Sensational Nigerian gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo’s recent performance has sparked mixed reactions from Nigerians on social media.
The new Mrs is being dragged through the mud for performing at a campaign rally of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Akwa Ibom State.
The singer had bewildered many netizens when she stormed the governorship campaign rally in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital on Tuesday, November 8 to perform as an artiste.
According to Channels TV, the 32-year-old singer who got married a few months ago, dazzled the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel; his wife, Martha; and thousands of other party loyalists in the state with her gospel songs.
Some of the songs she sang include ‘See the way you love me…’; ‘Jesus, you love me too much’, amongst others.
“Sister Mercy, this is electrifying,” the governor enthused in his speech after her ministration.
The report of her performance at the rally has been generating reactions from tweeps as some condemned the move while others believe she was only delivering on a job she was paid for.
Below are some of the reactions compiled from Twitter.
