Last Friday, Maneta Mazanhi who represented Zimbabwe in the Big Brother Stargame sneaked into the country quietly bringing an end to speculations of her whereabouts.
"I came on Friday aboard South African Airways around 6pm. I was advised that I needed to sneak into the country quietly because people were literally baying for my blood," Maneta said.
Maneta and Roki were disqualified after a sensation altercation. The two Zimbabwe housemates failed to learn from DKB and Zainab earlier and took Biggie for a ride when he constantly warned them about their actions.
When Rocki poured water on Maneta, she retaliated with liquid soap right in Rocki's face, Biggie simply called Maneta to the Diary Room where she kept her for several hours as her temper cooled.
Last year had two winners and one of them was Wendall from Zimbabwe and the other was boobliscious Karen from Nigeria. Its also important to note that Munya from Zimbabwe missed the grand prize of US$200,000 but because he played the game so well, fellow countrymates together with President Robert Mugabe contributed US$300,000 which they handed him in cash.
Vimbai Mutinhiri who was the other housemate representing Zimbabwe also got US$10,000 for having represented Zimbabwe. Many Zimbabweans feel Roki and Maneta did not represent their country so well and now that the two Big Brother Starmates have apologized to their nation and the fans at large, we wait to see if they will get similar boosts like their predecessors.
Related: Is Maneta in Zimbabwe or South Africa?
Big Brother Contestants from Zimbabwe were the latest housemates to be disqualified on the 19-June-2012.
Rocki was received at Harare International Airport on Thursday night but Maneta was nowhere to be seen. Now Its not clear if Maneta stayed in South Africa or she used a a different route.
In disqualifying them Big Brother stated that: "Maneta and Roki - you have both contravened the Provocation rule - repeatedly. Roki you intentionally provoked Maneta by pouring water over her head. Maneta, you then threw cleaning fluid in Roki's face.
Maneta, you also threatened to stab Roki. This after you had both thrown fluids over each other earlier in the day. Big Brother asked you both to show restraint - and neither of you did. As you are both no doubt aware, you have left Big Brother with absolutely no choice.
In terms of the House Rules you have both been disqualified from the game."
Urban groovers have recorded a song 'Taneta Maneta' in which they are dissing Maneta for her actions in the house. Maneta who almost gave it out to Keitta had he played his cards well is under fire from Big Brother Africa fans.
Former Zimbabwe Big Brother Contestants Speak Out:
Vimbai Mutinhiri: I get so many emails a day from young Zimbos who want to rep their country and uplift themselves! Sad Roki&Maneta wasted the opportunity.
Munya Chidzonga: I think Manetaneeds a break. But i doubt shes gonna get it.
Its game over for Zimbabwe as both housemates representing Zim have been disqualified.
Maneta has been battling with eviction fever since yesterday when she learnt that she was up for eviction. Now this has changed the game plan for next Sunday as two housemates who were up for eviction have been disqualified leaving South Africa's Barbz as the only nominated housemate in the house.
On Tuesday afternoon also known as a black day for Maneta, Big Brother was conducting Keitta's diary session which lasted hardly a minute before he told him that he was stopping it right there. The house was on fire. Rocki poured water on Maneta who in turn got a bottle of cleaning detergent and sprayed it right in his face.
Biggie called Maneta to a closed diary room session for over 45 minutes. At the end of it all, Biggie called all Upvillers to the lounge and read the rules to them once again. He then told them how Rocki and Maneta had been disqualified for breaking the rules.
Maneta had spent the whole day crying and anyway, she was aware that she could not make it come next Sunday so there was nothing to cry about the fate that had befallen them, but Rocki who thought that because he had poured water could be forgiven, cried like a baby while saying farewell to Kenya's Prezzo.
A total of four housemates have been disqualified, four have opted out while a number of them have been evicted. Maneta and Rocki are the second pair to be evicted after DKB and Zainab got disqualified earlier on.
The Downville house now has four countries with each country having two housemates of which Uganda is among and the Upville house has Barbz from South Africa, Prezzo from Kenya, Keitta from Ghana, Lady May and Junia from Namibia in the run for USD300,000.
Maneta has spent the whole afternoon crying failing to cope with the fact that she is up for eviction. She was putting on her sheds to the time Big Brother banned sheds in the house, she resorted to covering her face with a black cloth.
Big Brother roared again, housemates no headgear, this is when she let her hair loose covering her eyes. She then decided to go upstairs with Keitta following her, she warned that please don't come near me.
Its important to note that she was putting on black all through and did not want her eyes to be seen by anyone. She looked herself in the mirror while crying as Biggie called Keitta to the diary room.
Its at this point that she attacked Rocki. The cameras had turned to Keitta so as Africa, we missed the footage of how Maneta got to pour the cleaning detergent to fellow country mate Rocki's eyes. Keitta's diary session was suspended immediately as Biggie now had to summon Maneta to the diary room.
Upvillers got the milk they had and poured in Rocki's eyes as a quick remedy to restore his sight. Some of that stuff spilled over to Lady May's eyes, so the two housemates were panicking after they thought they could lose their sight.
At the time of filing this report, Maneta was still in the Diary room, and chances are she could be disqualified.
The only official couple in the Big Brother Stargame from Ghana was split two weeks back when Keitta was upgraded to Upville as Mildred (Eazzy) got evicted. The couple was having issues in the house.
Mildred at one time told Biggie that they were on the verge of collapse now that Keitta was flirting with most of the female housemates, something that did not go down well with Mildred.
Notable among them was Sierra Leone Zainab who confessed that she wanted to have Keitta's last name, Osei. Africa was glued on their telly sets waiting to see what happens after Keitta joined Zainab in Upville, but unfortunately, 48 hours later, Zainab was thrown out of the house when she was slapped by the no nonsense Ghanaian comedian DKB.
