After emerging the first female to win the Big Brother Naija show, Mercy Eke says her new status won’t affect her relationship with a fellow housemate, Ike Onyema.
Mercy who confirmed being in love with Ike before being announced the winner of the show said things will continue to go on smoothly between the two who were fond of each other in the House.
Speaking with Sunday Scoop, Mercy ‘Lambo’ said she intends not to explore other options despite being now richer than Ike.
“I was single before going into the House. But now, you should expect love and friendship (between me and Ike). We would work as partners. Money has nothing to do with the love we share. Money has nothing to do with our relationship; it won’t affect us,” she said.
The queen of the highlight speaks highly of Ike, describing him as a special person. While admitting that her love for Ike is beyond what she could comprehend, she said every girl in the House liked him too.
“I realised that I had feelings for him about the fifth week in the house,” she revealed.
Mercy also said flaunted her body while in the House because she was confident in her own skin, adding that every woman should be at peace with their body.
“I was comfortable with my body and that was it for me.”
Next line of action for Mercy
When asked her next level of focus, the graduate of Imo State University revealed that her first duty is to establish her clothing brand.
“But, I want to take things slowly; I am not trying to rush. The immediate thing is for me to nurture my clothing brand and after that, any other thing can follow,” she noted.
Mercy won the grand prize of N60m of the show with over 42 percent votes. She is currently on a media tour with the last five; Seyi, Mike, Frodd, and Omashola.
