Full Name: Hermes Chibueze Iyele
Performance artist Hermes counts basketball, public speaking and American flag football as some of his interests.
He has had the opportunity to perform some of his original dance pieces at reputable festivals in Lagos, Glasgow and Rotterdam, and has also appeared in music videos for afrobeats stars including Burna Boy, Davido and Ajebo Hustlers.
Hermes believes that being in a polyamorous relationship with two women has given everyone in it the opportunity to develop both personally and as a unit. Honesty is one of his favourite qualities. I’m a truth-teller, but over the years I’ve learned that many people don’t particularly like viewpoints they disagree with, so I tell the truth delicately, he adds.
Why does Big Brother Naija live in a house? “I’d like to demonstrate to everyone how much the love and creativity developed in such cramped living conditions can transform the planet and advance humanity.”
