Hermes Chibueze Iyele,

September 29, (THEWILL) – Evicted BBNaija Level Up housemate, Hermes Chibueze Iyele, has stated he and his siblings were named after gods.

The performing artist, during one of his post-eviction interviews, said his father named all four of them after different gods.

He declared that ‘Hermes’ is not a stage name, but what his father gave him at birth.

“My father named us four after gods. My two brothers are Akhnaton and Kuthumi, while my sister is Isis. Hermes is my real name”, he said.

Hermes is an Olympian deity in ancient Greek religion and mythology. Hermes is considered the herald of the gods.

He is also considered the protector of human heralds, travellers, thieves, merchants, and orators.

He is able to move quickly and freely between the worlds of the mortal and the divine, aided by his winged sandals.

Hermes plays the role of the psychopomp or “soul guide”, a conductor of souls into the afterlife.

Akhenaten, also spelt Akhenaton, Akhnaton, or Ikhnaton, also called Amenhotep IV, Greek Amenophis, was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh.
