Ike in an exclusive interview with talked with Pulse about the present BBnaija Lockdown housemates and the exposure the reality TV show gives housemates.
Ike found love in the previous edition of BBNaija in Mercy eke who later won the show last year is still yet to see a bargirl/boy and made it clear he enjoyed his BBNaija pepper dem housemates but the present BBNaija Lockdown housemates are exciting and interesting to watch.
He said ..
“Definitely I had fun with my set. Number one because of Mercy. It hasn’t been that long yet and I don’t want to over judge them but, like I said, they’re too soft. I have not seen anyone with that fire yet; I don’t see anyone causing trouble. The first week in that house I caused quite a bit of drama. If I was in this house by now, I would have turned it upside down.The worst thing about it is the fact that I think Big Brother is a social experiment and it opens you up as a housemate to all of Nigeria, Africa and maybe the whole world, and they are watching you for 24 hours and three months, judging everything you do from sneezing, coughing, cleaning and so on. So when you come out of the house, you realise that the judging will continue and that might be the worst thing because it’s still the same thing outside the house, so it’s like there is no way around, as I have seen. No matter what you do, those same fans who were talking about you in the house will still talk about you outside the house.”Watching it brings back so much nostalgia. I mean I think about my time in the house a lot but I will say I like it more now as a viewer because when you are in the house, there is just so much pressure and mind games. You are thinking, ‘What is the next person thinking? How do I stay in the house much longer? Am I entertaining the viewers? Am I doing what they like?’ But outside the house, it is like a family show to me. I just sit back, relax and enjoy. During sad moments, I am like ‘’awwn.’ Even the moment they all sat together to address the issue of food fight, I was like, ‘Wow, it is very entertaining for me now’ but while I was in the house not so much. It was more like a business transaction and I was just trying to make sure that it goes well but now it is good watching from this side.”
Ike has gone into photography and now lives in Lagos since the show ended, he also has reality to show with girlfriend Mercy Eke.
