The AMVCA awards ceremony from the weekend has remained a hot topic on social media, and some of the participants’ attire has continued to spark a considerable uproar. As a result, some celebrities, like Mercy Eke, have gained notoriety on social media. The 2019 Big Brother Naija winner, Mercy Eke, again attracted Cardi B’s attention with her appearance at the African Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards in Lagos.
Mercy has received further congratulations from online users for her Cardi B social media recognition and additional praise for her AMVCA appearance. The first time happened in 2019 when Mercy Eke practically jumped for delight after Cardi B commented on a picture of her looking like she was dressed like the celebrity and after releasing an appealing image of Mercy Eke looking polished with the same makeup and hairdo as American rapper Cardi B, a fan page for the reality star revealed the details.
On Sunday, May 20, Mercy stunned onlookers by baring her figure in a seductive custom-made Xtrabrideslagos Lagos outfit. The dress had a lavishly embellished satin corset-style bodice complemented with matching gloves and a cloak. Her hair was neatly done in a low bun with loose curls and delicately tucked under the cape. She finished the look with neutral, glossy lip color and smokey eye shadow.
Swanky Jerry, a celebrity stylist, styled the 32-year-old reality TV personality for her stunning AMVCA appearance, which also drew comparisons to one of Cardi’s looks. A picture of Mercy wearing her gown was posted on Cardi B’s Instagram with the caption “888888888” because she liked the way it looked.
As mentioned, this isn’t the first time Cardi has noticed Mercy’s sense of style; in 2019, the ‘Bodak Yellow’ singer left a comment on a different picture of the reality star where she had imitated one of the rapper’s appearances. Cardi left a remark on the image, saying,
“Wow, lookin’ sexy”
The reality star’s friends and supporters were delighted by the latest reaction. Mercy Eke responded to the praise once more by quoting the tweet and writing;
“Bow Down b!tches”. #AMVCA9