Now the latest to play with Keitta's heart is none other than Zimbabwe's beauty Maneta. Keitta has tried to distance himself from her but the 'yellow' babe is determined to get a piece of him at least before she is evicted now that the two are on the chopping block with Barbz from South Africa.
Biggie replenished the store room with some hard stuff yesterday bringing a big smile to most housemates who had started complaining of boredom most especially the Downvillers.
After taking one too many, Maneta spread herself like an eagle and wanted to swallow Keitta like a python that had landed on its prey after 45 days without meat but Keitta was hesitant and instead tried telling her that he looked at her as a sister and also his girlfriend Mildred was watching.
After this 'hug' that lasted several minutes, Keitta was heard saying that I no longer have Mildred. Rocki told him to be strong and not to fall for the Big Brother Galz traps. Keitta and Maneta need to be watched this week as there has been a tendency of such housemates losing temper in their last minutes in the house and giving out their all.
Its no longer Big Brother Africa, It is war. Nigeria's only housemate in the Big Brother Stargame is this week's head of house and the nomination fever was in the Upville week. Prezzo, Manetta and Barbz were the nominated housemates but Goldie had to come in and use her save and replace rights as HOH.
She saved her bad boy Prezzo and replaced him with the only Ghanaian Keitta who is still standing in the house. Prezzo was all smiles when Goldie was called into the diary room to exercise her rights as head of house, he knew he was safe after all.
This left Barbz and Maneta to conclude that they were up on the chopping block because they saw no way Goldie could replace them when they are very close with Prezzo. Goldie made matters worse when she even dared to ask who could have thought of putting Prezzo up for eviction.
This week, Maneta(Zimbabwe), Keitta(Ghana) and Barbz(South Africa) are up for eviction and the big question is, will Maneta survive this one? Ghana has one housemate in the house while Zimbabwe has two i.e Rocki and Maneta and South Africa has Keagan and Barbz after Lee was evicted last Sunday.
Get voting for your favorite housemate because the one with the least votes will be leaving next Sunday.
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.
South Africa's Upville housemate Barbz was seated with the only housemate from Sierra Leone Zainab in the lounge and were wondering what Africa wants. She could not believe that after the daily thigh display and the thunder butt dancing, the housemate from Zambia got evicted.
Interestingly, after her interview on stage, IK asked her to do the thunder dance and this she did with ease. Mampi was the best dancer in the Big Brother Season 7 but this CV did not make things better than her.
She was up with unknown Maneta(Zimbabwe) who was upgraded from Downville two weeks back and yet she was a star from her country but all this did not stop Maneta from trouncing her. Lady May bounced back to the house with ease, though she warned DKB that when she gets back to the house, it will be war.
Maneta and Mampi were clad in their short outfits at least too short to cause havoc in men's southern regions, Mampi was in a killer stilleto with the cameras zooming in and out of her thighs as Rocki sat next to them nicely clad in his bow tie.
Lady May was nowhere to be seen at this point in time as she was not aware that she was on the chopping block. Barbz joked "You guys look pretty, why don't you dress like that everyday"
The show kicked off with Diamond performing 'Mawazo' who got the crowd shouting to his dance strokes that made one babe to beat security just to get close to him. Another guy hit the stage as Diamond's swagg got to the fans.
IK hit the stage and very quickly got the show rocking with the highlights of the previous live eviction show. Highlights in the Upville house followed and among them was the task that made Goldie head of the house.
The Downvillers had more of love highlights going for them, traditional dancing, the use of the f-words by Keagan who to make matters worse is the head of house this week.
Evicted Housemates Speak Out
Luke - "I just like everything in the house it was crazy just the two weeks I had in the house...I wanna meet Jessica outside the house."
Dalphin - "I've learnt to leave with different kinds of people, but she warns that Zainab is tough and those in the house should be careful not to step on her toes. She was surprised that outside the house she was being told that she was dull."
Yadel - "Alex and I found a bond, Alex and I are friends and we're not in a relationship and we are going to continue to be friends. It was my dream to be on TV. No matter where your from we are all Africans and I loved it"
The Voting Results Come In - IK crosses over to the house, DKB would you please stand and tell your housemates the dirty trick. DKB told fellow housemates that "I had to save myself so don't take it personal if I mention your name. The person is....Lady May. Lady May said "Huh I knew it honey." she added that if she comes back to the house, they will talk.
IK asked all nominated housemates to please stand. he started with Lady May and told her that she was safe just like DKB had predicted. Only one of the other two is going to survive this eviction. Maneta you have survived, Mampi could you leave the Big Brother House, IK roared.
By then DKB was saying I did it, I did it simply because his reason for nominating Lady May was that she was strong and could easily make it back to the house, and this is what happened exactly.
Mampi hit the stage in her MJ suit. She was looking so beautiful on stage. She is going to vote for Maneta who she calls a spidermate. She puts the money on Zainab's head because she is crazy. They showed highlights of her thunder dance. Fans will miss Mampi's dance moves. She told IK that she was prepared to go. She did the thunder dance before leaving the stage.
Botswana - Edith and Eve were the second lot that fell a victim for the second random nomination and looking at how the game is flowing Eve and Edith are so gone and since Mildred shares the same vote with Keitta, Mildred will have to go and Keitta will be upgraded to Upville to meet Zainab who is already horny and yet her dream is to be called Zainab Osei.
Random Nomination in the Downville hit the first official couple to join the Big Brother Africa from Ghana (Mildred and Keitta) before the show crossed to a sizzling performance with eight babes shaking what their mama's gave them.
