A Nigerian lady has taken to Twitter to call out Big Brother Naija star, Mercy Eke, accusing her of deceiving Nigerians to win the ‘pepperdem’ edition of the reality TV show.

Mercy was a housemate on the 2019 season of Big Brother Naija, and she made history by becoming the first female winner.

However, a Twitter user identified as Chisom has accused Mercy Eke of lying and claiming to be poor on the show in order to gain sympathy from viewers.

According to her, she discovered Mercy wasn’t poor as she had claimed on the show, after she attended Mery Eke’s father’s funeral in Imo state yesterday, April 27.

Chisom said she realized Mercy had built a magnificent building in her hometown way before she went on the show.

“Forget about Yul Edochie ,lets talk about how Mercy Eke deceived us to vote for her to win #BBNaija.Tell me about “we are poor, my brothers couldn’t go to school,I sold fuel and corn” . Go to her father’s compound and see d house she built before Bbnaija. Her village people..

In Egbu Owerri told me yesterday that she has been living large before Bbnaija even her mother had benz then. So, where is being poor and the only source of income topic came from? Everybody voted for her bc they had pity on her . See her father’s burial, talk of the town.

See people that attended from Owerri, “prominent people “. So Mercy Eke, when and how were you poor ? You sold cold Zobo to us and we bought it. Liar! I was at the burial yesterday and people told me how rich you were before bbnaija. Nigerians should learn how to vote right

Stop voting out of pity,Bbnaija winners should be deserving not manipulating. That was how White Money came with cooking scope. Next year Big Brother Naija, please don’t vote for pity . Don’t be manipulated! Vote the person that deserve it . Mercy Eke has opened my eyes”, she tweeted.
