Mercy and Ike are likely to be the first partners in the Big Brother Naija 2019 edition to thrill viewers with romantic relationship as both housemates kissed after expressing interest in each other.
The duo have been romantically and emotionally attracted to each other since the commencement of the BBNaija Pepper Dem season.
Lying in the same bed, Ike told Mercy he would like to be with her even after getting out of the house.
And Mercy replied, “I want to be with you too. If you leave here, I will become like Ceec. I don’t want you to leave, I want us to be here together”.
They both started kissing and necking, feeling the warmth of their individual skin underneath the duvet.

The viewers knew it was only a matter of time before they broke out of their shell and fulfil their respective fantasies.
It couldn’t come any sooner.
This singular act and moment could serve as Mercy’s redemption from getting evicted this Sunday. She is one of the five housemates that have been put up for eviction.
Mercy has a likeable personality, she is beautiful, charming and down-to-earth. But all of that means zilch when you don’t have a sturdy fan base.
Her union with Ike would be reminiscent of Miracle and Nina renowned as ‘Mina’ during the 2018 Big Brother ‘Double Wahala’ edition.
Romance is a major strategy in the Big Brother House.
Mercy igniting a romantic bond with Ike will bring more drama, entertainer and serve as a win-win situation for both housemates.