Africa is bound to have more drama at this rate. Sierra Leone's only housemate in the Big Brother house is on fire. During her diary session today, Biggie asked her what she missed most and she told him if he really wanted to know, Biggie said he was curious.
''I wanna have sex. It's been like three weeks and I'm going nuts'' Zainab told Biggie. Now earlier on before the diary session, Zainab was flirting with Zimbabwe's Rocki who was asking for some and this is what he told her;
''Keep trying you never know you might have sex with me or you may not''. These lines got Rocki grinning from ear to ear and told her that he won't give up. Meanwhile, Zainab is counting on two lads, Prezzo and Rocki to get down with on the Big Brother game.
However, now that Prezzo is busy with Goldie and Rocki is a bit free having fallen out with Maneta, he might be the one to taste Zainab's bearded meat because Prezzo has made it clear that he is out of Zainab's web.
''Zainab is more wasted and Goldie is more focused'' Prezzo say so.
The Upvillers have been enjoying freebies and Biggie's booze for the last two weeks but this week all that came to an end as they were hit by the nominations fever. Mampi from Zambia came out of the nominations exercise with 6 votes.
Maneta and DKB followed with 3 votes each but the comedian from Ghana was the head of house so he saved himself and put up Lady May on the chopping block like we predicted.
Start voting for the housemate you want to save by sending your text to 7626 on all networks for those in Uganda.
"I'm weak, I'm so weak I did something very bad....I'm gonna go home before the money.."were the words of former bad boy from Zimbabwe Rocki who was playing his game so well until Maneta came to the Upville house.
Being the bad boy he is, he very quickly became attracted to Maneta the moment she crossed from the Downville house to the Upville house a week back. Rocki tried jumping into Maneta's panty and very quickly laid his strategies that included giving her a massage.
But as the week progressed, he made his intentions clear prompting Maneta to tell him off that she has a boyfriend back at home. It was not long before Biggie swung into action with his twists and this time the Upvillers were to nominate each other.
During Rocki's time in the Diary session, Rocki gave in two names and that was for fellow country mate Maneta and Mampi. Maneta got wind of this and cut links with the Zim boy. He tried chilling out with DKB but things weren't flowing normally.
He came downstairs where the two (Mampi and Maneta) were seated and asked Mampi to join him in the garden. It is there that he started crying like a baby telling her that if he could, he would replace himself with Maneta.
"I do not know what I've done for my own heart..Im confused" said Rocki as he continued crying while talking to Mampi. He later went to bed as Mampi and Maneta sat in the lounge discussing what had transpired in the garden.
Maneta simply said; "I don't give a s**t" Mampi tried to plead for Rocki to be forgiven saying that this guy has issues but Maneta is not getting to terms with the fact that a fellow country mate can nominate her..! She concluded that whether he cries blood, I don't give a s**t watch this space!
The Downvillers are relaxed as the pressure shifts to the Upvillers this week and this time the VIP housemates nominating each other in the first ever human nominations in the Big Brother Africa Stargame.
The past nominations have been done by the random nomination machine that has seen six housemates leave the Downville house. The Upville housemates saw their honeymoon come to an end after three weeks of relaxation and not knowing how it feels like being up for eviction.
Mampi from Zambia emerged as the Upville housemate with the highest votes totalling to six followed by Maneta from Zimbabwe who had (3) and comedian DKB from Ghana also having (3) votes.
DKB is the current head of house so those nominations will be put to waste as he will swap himself with any other housemate of his choice. Lady May is widely believed to take up his slot on the chopping board now that when he was nominating, it was Lady May that he put up for eviction.
Maneta is on the chopping block after fellow country mate Rocki put her up. Talking to Biggie on Monday evening, she revealed that Rocki was interested in her and she told him off and not even think of it now that she has a boyfriend outside the house.
Meanwhile, Mampi who is widely blamed for gossiping in the Upville house and the main reason she topped the nominations has said she is going to attack the whole process head on and she has started packing her belongings ready to leave the house.
Last Nite was action packed in the Upville house though with limited booze. The VIP's were able to do with the limited supplies and still had fun with DJ Robbie Rob from Botswana spinning the discs.
Barbz and DKB were together some minutes before the show kicked off demanding that Biggie starts the music. At exactly 11:00pm EAT the party started and Barbz together with DBK hit the 'grass' floor.
Maneta from Zimbabwe was the next to join clad in a green costume and without wasting time started strutting her stuff around. Upville best dancer Mampi from Zambia followed and you know when it comes to shaking what her mama gave her, no one comes close to her.
Shortly after, dreadlocked Bad Boy from Zimbabwe Rocki hit the grass floor giving much respect to the late Michael Jackson which DJ Robbie realised and very quickly slotted in 'Billie Jean' that got him moon walking leaving fellow country mate Maneta perplexed.
Lady May joined though she got an exclusive place and danced alone gyrating her body like a deadly anaconda that had located its prey, the dancing kept on directing her panty to wrong places as she constantly put it in shape.
Fifteen minutes later, lovers Prezzo and Goldie emerged from the middle of nowhere after getting to terms with the Arab wear which was the theme of the night. Goldie was as stiff as a poker while dancing. Her feet were in the same position that risking any footwork related dance could easily send her to the floor.
Goldie retired to the seats shortly after but rushed back the moment Rihanna's 'We Found Love' started playing as though she was confirming that her and Prezzo had found love in a hopeless place.
See you tonight as we see off Zainab to the Upville house and bid farewell to the rest who are up for eviction.
When they called for participants to join the Big Brother show as pairs Keitta and Mildred from Ghana responded as a couple and were able to meet the expectations of the judges. The rest of the participants came in as buddies, brothers and sisters.
