Mercy Eke, an ex-Big Brother Naija winner, recently spoke out in an emotional interview about the public reaction to her comeback to the Big Brother Naija All-Stars show. Mercy Eke’s return to Big Brother, which she previously participated in in 2019, has been welcomed with mixed emotions.
Her decision to return to Big Brother was both exhilarating for her and for her followers. However, she quickly encountered a lot of anger and negativity. The public’s reaction to her involvement in the All-Stars edition, as well as that of her fellow housemate, appeared to have taken an unanticipated turn, hurting both her mental health and her interactions within the house.
The negative reception faced by Mercy led to misunderstandings and strained relationships with other participants. Both fellow housemates’ perceptions have also contributed to her feeling isolated and betrayed.
Mercy reveals that her biggest crime was wanting more for herself. She tearfully and emotionally expressed that she did not understand the hate people had towards her because she was not the only ex-winner present in the house.
Ugochi: “I am so glad that she spoke up about her struggles. It takes a lot of courage to open up about the challenges faced in the public eye. Let’s show her our support and remind her that she is strong and resilient. Sending love and positivity her way!”
Pharmc12: “I’ve been a fan of Mercia since her first appearance on Big Brother. It’s sad to see the negativity she’s been facing. Mercy, stay strong! We’re behind you all the way.”
Critic101: “Sorry, but Mercia really needs to toughen up. She chose to be in the spotlight, so it comes with the territory. Abeg Abeg If she can’t handle it, then why did she come back? It’s just part of the game.”
Destinyps1: “I had high hopes for het return, but She needs to stop playing the victim. Show has ended”
