The 91days in the Big Brother house came to an end on Sunday, August 5, 2012 with South Africa's Keagan being crowned the winner.
Six finalists were battling it out for the top prize with Uganda inclusive. IK roared and Wati was out of Biggie's house but before he could get on stage Naeto C hit the stage with 10 over 10.
The fifth housemate to get out of the Big Brother House was none other than Kyle from Uganda deflating many Ugandan fans who had hoped that having made it to day 91, he could bring the money home, Africa had different plans for the night.
IK swung into action with the third housemate to leave the house and this was Talia who by the way is very close to Keagan and having won the money, Seydou stands no chance. As Biggie did the count down for her to leave the house, Keagan gave her push to the the exit gate and the two kissed, he promised to meet her on stage.
Lady May was the next housemate to leave the stage. She came on stage cat-walking in her costume as though she was heading for a creative dance. One fan was looking at her in a weird manner, she pulled the mic from IK and said ''Hi to the guy who looks like he wants to beat me up."
Our very own Navio hit the stage making Uganda proud with 'My One & Only' which kind of brought a smile on Ugandans who were still nursing Kyle's eviction. D-Banj was the next performer doing 'Oliver Twist' before we got to the most tensed up moment of the show.
IK crossed to Keagan to say his last words and Keagan thanked Africa for having kept him in the house for this long. The show then crossed to the Kenyan rapper Prezzo who was dressed like a President, he revealed to Africa that he had never watched the show before, not been head of house but managed to be in the house for that long, Thank you Africa, said Prezzo.
It was at this point that IK announced the winner of the Big Brother StarGame as Keagan from South Africa. Like it was the case last year when many thought Luclay could win, even in this case, many seemed surprised that Keagan could actually beat Prezzo.
Keagan got 7 votes, Prezzo and Lady May and Talia all got 2 votes while Kyle and Wati got 1 vote each.
Its the final week for the Big Brother Africa reality show and next Sunday we will be able to know who walks away with the top prize. All the six housemates in the house are finalists and are competing against each other for the top prize of USD 300,000.
In their first diary session as finalists, Big Brother gave them assignments which require a housemate to act, talk and carry on their chores like its the other person. In this particular case, Namibia's Lady May was told to emulate South Africa's Keagan.
Apparently, what has failed her is the talking. On a few occasions, she has tried to bring out the 'Indian accent' but it has failed her so in the end she is just laughing her head off. On the other hand, Talia was told to act like Wati, all she has done so far was to strum the guitar.
The task will go on till tomorrow but we hope a war does not erupt between these two if Keagan gets to know it that Lady May is trying act just like him, he will erupt like a volcano.
With 21 days left before they crown the winner of the Big Brother Africa Stargame, Nigeria's Goldie could not believe that she was out of the Big Brother house as she was in tears all through her interview on the Big Brother stage.
The Sunday live show kicked off with Winky D from Zimbabwe doing his thing. Lady May, Prezzo, Kyle and Goldie were the housemates up for eviction and at the end of the show Goldie from Nigeria was sent packing.
The show crossed to lovers Junia and Malonza who were evicted the previous week. Junia said that the fight with Keagan taught her that she can actually fight back and added that what they have with Malonza is beautiful to which Malonza said that he was happy with the developments.
The show then crossed to the house for Keagan to reveal to fellow housemates on what transpired in the diary session when he was called to save and replace. Keagan revealed to other housemates that it was Kyle who was told to place his bags to the store room immediately.
The show then crossed to Prezzo + Goldie aka (PREGO) highlights of the bad times and the good times in which Prezzo referred Goldie to an African Queen coupled with lyrics which had a lot of lines reflecting on their love in the house.
It was not long before sexy queen dancers hit the stage rocking their yellow thighs on stage leaving the audience to go wild at the end of their well coordinated dance patterns.
Mr. Dondolo delivered the results to IK in a sealed envelope as Kyle wrapped the Ugandan flag around himself. IK called Lady May's name first and she was told that she was safe.. Kyle was called next nad the amazing news on Biggie was that he was safe.
Goldie had now lost her voice but this was the time to break the PREGO alliance and that was none other than Nigeria's Goldie Prezzo gave her a push to the gate and asked for a hug, which Goldie thought about before unleashing a hug with no feelings and no kiss to go with it.
While on stage IK asked Goldie about their relationship with Kenyan rapper Prezzo and she said that;"........" Goldie who came crying on stage with her scary eye lashes could not believe she had left Prezzo for the likes of Uganda's Jannette in the house.
When showing her highlights which included her crying, Goldie just kept on crying but her being nominated by Keitta made her sob like a baby and her reason was because they were both from West Africa, she thought they had an alliance.
Goldie was next week' s Head of House but all that has now been put to waste.
Kyle, Jannette, Malonza and Alex were the last lot that were smuggled from the Downville house to Upville but a day later Kyle was put on the chopping block making life very difficult for him.
While they were in the Downville house, the Ugandan ball never romanced with the random nominating machine but in the Upville house, things are biting for the Ugandan lad.