It has kind of not been easy for the couple to express their feelings openly before the other housemates and if this show does not break them, then it will only make them stronger. On the other hand, Zainab from Sierra Leone dreams of having Keitta's surname and she is more than determined to get his heart.
Zainab timed Keitta in the kitchen on Wednesday and wanted to kiss his lips but Keitta simply put his chic. Zainab asked what his surname was and Keitta replied that he was 'Osei' Zainab declared that she will one day be called Zainab Osei. This was however brushed off by Mildred.
Yesterday was worse. Mildred was sleeping off as Uganda's Jannette and Zainab tried to give Keitta company. Zainab was in a very short skirt with nothing under that left everything to the full display of Keitta more so with legs wide open.
Mildred woke up and noticed that the situation around Keitta was so scary by her standards. On realising that Mildred had woken up, Zainab tried to cover up. It's not clear whether Zainab will leave to see her dream in the Downville house now that she is up for possible eviction.
The good news is, Zainab is likely to cross to the Upville house and encroach on Maneta who is now the queen of the Upville house. To confirm this Maneta was having a massage from top admirer and fellow countrymate Rocki as Mampi looked on with envy.
Last Sunday, Maneta from Zimbabwe joined the Upville house after surviving the Downville house where they play the game as couples and since then Rocki has not been at ease. He had tried Mampi, Lady May and now after Maneta landed in the house, the guy has not looked back a single bit.
He was last nite pleading with Maneta who he fondly calls 'Neta' to be forgiven over certain utterances. He even got to the extent of going on bended knees. Interestingly, these two are from the same country so after the show there will be no air ticket costs involved in hooking up.
Unfortunately though, being the in the Upville house, they are now playing the game as individuals in the run for the top prize. It's not clear as of now who the Zimbabwe vote will go to when the voting for who takes the money starts but at least this decision was very easy to make between Maneta and her sister Teclar.
Zimbabwe fans were happy to see Teclar out after she accused her young sister for man snatching.
Last week, five minutes into the house, housemates in the Downville house were told that they were up for eviction after a random nomination machine selected the two balls representing their countries.
Julio, Hilda from Tanzania and Maneta, Teclar from Zimbabwe were up for eviction the whole of last week. Hilda had even won the HoH task that was supposed to start on Monday but this will not be the case after she fell a victim of those that were evicted during the Sunday live show.
Hilda tried to play the game as much as possible but Africa said no. Initially all the housemates were asked to leave the house. Maneta's name was the first to be called and told to leave the stage but little did she know that she was still in the game and going to the Upville house.
Maneta got to the Upville house and told the VIP stars that she was fresh from home. She now becomes the most beautiful housemate in the Upville house and she is going to cause a stampede any time. Maneta's beauty is the reason she beat the rest because in the first week, names are a problem for the voters.
Zimbabwe now has two housemates playing as individuals in the Upville house after Teclar got evicted. Tanzanian housemates, Hilda and Julio got evicted too during the Sunday live show.
The situation in the Upville house is becoming hot by the day as Rocki threatens to be bull in the house. He was very close to Lady May from Namibia to the extent that he enjoyed the rubbing game with her which they won in the end.
In a twist of events, Rocki(27) is now after Barbz(34) from South Africa and given his style, he is determined to cross the line. Roki swung into action last evening with these words;
"You look like you can chew me up and spit me out", Barbz wondered but Rocki did not stop at that, he added: "You're just a big snake with beautiful spots that I would like to caress"
Being the big mama she is, Barbz quickly noticed the route Rocki was taking and told him how she has a man. Rocki insisted as Barbz told him to go and have a shower. In the previous season of Big Brother, Michael was on Sharon O's case but he was evicted before we could see the fruits of their relationship.
We now watch the developments between Rocki and Barbz who is not on talking terms with Prezzo from Kenya. Meanwhile, Mampi seems to be interested in DKB..! Watch this space!
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.
Maneta, Teclar from Tanzania and Julio, Hilda from Zimbabwe are up for eviction.
The no nonsense Big Brother comes up with new twists every season but this one is off the hook. The Big Brother Stargame house has two houses i.e. the Upville otherwise the VIPs who don't get nominated and Downville which has all the housemates who entered as couples.
Nominations will this time round be done by a random nomination device which spins disco balls representing the various countries in the Upville house. A ball is then selected and the country on the ball are the housemates who go up for eviction.
IK swung into action with the ball game and in the end Tanzania and Zimbabwe fell victims of next Sunday's possible eviction. Hilda and Julio from Tanzania and Maneta and Tecla are all up for possible eviction next Sunday.
The girls could not believe it that before they could even know the names for the guys, they were already up for eviction. The resorted to drinking realizing that every minute in the house an asset as the dream of spending 91 days in the house was under check.
Africa had better save Hilda from Tanzania because she is a package looking at babes in the house. Meanwhile, one of the housemates from Nigeria said a short prayer for the housemates who are up for eviction so that they survive the Sunday axe.
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.
Former Big Brother Housemate Vimbai Mutinhiri will be launching her fragrance soon. The fragrance which will be for ladies is in advanced stages of completion and it's being tested as the model looks for an appropriate name.
The Big Brother housemate who was evicted on day 84 hopes Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe who is expected to win the next elections slated for early 2012.
She donated some of the money to charity and appeals to the rich to do the same. Vimbai was in love with Wendall while in the house though Wendall who later surprised everyone by being among the top prize winners was not anywhere close to pursuing Vimbai along the love lines.
This years season of Big brother came to an end on Sunday with Nigeria's Karen and Zimbabwe's Wendall taking the money. We had seven finalists who were reduced to the top five after Vina from Nigeria and Hanni from Ethiopia were evicted in that order.
