Mercy was dragged in 2019 after she claimed that she was too busy to sit at home and watch the BBN show. She also said that she doesn’t know any of the housemates and so nobody can force her to support or watch them. Many found this funny and ridiculous because she was a product of the same show. Nigerians reacted by asking if those who voted are at the time were jobless.
She was also dragged earlier this year when she posted a video of two of her expensive bags and said that the bags were more popular than many Nigerians. Instagram users reacted to her video by reminding her that she came from a poor background. Some other persons also attacked her for her accent which called “Igbo voice”.
The reality tv star has also been dragged for spraying so much money at a wedding. I guess it’s safe to say being a star or celebrity in Nigeria comes with a lot of dragging.
While in the BBN house, Mercy was romantically linked with a fellow housemate on the show by name, Ike Onyeama whom she met on the show. Even after the show, the two of them were an item. However, the relationship was said to have hit the rock last year. Mercy put it out herself when she put a post insinuating she was no longer in a relationship with Ike. On another hand, Ike also confirmed the breakup by saying he was single.
Shortly after, Mercy gave a hint that she was married when she responded to a fan who asked “they said you are married, is it true”? However, not much is known about the man to whom she is married at the moment.
