A former Big Brother Naija reality show winner, Mercy Eke has opened up on why she had plastic surgery.
Her revelation comes after a Port Harcourt big girl, Crystabel died as a result of a botched plastic surgery.
This has forced Nigerians to condemn those altering their God-given natural bodies through plastic surgery.
Mercy while speaking during a new interview said she got her body enhanced to boost her self-confidence.
The reality star said, “I did it for myself. I did it to enhance my confidence. I wanted to look good in what I wear. I’m into fashion. I have to have a certain type of body for myself.
“I feel like those that are hiding the truth, probably don’t have the confidence; they feel like they did it for someone.
“But I did it for myself. I did it to sell my business. So, I don’t think there is anything to be ashamed of in enhancing your body.
“People are bleaching…bleaching, make we no talk about being. It’s all the same thing. That is another form of enhancement because it’s not the way God created you.
“Even those that fix eyelashes. All these things, if we talk about them; are the same. So, if you think you are ‘that girl’, leave yourself the way God created you.”
