Following her victory as the winner of the Big Brother Naija TV reality show, season 4, Mercy was presented a brand-new Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), made by Innoson Vehicle Motors. Amid the whole excitement of her win, Blogger and Entertainer, Tunde Ednut, shared his opinion about the car on Twitter. According to him, the organizers could have done better by presenting the winner with a better car like a G-wagon or Ranger Rover instead of what he described as a “Nepa Motor.”
Twitter users felt the tweet was unpatriotic
For those who do not know what NEPA means, it is an Acronym for National Electric Power Authority. NEPA was the national electricity provider in the country before the institution was privatized. Given the bad state of electricity in the country, being associated with NEPA is far from being a compliment. If anything, it is derogatory. Twitter users got the shade in his comment, and dragged him for it.

>>> Tunde Ednut is not the only one who badmouths Innoson products: Daddy Freeze (BB Naija): Innoson vehicle are way too expensive!
Responding to his comment, some online users cussed him out, and threw jabs at him over his former musical career.
Check out some of the comments.
Mercy made history as the first woman to win the popular TV reality show which ended on Sunday, October 6, 2019, ever since it began.
Well, everyone has an opinion. What is yours?
