Former Big Brother Naija winner Mercy Eke revealed that the show’s romantic relationships are both a scam and a strategy.
The first winner stated this during an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, while explaining why she had an affair with her ex-husband, Ike Onyema.
Remember, Mercy and Ike were a couple on the show, but their relationship didn’t last after the show, which disappointed many viewers.
Regarding her experience, Mercy points out that if she had known her fan base was so large, she would not have had a relationship with Ike.
Even when their relationship wasn’t working out, the reality TV star said she couldn’t leave Ike because of the money.
BBNaija Relationships is the biggest scam. It was original to me in the beginning. As a matter of fact, if I’d known I was a solid housemate and people loved me for who I was, I wouldn’t have bothered to get involved with Ike.
“I wouldn’t say it was a strategy, for me, we just flowed with it, but we had to put on a show even when we weren’t happy for people who aren’t even in a relationship. If it didn’t work out, you move on but in my case I couldn’t, I had to be there because of the money, Otherwise, I wouldn’t have the money.”
