Why I lost BBNaija All-Stars to Ilebaye – Mercy Eke

Mercy Eke

Big Brother Naija reality star Mercy Eke has given reasons why she lost the all-stars edition of the show to Ilebaye.

Mercy explained why she did not win in a recent episode of Celebrity Quickies posted on comedian AY’s YouTube page.

The actress said she said she did not win the show for the second time because people “were allergic to winners.”

She said, “The first time, I went into the Big Brother House, it was all cute, lovely people. I played the game and I won the show. And I thought it was all cute, then I went back for the second time, and I found out that people were allergic to winners.

“They were like, ‘She had that, she can’t have it again. She has this, she can’t have it again.’ That’s why I did not win for the second time because they are allergic to winners. They were like, ‘She is already rich, give others a chance.’

“This second experience, I loved it. I will not even take anything away from it because it made me see people for who they truly are. It can only be God’s doing because without this second experience I would not know a lot of things. I didn’t know that it is a crime to want to win again. But anyways, I am still a winner.”

Ilebaye has been presented with the N120 million grand prize after winning the show in October 2023.

Mercy Eke was the runner-up with Cee-C coming third.

The other finalists in order of eviction are Cross, Pere and Adekunle.
