A few days ago, exciting news made its way online with reports of Big Brother Naija season 4 winner, Mercy Eke, signing an endorsement deal with champagne brand Moët & Chandon.
The news was immediately met with so much excitement from her fans as photos and videos of her at the Lagos Moët & Chandon office were posted on her Instagram page.
In one post, Mercy wrote:

In another, she wrote:
Thank you all for celebrating with me on this one.
I pray God gives you all a reason to celebrate too?
Special thanks to my big bro, @cubana_chiefpriest and my new family @moetchandon ❤️ ??
Paschal Okechukwu, General Manager of Cubana Conglomerate and a trade partner for Moet & Chandon, also shared the news on his social media platform. He posted a video of Mercy seemingly signing papers, and captioned:

Here’s what you should know…
While Mercy is not an ambassador for the luxury champagne brand,Moët & Chandon proudly supported her party with bottles of luxury champagne.
According to the direct confirmation from a Moët official to a BellaNaija team member, Moët & Chandon is currently not signing any new ambassadors and they generally allow people to take photos in their offices. This wasn’t an exception. The source stated that Moët & Chandon is happy for Mercy for her success so far and that they wish her well. She is however not an ambassador for Moët & Chandon.
Yesterday, Moët & Chandon actually hosted some of their Moët Society members to a private dinner.
To be fair, Mercy never explicitly stated that she is an ambassador for the global brand. According to her caption, she’s just happy to be a part of the family.
