice the guy to start planning how he manages the money. The taxman’s eye is on the N85m!
