The first female winner of Big Brother Naija, or BBNaija as it’s popularly called her in Nigeria, has revealed her financial decision regarding her N30 prize money.

Mercy Eke is grateful to God
Mercy told Denzel that winning in the reality show is something more than an honor and she is grateful to God.
When Denzel asked her how she was going to do with her prize money, she replied that the money is still intact and it is now bigger than it was. Mercy added that she appreciates Heritage Bank for giving her advice on how to wisely handle such amount of money.
Mercy said that the money was a motivation for her because a lot of people think that she’s going to squander it by going around and partying, knowing that she likes to dress up and likes good things.
But she said, “As God may have it, that’s why I always use God.” She added, “So as God may have it, that money is somewhere and it’s bigger than what it was before.
Mercy is grateful for Heritage Bank, who is “proud” of her. She says it’s a new bank created for her to put her money. She concluded, “From what was there before and what is there right now, I know they must be really proud of me, yeah.”
