Former Big Brother Naija season 6 Shine Ya Eye star and ex-housemate, Queen Mercy Atang has officially tendered a heartfelt apology to her colleague and co-reality star Maria Benjamin Chike, following their outburst in the Biggie’s Shine Ya Eye House.
Queen apologizes to Maria through a post on her Instagram page, where she equally narrated what transpired the night she had the altercation with Maria.
According to her post, she was trying to be protective of herself, when, during the question game in Biggie’s House, she felt Maria was trying to mock her by bringing up a question about how many days she just came into the House.
Also, Queen disclosed that she would have apologized to Maria during the Shine Ya Eye Reunion, but she didn’t get the opportunity to do so, hence, her decision to apologize now.
Queen wrote; “Still enjoying my day 2 in Biggie’s beautiful space.. I recall me chilling on my bed. Then boma came around. We gisted for few minutes before some housemates came around.
“The likes of @liquorose @crossda_boss and few others came around and started shouting in amazement. I was like going on. And Liquorose goes. This is the first time this guy is lying on a girl’s bed. I was surprised and the rest of the housemates concurred.
“Immediately I felt special, I mean coming from Liquore, I totally believed them. They all left the room. Leaving Just I n bomzy, I started questioning him. Why haven’t you been on other girls bed? why me? Our convo was a lot. And we concluded on chilling and vibing with each other in biggie’s house.
“Few minutes later, the housemates gathered for our usual games. During the games a question game up and I noticed the housemates tried to shush @singhniniofficial she was trying to counter the housemates, saying that wasn’t the first time bomzy had been on a girls bed. Finally she understood what was going on and kept quite. I knew something was off. And it gave me a mood swing immediately.
“Another question came up and I quickly and hurriedly said true true true. Immediately @mariachikebenjamin said to me you’ve only been here for two days. This didn’t sit well with me. So I tried having a conversation with her. Maybe it was my tone or manner of approach I can’t really tell but she said she wasn’t having the convo with me. This got me pissed because I felt she was in away trying to intimidate me. Maybe because I got into the house late.
“I can be very protective of myself, hence my outburst that faithful night.. and other nights
“I was able to speak with other housemates, some how I got to understand @mariachikebenjamin a little. Though we didn’t have the time to settle. I’m openly apologizing for my outburst that night. I’m really sorry babe. I can be very protective of myself.. I wanted doing this during the reunion show. Unfortunately I couldn’t. You’re amazing and I am wishing you everything good.”

Recall that since after the outburst between Queen and Maria, both reality TV stars haven’t been in good terms with each other. But we now assume Maria will find a place in her heart to forgive Queen, and possibly reconcile with her.
Meanwhile, Maria has responded to Queen’s apology, and she (Maria) wholeheartedly accepted the apology, as she tells Queen that it has been love from her end, adding that she’s wishing her nothing but pure bliss.
“IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN LOVE FROM THIS END BABYGIRL @queenmercyatang WISHING YOU NOTHING BUT PURE BLISS ALWAYS,” Maria replied.
