Day 19: The Many Faces Of Ike

19 July 2019
Ike shows us there's more to him than his playful smile.

The Marvel villain look alike and resident in-House Gangsta has been nothing short of entertaining since he made his grand entry into the Big Brother Naija House. Known for his love for women and his predilection for mischief, Ike is everything we expect a Pepper Dem Housemate should be.

So far, Ike has given us different versions of himself and now, it's up to you to decide which Ike you are.  


Popularly called ‘Igwe Tupac’ because of his gangsta demeanour in the House, Ike swears he is about that life. We’d love to believe him, but after seeing him burst into tears after being called to order by Seyi, we are not entirely sure what to believe and from your comments, it seems you all aren't entirely sure what to believe either.

Oh well, gangstas do cry. 


The ease with which he sweets talk his way into the hearts of the Pepper Dem ladies is why he earns himself the prestigious title of a smooth operator. Known for his playa antics, he has been able to win the heart of the delectable Mercy and both have earned themselves the ‘couple goals’ tag with the nickname ‘Merike’. His antics for juggling multiple hearts had Mercy and Ella going at each other in a classic case of “The boy is mine.” We don’t know what it is about him the ladies find irresistible.  Is it his voice laced with a heavy American accent or his sweet charming ways?

The Coin Bandit

"I’ll beg, hustle or steal to get this money.

Rumour has it that he might have been responsible for Omashola’s missing Bet9ja Coins, although he did put up a great show tearing up and throwing a tantrum after the Coins were stolen to possibly throw off suspicion. A stunt that nearly cost him his place in the House. Luckily for him, he got a Strike instead.

No matter the antic he puts up or whichever version of him we see, we are sure we will be entertained. As he celebrates his birthday, here’s hoping he never runs out of entertaining shenanigans.
