Ike Onyema, a former participant of the Big Brother Naija reality show, has shared that he and his former lover, Mercy Eke, have found it more suitable to maintain a friendly relationship.
TSZ Naija previously reported on their romantic involvement during the “Pepper Dem” season of Big Brother Naija in 2019, but their relationship eventually came to an end after the show.
During an appearance on Cool FM Nigeria’s Big Friday Show, hosted by fellow reality TV star Tacha, Ike clarified why he didn’t attempt to reignite their relationship during the recent Big Brother Naija All-Stars season.
He expressed, “I didn’t rekindle my relationship with Mercy in the just concluded Big Brother Naija All Stars season because we are better off as friends.
At least for me, I always feel like when you go back to an ex, you might not always get what you want.”
Ike’s sentiments provide insight into his perspective on rekindling relationships with ex-partners and how, in his case, maintaining a platonic friendship is the preferred choice.
