I Didn’t Fight MC Galaxy Over N1 Million Gift From Ex-Gov. Akpabio —Mercy Eke
Reality television star Mercy Eke has debunked the rumours trailing her about fighting musician MC Galaxy over one million Naira gift given to them by Senator Godswill Akpabio.
Days ago, news made the round that Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) winner, Mercy, had a messy faceoff with MC Galaxy after Akpabio failed to compensate them handsomely for gracing his declaration of his presidential ambition.
Speaking to the Punch, Mercy explained that “there was no such event, so I don’t know where the rumour is coming from. That is the only thing I want to say on this. Nothing like that happened between me and anybody.”
She also stated that singer Timi Dakolo was aware of what happened, “Timi Dakolo was there and we were all happy. I don’t know who is spreading this false news.”
It was reported that the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and a former two-term governor of the Akwa Ibom State, Akpabio, was said to have promised to compensate the celebrities for being present at the event.
Akpabio allegedly ignored them during the event, but allegedly gave MC Galaxy one million for the celebrities present to share. This annoyed Mercy, who reportedly quarrelled with MC Galaxy for dragging her to the event.
On Wednesday, May 4, Akpabio declared his intention to contest for the position of president on the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC.
He made his formal declaration at the Ikot Ekpene township Stadium, in Ikot Ekpene local government area of Akwa Ibom.