In the just concluded eviction, Junia and Malonza were evicted and unfortunately for him, he learnt of his fate the very day he was leaving.Keagan who was the Head of House swapped himself for Malonza and in the end he was evicted.
Keagan is again the Head of House for the second week in a row and this time he replaced himself with our boy Kyle. This is how Kyle got himself on the chopping block and will be tussling it out with the First Golden lady and the President of the house from Kenya, Prezzo and Lady May.
Meanwhile, Lady May beat them all with the 8 votes to go on the chopping block. Africa might be in love with the gal from Namibia but in the house, it's a different story! Kyle is now faced with a tough combination of (Prezzo+Goldie) and Lady May.
In last week's eviction results Prezzo got the Kenyan and the Tanzanian vote while Kyle got the Ugandan vote and the Malawian vote. Its not very good news when Prezzo and Kyle face Africa on the same ticket bearing in mind that they are both yearning for the East African Vote.
Uganda's Kyle is safe after Malonza and Junia fell the victims of the night when Africa decided that they go home.
Malonza from Kenya was casually dressed and did not have a clue that he was going home. On announcing that he was leaving the house, Junia broke down. IK asked him about Junia and he said they were special friends.
He was asked about Uganda's Jannette and the Kenyan lad said he was friends with benefits when it came to her. In his highlights, there was more of him kissing with Junia.
IK bounced back to the house and told the ladies Lady May, Junia and Goldie to stand. Lady May was told that she is not leaving the house leaving Goldie and Junia waiting for their fate.
Namibia's Junia was the next housemate to be evicted. This was more than a welcome move bearing in mind that a few minutes back she was in tears after her 'boyfriend' Malonza was evicted.
Asked if she was willing to mingle with Malonza, she said may be. Junia came on stage with no shoes. Junia told Africa that she has no beef with Jannette. They can now have some quality time with no Biggie cameras trailing them.
Ardent lovers of the show just can't stop watching it every time it starts screening. Every season has its own characters some come onto the show for a short while and leave a lasting impact, others stay on the game for the entire 91 days, but you can hardly remember them. Below we bring you some of the characters who still linger on in our minds:
Bertha - Her strategy was the bible. She had the character of a God fearing person, but after sometime, she gave it up and abandoned her bed too only to jump into a male housemate's bed.
Richard B - This housemate from Tanzania was deeply in love with Angola's Tatiana and the could sort themselves out as and when they felt like. Richard at one time was kissing Tatiana while his other hand was working on Ofunneka of Nigeria. This made Africa roar and since then a number of things have changed on show including moving the shower hour to the exclusive version.
Meryl - She was beautiful and had the booty and was not scared of flaunting it. It was during their season that shower hour was at its peak and she could bare her whole for Africa to see. She was given a second chance in the Big Brother All Stars, though she did not win the money but at least she won a Man who happens to be none other than Tanzania's Mwisho. They are married and have just had their first child.
Gaetano - He was the first housemate to rock in the sheets while the whole of Africa watched, since then most housemates have made this a must happen given a chance to feature in Biggie's house. He is also one housemate who has benefited greatly from the post show fame.
Ola - The Nigerian Housemate in the Big Brother Stargame was a threat right from the time he joined the house. No housemate since Big Brother Africa inception beats his physique height and weight and chances are, this is what blew the judges away. Its however, not clear if the tricks he used to have an impact on the show in the 14 days are the very ones that made him succumb to pressure and eventually quit the show prematurely.
Munya - He came close to taking the grand prize but missed it as there is always one winner at least for their versions of the show. He even had a chance to go another house in Europe for only 48 hours, but he was able to leave an impact on the female housemates in that house. Regarding the missing of the grand prize, he even beat the overall winner in their year. The winner got USD200,000, but President Mugabe of Zimbabwe plus other businessmen contributed USD 300,000 for him.
Uti - He represented his country Nigeria and along the way, his father passed on and the following conditions were open to him: He either went to bury his dad and never returned to the house, or he stayed in the house to the time he could be evicted or play the game till the last day. He Decided to stay in the house and not go for the funeral of his dad, in the end he won.
Mildred - She is a Ghanaian artist and joined the Big Brother House with her model boy friend Keitta. They are the first official couple to be in the Big Brother House and had it not been for Mildred's eviction, it would have been a different story for now as far as their relationship is concerned. She was the first housemate to go on strike and not appear on the Big Brother stage and the reason behind her action was stemming from a Brazillian hair extension.
Kyle and Jannette are the Ugandan representatives in the Big brother Stargame together with Kenya's Alex and Malonza who were delivered to the Upville house. This was after Nafy and Tamara were evicted while Wati and Talia upgraded to the Upville house.
Seconds into the Upville house, The four housemates were delivered to Upville in a box marking the end of Downville and Upville being the official Big Brother House with all housemates playing as individuals.
Unfortunately for the smuggled Downvillers who found themselves to the Upville house by default, they were not as lucky as Talia and Wati who are safe from eviction this week following their being saved by Africa on Sunday.
