She noted that celebrating 27 when the BBNaija str is over 35 is embarrassing.
A part of her comment read:
"Mercy, please you have passed 35 years. Is it not you, Mercy from Egbu Imo state again? Even my relationship who knew you from primary school to secondary that both of you attended is more than 39 years. Aunty Mercy, biko stop mocking God's grace in your life. Biko you are more than 35 if not 40 years, forget your small body. My point is to glorify God for the long life he has given you."
As expected, Mercy's lovers replied to her comment by blasting the actress while telling her to mind her business.
That did not seem to move Chidinma as she made a post on her own Instagram page to address the matter. According to her, she is not moved by what Mercy's fans are saying to her.
She noted that she said the truth about the BBNaija star and it is what that matters to her.
In other news, Legit.ng earlier reported that actor Yul Edochie defended Mercy Eke after some people called her a local star.
According to the actor, a lot of Nigerians have been so consumed by the westerners that it has made them start seeing their people as local.
Edochie noted that popular footballer Cristiano Ronaldo speaks the English language with a Portuguese accent and has never been referred to as being local.
