Fans question double standards as controversial moment goes unnoticed by Big Brother’s cameras
In a surprising turn of events, Big Brother Naija All Stars housemate, Mercy Eke, has found herself in the midst of controversy after sharing a secret kiss with fellow housemate Kiddwaya. The incident, which took place on the secluded Head of the House stairs, has sparked a wave of criticism and raised questions about the fairness of the show’s editing.
During Thursday’s arena game, Mercy extended an invitation to Kiddwaya, leading them to the relatively unmonitored area of the house. Although the cameras did not capture the moment clearly, the distinct sounds of their lips meeting, before they went their separate ways, were unmistakable.
News of the incident quickly spread online, with fans and viewers expressing their varying opinions in the comments section. Many were quick to point out the apparent bias in the show’s editing, suggesting that certain housemates receive preferential treatment over others.
One viewer, @Stephen Mayowa Alexander Joshua, voiced his frustration, stating, “They purposely don’t wanna show it. If it’s someone else now, they will show it all day. Why the double standard though? Are some housemates bigger than one another?”
Another viewer, @TairatBt, questioned whether the angle of the cameras was intentionally blocked or if the show’s producers deliberately chose to hide the evidence of the kiss. This sentiment was echoed by @queen, who exclaimed, “Hmmmmm, I thought nobody is permitted to cross that step except the HoH and her BFFs?”
However, not all comments were critical of the incident. Some viewers defended Mercy’s actions, suggesting that she was simply seeking attention and highlights for herself. @ib_belz remarked, “Mercy is seriously seeking highlights. Aunty obviously doesn’t have anything to offer.” On the other hand, @sho_laye claimed that Mercy had intentionally avoided the camera, stating, “Mercy said she was running away from the camera on purpose. They actually kissed; she was really excited.”
Amidst the mixed reactions, @ayomide_omolayo revealed that Mercy herself had admitted to hiding from the camera. This confession only fueled the debate further, leaving fans divided on whether Mercy’s actions were justified or not.
As the news of the secret kiss continues to circulate, some fans expressed their disappointment in Mercy’s behavior. @sparkles01, a self-proclaimed Mercy fan, expressed their disappointment, saying, “I am a Mercy fan, but this is disappointing. What happened to decorum and decency? Na wa o.”
The controversy surrounding Mercy and Kiddwaya’s secret kiss has undoubtedly added a new layer of intrigue to the Big Brother Naija All Stars house. As the show progresses, viewers will be eagerly watching to see how this incident unfolds and whether it will have any lasting consequences for the housemates involved.