IK bounced back to the house and called Lomwe, Wendall, Luclay, Sharon and Karen to leave the house. Now these were the top five but with Karen's name being called out last, she thought they were leaving her behind and as usual she had started with her noise drama.
While the top five were on stage, IK kept on interviewing one by one but when it got to our very own Sharon, they asked her about Michael, to which she said that Michael was like a brother to her before shouting that "Michael from Mozambique, you got the swagg." She then told IK of how she was going to win.
Unfortunately for Sharon O, then next time IK called the housemate to be evicted, it was Sharon O who almost failed to walk from where she was seated to IK, the host of the show. IK told her that at least she had beaten all the housemates who were before her, but that did not seem like what she had wanted.
Of the top five, Sharon had been evicted leaving four housemates, Karen, Wendall, Luclay and Lomwe. IK called out Lomwe next leaving the big three. Many had thought Luclay and Karen were winning and to some, they thought the next name to be called was Wendall but no please, IK called Luclay.
The crowd started making some sounds as if to suggest there was some unfairness, but this was Africa's decision at work. Otono was dressed like a gangsta prompting a huge statement from IK that; "I have never seen anyone dress like that for this show."
He quickly told him it was his job to tell Africa who is next to leave the house but before that , he reminded him of the scratch on his chest, that never was and yet made him and Karen spit fire in the house, you have been evicted.
Zimbabwe surprised the entire Africa when the pilot was one of the winners and Karen, much as she played the game so well, she was one of the predictable winners and took the money anyway, it is the third time Nigeria is taking the moola after Kevin and Uti from Nigeria won the previous shows.
It's less than a week for the Big Brother game to end which will mark the end of the 91 days for the 26 housemates that started off on May 1. The male housemates were 10 as the female housemates were 16, so it's a good game for the females still standing but a better game by the male housemates who are still in the game bearing in mind that they were few right from the start.
On Sunday Kim from Zambia, Millicent from Kenya and Vimbai from Zimbabwe were forced to pack their bags after Africa decided that they be given a break from the freebies they had enjoyed for the last 84 days.
The no nonsense Luclay from South Africa and Hanni from Ethiopia put themselves up for eviction but Africa is indeed watching so as opposed to throwing them out of the house, they were given a chance to try their luck out in the finals.
The housemate who was clad in a towel during the last eviction was none other than Vimbai but this time she knew Africa has no time for jokes, so she dressed decently this time but it's also not clear why Tanzania voted for her because even her own country rejected her at the time she needed them most.
The issue of Nigeria is similar to that of a double edged sword. It's good that they are two finalists but also bad, because, your country is always your biggest support under any circumstances but in the case of Nigeria, they are having to battle it out between Karen and Vina.
Kenya, Mozambique and Tanzania are likely to vote for Sharon O from Uganda and the rest of Africa for the good morals that the young mother has exhibited in the house. Luclay, Lomwe, Hanni and Wendall are all part of the seven housemates in the final race for USD 200,000 which by the way will see two winners this year.
The game is up for Kenya's Millicent, Zambia's Kim and Zimbabwe's Vimbai after they fell the victims of the Sunday live eviction show. Millicent and Kim were the only housemates left in the house representing their countries after Nic and Mumba got evicted in the earlier shows.
Last week, seven housemates were up for eviction only to be beaten by South Africa's Luclay who emerged with 5 votes as four housemates got 2 votes each. Hanni, Lomwe, Wendall and Millicent got 2 votes and a tie-break mechanism was used leading to Vimbai loosing on a percentage basis.
Uganda kept the spirit of East Africa by voting Millicent as Sharon O was not nominated and Zimbabwe was torn between saving Vimbai and Wendall, so Zimbabweans voted for Wendall leaving Vimbai to be saved by Tanzania, a vote which could not do her much help.
Kim also had her country voting for her but the percentage of votes from one country could were not enough to save her. The house is now left with seven housemates who include Uganda's Sharon, Karen and Vina from Nigeria, Lomwe from Malawi, Luclay from South Africa, Hanni from Ethiopia and Wendall from Zimbabwe in the run for the two top prizes.
Uganda's representative in the Big Brother Amplified house has survived the last nominations which saw seven housemates up for eviction making her a finalist in the run for the prize that will be won in less than two weeks time.
Zimbabwe's housemates Wendall and Vimbai, Zambia's Kim, Kenya's Millicent and Malawi's Lomwe together with three other who sacrificed themselves are up for eviction. Hanni from Ethiopia, Luclay from South Africa and Karen sacrificed themselves as they had no reason to nominate.
Vina from Nigeria is the current Head of House so she saved Karen who happens to be from Nigeria and replaced her with Lomwe from Malawi. Lomwe and Sharon from Uganda were the only housemates who had not been nominated but like we predicted, Lomwe had to get on board. Karen, Vina and Sharon are safe this week.
Vina was later seen crying after what she had done but Hanni from Ethiopia was quick at telling her that it's only a game so she should not stress herself. This season of Big Brother will have two winners walk away with $200,000 each.
Nigeria, Zambia and Zimbabwe are some of the countries which still have the two housemates in the Big Brother where as some countries have long forgotten about Big Brother after all the housemates were long evicted like Ghana and Mozambique.
Karen and Vina are the two housemates from Nigeria and oh yes they are playing the game so well especially Karen but when it comes to the two working together, you can clearly see gaps.
Kim and Mumba are the two representatives from Zambia but at one time the two exchanged bitterly when the issue of Kim's beauty course and her school came up. This is when Mumba came out of her shell. The two housemates are still not very close but at least you cannot compare their relationship to that of Karen and Vina.
