Mercy Eke, the winner of Big Brother Naija’s ‘LockDown’ edition, has sparked online reactions following the premiere of her new reality TV show ‘Mercy What Next?’ on DSTV.
Mercy Eke likely corrected an impression about food options for Lagos residents in the short video that has been making the rounds on social media.
You have to have your afang soup, she says, but I have to have the pepper soup, and I say, no, you don’t do that, that’s not how we roll in Lagos.
However, many people were unable to understand what she was saying because of her accent.
This is not the first time Mercy Eke has been criticized for always faking her accent but has continued to act unbothered about it.
As expected, many social media users knocked Mercy Eke over the video and urged her to always express herself without faking any accent to avoid criticisms.
