Mercy Eke the winner of Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) Pepper Dem season, has shown support for Shine Ya Eye housemate, Maria, in the ongoing sixth season of the show.
Mercy took to her verified Instagram page on Friday to drum support for former air hostess, Maria, whose fans go by the name “Marians.”
Mercy shared a picture of Maria, with the caption, “Good morning, this is a boarding announcement on flight Marians! We are calling all passengers to proceed to boarding gate.
“Welcome onboard flight Marians, we are currently cruising at an altitude 13days. The time is 10:15am. The weather looks good and we are expecting to land by 77days ahead.
“Please fasten your seatbelts at this time, turn off all negative devices for the duration of this flight. Thank you for choosing Marians Airlines. Enjoy your flight.”
Following the endorsement, Maria’s Instagram handler via @mariachikebenjamin, commented, “Awwwn, Queen Lambo. Thank you so much.”
Recall that Maria got into the show as a Wildcard – one of the two fake housemates – and perfectly disguised herself, ensuring that she wasn’t fished out by the other housemates.
Due to her perfect disguise, she and the other Wildcard, Pere scaled through eviction on Sunday as the housemates failed to predict correctly. She’s now playing the game to win the grand prize worth N90 million.
This gave her a nomination edge; she was made to nominate any four housemates for eviction and she chose Whitemoney, Yerins, Beatrice, and Jaypaul, who was later saved by the Head of House, Boma.
After she nominated the housemates for eviction, Maria’s handler alleged death threats on her social media direct messages.
