THis is very similar to your past question about Ikemefuna fitting in with the family. The only thing I'll add is that Ikemefuna has a good relationship with Okonkwo's other son. Ikemefuna teaches Nwoye to make bows and arrows. This pleases Okonkwo to no end (he is not easily pleased!). Okonkwo considers Nwoye as effeminate and is glad Ikemefuna is teaching him a manly past-time.
