Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Ike Onyema has lambasted his colleague and former girlfriend, Mercy Eke, after she denied dating him during an interview with media personalities Nedu Wazobia and Pretty Mike.
Mercy Eke and Ike Onyema
During in a recent podcast with Nedu and Mike, Mercy had denied dating Ike, but admitted that she was once in a relationship with someone who she took care of.
Although she didn’t reveal the name, those on the podcast, Mike and Nedu insinuated that they knew who she was referring to and subsequently asked her about Ike.
Stating that she could only speak for herself, Eke denied knowing of any relationship with the named reality TV personality.
When asked if she was in a relationship with Ike, Eke said: “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
Mike then rephrased the question and chipped in: “he allegedly said that you were his girlfriend. So you never dated him?”
Eke insisted: “I can speak for myself. I can’t speak for anybody. I still don’t know what you are talking about.”
The house would then teasingly argue that it might have been a case of one-sided dating.
Ike Onyema Slam Mercy Eke
Reacting on his Instagram page, Ike accused the trio of disrespecting him, threatening to expose Mercy if she continues to “drag my reputation to the mud”.
The reality star, who debunked the claims that a woman ever took care of him while they were dating, warned Mike and Nedu to desist from “talking about me” or pay for the consequences
He wrote, “I am responding to this, because it’s obvious that the producers of this podcast can’t pay for ads to promote the dead podcast, so as usual, they look for who to attack to indirectly promote their dead podcast, well congratulations you have Triggered perfectly, for over two years my image and reputation have constantly been dragged to the mud.
“So it’s time to swim with pigs, I am making a bold statement that no lady whosoever has taken care of me. If anyone claims otherwise they should bring out receipts of one thing they have done, I have been quiet because I don’t also want to expose so many people including the show.”
“So I intentionally allowed myself to be ridiculed, but that era is over, people that can’t take care of their family coming out to chat shit about me, @nedu_wazobiafm and @prettymikeoflagos please be careful how involve yourself in things you have no idea of the background story.”
“I respect both of you but I would not hesitate to call you guys out if I’m being disrespected to please your principals and the bosses that hired you. This should be the last time anyone would use me to count cheap scores.”
“I would start dropping receipts and exposing everyone if this continues, I have enough receipts to go around and everybody go collect, enough is enough!!!!! A word is enough for the wise!!!!!”
Ike added, “People I respect so much, even the guy with blonde hair, someone I call my friend and drink together with, can comfortably sit on a podcast and chat shit about me, would go a long way to tell you about what the word friendship mean to people.”
“They keep forgetting that I blog and people randomly send me information about so many celebrities, even when I don’t ask, I just don’t want to ridicule anybody, but I know everything everyone is doing (Both dirty and clean), I just chose not to go down that line of trying to Humiliate them.
“But I’m waiting for any of them to respond to me openly and we can now unveil cans of worms. I dare any of them to reply to me or respond back…
“Be careful who you call your friend, that’s all I have to say for now!!”
KanyiDaily recalls that Ike Onyema and Mercy Eke met during the BBNaija show and continued their relationship outside the house until they announced their split in 2020.
