Many have wondered why 26-year-old Mercy, one of the vivacious housemates in the ongoing Big Brother Naija TV reality show, has always emphasized the fact that she is in the game for fame.

Mercy recently explained to another housemate why she has been bent on becoming famous and what triggered it.

According to the BBN housemate, she found out that her footballer boyfriend, Emenike, was getting married to ex-beauty queen, Iheoma, while they were still dating.

She discovered that he was getting married via social media and when she wanted to contact him, she found out that he had blocked her on all social media platforms.

Mercy said the footballer loved her but she was of the opinion that the fact that she was a 'nobody' at the time was what influenced his decision to dump her for someone famous, adding that the incident made her even more determined to become a celebrity that would keep popping up on his timeline whenever he opens his phone.

She said she wasn't sure how to achieve her aim of becoming a celebrity at the time, but she found her way into the Big Brother house, which no doubt has put her on the path to fame and success as a celebrity.

Unknown to Mercy, she wasn't the only one in a relationship with the footballer before he proceeded to tie the knot with the ex-beauty queen, while blocking all other girls on social media.
