Big Brother Naija Pepper dem winner Mercy Eke speak on her failed deal with champagne company.
According to Mercy Eke, she was contacted by a champagne company that was ready to sign a deal with her. And after meeting with the company, she was paid a huge sum of money even before signing papers due to the good impression Mercy and her management team left.
This occurred on a Wednesday and she is to activate the deal the following day which was a Thursday, but things turned around when a fan put a call through to one of the staff of the champagne company to confirm if truly the company signed Mercy.
However, things went wrong as the staff told the fan that they had no deal with Mercy. After the call, the fan was said to have posted the information online, making users troll Mercy therefore tarnishing her image.
“Immediately I saw that, I called Chief Priest and told him what was going on on the internet and we decided that if the company say they do not know me, me too do not know them. I told the company that if I was going to go ahead with the deal, they should release an official statement saying that they know me and to also apologise. My management made me return the money because, they refuse to apologise and the damage has been done.”
According to her, she was unable to go ahead with the deal, though the company was a big and well recognised one.
She blamed the loss of money, damage to her integrity and image to the fan who went ahead to make public information that was not true and also not gotten from the right source.
