#BBNaija: I Could Have Bought Immunity For Myself And Still Lost – Ike

 

Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Ikechukwu Onyema, popularly known as Ike says he is excited that his girlfriend, Mercy, emerged as this season’s winner.

While in the house, Mercy had secured immunity into the final week after she borrowed some coins from Ike – a move which sparked various reactions from fans of the show especially after Ike got evicted.

He, however, told Channels Television that he was well aware of Mercy’s decision and both of them had agreed that either of them would purchase immunity.

“Me and Mercy had tried to plan out a lot of things in the game. I gave her the coins so she could get immunity,” he said in an interview with Channels TV’s Entertainment News.

“We were going to get immunity. Either she was, or I was and I was feeling too strong in the game… too confident and since her birthday way coming up, I said she should just buy it.

“I think it ended up a good decision. I could have bought for myself and still probably lost so I think it was a good decision.”

Speaking about his relationship with other housemates, he said he had a really good time in the house and he looks forward to working with most of them especially as he pursues his dreams in Modelling, acting and presenting.

Meanwhile, he also mentioned that he was very entertained by Tacha, who many had judged to be one of the most controversial housemates of the season.
“Tacha entertained me a lot. Her little attitudes and things she did always made me laugh. Also, she was a wonderful cook so why wouldn’t I be around her,” he said.

“I didn’t see what everybody else saw and like I said, she just entertained me and I was sad to see her go”.

The Love I‘ve Received From My State Has Been The Best – Diane

 

Just days after the Big Brother Naija reality show came to an end, former housemate, Diane Russet, has shared some of her experiences from the house and her reception outside the house so far.

Speaking with Channels Television on Monday, the Kaduna State indigene who was also one of the youngest housemates in the #PepperDem season, said the experience in the house was amazing and she has also come home to receive overwhelming love from fans.

According to her, coming from a conservative background, and being the first ever female housemate from the north, she never expected the love and support she was greeted with on leaving the house.

“The love I have received from my state has been the best,” she said.

“I didn’t expect it this way.. I thought I’d be judged or criticized but the fact that I get calls and people say I made them proud, I made the northern part proud and some even say their daughters look up to me, is amazing”.

Speaking about her friendship with fellow housemate, Elozonam, she explained that both of them are great friends and for now are only looking forward to knowing each other better and working together.

It had been an intriguing and eventful 99 days, with 26 housemates, each serving their own dose of ‘pepper’ along the way.

Big Brother Naija Housemate, Tacha has been disqualified from the reality show.

The 23-year-old who has been one of the most controversial housemates in this year’s season was disqualified on Friday evening after she and fellow housemate, Mercy got involved in a fight earlier in the day.

Their disagreement started when the Head Of House, Seyi, called everyone to the lounge so they could read their task for the day from Biggie’s scroll.

However, Mercy who had just finished having her bath came out late for the reading – a situation which got Tacha upset and she began to rain insults on Mercy who was quick to insult her back.

This resulted in a heated exchange of words which later turned violent.
