Following the trend of gifting cash to the last standing housemates by the winner, Mercy Eke, however turns down the tradition.
Mercy in a new media chat disclosed that she does not intend to share her ₦35 million prize money with any of her ex-housemates.
Recall that winner of the 2010 Big Brother Africa 3 (All-Stars), Uti Nwachukwu, revealed that he gave $5,000 each from his prize money to three of the top five housemates of that edition.
Mercy, however, says she wouldn’t do such.
When asked if she was going to do what Uti Nwachukwu did, Mercy said: “No way, it’s winner takes all.”
As the winner of Big Brother Naija 2019 grand finale prize, Mercy received prizes worth N60m. According to the organisers of the Big Brother Nigeria reality show, MultiChoice Nigeria, winner takes home a cash prize of N30million and a SUV from Innoson Motors.
