Let $\mathcal{A}$ and $\mathcal{B}$ be two $C^{*}$-algebras such that $\mathcal{B}$ is prime. In this paper, we investigate the additivity of maps $\Phi$ from $\mathcal{A}$ onto $\mathcal{B}$ that are bijective, unital and satisfy $\Phi(AP+\eta PA^{*})=\Phi(A)\Phi(P)+\eta \Phi(P)\Phi(A)^{*},$ for all $A\in\mathcal{A}$ and $P\in\{P_{1},I_{\mathcal{A}}-P_{1}\}$ where $P_{1}$ is a nontrivial projection in $\mathcal{A}$. If $\eta$ is a non-zero complex number such that $|\eta|\neq1$, then $\Phi$ is additive. Moreover, if $\eta$ is rational<,> then $\Phi$ is $\ast$-additive.
