Bbnaija season 4 winner, Mercy Eke, revealed an intriguing fact regarding the relationships on the reality show.
In a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, Mercy, who was romantically involved with her fellow housemate Ike Onyeama during the show but unexpectedly ended the affair after the show, opened up about it.
She said: “BBNaija relationships are the biggest scam, it was even original for me initially, as a matter of fact, if I had known that I was a strong housemate and that people loved me for me, I wouldn’t have bothered getting involved with him.
I wouldn’t say it was a strategy, for me, we flowed with it but we had to put up a show even when not happy for people who aren’t even in relationships. If it is not working out, you move but in my case I couldn’t, I had to be there cos of money, otherwise, I won’t have my complete money.”
Mercy spilled more, saying that Phyna, a new female winner of the reality competition, was the reason she was hoping the media’s focus would finally switch from her to Phyna.
Speaking on her Igbo accent, she said: “I schooled in Owerri, primary and secondary. It was only the National Youth Service that made me leave Owerri. How do they expect me to speak?”
