History was made Sunday night as Mercy Eke, a video vixen, emerged winner of the Big Brother Naija season 4 after a very emotional and enduring 99 days in the Big Brother Naija House. Amidst screams and shouts, Mercy was unveiled the winner at a fevered pitch grand finale show that had five contestants vying for the ultimate prize worth ₦60 million.
Mike, Mercy, Frodd, Omashola and Seyi were the only housemates left in the game that premiered on June 30 with 21 housemates. Five other housemates were later added to the game, intensifying the drama in the ‘Pepper Dem’ season.
While the last housemates awaited their fate in the house, the live eviction show kicked off with dance shows from Dance Machine and Zinny X. A groovy performance by Patoranking quickly followed it.
Seyi was the first to be evicted, leaving behind Mercy, Omashola, Frodd and Mike. Omashola followed next. Frodd seemed not to believe his ears. It was as if he expected to be the next to take his leave after Seyi’s exit. He, however, was the third housemate to leave the house.
With the three housemates out of the race, the game was left to Mercy Eke and Mike who were respectively known as Queen of Highlights and King of Cruise in the show.
