Why I Lied About Dating A Billionaire — Mercy Eke




Former Big Brother Naija All Stars housemate, Mercy Eke, has opened up on the reason she lied about having a billionaire boyfriend.

It would be recalled that Mercy during her stay on the reality show claimed to be romantically involved with a billionaire lover who offered her the 120 million grand prize in three months if she didn’t participate in the show.

According to Mercy Eke, her partner was possessively jealous and advised her not to participate in the show.

However, speaking during an interview with popular media personality, Toke Makinwa on Tuesday, the reality star denied dating a billionaire, saying that she lied about having a rich boyfriend outside the big brother’s house.


Mercy further explained that she only said that to chase the male housemates away from her because she didn’t want a relationship.

I’m Sad Not All Housemates Congratulated Me – Ilebaye

Meanwhile, the winner of Big Brother Naija All-Stars season,  Ilebaye Odiniya, has expressed sadness that not all housemates congratulated her on her win.

According to her, it is normal for other housemates to be pissed about not winning the N120 million cash price, but it’s unfair that they aren’t rejoicing with the winner.


Naija News gathered that Ilebaye, in a recent interview with popular media personality Toke Makinwa said if she were in their shoes, she might be pissed too, but that won’t stop her from being happy for any other house, should they have won.

The reality star said not being congratulated by all the housemates makes her feel she is not worth the win, and it makes her sad.
