What attracted me to Mercy Eke – Pere

Pere of Big Brother Naija

Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) star Pere Egbi has revealed some things that attracted him to his colleague Mercy Eke.

The 38-year-old said during a SabiRadio interview released on YouTube on Sunday that he noticed her growth from the ‘Pepper Dem’ season which she won.

“From the small knowledge that I had about Mercy from her previous season and what I saw my first two weeks being in the house with her was a woman who had grown, there was some growth. So that caught my attention,” he said.

He also said that her spirituality attracted him, recounting the time he saw her reading a Bible during the recently-concluded BBNaija All-Stars edition.

“One day I was going into the blue room to do something and I looked. On the bed was a Bible, a small Bible. I was like ‘Okay, who’s on this bed?’ It’s Mercy’s bed, the bed was empty, I went away. That night I took a peek in the blue room, there she was reading her Bible,” he said.

Pere and Mercy were both finalists in the All-Stars edition.

The couple displayed several intimate moments in the course of the show.
