Nollywood actor, Yul Edoche, has reacted to comments credited to some Nigerians who say Mercy Eke is local. The BBNaija star had come under attack by some individuals who call her an Annoying Local Star.
The comment against Mercy Eke didn’t go down well with Yul who came across the comments online. He immediately reacted to the comment, reminding Mercy’s attackers of their root and the need to focus on their background instead of adopting the white man’s cultural behaviour as a social behavioural standard.
Yul took to his twitter page and twitted;
“White people messed up our brains, making us see our own local ways as local. Cristiano Ronaldo speaks English with a Portuguese accent, have you called him local? Many brains need to be formatted in this country. We no be oyibo (we are not whites). Mercy is not local, she’s simply Nigerian or Biafran.”
Mercy is the winner of the Big Brother Naija 2019 edition, and has since become very popular, with several deals to her credit.
