Ex BBNaija winner, Mercy Eke has come out to react to the drama surrounding her real age.

Recall that the reality star took to Twitter over the weekend to share her voter’s card while calling on Nigerians to collect theirs.

Mercy covered her age in the PVC but left her VIN and Twitter users used this information to search for her details on the INEC website, which showed that her real age is 32 years old.

A follower recently wrote, “But you’re close to 40 yrs old why you dey lie for us,”

Mercy replied sarcastically, “I’m actually 52.”

Ebuka, the most popular housemate for several weeks into the show and widely believed to emerge the winner was the seventh housemate to be evicted; many viewers blame the Joe’s Fan Club (JFC) for his eviction. Joe himself was soon evicted from the show.

Big Brother added another twist to the game on day 79 by cancelling the day’s scheduled nominations and making the housemates believe they will instead be evicted based on their performances on assigned tasks while in reality no more evictions were held and viewers began voting for the winner who turned out to be 26-year-old Katung Aduwak.
