Early Life

Ike Onyema (born July 19, 1992). He was brought up in Houston, Texas. He balances his time between Maryland, Lagos, and Houston, Texas.

Ike, as he is affectionately known, was living in Texas when Hurricane Harvey, a devastating Category 4 hurricane that made landfall in Texas and Louisiana in August 2017, destroyed everything he owned, including his business and flat.


Ike Onyema was a model before auditioning for the fourth season of the well-known BBNaija reality TV show in 2019.

Ike Onyema On the 2019 BBNaija show

Ike was one of the 26 housemates who participated in the “Pepper Dem”-themed fourth season of BBNaija in 2019. He was renowned for being boisterous, humorous, and carefree on the show.

Ike became great friends with Mercy Eke, a fellow resident who went on to win the competition during his time there. Over time, their friendship developed into a romantic one, the season’s hottest relationship in the BBNaija house. Due to their union, the hashtag “MerIke” began to trend on numerous social media platforms.

One of the BBNaija couples, Ike Onyema and Mercy Eke, can maintain their romance by exchanging house kisses and smooches without engaging in complete intimacy. Ike Onyema claimed it would have happened between him and Mercy but held off since Mercy didn’t push hard enough to get him moving. They successfully won further sub-competitions on the programme, such as the Munch It Challenge, which offered a cash reward of N1 million and an in-house supper.

In the thirteenth week, Ike Onyema was eliminated from the 2019 BBNaija Pepper Dem competition. At the end of the season, Mercy Eke was declared the champion. Outside of the BBNaija house, the pair continued their friendship. They also got a reality TV gig called “Mercy and Ike” that will focus on their romance. The programme debuted on April 26, 2020, on Africa Magic. Ike Onyema has refused to accept credit for getting his big break on BBNaija. At the beginning of this year, he bragged on Instagram that he was a “big man” before BBNaija.

Personal Life

Ike Onyema attracted notice for his romance with Mercy Eke, another Big Brother Naija competitor. In Season 4 of the programme Pepper Dem Gang, Ike, and Mercy Eke took part.

They made a public announcement of their breakup during the reunion show, but their relationship finally came to an end.

Ike believes that “we only live once,” so he loves to enjoy life to the fullest and seize possibilities for pleasure. Even though he can be boisterous and colourful sometimes, Ike claims he despises talkative people.

Ike Onyema’s Relationship With Mercy Eke

Ike Onyema and Mercy appear to be working hard to strengthen their relationship, despite allegations that everything is not as perfect as it seems.

Over the months, their relationship has experienced its fair share of drama, including when they stopped following one other on social media and Mercy’s Instagram announcement of her single status. Another controversy occurred when images of Ike Onyema posing alongside Mercy’s adversary Tacha surfaced online.

However, the couple claimed they are still together and even suggested a marriage proposal towards the end of the first season of their reality TV show, “Mercy and Ike.” Ike admitted during the first episode of the show that he hopes to get married to Mercy.

According to speculations, Mercy Eke is seeing someone other than Ike Onyema. Mercy’s 27th birthday party is where the rumors started to circulate, but they have yet to be proven.

Internet trolls claim that Ike has very little chance of marrying Mercy Eke due to his lack of financial means compared to her genuine partner, who showered her with presents for her 27th birthday, including the Range Rover SUV she received.


He is 31 years of age. Born on July 19, 1992.
