My mum is pressuring me to get married – BBNaija winner, Mercy Eke

Winner of Big Brother Naija 2019, Mercy Eke has said that she would not bother getting married if she had a child out of wedlock.

The reality TV star revealed that she is under pressure from her mother to find a husband and settle down, but she had contemplated having a baby through surrogacy.

Mercy Eke said if she gets a baby before marriage, she would give all her love to the child and not bother about relationships with men anymore.

According to the 33-year-old, she loves the western world because they usually do whatever they like even if it entails having a child through surrogacy and being a single parent.

She said: “I had said that I was gonna buy a baby. Not like buying a baby. Just get someone, take my eggs, get someone to be a sperm donor, hire a surrogate and have a beautiful baby.

“That is what I was thinking because [of] my mum and her village people. She’s always going from one traditional wedding to another. You know, when you had gone to one thousand traditional weddings, they are now asking, ‘When is your daughter doing her own?’ I said, ‘Mummy, nobody should pressure me o!’

“So, I was like I could just have a baby. Happiness is happiness anywhere you find it. If you wanna give birth, you wanna get it elsewhere. That’s why I love Westerners. They just do what they like. Unlike where people would want you to be a certain way. But right now, I love that people, especially women, are doing what they like, however they deem fit.

“Now, that marriage sef. It’s like I go just carry belle, born, and rest. And, once I have a baby outside of marriage, I am not getting married again. Because the kind of love I will give to that baby, I will not love any man again. All my love, I will give it to my baby. So, I’ve only one relationship left in me.”
