Mercy Eke has stunned fans with the revelation that her mother tried to abort her when she was pregnant.
The BBNaija winner made this known during the premiere of her joint reality TV show with former contestant Ike.
Mercy said that her mother went through a lot during her pregnancy due to pressure from family members.
“My mom told me that when she was carrying me, there was this aunt of mine, my dad’s cousin, who came and asked her, ‘Are you still pregnant after all these kids you have?’
That really got my mom trying to abort me. My mom told me that what she did was that when she goes to the farm, she would climb a tree and intentionally fall from there to see if she could get rid of me.
When she told me that, I told myself that I had to make it, whatever it took to be somebody. I had to make her proud somehow for what she did for me.”
Mercy Eke was born on September 29, 1993. She won the Big Brother Naija reality TV show in October 2019, the first female to do so.
She is also an actress, entrepreneur and video vixen who received the Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Award for Best Dressed Female on March 14, 2020.
