The return of Mercy Eke, the winner of the ‘PepperDem’ edition of Big Brother Naija, to the ‘All-Stars’ Edition has been an exciting development for viewers.
However, her presence has not been without drama.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the controversies that have surrounded her online.
Age Fraud Allegations: Unveiling Mercy’s Real Age
During the electioneering period, Mercy Eke shared her Voters Card on social media, expressing her readiness for the 2023 general elections and urging her fans to collect their PVCs.
Despite covering her date of birth, a follower went the extra mile to dig up the details, revealing that Mercy’s real age was 32.
This created a buzz online, as just a few months earlier, she had celebrated her 29th birthday in a grand style.
Accusation of Destroying a Marriage
In 2021, Mercy Eke faced allegations of being involved in the breakup of the marriage of Super Eagles striker, Aaron Samuel.
It was claimed that their affair, which was supposed to be a one-night stand, continued until Samuel’s wife found out.
However, Mercy vehemently denied these accusations and warned against tarnishing her image.
The Mystery of Her Buttocks
During her time on the BBNaija ‘PepperDem’ edition, there were speculations about the authenticity of Mercy’s backside.
In an interview, when asked if she had undergone surgery for her body shape, she coyly responded that her bum could be real or not, and she was enjoying the rumors surrounding it.
Unapologetic About Her Accent
Mercy Eke has faced criticism for speaking with an Igbo accent.
However, she confidently asserts that she is proud of her accent. In an interview with media personality Taymesan in 2022, she explained that her upbringing in Owerri, the capital of Imo state, influenced her way of speaking.
The Alleged Romance with a Billionaire
One of the controversies that Mercy Eke has neither confirmed nor denied is her alleged romantic relationship with Nigerian billionaire oil magnate, Joseph Ezeokafor, popularly known as Jowizaza.
In 2021, they were spotted together on a trip to Marrakech, Morocco, trying to keep their relationship private, but pictures posted by Jowizaza raised suspicions.
While Mercy Eke continues to entertain viewers with her presence on the ‘All-Stars’ Edition of BBNaija, these controversies remind us that the reality TV star’s life is not without its share of drama and speculations in the online sphere.
