Nigerian media personality, actress, video vixen and current housemate of the Big Brother Naija All Stars, Mercy Eke has revealed that her lover offered her N120 million, the equivalent of the grand prize for the reality show—as an inducement to keep off the reality show, but she declined.
Mercy said in a conversation with Princess Francis, a fellow BBNaija All Stars housemate on Thursday that her lover had offered to give her the money within three months, but she had declined the offer since her goal was to compete, and she wasn’t ready to “give up.”
“My boyfriend told me that he will give me 120 million in three months, that I shouldn’t go for All Stars but I said no, I want this. I came here and as I have come here now, one naira I no go get,” she lamented.
Mercy Eke became the first woman to ever win the most coveted prize at the end of Big Brother Naija’s fourth season in 2019, taking home the N60 million grand prize.
She is currently vying with other housemates including Cee Cee, Kiddwaya, Frodd, Pere, Angel, Neo, Alex, and Tolanibaj, who all have an equal desire for the prize
The other housemates are Cross, Seyi, Uriel, Doyin, Princess, Whitemoney, Soma, Ike, Ilebaye, Venita and Adekunle
