Mercy Eke, the ex-BBNaija housemate, has opened up on her emotional struggles during the All-Stars season. 


Speaking on the Hero Daniels podcast, Mercy said Nigerians showed “me pure hatred and wickedness” while on the show.

The reality star wondered why she received such treatment “just for trying to be more”. She said she only received “support from my fans”.

“Where I am right now, I am only halfway to where I want to be. But it is just… this last season, I started questioning myself. I feel like I am too ambitious. Is it a good thing for a woman to want more? People almost made me feel like I am too greedy. Most times when I talk to Biggie, that is what I ask him. In my head I start questioning myself ‘Do I want too much?’ Am I looking for too much? Wetin’ I get? I do not even have anything,” she said.


“People made it look like ‘let others be there’. I did not have any support apart from my fans. It is still in my head. And I am not lying because it is just pure hatred and wickedness that I witnessed. Just for trying to be more. Just for trying to push harder. And I thank God that I went back to the show because I did not know that is how people saw me. I just respect myself and package myself. Even when I have not eaten nobody will know. What did I do wrong? The only crime I committed was wanting more. And I ask again, is that a bad thing for a person to want more?

“Honestly, not everybody will support you. And people do not want you to grow more than them. People do not want you to be bigger than them. That is what it is.”

Mercy was the first runner-up at this year’s reality TV show. Ilebaye Odiniya, however, took home the grand prize of 120 million naira.