On Monday, it was nominations in the Upville house and not the random nomination machine which had ended with the Downville house. Lady May came out with 5 nominations followed by Uganda's Kyle with 3 nominations and Keagan who is the Head of House, Prezzo, Goldie, and Junia all had 2 nominations.
South Africa's Keagan replaced himself with Kenya's Malonza. Meanwhile, Prezzo is officially done with with Goldie because he nominated her and yet she saved him a few days back. This week, Kyle, Malonza, Prezzo, Goldie, Lady May and Junia are up for possible eviction. Start voting for your favorite housemate now!.
South Africa's Keagan and Namibia's Junia were upgraded to the Upville house as Lee and Jessica were evicted during the Sunday live eviction show.
Lee and Keagan from South Africa, Jessica and Junia were up for eviction last week. Uganda's Jannette was IK's favorite for the week and when asked what her chances for the games was, she said she was going to win.
Junia and Jessica looked beautiful with their hair styles and were the first ones to leave the Downville house. Uganda's Kyle hugged Jessica so tight that he did not want to leave her.
They eventually hit the stage and IK started off with Junia. How much do u love Keagan? We do like each other, Junia replied. She was asked if she kept track of how many people she had kissed in the house? Junia said Lee, Ola and Malonza and she was reminded that Alex was on that list too.
She confessed that she likes Malonza very much and they will remain friends. She was asked about her beef with Jannette, and to this she said there was no beef.
The show then crossed to Jessica. IK told her of how they were amazed with how they kept it real. How do you feel about Luke? It's real between me and luke, Liberia here I come, she said. She was also asked about her beef with Jannette. She said Jannette got up to her nerves last night and at one time she asked fellow housemates to take Jannette away before she could beat her up.
The viewers have decided to keep one of you in the house and that is Junia just like we told you in our last posting. Jessica was evicted but instead of going to Namibia, she decided to go to Liberia to catch up with Luke whom she met three days in the house and they kicked off with steamy moments.
Junia in Upville
Junia met the Upvillers who seemed so quiet and she wondered whether it's always that quiet in the house. Its not until she met Maneta and later Keitta that she felt home which could be their home for the next 49 days.
Lea and Keagan live the Downville House
Lea and Keagan, please leave the house, IK roared as Tanzania's AY came back to the stage doing 'Money'
The South African pair hit the stage sending the audience in wild cheers. Keagan who had a great time in the house coupled with fighting in the house with Junia was asked about it and he said there was nothing serious.
They asked him about Jannette and the SA dude said Jannette is too small.
IK crossed to Lee and asked about the game in the jacuzzi with Junia to which he said was a truth and dare game and he did that to survive.
Lee was evicted and Keagan was upgraded to Upville. There will be nominations in the Upville house tomorrow though Keagan and Junia won't be part of this nominations. Keep it locked.
It is now 34 days out of 91 when the Big Brother show started showing on channel 198 for those exclusive to DSTV.
In the past it used to be one housemate per country and the game was so interesting and so competitive. The game later changed to bringing in more than one housemate per country and this is where Biggie plays his tricks.
In this season for example, he introduced the VIP section which had seven housemates and its those countries that had three housemates in total representing their respective countries.
Lets take a look at how those countries are fairing after a month in the house.
Nigeria - Ola, Chris and Goldie came into the house on the Nigerian ticket but just after 14 days, Ola succumbed to hyper tension and could not play the game anymore. Ola and Chris were in Downville where they play the game as pairs, so the two had to leave. Nigeria now has Goldie in the Upville house who is busy nursing a broken heart after Prezzo told her they were only friends.
South Africa - Lea and Keagan are in the Downville house while model Barbz is doing well in the Upville where she has also been HOH. However, the Indian accent for the Downville folks is not making things any better. Keagan's bad temper after he has taken just one bottle makes him better off playing the game from Southville.
Namibia - All hopes for Namibia are on Lady May as the Downvillers, Junia and Jessica are only trying. Some Big Brother pundits have started putting the money on Lady May who is next weeks HOH. Jessica has not got much to bring to the table apart from her making out with Luke from Liberia if it is anything to go by.
Ghana - They were blessed with a VIP placement in the Upville house when comedian DKB got to the house but his strategy of fighting was a complete off that even if he was not disqualified, he would still be evicted because that CV was not good per say. Some fans say he is better off trying boxing or wrestling because, housemates and viewers were not able to detect any humour in him.
Two days before his disqualification, Ghana had fallen a victim after Mildred Ashong aka Eazzy who is now battling with fans on whether she had sex on telly or not, got evicted as her boyfriend Keitta was upgraded to Upville.
Kenya - No doubt Kenya is doing very well through their rapper boy Prezzo who is also East Africa's hope in the game now that the Tanzania duo of Julio and Hilda were evicted and the Ugandans are still in the Downville house. Alex and Malonza who are the other Kenyans in the Downville house are friends with our gal Jannette and this could work in her favour when she is up for possible upgrade to the Upville.
Zambia - Mampi was the first Upviller to be evicted that her thunder dance tactic did very little in saving her. Mampi was a dancer and her fans really enjoyed her but then again, she was a lot better than the Downvillers, Tamara and Talia. Talia is doing badly after her boyfriend Seydou from Angola left the show.
