Mercy Eke, the first runner-up in the recently concluded BBNaija All-Stars show, has confessed to fabricating claims about having a billionaire boyfriend. This admission came to light during a recent interview.
During their time in the Biggie’s house, the winner of the ‘Pepper Dem’ edition initially stated that her boyfriend had offered her 120 million Naira within 3 months if she refrained from participating in the show. Mercy Eke mentioned that her boyfriend was possessive and advised her against a second stint on the show.
She went on to share that he had offered her the 120 million Naira grand prize to dissuade her from participating, but she turned down the offer.
However, during an interview with media personality Toke Makinwa, Mercy Eke recanted her previous claims, admitting that she had lied about having a billionaire boyfriend. She clarified that she had made up the story to deter male housemates from pursuing a relationship with her, as she wanted to avoid entanglements.
