Why I didn’t win Big Brother Naija for second time – Mercy Eke

Mercy Eke, a Big Brother Naija reality star, has explained why she did not win the competition a second time.

After finishing as the runner-up in the 2023 all-star edition, Eke fell to 22-year-old Ilebaye, who had won the “Pepper Dem” season in 2019.

However, speaking in a recent episode of Celebrity Quickies posted on comedian AY’s YouTube page, Eke said she didn’t win the show for the second round 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.”
