Winner of Big Brother Naija Pepper Dem season, Mercy Eke, has endorsed Shine Ya Eye housemate, Maria, in the ongoing sixth season of the show.

The season four winner took to her verified Instagram page on Friday, day 13 of the show, to drum her support for Maria, whose fans go by the name 'Marians'.

Showing her support for the former air hostess, Mercy shared a picture of Maria, with the caption, “Good morning, this is a boarding announcement on flight Marians! We are calling all passengers to proceed to the boarding gate.

“Welcome onboard flight Marians, we are currently cruising at an altitude of 13days. The time is 10:15 am. The weather looks good and we are expecting to land by 77days ahead.

“Please fasten your seatbelts at this time, turn off all negative devices for the duration of this flight. Thank you for choosing Marians Airlines. Enjoy your flight.”

Following the endorsement, Maria’s Instagram handler via @mariachikebenjamin, commented, “Awwwn, Queen Lambo. Thank you so much.”

From Wildcard to endorsement

Maria got into the show as a Wildcard – one of the fake housemates – and perfectly disguised herself, ensuring that she wasn’t fished out by the other housemates.

Due to her perfect disguise, she -and the other Wildcard, Pere – scaled through eviction on Sunday as the housemates failed to predict correctly.

This gave her a nomination edge; she was made to nominate any four housemates for eviction and she chose Whitemoney, Yerins, Beatrice, and Jaypaul but Jaypaul was later saved by the Head of House, Boma.

After she nominated the housemates for eviction, Maria’s handler alleged death threats on her social media direct messages.

Notwithstanding, Maria has become a real housemate and is currently playing the game to win the grand prize worth N90 million and an endorsement from a past winner is a feather to her cap.
