There have been speculations that the Moet and Chandon ambassadorial deal signed by Big Brother Naija winner, Mercy Eke, with the help of Cubana Chief Priest is just a facade.
Mercy announced a few days ago that she had signed a deal to represent the Moet and Chandon brand in Africa. Immediately, some overzealous investigators got to work and discovered some shocking secrets.
According to news making the rounds, Moet and Chandon revealed that Mercy Eke was not legally signed by the company as an ambassador. This raised even more red flags.
More investigations have shown that the Cubana chief priest only curated the ambassadorial deal in order to prevent Mercy from signing deals with other alcoholic beverage brands. This was because his club, Cubana, had an existing deal with Moet and Chandon and he needed Mercy to help him make more sales for the alcoholic beverage.
Instead of informing Mercy and looping her into the deal, he allegedly deceived her into signing a non-existing deal.
Mercy’s team, after further investigation, reportedly discovered his plans and arranged for her to be signed into proper management; hence, her announcement that she had joined the Upfront and Personal management company owned by renowned public relations extraordinaire, Paul Okoye.
This new turn of events did not seem to go down well with the Cubana chief priest, as he has since unfollowed Mercy on Instagram.
Sources also claim he had planned to use Mercy to further publicise his club, and her Owerri homecoming almost didn’t happen because Mercy’s new management asked for payment to the tune of 1.5 million naira which the Cubana chief priest declined.
He explained that he was instrumental in Mercy winning the just concluded Big Brother Naija reality show and she, therefore, needed to pay her dues.
The team informed Cubana chief priest that Mercy is currently a brand and all appearances need to be financially paid for before the due date.
It seems this might be the end to the budding relationship between Obi Cubana (Cubana Chief Priest) and Mercy Eke.
