Mercy and Ike’s reality TV show, What Next has taken another dimension with Ike making some serious statements like “I don’t need Mercy“, which is causing mixed reactions across the social media platforms right now.
What Next is the show to watch in order to know what’s up with the power couple and considering the turbulence in their relationship for a while now, that statement is heavily pregnant.
The statement came out of Ike when his family members comprising his favorite uncle, Charles, his aunties Cleopatra and Caro including his cousin, Prince came to his house for an emergency meeting over the drama going on on the social media about his relationship with Mercy.
His family members are of the opinion that the drama is dragging not only his integrity, but that of his family into the mud. They claimed that the issues raised on the social media by his fans and those of Mercy are not healthy for what he and his family stand for.
During the meeting, Ike’s aunty, Cleopatra said the family will not be sentimental about his relationship with Mercy and saying the truth was the best at this point.
Ike in his response said, “You are suppose to be on my side hundred per cent and cut her off. I don’t need her, that is what her family need to get in their head.” What! Ike, you must be joking with me right now, did you just say that about your in-laws to be?
There are so many insinuations that Ike has only being after Mercy’s money since they left the BBNaija house, and this insinuations were further strengthened when it was shown on What Next that he was requesting for an equal share of the 60 million naira prize she won on the show.
Ike has not also denied the fact that he deserves his request, as he stresses the part he played in Mercy’s victory plus the fact that all he wants right now is how to make some cool cash after leaving the BBNaija show.
Cleopatra also said the public, especially social media users think the Onyema family members are gold diggers, claiming that they are all after Mercy’s wealth.
The meeting did not end until Ike’s uncle, Charles said Mercy and Ike both need to turn deaf ears to what is being said on the social media and face their lives. He also called for another meeting with Mercy and some representatives from her family as well.
The big question is will Mercy attend this meeting? Is she does, what will happen during the meeting?
