In related news, Mercy Eke, has opined that relationships produced from the reality TV show are a big scam.
She stated this in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, while revisiting her failed relationship with her co-star, Ike Onyema.
Recall that the couple, who met during the BBNaija 2019 edition, started dating on the show and continued till the show ended.
They even had a reality TV show called “Mercy & Eke” where they documented their love life and marriage plans. Sadly, their relationship hit the rocks in 2020.
Speaking in the recent interview, Mercy Eke said she stayed with Ike because of the money involved otherwise she would have dumped him.
According to Mercy, she genuinely liked Ike at first but at some point, their relationship became performative and was majorly for the camera.
She said if she knew that she was a strong housemate during the show, she wouldn’t have dated Ike because their relationship was not working.
“BBNaija relationships are the biggest scam, it was even original for me initially, as a matter of fact, if I had known that I was a strong housemate and that people loved me for me, I wouldn’t have bothered getting involved with him.
I wouldn’t say it was a strategy, for me, we flowed with it but we had to put up a show even when not happy for people who aren’t even in relationships. If it is not working out, you move but in my case I couldn’t, I had to be there cos of money, otherwise, I won’t have my complete money.”
