Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) season 4 winner, Mercy Eke, has rubbished claims by some critics that a man is responsible for her success.
In a video uploaded to her YouTube channel, the reality TV star said; “In this part of the world, people believe a man is behind the success of a woman, whether she is married or single.

I work hard for everything I own today. When people say a man is behind these things, I find it appalling. However, it does not get to me anymore because what else would one say? It only shows that my success is visible.”
Mercy also stated that the fear of failure makes her stronger, adding that though her life has changed, she sometimes forgets that she is a celebrity.
She said, “My biggest fear in life is failure. I don’t want to fail and go back to the streets. I don’t want to roast corn anymore. I just want to keep doing what I know how to do best. God has blessed me.

The fear of failure makes me stronger. I want to be a better person. I want today to be better than yesterday. That is why no matter what is thrown at me, I would never stop growing. I would never stop establishing myself and I would never stop dreaming.
“I worked hard for this fame and I won’t let the fame get to me. Sometimes, I even forget that I am a celebrity. I drive myself and do things a normal person does.”
