During the BBNaija Reunion Show that took place on Tuesday, June 23, Pepper Dem winner Mercy Eke spoke about her controversial moment with the champagne brand, Moet.
Recall the reality star announced her deal with the champagne brand a few months after she won the BBNaija competition. She stated that they had already paid her the agreed amount; even before she signed the official contract.
According to Mercy Eke, she bagged the deal on Wednesday; and she was also supposed to start the activation of the deal on Thursday which was the second day.
In her statement, she claimed that an anonymous fan reached out to one of the staff members of the champagne company to ask if it was true that the company really signed Mercy; and if it was true that she would be attending the upcoming party organised by the company.
Unfortunately, the company worker called, told the fan that Mercy had no deal with the company; and would also not be attending the said party.
After the call, the fan was reported to post the information given on the internet; likewise making internet users troll Mercy.
According to Mercy Eke, that did not go well with her.
In her words;
”Immediately I saw that I called Chief Priest and told him what was going on on the internet; and we decided that if the company say they do not know me, I too do not know them. I told the company that if I was going to go ahead with the deal, they should release an official statement saying that they know me and to also apologise.
“My management made me return the money because they refuse to apologise and the damage has been done.”