Zimbabwe - Maneta and Teclar were the two sisters playing the game from Downville to the time when Maneta was upgraded to Upville where she met fellow country mate Rocki. Maneta was nominated by Rocki but then Africa said 'NO' and she bounced back to the house. She is one housemate who has been up for eviction in both Downville and Upville but came out stronger.
The winner for the $300,000 will come from the above countries as the rest are just filling the gaps.
Liberia's Luke was evicted last Sunday but realizing that he was up for eviction he knew that his chances of remaining in Biggie's house had dwindled. The guy who cried like a baby when Ola and Chris opted out of the game used every minute in the house tactfully.
These two have always been sharing a bed but with nothing serious going on except for the simple touching and kissing. The night before the eviction, Luke and his 'girl friend' Jessica timed when most housemates were asleep and the two started touching and kissing.
It's not clear what happened to Luke but within two minutes, the guy was done. Jessica did not waste anytime but just got to the drivers seat and tried sorting herself out but wapi the guy was done.
It was 17 days into the show that even the first official couple to get into the house has not yet thought about what these strangers had just served themselves with before the watchful eyes of Africa.
Nigeria's Ola is having health complications and therefore can't proceed with the show and since they are downville housemates, they play the game as one so if one is leaving it means both have to go.
They revealed to Biggie during the diary session that due to health reasons, Ola has to leave. Biggie told them that they were highly rated and he will certainly miss them. He asked them to go and inform fellow housemates.
They called everyone to the lounge. Ola called Zainab before he could reveal to the housemates why they had been called. Zainab danced to the tune that Ola sung wiggling her waist.
Seydou the doctors have found out that I have high blood pressure...so I have to go a proper check outside the house. Im leaving the show today.He called Seydou and Zainab and asked them to make up as they hugged.
Junia(Namibia) was lost as she could not understand what was going on. She was seen wiping her tears moments later as Chris and Ola hugged the rest of the housemates. Jessica, Mildred and Dalphin were crying.
Uganda's Kyle said taht this house can never be the same as he was reacting to the news of the Naija botys leaving the house. Ola was a big threat on the show and within the first three days, many had started looking at him as the over all winner of the grand prize.
Nigeria is now left with one housemate Goldie in the Upville house who is very close to Prezzo from Kenya.
As you may be aware, there are two houses in the Big Brother house, Upville and Downville. Upville has only seven celebrity starmates who were unveiled to Africa days before the show kicked off.
Downville has 26 housemates and that is where the Ugandan housemates Kyle and Jannette are trying out their luck. Since the show kicked off, Big Brother has been trailing Lady May from Namibia.
At least in the last so many hours, our resident experts have been monitoring Biggie's actions and noticed that the Camera focusing on the Upville starmates have more footage compared to the other VIPs.
It even became worse after the Monday morning shower hour. The other housemates in the Upville house are; Goldie-(Nigeria), Mampi-(Zambia), Prezzo-(Kenya), Barbz-(South Africa), DKB-(Ghana), Roki-Zimbabwe.
Meanwhile, Nigeria is once again turning out to be favoured as though the past two wins were not enough. It is among the seven countries with 3 housemates and yet the Upville housemates Chris and Ola are already playing the game so well.
After the VIPs had gone to the house the show crossed to the Downville housemates who also happened to be couples ranging from friends, lovers, brothers and sisters.
Angola - They've been friends for three years. They are very good friends and the gal says he is single. They want to be themselves.
Botswana - Eve and Edith - They have no strategy they are just going to be themselves and they promise not to do the illegal stuff.
Ghana - Mildred and Keitta have been together for a year and half. Mildred got attracted to Keitta because he is calm. They say their affair is complicated with a lot of differences. They however contradicted themselves during the auditions.
Kenya - Alex and Malonza(Brothers)
Liberia - Luke and Yadel have been friends for 8 years but they are not dating and they have partners outside the house. She says that he loves the ladies and will have at least 3 ladies in the house.
Malawi - Afe and Wa (Cousins) - One of the is single and the other si not.
Namibia - Jescia and Junior (Friends) - They say they love each other and when IK asked them why they had to chose each other, they seemed not to have an answer.
Nigeria - Chris and Ola(Not even friends) - They are ready to emulate their predecessors who won the previous seasons.
South Africa - Keagan and Lee - The gals in the audience were pretty excited about these ones.
Sierra Leone - Dalphin and Zainab - These gals have been friends for seven years and it is the first time Sierra Leone is being represented on the Big Brother Africa show.
Tanzania - Hilda and Julio met when they were still kids and they are not dating, have supportive partners outside the house.
Uganda - Jaenette and Kyle - Not friends with benefit and the gal says not now but may be later.
Zambia - Born of the same mother and different fathers.
Zimbabwe - Maneta and Teclar - Not sure of whether they are dating. The housemates from all over Africa made their way to the house and the action in the house now begins.
