After Monday night’s nomination challenge and subsequent strikes awarded to Tacha, Ike and Joe, the tension in the BBNaija house has been so thick, that you could cut it with a knife.
During the diary session tonight, Biggie asked each housemate to name two people they would have saved from being up for nomination. When it was Mercy’s turn, she mentioned Ike, which was to be expected, and surprisingly, mentioned Tacha.
Biggie went ahead to ask her for her reasons for choosing the two in particular, and ‘bootilicious’ Mercy started to blush. Amidst giggles. she eventually said:
“Ike is my friend, I think. My friend, my boyfriend, my strength, my comforter, my hype man. He is like, my everything in this house, my happy moments. Tacha, is a very nice girl…. she’s a sweet girl”
Check out the video below:
Mercy will save Ike and Tacha. Because Ike is her strength, her world and Tacha is just a sweet girl, her smile, 😍

She said if she had the power to save 2 nominated housemates, she would save Ike and Tacha.
She spoke about how disappointed she was with Diane's save & replace. She thought Diane would save Ike. She says it's a lesson for her because she would do anything for Diane
