'‘I sold corn and fuel while growing up’' – BBN star, Mercy Eke opens up at #NECLive8

BBN star, Mercy Eke has opened up on how she survived while growing up.

The ex-reality star made opened up during a close panel session at the 8th edition of the Nigerian Entertainment Conference (#NECLive8).

According to her, she sometimes gets really emotional when she looks back and see how far she has come in life adding that she has been through a lot to get here.

She said;

“Sometimes it gets me very emotional to see how far I’ve come from where I started, from selling corn to fuel, to a lot of other businesses I did before. I’m very proud of myself, and I know that there are a lot of people looking up to me.

I auditioned four times before I got into the Big Brother House, but somehow I won the show, and I won the hearts of Nigerians and Africans.

I work for everything I own today, maybe I’m not ‘blessed’ enough for people to just give me things for free. I can look back at my journey with pride, in spite of my rough childhood.

I grew up in a family of 6, but somehow I was able to complete my tertiary education. I’m very proud of myself, and I know that there are a lot of people looking up to me.

Where I am today is through my hard work. I didn’t just win and rest on my oars, because I know that my journey has just started.”