IK and our very own Flavia Tumusiime got the ball rolling with IK wondering why they should not introduce him as James Bond before J.Cole who was performing in Africa for the first time hit the stage.
Flavia announced that 14 couples will be in the Downville house and will not nominate each other. The show then crossed to Big Brother highlights around the world revealing 87 countries and 346 housemates.
VIP Upville House - This will be housing the seven starmates who were already introduced to Africa earlier on.
Upville Housemates - DKB From Ghana was the first VIP to enter the followed by Prezzo from Kenya. Lady May from Namibia, Goldie from Nigeria, Barbz from South Africa and Mampi from Zambia was called but she was delayed. Rocki from Zimbabwe walked on stage with a swagg.
DKB will slap you if you slap him was asked if he was going to be faithful, he said he will be very faithful to Big brother but not his wife.
Prezzo from Kenya who was born to be an entertainer promises to be himself and has no strategy. he came dressed in Masai swagg. He says his fans will have a cool 91 days to see him.
Lady May from Namibia is unstopable once on stage and once she wins, she wants to buy a house because she is tired of paying rent. She came with a drum as her lover.
Goldie from Nigeria - No one can love you better than yourself, so she will love herself for the 91 days.
Barbz from South Africa - The model with serious curves was the next to be unveiled and she promises to be sexy.
Musician Mampi from Zambia - Told off IK he is engaged and she assured Africa that she will survive Africa.
Rocky from Zimbabwe - Breakdance is his strategy to win the USD300,000. They got to the house and they seemed to like what they saw.
The Big Brother Africa family is growing and it continues to grow with Meryl and Mwisho who hooked up in the house having their first child. Meryl gave birth to a bouncing baby girl on Monday.
Meryl and Mwisho held their engagement party in the Big Brother house which was seen by over 40 African countries. Meryl has shocked many fans as looking at the way she was playing her game, many dod not expect them to come this far.
They have both had two chances at the Big Brother game and come out without the money but at least they have something out of Big Brother talk of finding love in a hopeless place, said a fan.
Mwisho first appeared in BBA1 and Meryl was a contestant in BBA2 if you remember those days when the game only had 12 housemates and each week saw one leaving the house. Big Brother came up with another twist of bringing back those contestants who had graced the show before. This is how Meryl and Mwisho hooked up.
In total we now have three official Big Brother couples who are Quinn and Jenipher, Kevin and Elizabeth and now Meryl and Mwisho. All the couples have a child at least.
Meanwhile, BBA7 promises even more fire because housemates are all paired...so in most cases there won't be any waiting now that the housemates would be familiar with each other's whateverrrr!
This will come as good news to the fans of Mwisho and Meryl after it turned out that Meryl had succumbed to a live kick from Tanzania's Mwisho. Meryl had initially scared off some of her fans when she was close to Sheila Kwamboka from Kenya.
Meryl's current condition will now put all those fears to rest as the couple looks forward to parenthood. They will also be holding their wedding later in the year to supplement the engagement ceremony they had during the Big Brother Africa 5 house.
At the time when their affair kicked off Meryl was moving out with a Namibian celebrity and Mwisho was dating two girls at the same time.
Mwisho first appeared in the Big Brother Africa 1 version while Meryl appeared in the Big Brother Africa 2 version. These were the times of shower hour with Meryl and Uganda's Maureen on full display the moment Biggie announced that it was shower hour.
They then bounced back in the Big Brother Africa 5 otherwise dubbed All Stars where they hooked up and steamy moments kicked off. This will not be the first official Big Brother Africa couple as Quinn and Jennifer are expecting their first child.
Bernadina, Zeus and Mumba were the victims of the Sunday night live eviction show leaving behind ten housemates with two weeks to the final line. Bernadina was the first one to be called out of the house.
As Biggie reminded her of being left with only 30 seconds to leave the Big Brother house, she was saying this was the happiest moment of her life. On stage, they showed her the highlights while she was in the house and those who nominated her.
Initially she thought Vimbai was one of those who had nominated her but in the end it was Hanni and Luclay. She threw her fuse at Luclay which was one houmsemate not communicate with their relatives.
IK bounced back to the house for the second eviction and this happened to be none other than Zeus from Botswana. On calling his name he told fellow housemates how he was going home coupled with singing the I'm coming home track. Zeus broke down after yesterday's Saturday dance wondering how those close to him will interpret his relationship with Nigeria's Karen in the house.
They showed him his highlights in the house which included the popular photo scene of him holding the firm boobs of Ghana's Confidence. Apart from Karen, Mumba, Wendall, Hanni, Luclay, Sharon and Vimbai nominated him. He threw his fuse to Wendall from Zimbabwe.
IK appeared to the housemates for the third time. He called out Mumba and Lomwe and asked them to stand. IK called out Mumba's name and kept it right there without saying a word for some seconds as Lomwe showed all signs of discomfort...to the time when IK told Mumba to leave the house as she had been evicted.
Mumba was the last housemate to leave the house on Sunday. Her fuse was one housemate to walk backwards for one week and this unfortunately went to endowed Otono who had already got a fuse from Bernadina of not being able to communicate with his relatives.
