Mercy Eke, the first runner-up of the recently concluded BBNaija reality show, has clarified her earlier comments about having a wealthy boyfriend.
While in the Big Brother house, Mercy Eke shared that her partner offered her 120 million naira over three months if she chose not to participate in the show. She revealed that her boyfriend was possessively jealous and discouraged her from joining the competition, even going so far as to give her 120 million Naira to prevent her from participating. Despite his efforts, she chose to follow her dream.
However, in a recent interview with Toke Makinwa, Mercy Eke admitted that she had fabricated the story about having a wealthy lover. According to her, she formulated the story to discourage male housemates from pursuing romantic relationships with her because she wasn’t looking for a relationship at the time.
