- BBNaija 2019 winner, Mercy Eke, does not seem to be enjoying every aspect of being a celebrity
- The 26-year-old recently took to her Instastory to complain about being busy at every moment
- Mercy added that she sometimes wishes to have her old life back
To be in the spotlight and be the talk of town for positive reasons is the dream of many Nigerians. I mean, who would not like to have people answering to their every whim and being at their beck and call?
The above scenario is what many people envision when they think of being celebrities. However, they do not consider the amount of work that goes into maintaining the status seeing as it is better to be relevant than to be regarded as a ‘has been’.
Despite that, some celebrities, especially the new ones are having a hard time adjusting to their fame and that is the case with BBNaija 2019 winner, Mercy Eke.
The 26-year-old recently took to her Instagram live to lament about the challenges she has been facing for being a celeb. According to her, she now has a calendar that determines her every move and she sometimes wishes to have her old life back.
In her words: “This thing, it looks rosy on social media, it’s not rosy. I think I want my old life back. Yea, I want to sleep, wake up when I want, don’t have anything to do, don’t have a calendar. Right now guys I have a calendar. It suc*ks, like I hate it.
Yea I prayed for this but I feel like it’s too much. People keep telling me it’s going to reduce; it will calm down, no! it’s not calming down, it keeps getting worse. I don’t have a life of my own anymore. I feel like I want my old life back.”

Hmm. It seems being a known face is not always sunshine and roses.
