Grammy award-winning rap artiste and songwriter, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, better known as Cardi B, has shown her appreciation for 2019 Big Brother Nigeria winner, Mercy Eke, through a remarkable fashion tribute.
Eke had taken inspiration from one of Cardi B’s iconic outfits from a 2020 video, creating her own version for the African Magic Viewers Choice Awards.
