Mercy Eke, winner of the 2019 edition of the BBNaija reality TV show, recently opened up on how a fan made her lose millions of naira due to a failed deal with a champagne company.
According to Mercy, she was approached by the champagne brand that wanted her to sign a deal with them and also attend a party they wanted to organised and she obliged.
Mercy however said the deal went sour because of a nosy fan of the show.
Mercy told her fellow former housemates at BBNaija 2019 Reunion show that the fan in question made a phone call to one of the staff members of the champagne company to ask if it was true that the company recently signed Mercy.
However, the staff told the fan that Mercy had no deal with the company.
Upon getting wind of that information, the fan reported to have shared the answer on social media, making internet users troll Mercy.
In her words ;
“Immediately I saw that, I called Chief Priest and told him what was going on on the internet and we decided that if the company say they do not know me, me too do not know them.
“I told the company that if I was going to go ahead with the deal, they should release an official statement saying that they know me and to also apologize. My management made me return the money because they refused to apologize and the damage had been done.”