Finally Wendall and Vimbai are actually having some chemistry between them very similar to Nkuli and Luclay before Nkuli was booted from the house. Vimbai seems to be interested in Wendall though the pilot seems to be playing it safe.
Vimbai is the current Head of House so when Biggie called her to the chat room to save a nominated housemate, it seemed to be the easiest task for her now that Wendall was up for eviction.
She did not waste anytime by saving her boy Wendall and replacing him with Mumba who has so far been nominated once. Meanwhile, the disqualified housemate Lotus was the limit, she even nominated her fellow country mate Bhoke saying that she wanted to be the only housemate from Tanzania.
This week Lomwe, Zues, Bernadina, Vina and Mumba are up for eviction so start voting for the housemate you want to stay in the house, but the one with the least votes will have no choice but to appear on these pages as evicted.
The eviction fever has crossed to the 'Heads' and our Sharon has not survived the chopping block as she is up for eviction with Zeus, Lomwe, Millicent, Felicia, Hanni, Vimbai and Wendall.
All housemates from Malawi(Felicia, Lomwe) and Zimbabwe (Wendall, Vimbai) are up for eviction followed by Hanni from Ethiopia, Millicent from Kenya and Botswana's Zeus all up for eviction.
Zeus and Hanni had three votes while the rest of the nominate housemates had two votes each. Initially the entire heads house was up for eviction apart from Felicia, so Vina who is the HoH went to the chat room and swapped herself with Felicia.
The race is becoming tight by the day and we are yet to see of Sharon can survive this one.
The first Ugandan Big Brother Amplified housemate to be evicted from the house is already in town after jetting in yesterday aboard a Kenya Airways flight. He was received by his mom Sarah Wasake, Multichoice officials and two brothers.
Ernest was then escorted to Sheraton Hotel where he spent a night. Uganda is now represented by one housemate Sharon Salmon or Sharon O who surprised every one when she emerged the second out of six housemates who were on the chopping board.
The house now has twenty housemates after six were voted out. Of the six, countries like Tanzania and Mozambique have lsot out completely with no more represenation on board. Tanzania had Luclay, the housemate with a weired hairstle and a pin in the nose, this one slapped South Africa's Luclay leading to her being disqualified.
Mozambique had only one housemate after the other Herminio opted out even before the show kicked off. Uganda's Sharon has once again done Uganda proud by surviving ths week's nomination'sthat saw seven up for eviction.
This week, Confidence-Ghana, Vina-Nigeria, Mumbai-Zimbabwe, Weza-Angola, Millicent-Kenya, Hanni-Ethiopia and Zeus from Botswana. Two Housemates will have to leave next Sunday, because given the remaining weeks and housemates, it would make sense to evict two housemates every Sunday so that the final Sunday will leave us with the top five.
Uganda and Tanzania are still getting to terms with yesterday's eviction that marked the end of Tanzania in the Big Brother house and a blow to Uganda after the best housemate was booted out of the house.
The Headmates are now feeling the eviction fever though on the good note for Uganda, Sharon O survived this week's nomination. This means she is still in the game even the week after this one because next week will be for Tailmates to be up for eviction.
Felicia from Malawi was saved by Lomwe who is the Head of House (HoH) and replaced with bad girl Vimbai from Zimbabwe. Seven housemates are this week up for eviction with Zeus from Botswana as the only male housemate as the rest are females.
The Nominees for this week are: Confidence (Ghana), Hanni (Ethiopia), Millicent (Kenya), Vina(Nigeria), Weza Angola, Vimbai (Zimbabwe).
Big Brother Season Six is on and this time around dubbed bigger, louder and powerful but from what we have seen so far, the game simply has more female housemates than the male housemates and to us that is the only amplified aspect.
The house has twenty six housemates of which 16 are female housemates and the male housemates have been reduced to 9 after Jossy Joss was evicted last Sunday.
Bernadina-Namibia: If you recall Tatiana, I'm sure the selection committee was having that in mind so they brought Bernadina on board who so far is left alone after losing Jossy Joss last Sunday, but we have not yet seen her game.
Bhoke - Tanzania: Doing so well to the extent that her country and Uganda will do anything to save her just because they are very close with Ernest from Uganda. Her conversations with Ernest, the moves in the Jaccuzi have already won so many hearts that can empty their accounts just to vote for her to remain in the house.
Confidence - Ghana: Amplified in her way. The oldest in the house, silicon boobs and an entertainer, though last week she survived being evicted because all the three female housemates (Vimbai, Weza and Vina) she was up with beat her in terms of votes and for the male housemates (Danny and Joss), it was a tie of one vote each but beat them on percentage and that is how she went back to the house.
Felicia-Malawi: Amplified via talking and competing with Milicent for Wendall's dongle, short of that, her profile is still growing.
Hanni-Ethiopia: Beautiful, well composed, good complexion, hooked up with Lowme and carefully playing the game.
Kim - Zambia: I don't know whether this is to do with the country and it's norms because anyway both galz from Zambia have been very reserved, quiet and keeping in the background. Kim has however come out of the shell by hooking up Kenya's Nic and they have kissed on several occasions as though their lives depend on that.
Mumba-Zambia: Just like her fellow colleague from Zambia who has kind of opened up, Mumba is still failing to open up and she has been trying to say a few words but it is not easy to tag a topic to her now that she keeps in the background.
Millicent -Kenya: She has for the last two weeks promised to be a first lady just because one President put his details in the news paper that he was searching so since then she has been crying out loud on telly for this President to take not of that and may be her dream will come true. She has a nice body and also knows how to shake her body, so in the planned lingerie party for Friday, these will be the babes to look out for.
