The Pepper Dem housemates seem to be facing some disagreements and conflicts, which could potentially weaken their alliance. These hiccups might be a result of differing strategies and personal clashes among them.

What might be fueling this assumption? Well, yesterday, Seyi mentioned in the diary room that he was not sure of the loyalty of some of his friends in the house. Among those mentioned were Ike, Kim Oprah, Sholzy, and Venita. Though two out of the four mentioned are houseguests, it appears Seyi has a mistrust for housemates from the Pepper Dem season. He mentioned them throwing him dirty looks and Venita making spicy comments about how brilliant he was, which shocked him.

Another Pepper Dem housemate whose actions seemed to suggest a crack in the alliance was Ike. This afternoon, Ike also had a gossip session with Doyin, where he revealed to her that his Pepper Dem compatriots, Mercy, Seyi, and Venita, had advised him to stay away from her. A statement that obviously did not sit well with Doyin. He also revealed to Sholzy that he had intentions of ruining Mercy's game plan.

Fast forward a few hours later, and Ike was in the garden speaking with Mercy about being her friend. He expressed his willingness to step up to the presumed role that Frodd had played in her life while in Biggie's house. It is difficult to determine Ike's true intentions. While he had previously admitted to wanting to ruin Mercy's game plan, his conversation with her in the garden might have been sincere. 

Early on in the season, Mercy, Seyi, and Venita had spoken about a Pepper alliance, but it seems Ike and Seyi's recent statements prove that such an alliance may not be as strong as initially thought. As the game progresses, it becomes evident that alliances in the Big Brother Naija house are constantly shifting. The uncertainty surrounding Ike's true intentions and the recent revelations from Seyi raise doubts about the stability of the Pepper alliance. With tensions rising and trust being tested, it remains to be seen if more cracks will appear among the housemates, potentially leading to a major shakeup in dynamics among the All Stars.
