The winner of the Big Brother Naija 2019 Mercy was greatly overwhelmed as her name was called as the winner of the grand prize of the show worth N60 million Naira. The prize also includes a brand new car.
Mercy aka Lamborghini had always been a strong contender in the Big Brother 2019 season 4 house. In fact, she was one of the most competitive housemates.
She almost won a car in the house when one of the BBNaija 2019 show sponsor IVM motors sponsored a contest where the winner went home with a car.
The competition was very fierce but Kaffi eventually won the brand new car with Mercy coming third.
Who Won Big Brother Naija 2019 season 4?
As the show went on, it became obvious that Mercy and Tacha (the 2019 BBNaija housemate who was later disqualified) were the strongest ladies in the show.
Tacha and Mercy, however, had a heated argument which almost led to a fight. The fight went viral on the internet and eventually, the two housemates involved got penalties from Big Brother.
For Mercy, her consequence was two warning strikes while the famous Tacha immediately got disqualified.
Big Brother had said that Tacha had been warned on several occasions even after she received two strikes for being unruly and disregarding the Big Brother rules.
With Tacha’s disqualification, it became easier for Mercy to win the show being the last girl standing among the five four other housemates – Frodd, Omashola, Mike and Sheyi.
Mercy received many Nigerian celebrities’ support who clamoured for votes for her. One of them was Laura Ikeji, the social media influencer, author and mum.
In the last week of the show, Mercy Ike, the winner of Big Brother Naija 2019 became notorious for ‘twerking’ unnecessarily in the house which some viewers found annoying.
However, with the result of the votes, it is obvious that Nigerians heavily supported Mercy, making her the winner of the BBN 2019.
Some of the top Nigerian musicians that performed at the Big Brother Sunday night grand Finale were Tiwa Savage, M.I and Patoranking.
