BBNaija star, Mercy Eke has denied rumours that she is successful because of her relationship with men.
According to her, she is successful because of her efforts and not that of any man. She made this known in a video she uploaded to her YouTube channel.
In the video, 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.”
She also used the opportunity to reveal that the fear of failure makes her stronger. Speaking of fear, 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. 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.”