Meanwhile, during the show Zimbabwe's Vimbai was dressed in a towel as though she was heading for a bath tub simply because she was last week's head of House and therefore not worried of leaving the house given it's immunity status. Tomorrow, the housemates will be nominating each other and the housemates who poll as the highest will be up for possible eviction.
How Africa voted:
Bernadina: 1 Vote – Namibia - Her country
Zeus: 2 Votes – Botswana and South Africa.
Mumba: 3 Votes – Zimbabwe, Zambia and Angola.
Vina: 4 Votes – Nigeria, Ethiopia, Rest of Africa and Ghana.
Lomwe: 5 Votes – Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Mozambique
Yesterday was eviction night and Sharon had been up for eviction but out of the five who were up for eviction, only two survived of which Sharon was one of them and the other was Karen.
On Monday, housemates were busy nominating each other and in the end Nigeria's Vina, Bernadina from Namibia, Mumba from Ghana Zeus and Lomwe got the highest votes in terms of nominations.
Mumba was not on that list but she got herself there when the current Head of House, Vimbai saved Wendall and replaced him with Zambia's Mumba. Karen's move of not swapping with anyone has again paid off because many thought that since Vimbai and Karen have not been on good terms after Karen massaged Wendall's back, she could use this as a pay back, besides in the previous weeks, Vimbai could always nominate Karen.
Sharon has equally survived this one so this means that she is still in the game for at least two weeks bearing in mind that the game still has only three weeks to go. 13 Housemates have so far left the house and 13 are still in the house.
This coming Sunday, one of these housemates Vina, Bernadina, Mumba, Zeus and Lomwe will be going home.. So start saving your favourite housemate.
The Headmates are at it again faced with the eviction fever and this time around our Sharon O is on the chopping board with four others who include Michael from Mozambique, who has been very instrumental in making Sharon say a word, Confidence from Ghana, Bernadina from Namibia and Vina from Nigeria.
It is the second time for Confidence to be up for eviction though the first time was not that easy for her. Michael and Confidence were discussing about how surprising it was for Hanni and Bernadina to appear on the chopping board and little did he know that Vimbai(HoH) had saved Hanni and replaced her with him (Michael).
The previous version of Big Brother winner Uti Nwachukwu is drumming up support for Vina clearly making her safe from this eviction and Nigeria still has a good game going so far because both housemates are still in unlike Namibia which has one housemate.
Uganda still has two housemates but it is as though there is only one housemate. It is not a common thing seeing cameras focusing on Sharon and even when they do, the beauty is quiet. Now it is not clear if she will get out of this but the best folks should do for now is to vote saving Sharon because the housemate with the least votes will certainly come back home on Sunday, May 29, 2011.
Below are some of the comments from Biggies wall :
Sarah Charity: "Confidence out n sharoooooooooonn O innnnnnnnnnn. haters go n die."
Mmoloki Tshireletso: ?"@Sarah...sorry It's not our fault, u can tell Sharon is not Afrika's favorite."
Slie Gazu-Dladla:"Why is Sharon O crying she has to go! She's full of herself mnxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxm"
It's now very clear Sharon needs your support though it will be very sad if a housemate from Mozambique or Namibia leaves because they are being represented by one housemate each.
The first housemate to be evicted from the Big Brother Amplified was Jossy Joss from Namibia who scored the least votes out of the six housemates who were up for eviction.
The Nambian housemate entered the Big Brother game by accident but his leaving has surely not been accidental now that he hates cleaning and has been quiet for the last two weeks.
During the live show, IK started off by asking Confidence if they had resolved their differences with Vimbai and the Big sister said yes and all that is now history.
The six housemates who were up for eviction, four were female housemates(Confidence, Vina, Weza, Vimbai) and they indeed impressed Africa so Biggie asked them back to the house while Danny(Ethiopia) and Jossy Joss were the last two standing.
This is Biggie's game and so he makes the rules. Danny got more votes than Jossy Joss, so he was sent to the Tails house where Lotus was more than happy to receive him. She jumped on him with legs wide open and moments later unleashed a glass of wine for Danny who was still in shock after surviving the axe and only to join housemates he had spent a week without seeing.
The four housemates who bounced back to the main house were all in shock with tears rolling down their cheeks as they could not believe they had just survived. Vimbai and Zeus hugged though it was written over Vimbai that Zeus had a case to answer for having swapped himself with the 24 year old who had the guts to attack a 37 year old.
Meanwhile, for those who recall as he walked into the house with a swagga will be surprised to learn that he was the first housemate to leave. In fact he is appearing on these pages for the first time unfortunately when he is even leaving the house.
Bernadina is now the only housemate left from Namibia joining countries like Mozambique and Angola which have one housemate each.
Ugandan housemates Sharon and Ernest in the Big Brother Amplified are still in the game at least for two weeks after they survived the first nomination. Zeus from Botswana who is also the current head of house was also up for eviction but as HoH, he was able to replace himself with Zimbabwe's Vimbai.
