Reality TV star and serial entrepreneur, Mercy Eke, has denied ever dating her much publicized estranged “boyfriend” and former colleague, Ike Onyema.

The Big Brother Naija “pepperdem” winner and Ike met during the 4th edition of the reality show and started dating in the house. Their romance continued after the show, and they even launched their own reality show, “Mercy & Ike,” until their breakup in 2021.


However, speaking on the Frankly Speaking podcast with Nedu and Pretty Mike, Mercu Eke said she and Ike Onyema were never an item.

She stated this while clearing the air on the assumption that she was taking care of Ike while they were together.

The 28-year-old was narrating how she was in a relationship with someone she was practically taking care of, and the hosts interrupted by saying that they know it was the person she was dating in the house.

Mercy quickly dismissed their assumption and noted that she and IKe never dated.

Well, Ike Onyema has now reacted in a lengthy Instagram post.

Reacting, Ike Onyema shared the clip on his Instagram page and berated the hosts, Nedu and Pretty Mike for bringing him into the conversation.

“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 pig’s, I am making a bold statement that no lady whosoever has taken care of me.

If anyone claim otherwise they should bring out receipts of one thing they have done, I have been quite 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 the 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!!!!!”
