Mercy and Ike are at the height of their fame right now. Being two of the most popular Big Brother Naija contestants with multiple lucrative promotion deals and millions of followers on the Internet, they are very lucky to have each other and go through all these things together.

At the same time, being a couple in love in the public eye is guaranteed to take its toll on the relationship. To an outsider, it may seem like having the whole country watch your romance develop is the best thing in the world, but in reality, this experience can be exhausting for everyone and negatively affect the relationship.

This is exactly what we are about to see in MercyXIke. The couple decided to give their fans an insight into the life of two beautiful and popular people in love. The viewers will see not only the good, but also the bad – this is exactly why it’s called a reality show.

At the moment, it is not clear how many episodes the show will have or how often new episodes will come out. It appears that MercyXIke has been already shot in full, which means the production is unlikely to be affected by COVID-19. There is also a chance that the producers of the show will make it available on other platforms for viewers who do not have a DStv subscription.
