Pere denies surprising Mercy Eke with iPhone 15, money bouquet

Reality TV star cum Nollywood actor, Pere Egbi has dismissed speculations that he was the person who sent a bouquet of roses, money and iPhone 15 Pro Max to Mercy Eke.

Mercy recently took delivery of an array of gifts from a mystery man which she showed off on her social media page and this sparked a guessing game.

Her fans opined that Pere sent the gifts to the BBNaija ‘Pepper Dem’ winner, since he is her love interest, but he shut it down. The actor took to his official Twitter (X) page to clarify that he was not the sender.

Reacting to the speculations, Pere tweeted; “Respectfully that was not me.”
