Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Ike Onyema has set the record straight about a shady post which many assumed was targeted at his ex, Mercy Eke.
Kemi Filani news reported on Thursday, April 22 that Ike Onyema had subtly thrown a shade at Mercy Eke.
In a video that surfaced online, Ike Onyema had expressed his love for girls with natural backsides, and netizens considered it a shade to Mercy Eke, who had undergone butt surgery.
In another shading post targeted at her, Ike Onyema revealed that he tried changing a ‘hoe’ into housewife which he couldn’t.
As always, many assume that he was targeting his Mercy Eke and the reality star was mercilessly dragged.
Following the backlash, the singer took to his Instagram story to clear the air on his post.
He pointed out how he always keeps mute regarding assumptions and speculations but he was going to address this issue.
Ike Onyema informed the public that he still respects and cares for Mercy Eke, hence the reason he can’t shade her.
He also reminded the public that the BBN winner is still mourning the death of her father, which is another reason he can’t target her.
He clarified that his TikTok video was not a shady post as Mercy Eke still remains part of his journey.
Ike Onyema made it known to the public that the ex lovebirds have both moved on and are happy.
He added that he hopes his future posts wouldn’t be seen as a shade to his ex.
“Hey! I usually won’t say anything regarding assumptions and speculations around my post, but I think it’s high time I address this issue, especially if someone I respect and care for is being mentioned knowing fully well she’s going through a loss. My post/TikTok wasn’t in anyway to shade anyone. She was a part of my journey. We’ve both moved on and are happy. Moving forward I hope my post do not seem like a subliminal shade. Thank you”.
