Speaking for the first time since the show ended on Sunday, via a video clip, Debbie said she would ordinarily choose the love she got from Nigerians ahead of the N25 million prize.
She said, "If I were to choose between money and your love for me, I will choose your love because your love is priceless.
"The love I feel is overwhelming and I can't help the emotions. We are the risers and nothing can stop us.
"The energy I have as a result of your love is incredible and I can't wait to bless your beautiful hearts with my music and more entertainment.
"Honestly when I think of how you went all out for me, my heart melts. God bless you! God will expand you! God will establish you! You will experience "rising" like never before. I truly love you all. God bless all the citizens of the "Risers Nation."
