Ex-Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eyes housemate, Queen Mercy Atang has opened up on how God rescued her from a fire outbreak after speaking in tongues.
Taking to her Instagram story on Monday, the model stated that she had to run all the way from the 25th floor to the ground floor during the outbreak.
She said, “Waking up to a beautiful morning, excited and getting ready for the day. And then, the unexpected happened. So I heard the alarm twice but then, I didn’t pay attention because I was trying to reach out to my makeup artist.
“Suddenly, I discovered my apartment was filled with smoke. I opened the door and the whole place was filled with smoke. The elevator in the hotel wasn’t working anymore. No light in the building.
“I ran back to my apartment to alert my brother and bestie panicking. My apartment was on the 25th floor of the hotel. How we’re gonna get to the ground floor, we had no idea.
“My anxiety got to another level, but I decided to stay calm so I don’t scare my bestie and brother. We took a bold decision to run down the stairs.
“To find the hotel stairs was another issue. Luckily, we found it, and we started running all the way down to the ground floor from the 25th floor.
“(There was) smoke everywhere. We kept running. My bestie was running and shouting but my brother was very calm and he handled the situation so well.
“Well, I, on the other hand, kept speaking in tongues and saying to God that it can never happen; not on your watch. We finally got to the GF. Cutting the long story short, God saved me this morning. And I’m grateful to him.”
