Reality star Mercy Eke has addressed the incessant comments about her physical appearance with a special message which reveals her next few body goals.
The Big Brother Naija 2019 winner, whose enviable physique attracted her a fandom that adored her in the house, had in the past displayed her body with reckless abandon.
During her time in the BBNaija house, Mercy was a highlight of the show and was known for her irrevocable dress sense. The parties, game nights, and pre-planned activities have always been an avenue for her to put her sculpted body on showcase.
It further brought conversations alongside speculations that she went under the knife, with different camps throwing fuel to the debate on social media.
CANDIID ONLINE recalls that Mercy admitted in a previous episode about plans on getting married.
She told her sister that she was not under any pressure to get married and she was going to do that when she was ready to do so.
She further stated that she has more time to enjoy her life and make the best out of her spinsterhood before she says “I do”. “I am not under pressure to get married, but I will like to get married before I am 30. I have three more years” Mercy said.
This came on the heels of a live chat she had shared that people doubt the validity of her relationship with her co-star Ike.
“People still doubt it because it’s too real. They don’t believe in anything they don’t know. They don’t believe in our kind of relationship, love, or whatever you may call it.
“They don’t believe that someone like me and someone like Ike can be together, can do things, can pop, am not trying to prove any point but we are in love with each other,” she said.
The chat about Ike came after an emotional reveal where she shared that “My mom told me that, when she was carrying me, there was this aunt of mine, my dad’s cousin, who came and asked her, ‘Are you still pregnant after all these kids you have?” she said.
“That really got my mom trying to abort me, when she told me that, I had told myself that I had to make it, whatever it took to be somebody. I had to make her proud somehow for what she did for me” she concluded.
In a clip that has now gone viral, Mercy revealed in her “What’s next with Mercy and Ike” reality TV show that she doesn’t feel uncomfortable when people make statements about her body.
According to her people who still insist that she has, silicon do not know the difference between plastic surgery and liposuction. She expresses that the problem there is ignorance and that most people don’t know and they don’t care to.
Mercy said;“I don’t feel comfortable anytime people say she has silicon, but I think the problem is Ignorance because they are very very…. They don’t know the difference between silicon and liposuction.
They just jam the whole thing together, everybody is silicon, so but it is what it is. It doesn’t get to me because I’m still going to enhance my body if I want to. I’m even thinking of touching my lips, do you like it, I want it to look bigger.”
It would be recalled that in May, the media-preneur floated her real estate company dubbed Lambo homes, in her announcement she disclosed how much of a dream come true it was for her.
“One of my biggest aspirations and life goals has been to own a real estate investment in Nigeria and that is why I ended the last decade with the purchase of my own home” she excitedly wrote.
Prior to the streak of achievements, Mercy had flaunted a newly acquired Mercedes Benz SUV worth N20 million.
Although she did not make a formal announcement on her page, pictures surfaced online with her in front of a new white car and her fellow reality star, Frodd.
