Winner of Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) season 4, Mercy Eke, has revealed that relationships in Biggie’s house, during the reality Tv show are the biggest scam.
The BBNaija star (Mercy), who explained why she was stuck with Ike during the reality show, noted that initially, she thought her relationship with her fellow housemate, Ike Onyeama, was original.
Mercy, who was romantically involved with Ike during the show, but surprisingly ended the affair after the show, shed light on it in a recent interview.
In her words: “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 said.
Spilling further, Mercy revealed that the reality show now has a new female winner, Phyna and she hopes the media attention will finally shift from her to Phyna.
On her Igbo accent, Mercy 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?”
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) recalls that Ike had broken silence over their break up, saying “I’ve been in a couple of relationships but this one (with Mercy) wasn’t it; having a relationship where people have a million opinions just isn’t it,” he lamented.”
Ike, however, said he is open to a new relationship only if the prospective partner would meet his standards.
“I will like to date a lady that is intelligent, pretty much independent and not so freaked about social media. I believe social media brings a lot of negative vibes from people when it comes to relationship,” he asserted.
