Former BBNaija winner, Mercy Eke gets candid on why she didn’t clinch victory for the second time in the All-Stars edition of the show.

It would be recalled that in 2019, Mercy emerged as the winner of the ‘Pepper Dem‘ season but faced defeat in the all-star edition, losing to 22-year-old Ilebaye in 2023, where she ended up as the runner-up.

In a recent interview on Celebrity Quickies featured on comedian AY’s YouTube channel, Mercy Eke expressed that she believes she didn’t secure victory during the BBNaija All-Stars because some people seemed to be “allergic to winners.”

In her words;

“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.”
