“Take Pere and Phyna, give us Tyla” – Ikenna Onyema begs South Africans



  • Former Big Brother contestant Ike Onyema offers his colleagues Pere Egbi and Phyna to South Africans after the AFCON semi-final win.
  • Nigeria’s Super Eagles defeated South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in a fierce AFCON 2023 semi-final match.
  • The ex-partner of Mercy Eke appealed to South Africans on micro-blogging platform X following their loss at the 2023 AFCON.

After winning the AFCON semi-final, Ike Onyema, a former Big Brother Naija Pepper Dem and All Stars contestant, gives his teammates, Pere Egbi and Phyna, to South Africans.

This happened after an intense match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Bafana Bafana of South Africa during the AFCON 2023 semi-final match.

Following their defeat in the 2023 AFCON, Mercy Eke’s ex-partner resorted to the microblogging platform X to plead with South Africans.

In exchange for South Africans considering to give Nigerians their rising star singer, Tyla, he encouraged them to offer Pere Egbi, with the possibility of adding Phyna as a bonus.

Give us Tyla and take Pere Egbi. We can add Phyna,” he wrote.It is worth noting that Tyla surpassed Davido, Ayra Starr, and other Nigerian music stars to win a 2023 Grammy Award.

Since then, the BBNaija star has received backlash from Nigerians, some of whom thought the post was humorous and others of whom thought it was offensive.
