mercy eke eats amala

Video of the Big Brother Naija reality TV star, Mercy Eke, better known as Lambo trying amala for the first time has generated reactions from Nigerians.

The star who hails from the Eastern part of Nigeria has decided to try something different by opting for another Nigerian dish, Amala; predominant in the South Western part of Nigeria.

In a video shared, Mercy was spotted eating amala with a spoon and her reaction to the taste of the food was disappointing.

Some Nigerians have regarded her actions as a felony to the Nigerian food culture, stating eating the food with a spoon is already a disrespect. While some demanded to know the person that almost finished the food before she took over the remnants.
