He mentioned that his comedy show, Lord of the Ribs was on the 28th and 29th of September and promised the next person getting evicted a free ticket. Mercy, reacting to it, told him that her birthday was on day two of the show to which he promised her a gift in form of a shout out.
Although most of the reactions fans had on the news were positive, some were still negative as they claimed he showed bias towards the others. Here are some comments gathered:

#BBNaija BasketMouth openly confesses that he would be depressed if Tacha wins; he leads his crew to the house and they openly affirm it by just praising Mercy for Nothing in particular

#bbnaija what Basketmouth and His ‘boys’ did last night was a show of shame. You are supposed to hype the housemates . We agree you have your fav but as a professional drop your bias/hatred at the gate and be fair. Mercy na basketmouth come campaign 4’and to sell his market.
