Women all over the world are winning and breaking barrier. They are surprisingly doing things and are becoming more independent.
The winner of BBNaija Season 4, Mercy Eke, has taken swipe at some people who think her wealth was gotten through man. She is simply not happy with the claims in some quarters that a man is responsible for her success.
The diva took to her YouTube channel to blast this haters, she said:
“In this part of the world, people believe a man is behind the success of a woman, whether she is married or single. I work hard for everything I own today. When people say a man is behind these things, I find it appalling. However, it does not get to me anymore because what else would one say? It only shows that my success is visible.”
When a fan asked her about the state of her relationship with Ike Onyema, she said, “Break up happened. We are done. That ship sank a long time ago. I am in a happy place and he is good as well. Stop flooding my timeline with this silly question; we are over. So, let’s just keep it moving.”
Eke also stated that the fear of failure makes her stronger. She said, “My biggest fear in life is failure. I don’t want to fail and go back to the streets. I don’t want to roast corn anymore. I just want to keep doing what I know how to do best. God has blessed me. The fear of failure makes me stronger. I want to be a better person. I want today to be better than yesterday. That is why no matter what is thrown at me, I would never stop growing. I would never stop establishing myself and I would never stop dreaming,”
According to the former BBN contestant, she sometimes forgets that she is a celebrity. She added, “I worked hard for this fame and I won’t let the fame get to me. Sometimes, I even forget that I am a celebrity. I drive myself and do things a normal person does.”
