Ike said he did not make a move on Mercy with the intention of rekindling their relationship because often times ex-lovers reunion don’t end well.

On what people have been saying since he left the show, he said that he’s been hearing people call him ‘Queen Maker’ repeatedly.

He said; “I didn’t rekindle my relationship with Mercy in the just concluded Big Brother Naija All Stars season because we are better off as friends. At least for me, I always feel like when you go back to an ex, you might not always get what you want.”

Meanwhile, in another news…

Weeks ago, Mercy Eke said she would love to show true love to her colleague, White Money because he deserved her love more than Kiddwaya and Pere.

She stated this in the house while having a chat with Cross and Pere as she had expressed doubts that her relationship with her mystery boyfriend will continue when she leaves the house.

Cross said: If your boyfriend has left you that means it is between WhiteMoney and Pere.

Mercy replied: It is between only White Money, Pere no dey

Then Pere said: White Money does not stand a chance.

Mercy continued: White Money will take care of me. His own was seamless, I could feel it, I felt it, that is the thing. I was doing some bad things…even the first time I kissed Kidd he let it go, and they said I kissed Pere, I looked at White Money and I was like “me self what is doing me”, he still held me down.

He did not judge me and he still believes in us and that is it for me. If it is other guys they would have gone. I think he deserves my love and I am ready to show him a part of me I did not show him because we were in this house.
