‘You played a great game’, Mercy Eke congratulates Ilebaye
Big Brother Naija All-Stars housemate, Mercy Eke, has released her first official statement on her experience and stay in the just concluded Big Brother Naija reality show.
The Nation reported on Sunday, October 1, that Ilebaye emerged as the winner of the All Stars show, beating Mercy Eke, Ceec, Pere, Cross, and Adekunle to win the title.
