Mercy Eke and Ike, the couple in the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) 2019 had a heated argument that left fans unsettled.
Concise News reports that they insulted themselves during the face-off that took place after the Saturday night party.
Prior to the fight, the housemates were having a peaceful discussion about other housemates, especially Diane, who is up for eviction and was not saved by her love interest Elozonam.
Soon after, Mercy, who is also up for possible eviction, began to express her anxiety and fear of being evicted leading to exchange of words with Ike.
The argument quickly escalated and the love birds began to throw jabs at each other, threatening to end their blossoming relationship.
In the middle of the fight, Mercy told Ike that he came to the show after he had failed in America and ought to be worried about eviction.
She also told him it was a mistake to love him and later threw a plastic piece at him while the other housemates tried to settle the argument.
She said, “You will never win so long as I am in this house. Except I leave before you win. You couldn’t make it in America you think you will make it in Nigeria?
“Fool you want me to leave because I am your biggest threat.”
Ike remained calm for the most part of the fight and reassured her of his commitment after her anger had fizzled down.
He pleaded with her to give him the chance to show his love and commitment. He said, “Give me a chance. I want to love you forever.”
Expressing her insecurity, Mercy replied, “Have you ever been with a girl like me? I am used to disappointments, cheating, bad treatment, all kinds of guys but I chose to give you love.
“Have you ever been with a girl that has had sugar daddies? I am so scared.”
The lovebirds eventually settled their differences and were seen cuddling late in the night.
