Pere, who is currently among the remaining 13 housemates in the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ house, has captured many viewers’ hearts with his dramatic performance on the reality show over the last 7 weeks.

The visual artiste, who doubles as a nurse, is not a newbie in the Nollywood scenes. Asides from his role in ‘Butterflies’, Pere has featured in other Nollywood movies like ‘High Ends’, ‘Chimera’, ‘Gem of the rainforest’, and ‘Till there was you’.

He also starred in one of the editions of ‘Super Story’ titled ‘More than a friend’.
