Mercy Eke, BBN Pepper Dem winner, is presently receiving heat after she released a video about fans pressuring her to support at least one housemate. Since the beginning of the 2020 Lockdown edition, many people have chosen sides, but it seems Mercy isn’t ready to pick a side yet.
In the video, she expressed her annoyance at being barraged with comments from fans, asking her to choose at least one person she’s supporting. She said she would not be bullied into supporting a housemate. She revealed that she doesn’t have time to sit and watch the show, and so she doesn’t know the housemates well enough. She also said it’s just a game, and the housemates should be themselves.
She also affirmed that she would follow the show and decide who to support, when she has time on her hands. Considering the fact that Mercy became famous and successful through the BBNaija platform, her utterances were seen as offensive, and that she has forgotten where she came from.
Meanwhile, it seems things are not going so well in the house as more relationships are breaking up, as Dorathy and Ozo joins the train. The duo had been friends right from their first week in the house, and grew very close, until Ozo’s feelings for Nengi came into play.
Dorothy, however, argues that her feelings for Ozo is nothing and that she’s just being protective of him. But the issue has been a big deal in the house. It seems Dorathy does not want to be caught in the middle, and so, she decided to move away from him.
