Mercy Eke has beaten stiff competition to emerge as the winner of the Big Brother Naija reality show, season 4.
The 26-year-old bagged 41 percent of the votes cast, more than double the 19 percent the runner up, Mike, got to emerge the first female winner of the show.
Mercy, Mike and three other housemates – Seyi, Omashola, and Frodd, had made it to the finale of the keenly contested PepperDem race.
With millions of fans stuck to their screens, the organisers made sure to bring the show to a thrilling but suspense-filled close.
Seyi and Omashola were the first to taste disappointment with their eviction. Frodd would follow leaving the audience holding their breath waiting for who between Mercy and Mike will be going home with the grand prize of N60 million.
Host Ebuka-Obi Uchendu was in his element and made sure to take the suspense up a notch, making the most of the last of 99-drama filled days before declaring Mercy the winner to wild cheers from her supporters.
A total of 240 million votes were recorded for the BBNaija season 4, with over 50 million votes in the final week alone.
