In an interview with The Sun, Mercy talks about her days in the Big Brother House, love life and the controversies dogging her big bum.
On why she participated on Big Brother Naija reality show, she said: “It’s simply because of my personality. I auditioned four times and God ordained it after the fifth time, and here I am as the winner.The first time I watched the show, I fell in love with it and ever since I had wanted to be an housemate. For countless times, they said ‘no’ to me but I persisted till the last time that I was selected at the audition in Warri, Delta State.”
The special feature that made her got picked to enter the Big Brother House: ” Nothing. I remained myself, and like I said earlier, God had ordained it that this will be my time. To be honest, I never believed I will win the show.”
On her love for Ike and the strategy: ” Falling in love in the House didn’t play a major role in your winning the show. No. In the first place, I never really wanted a relationship. I came in to play the game all by myself.”
On present relationship with Tacha : “We are friends. While we were in the House, what happened just happened. I don’t bear grudges against anyone. Tacha and I are friends and I don’t think there is any need for make-up when we remain friends.
Tacha has congratulated me. Look, friends fight, family fights. Things happen and as human you just show the anger side of your life and later you come back to your senses. That Tacha and I had issue in the House doesn’t change the fact that we are still friends. People would soon see us together. Trust me, you guys would soon see us together.”
On her N5m bum bum: ” I never said I did surgery on my bum and it cost you N5 million. My Bumbum is real. This interview is getting too personal. But I won’t tell you whether my bum is real or not. People are free to have their opinion about my bum. Let the rumour continue, I am actually enjoying it.”