Nkuli - South Africa: Now this one has hooked up and with fellow country mate and that is her biggest role in the game so far. No air tickets or visas will be required when it comes to checking on Luclay. She is up for eviction together with her man from South Africa, Luclay.
Karen-Nigeria: Nigeria has taken the trophy twice but with this year's selection, there is no way the silicon boob babe, with a voice deeper than biggie coupled with that 'organic' accent will even make it to the top ten. She has proposed to fellow housemates that next Friday is a lingerie party. Good idea but Africa is waiting for you Karen.
Lotus-Tanzania: Now this one anyway you must have seen the ring right by her nose and may be the fake hairstyle and sleeping with Danny. She also cried after exchanging with Karen. She only needs one glass of Amarula and she will start jumping all over the house. They are all in the house for the money but her nominating fellow housemate, Bhoke leaves alot lot to be desired.
Peo - Botswana : Now this light skinned beauty has the hottest booty in the house and that is just how amplified Peo is. She is at times called Miss P. She was this week's HoH and when it came to exercising her rights, she saved Karen and replaced her with Mumba who now has two days in the house because she will be packing her bags come this Sunday.
Sharon-Uganda: Some have said that if this was a beauty contest, then Sharon would be in the right place. She is an authority when it comes to the catwalk but been quiet all through except for a few instances when Michael was vibing her.
The last time she talked, the topic was of her and her hubby Mulindwa having a three some, which some analysts have rubbished. They say she did that to try and convince Africa into her winning the money but she might have to think of something else because that threesome bit did not sell.
Vina - Nigeria: Her only effort in the game is her hair style and playing the referee role in the Millicent Felicia battle for Wendall the pilot.
Vimbai-Zimbabwe: The model from Zimbabwe cried on learning that it was her they had swapped in the place for Karen so when Biggie told her to pack her bags, tears just rolled. She has however made headlines by assuring the old mama in the house that she is tens years older than all of them so should lead the example.
Weza- Angola: She has just survived being evicted from the house last Sunday because she was up for eviction with five other housemates but in the end she had 4 votes, Vimbai and Vina got three votes while Confidence got only 1 vote.
The Zimbabwean housemate could do a Hannington move in the Big Brother Amplified house if not checked. It has turned out that he is bad tempered and even if one said they were sorry, he will not take any of that.
One of the gals took his cigarettes. He blamed Millicent for the missing cigarettes yet in actual sense Vina had taken them. The cigarettes were later brought back but he was still not cooling down.
Vina said she was sorry but Wendall was spitting fire by then. It took the intervention of Confidence, Hanni from Ethiopia who even hugged him and fellow housemate from Zimbabwe Vimbai to calm him down.
Biggie should see to it that housemates do not witness another Hannington-Lerato saga as pilot Wendall looks like he has some qualities of even doing worse off things.
This is a game and at the end of it all, we will have one man standing or woman for that case to walk away with USD 200,000 and here is Confidence who is aware that she is up for possible eviction and oh yes Vimbai is up for eviction too but she has got no clue now that she was switched with the Head of House(HoH) who is immune to eviction.
Biggie gave them a task to do calendar photo shots in bikini and nude for those who chose. This seemed like a golden chance for Confidence to reward Africa by giving them a boobs treat may be they will save her come next Sunday.
I think Vimbai realised that that move had given Confidence mileage and so she attacked her on basis of being ten years older than almost all the housemates, that she was to act her age as opposed to doing the opposite.
The Vimbai/Confidence attack goes in part:
Vimbai: The problem is that Confidence has chosen a very convenient part of our conversation to share with you..!
Confidence: So why don't you share the unconvenient part that I left out..
Vimbai: As much as I feel we have come here as individuals, I feel there is a role that comes with being more mature than any of us which is wisdom...when you are mature you should be able to say that this is right or wrong but for you to actually encourage something that is potentially detrimental....You 've got ten years on us dude, you've got more than ten years..
Confidence: Are you guys understanding what she might be saying that I encouraged...No you just said that didn't you guys hear that.. I encouraged, for me to encourage that I have ten years of wisdom that I encouraged you guys to go nude..NO Confidence barked come on people..
I'm no body's big sister, I have little brothers and sisters and if I want to be big sister to them then I will be..
Meanwhile, Confidence's boobs have appeared on our pages before and she is pretty aware of her assets and just like her name she confidently flaunts them. Check them out as Zues got a feel of the balloons on her chest.
Housemates Split into Two Groups - Big Brother is full of surprises. Housemates were all tensed up knowing that some could end up going home but instead a new house was created and eleven housemates were pushed to the new house and fifteen stayed in the old house. find out who is in which house.
Last Night is a night you will remind Wendall about even after three years and will tell you that he can't forget such a night. It was about time for Biggie to switch off the lights for the housemates to sleep after having gone through the nominations stress when all this happened
It is not clear if Malawi's Felicia and Kenya's Millicent were killing stress but at least it left Zimbabwe's Wendall disturbed in the knees. Before we go into details of this, it should be noted that there is extra view on Big Brother which allows you to view a different picture from what is showing on Channel 198 directly but then again from the same house.
Simply click OK on your remote and you will be redirected to another screen dubbed BBAA Extra.
This is where you can get those scenes which in most cases might not be suitable to watch while with the little ones like shower hour (We were able to view Bhoke looking at Ernest showering through the extra view), modem, USB connectors etc.
Wendall was in his bed as Felicia and Millicent were about to tear themselves on who should sleep with Wendall that night. They even gave Wendall a chance to make a choice between the girls and all he did was just to smile and holding tight to his pillow.
Felicia was in shorts as Millicent had a black panty under her night gown that she constantly exposed to Wendall to grab his attention. Millicent at one point developed ideas of even putting their beds together now that they are sleeping next to each other.
