Day 49: 10 Sept: Mercy Eke kisses Pere – BBNaija

10 September 2023
Mercy Eke locked lips with Pere a few times last night, and one can only wonder how the day will unfold for them.
Pere and Mercy Eke kiss

The Saturday night rave is no stranger to passion, but the most unexpected display of it happened last night. Mercy Eke shocked Pere when she locked lips with him, not once, but twice, during and after the Saturday night rave. The kisses were an unexpected twist because Mercy Eke and Whitemoney, affectionately known as WhiteLambo by fans, had recently been at the centre of intense ship banter. They have also been seen playfully discussing their future together and potential names for their "children".

Watch the Saturday night rave: 

How it started:

During the Saturday night rave, Mercy Eke was a whirlwind of energy, dancing across the floor and effortlessly moving between Pere and Whitemoney. She appeared to be enjoying the party, sharing her drink with the boys, and eventually kissing Pere passionately in what seemed to be a stolen kiss. Who was she hiding from? Our guess is: Whitemoney. Guilt seemed to be consuming her and she kept trying to get Whitemoney's attention as he showered, but he was not responding. Was Whitemoney upset because he saw Mercy Eke and Pere flirt? 

As the night progressed, Pere candidly confessed to Mercy Eke that he had been "affected" by the party's kiss and couldn't stand straight. Mercy Eke touched Pere's "privacy" and suggested that they address his feelings, then proceeded to plant kisses all over his face. This move saw the quick intervention of Ilebaye, who said she was trying to protect Mercy Eke. Mercy Eke then asked Ilebaye to cover for her if Whitemoney questioned her about what had transpired. The plan was for Ilebaye to deflect any inquiries by claiming the trio had been discussing KimOprah.

Later that evening, Pere ditched his bedroom for Mercy Eke's bedroom. If Pere had plans to take things to the next level, they failed to materialise because Whitemoney was right there with Mercy Eke. 

With everything happening in Biggie's view, Mercy Eke cannot deny this kiss with Pere, similar to how she denied kissing Kiddwaya. Will she attribute this unexpected display of affection to the influence of alcohol, as she has done previously, should she be quizzed by Ebuka? Most importantly, what will happen between Mercy Eke, Pere and Whitemoney as things heat up on all sides?
