Mercy Eke

Winner of Big Brother Naija Pepper Dem, Season 4, Mercy Eke has finally reacted to netizens who mock her accent whenever she speaks.

During a discussion show titled Teawithtaypod, the multi-brand ambassador revealed why she speaks with an accent which is not far fetched from her childhood.

Mercy Eke claimed she had lived in Owerri for most of her life, and she only moved to Lagos in 2016.

Mercy Eke reiterated that she is confident in herself and pointed out the world-famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo whom people adore, although he speaks English with an accent.

“I left Owerri in 2016. When they talk about my Igbo accent, I look at them thinking how do you want me to speak. I schooled in Owerri, primary and secondary. Only service took me away from there…”

Following this development, Nigerians took to the internet to support Mercy Eke’s point about her accent, claiming that ‘accent isn’t a crime.’

Kemi Filani recalls that Mercy Eke and Tacha disappointed their haters by thrashing the long time beef between them.

In a programme with famous on-air personality Toke Makinwa, the duo addressed the issues that had been ragging between them for over two years.

Sitting next to each other, Mercy Eke and Tacha claim they don’t have to satisfy their fans by doing what is expected of them, as many derive joy whenever they are at loggerheads.

“We are tired of fighting. These people abeg if you want to fight go and fight yourself”
