@KVng_Nilla “Emenike really did Mercy dirty. Men will really embarrass you.”
@9jacrib, “Mercy thanks for telling us you once dated Emenike. But I bet you if he was not famous you wouldn’t have talked about it neither would you have dated him. I’m sure you went for the money and the guy was fast to know what you represent and hence decided to allow you date yourself while he moved on.”
