Big Brother Naija All Stars runner-up, Mercy Eke has said her relationship with colleague, White Money on the reality show was a strategy.
She said herself and White Money had an agreement at the beginning of the show to stick together as past winners of their respective seasons.
Speaking in an interview with BBNaija host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Mercy clarified that her relationship with the businessman in Biggie’s house wasn’t romantic.
She, however, added that she was unsure if White Money started developing feelings for her during their strategic alliance on the show.
Mercy said; “Me and White Money’s relationship was just an alliance. In the first week, he already told me that we would be a target in the House so we should stick by each other.
“He said it was only he and I that were different in the House. But I was still myself. I was still trying to have fun. But I don’t know if he started developing feelings inside. It wasn’t anything. It was just an alliance. No feelings there at all. It was just a game.”
The reality star’s latest comment contravenes her earlier position that he was the only one she would love to show true love to. She had said White Money deserves her love more than Kiddwaya and Pere, the other two guys she has had on-screen romance with.
Speaking with Cross and Pere, the ‘Pepper Dem’ winner expressed doubts that her relationship with her mystery boyfriend will continue when she leaves the house.
Cross said: If your boyfriend has left you that means it is between WhiteMoney and Pere.
Mercy replied: It is between only White Money, Pere no dey. Then Pere said: White Money does not stand a chance.
Mercy continued: White Money will take care of me. His own was seamless, I could feel it, I felt it, that is the thing. I was doing some bad things…even the first time I kissed Kidd he let it go, and they said I kissed Pere, I looked at White Money and I was like “me self what is doing me”, he still held me down.
He did not judge me and he still believes in us and that is it for me. If it is other guys they would have gone. I think he deserves my love and I am ready to show him a part of me I did not show him because we were in this house.