The other housemates who are up for eviction are Confidence from Ghana who by the way is disturbed by this move, Danny from Ethiopia, Jossy from Namibia, Vina from Nigeria and Weza from Angola.
This makes a total of six housemates up for eviction and at least two or more could be leaving the house next Sunday at least to reduce on the congestion in the Heads/Tails houses.
Meanwhile, The 'Heads' have heard Big Brother's loud voice addressing the The 'Tails' so as far as they are concerned, it is official that there is another house. Zeus and Lomwe have confirmed that on separate occasions they had Biggie's voice from the kitchen and bathroom calling out one of the housemates to the chat room.

The last female housemat in the Big Brother house has also fallen living behind her new found love Mwisho, Uti, Kaone and Munya who will be joined by two barnmates with the highest votes next week.
All the housemates apart from Munya were up for eviction but Uti did so well with 8 votes, 6 for Kaone, 1 for Mwisho and 0 votes for Meryl. This is how she came to be evicted from the house. Surprisingly though Meryl's country voted for Kaone as opposed to voting for her.
The show was graced with former housemates gracing the music. Mimi, Kwaku, Kevin and Elizabeth did some tracks as Leonel was spinning the discs. When the time for eviction was up, IK did not waste anytime, he just mentioned Meryl's name.
They kissed for minutes as they could not believe the quality time they had been having in the house had come to an end. Biggie kept on informing Meryl to leave the house as the kissing was going on. It took the intervention of the bouncer for Meryl to leave the house.
On coming out of the house, the first question was: "How does it feel to be engaged?", she said: Awesome...."We love each other and we are going to have more babies"
Meanwhile, Mwisho is the next head of house so there was no way he could have survived next week had it not been for that role and also the fact that next week might be focused on the barnmates who will be going back to the main house as opposed to a housemate leaving for the barn.
Tomorrow between Kaone and Meryl, one housemate will be spending a night in the barn but before that we take you down to a day that has gone down in the history of Big Brother Africa as a unique day with Namibia's Meryl and Tanzania's Mwisho getting engaged.
Whether this is a joke or they are serious will be looked into some other day but for now the two have been engaged in the presence of both family members in the house. Mwisho's brother from Tanzania came to the house to witness his brother ask for Meryl's hand in marriage.
Tanzania's Mwisho in his speech said: "A long the way I met Meryl and from then on things changed from friends to being more than friends, Whatever mistakes I make now, I hope I have a lifetime to do better things,".
Meryl's Auntie and Uncle were in the house as they saw Mwisho go down on a bended knee asking Meryl if she could marry him to which Meryl replied: ''I' d love to baby". This is when Mwisho slipped on the tanzanite ring on Meryl's finger.
Munya being the head of the house, he was the MC as Uti was the Best Man. Now Meryl's secret is: "She is having a relationship with a well known Namibian personality, he could be married, he could be not, I'm having a relationship, she could be in an affair, keep you posted"
In the secret, it is clear Meryl is moving out with someone though she also adds that that someone could be seeing someone else. Meanwhile, in one of her lines she said, she had been with over 30 men with now her latest addition, Mwisho.
In spite of the wedding confusion, Meryl, Mwisho, Uti and Kaone are up for eviction and there is no amount of confusion that can stop Africa from having the new bride or Kaone leaving the house tomorrow, Watch this space!

The main house has five housemates as the rest are in the barn house with three out of the game for different reasons. Of the five housemates in the big brother house, four are up for eviction apart from Zimbabwe's Munya who is also this weeks head of house.
Mwisho and Meryl are among the four housemates who are up for eviction implying that should it turn out that one of them has the least popular vote, they will be pushed to the barn house but before all that happens, the two will be officially married.
Mwisho told Biggie of his intentions to marry Meryl and when asked to confirm the news, Tanzania's Mwisho said: "I'm serious in life and it wouldn't be surprising to me and it wouldn't be a surprise to my family and friends,"
This will be the first time housemates are getting engaged on the Big Brother Africa reality TV show though a number of former housemates are moving out like Quinn(South Africa) and Jennipher (Mozambique), and just recently the latest proposal by Kevin (Nigeria) to Elizabeth Tanzania.
The game is becoming tight by the day and though one barnmate (Lerato) is not allowed to nominate for obvious reasons, it did not help the situation either as four housemates are up for eviction the first time in the Big Brother All Stars.
Munya who is the current head of house was among those who scored the highest in nominations this evening but he saved himself and put Meryl who had survived the nominations. This means that all the housemates are up for eviction apart from the head of house, Munya from Zimbabwe.
Kaone is 'Finished'
This week is equally very predictable as Kaone is leaving the house next Sunday. He is the only one among the male housemates who has not faced Africa compared to Uti and Mwisho who faced Africa and bounced back to the house.
The only female in the house
Meryl so far is riding on two or three aspects: Being the only female standing in the main house gives her an edge in the game, Girlfriend to Mwisho which acts as a precursor to steamy moments in the house which has been one of those crowd puller products after shower hour was scrapped.
That means Meryl is not leaving, Uti happens to be stronger than Mwisho and Mwisho is stronger than Kaone given his affair with Meryl. This leaves Kaone standing on the Botswana vote which might also not be enough to save him.
