Nollywood actor Yul Edochie, who is reckoned for being vocal about trending issues on social media, has taken to Twitter to defend Big Brother Naija season 4 winner, Mercy Eke against cyberbullying.
His defense is coming after a Nigerian vlogger, Oluwa-Tosin Silverdam, called out the Imo state born reality star, for being excessively ‘local’ and ‘annoying’ in nature.
Tosin slammed the ex-BBNaija housemate alongside some other reality stars like Khloe, Tuoyo, Ifu Ennada, and Gifty.“Her fans keep attacking me on social media but still, yet I don’t like her, she’s too annoyingly local. She’s too mgbeke feeling funky. I said what I said”. Tosin said as he dragged Mercy.
This is not a first attempt to smear the character and person of the widely acclaimed BBNaija winner as it has been established amongst Mercy and her rival Tacha’s camp. Both personalities have attracted unrivaled hate from their fandoms going at each other. Hence, at every point in time, there’s somebody or something that is attacking one of either personality.
CANDIID ONLINE recalls that in September 2019 Mercy and Tacha went physical and served what was regarded as the most groundbreaking watch in the history of Nigerian reality tv show. The fight earned Tacha her exit and saw Mercy to being crowned the first female winner of the Big Brother Naija show.
Yul Edochie immediately responded in Mercy’s defense, saying white people have messed up our brains to make us see our own ways as local. He also said mercy is not local, that she is simply Nigerian or Biafran.
“White people messed up our brains making us see our own ways as local. C. Ronaldo speaks English with a Portuguese accent, have you called him local? Many brains need to be formatted in this country. We no be Oyibo.”Mercy Eke is not local, she is simply Nigerian or Biafran.” He tweeted.
