The couple even went on to host a reality show together called, ‘Mercy and Ike Show’. However, in a shocking twist during the week, Mercy denied ever dating Ike, adding that she could only speak for herself. When asked if she was in a relationship with Ike on a podcast with Nedu and Pretty Mike, she said, “I don’t know what you are talking about.”

When pressed further by Pretty Mike on Ike claiming she was his girlfriend, Eke insisted, “I can speak for myself. I cannot speak for anybody. I still don’t know what you are talking about.”

Vee and Neo:

Neo Akpofure and Victoria Adeyele began their relationship while still on the 2020 edition of the reality show (Lockdown), and they both continued that way after the show.

When asked in an interview what attracted him to Vee, Neo had said, “Her confidence was very sexy to me and it made me fall for her. Then, the way she talks. I can listen to her for the rest of my life.”

However, it turned out that they may not be spending the rest of their lives together because the duo has since broken up.

In February 2022, Vee wrote in a social media post, ‘Soft and single’. This was after she had ‘unfollowed’ him on social media and deleted all the pictures they took together from her social media platforms.

Liquorose and Emmanuel:

Dancer, Roseline Afije, aka Liquorose, and another contestant, Emmanue Omoh, bonded well while participating in the 2022 edition of the show (Shine ya Eye), but according to them, they only started dating after the show had ended.

The relationship was however short-lived as they both went their separate ways on the account that Emmanuel cheated on her while they were in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. She stated that she walked in on him and another lady in a hotel room.

However, Emmanuel denied having anything to do with the lady he was seen with. According to him, he was only meeting an old friend and he allegedly slept off in the course of their conversation, before Liquorose came in.

Giving her own version of events, Liquorose, “The light was off, music was playing and the girl was sitting at the edge of the bed, which was rough. She also covered her face with a mask.”

Responding to his former lover, Emmanuel said, “Meeting a friend after a long time should not be a problem.”

What’s your thoughts on this? Do you think there will be another housemate lovers that might become couples in reality in the ongoing Big Brother level up edition?