Next week will even be more interesting as it will be between Munya who has gained a lot of 'Africa Muscle', followed by Uti and now the pair(Merylsho) which is going to be split in the next week. This however, strongly depends on who wins the head of the house task. Keep it locked to Uganda Online for more!
Namibia's Meryl is the new Head of House taking over from boyfriend Mwisho from Tanzania clearly confirming another week for the two before they can think of relocating to the barn house.
Meryl, Paloma and Jen are the only female housemates that are still in the main house as the rest of the girls are playing the game from the barn house. In fact during last night's Saturday dance in which 91.3 capital fm's Allan Kasujja was the DJ, Meryl danced with Mwisho groin to groin as Paloma and Jen danced looking at their images.
Tonight, Uti, Code and Munya are facing the axe though Munya does not know he is up for eviction. It might be very difficult for Code to survive this one.
Kenya's Sheila and Namibia's Meryl made out under the same bed for over 30 minutes as the rest of the housemates were out there in the jacuzzi. Meryl and Sheila kissed, touched and did all silly things as the barnmates watched every move they made under the sheets.
This left all the barnmates perplexed because they watched a lot going down between these two. Initially we were suspecting Code under the sheets with Meryl but later as the other face was shown, it was Sheila.
This hurt Hanningtion so much that he kept on saying ''I knew it'' and he added that he wants to go back to the house. Yacob said that was cool because they showed them what viewers are able to see.
Tatiana said that it looks like it is not the first time they were doing, it looks like they have been at it all this while.
The cameras focused on Mwisho who was moving round in circles and at one point he tried to touch below their mattress looking for a match box to light his cigar, that is when we saw Meryl's face.
Now Sheila and Munya are up for eviction does she survive the African vote that does not subscribe to the girl to girl act.
It is not only Namibia Vs Ethiopia for the barn next Sunday but it wass just about to become nasty in the house as Meryl lost her cool after she heard Yacob discussing her to other housemates in particular Kaone and Uti.
What killed Meryl the more was the topic of how Munya dumped her for Tatiana. Meryl told off Yacob that she did not care if he thinks she is a whore or a groupie. We hope this has not escalated her chances of getting out of the house and heading to the barn where she might not do much fighting with the hens or cow but may be get along with Sammy B.
Its getting hot in here - Namibia's Meryl notable for flashing, Zimbabwe's Munya who's done a bit of crying and Yacob almost had a fight with Uti are up for eviction. Kaone who happens to be this weeks Head of House a position he fluked after Tatiana was pushed to the barn.
The weakest link among the three is Yacob because much as they are all stars Munya and Meryl have had better games in the past compared to Yacob who was in the revolution that had over 20 housemates. This gives Meryl and Munya an edge over Yacob but now that three are up, it is a bit tricky because it might take the sentence of Hannington and Sammy who ended up joining the barn at the same time.
Should it turn out that two are going that will definitely be Yacob and Meryl in that order. It is not clear when Meryl joins the barn will click with quiet and reserved Sammy after having a ball with striper Mwisho who is everything bad news when it comes to Biggie's game.
Meanwhile our boy Hannington is clicking with Tatiana big time as they more or less sleep together chat kiss and touch paying for the time he had been bored in the barn. On the other hand Lerato is not very amused with Tatiana in the barn. As if that is not enough Hannington was a better person to hang out with while in the barn but the moment Tatiana came to the barn, Hannington was hers to take.
All I can say to Lerato is take it easy as next Sunday, Yacob will be joining her from there to continue with their unfinished business in the main house.
Tanzanian Housemate Mwisho spent yesterday evening talking about how he would like to have many wives coupled with many children. Earlier on Meryl had told the other housemates how she had slept with 30 men but only dated 5. These two are a perfect match by virtue of that CV.
Having kissed passionately that evening that must have acted as a precursor to the wrestling that was witnessed later in the night. Namibia's Meryl and Mwisho went to bed and immediately giggles started.
Moments later you could hear heavy breathing from the sheets which breathing got heavier attracting Lerato who could not help laughing. Sheila was forced to tell Lerato to "shut up and sleep"
Big Brother Africa all stars kicked off yesterday and it promises to be hotter than all the other episodes from the look of things. Mwisho from Tanzania and Meryl were having a show of sorts with him daring his all to Meryl as she looked at the entire pack in amusement.
Paloma(Zambia) and Rene(Namibia) are having a fight currently(12:30am) EAT over hygiene. Paloma blew her nose in the sink and Rene found her doing exactly that so she told her that is contagious.
A war of words kicked off there after though Rene was quick at saying she was sorry, it was not easy for Paloma to accept the apology. According to Paloma, she had run out of tissue, so she blew the mucus into the sink and used water there after. This upset Rene to bits.
They both lit their cigars to try and cool tempers but it was getting hot in the house because the cameras were concentrating on this fight. It took the intervention of the other girls. For the record, Paloma is the big Momma in the house while Rene is the blonde who assures you of "entertainment at its very best."