Millicent kept on arguing with Felicia as to who was better suited to sleep with him. The Kenyan housemate actually went right on top of Wendall and asked him who he was interested in and the pilot from Zimbabwe was only smiling back.
Millicent was the babe who kissed with Ghana's Alex and was in a tight race with Vimbai for Alex's love but Biggie comes up with plans always and this time around created another house which left them in the Heads house as Alex crossed to the Tails house.
Our online snoops logged off from here as the girls were still debating on who should hit the ice first but at least this is an area to watch over the next days, we will keep you posted.
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.
To vote in Uganda: SMS Vote + the Housemates name to 6626 - UTL, Warid and the cost of an SMS is Shs1000. Go for your phone and start voting for Ernest and Sharon O.
In our Kenya and Ghana Locked in First Amplified Kiss, it marked the beginning of love chemistry brewing among housemates as Millicent and Alex kissed. Vimbai on the other hand has feelings for Alex and confessed to Confidence after the party that she has a crush on Alex.
"I just think he is indecisive but I think by tonight he will be decisive, don't loose hope on him" Confidence said to her. Remember the housemates had just had a party and were all high as many like Lotus(Tz) had already blacked out.
Time to Sleep
Confidence suggested that tonight all beds be joined to form one jumbo bed so that if there was any reason to mingle, then the game would flow easily and indeed no time was wasted.
Zeus was a bit tired but continued seeping on his glass as Miss P or Peo gave him company as she gently caressed his chest. Alex was sleeping on his bed taking white wine as Bhoke and Vimbai were seated right on his bed.
Bhoke was in a very short pink dress and by now she had started dancing provocatively as Alex enjoyed the show. She later sat with open legs facing Alex. Bhoke left to pick something from her bed. This is the moment Vimbai went under Alex's duvet.
Bhoke came back and also joined Zeus in his bed though he had kind of slept off. This left Ernest(Ug) very disturbed as he was the only one not paired. It disturbed him for several minutes and Confidence noticed so she invited him in her bed.
Ernest did not waste any time, rushed to under Confidence's duvet and straight on started touching. Confidence roared. No you can't do this. She even removed the duvet clearly exposing Ernest's hand that was trying to make it's way under her jean.
By now the lights were off and we were operating under infrared view which allows night vision similar to what Team Six used to grab Bin Laden. Vimbai was in her short dress that could easily go up, asked Alex to help her remove her bra, which he did and mild movements commenced.
Aware of the night vision, Vimbai put her left arm around her shoulder to confuse Africa but our censors were in full alert by now. She used her right arm to guide Alex's dongle to access her USB port as the mild movements in the sheets were becoming uncontrollable.
Biggie must be a multipartist, it is at this point that he took us to Nic and Wendall who discussing over something we could not follow at that time. Biggie later brought back the cameras to the romping couple with Alex who was shouting Kumayaaaa as hecontinued surfing Vimbai.
It's now official Millicent has lost out on Alex and Africa by now should be looking out for a suitable avatar for (Alex +Vimbai)
The curtains for the popular TV show Big Brother Africa and this time comprising of former stars went down on the 17th of July with Nigeria's Uti taking the USD 200,000 and Munya coming close to taking the day as the race was tight with just a difference of one vote between Uti and Munya.
The moment was so sad for Munya who had literally been up for eviction and survived all the times he faced Africa only to come out as first runner up. No wonder he could not help tears from flowing down his cheeks.
The latest information we are getting from Zimbabwe is that Munya has come out of this whole process far richer than Uti. The President gave him US Dollars 200,000 as a consolation prize for loosing to Uti and businessmen contributed another US Dollars 100,000 making Munya 100,000 US Dollars richer than Nigeria's Uti.
Another local Indian company dealing in Gold gave him a ring worth US Dollars 20,000 and appointed him a diamond ambassador just because he carried himself as the diamond boy while in the house. Code Sangala from Malawi said, "Being named the diamond ambassador is a milestone for great things to come."
The celebrity status that comes with being a reality TV star is short lived for many who may sit back an lay on their pillows but Munya is certainly not one of them.
The game has just started as housemates who are not meant for the money are now heading back home for real. Yesterday Paloma, Code, Meryl and Jen were evicted from the barn house and now this coming week, 2 housemates will be leaving.
The housemates up for eviction are Kaone, Uti, Munya and Tatiana. Kaone did very well the week Meryl got evicted and in the week that followed, there were no evictions, instead 3 housemates Sheila, Tatiana and Lerato bounced back to the house.
Kaone is 'Finished'
The race is between Uti and Munya and without wasting anytime, those two will be left and we will concentrate on Tatiana and Kaone. The housemate from Botswana is having his last time in the house and will try his "why do you fool with the youth in me" elsewhere.
Big Brother has already informed the housemates that 2 of them are leaving next week. Tatiana having tasted the barn simply confirms that Africa had actually thrown her out, and the mere fact that she came second to Sheila, it only means that Sheila had more votes than her to bounce back to the main house.
After Tatiana leaves the house, it will leave Kaone who was among the last men standing but also the weakest of all.
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!
Munya from Zimbabwe is surely not about the to leave the game as for the last several weeks he has been up for eviction and coming out safe and as if that is not enough, he has become the new head of the house.
This leaves Kaone, Meryl, Mwisho, and Uti to face his head of house act tomorrow should he survive eviction tonight. The show started with 14 housemates and since then two have opted out of the game as Uganda's Hannington was disqualified for unacceptable behaviour.
If Jen leaves tonight, Meryl will be the only female housemate left in the main house together with Uti, Munya and her boyfriend Mwisho. Uti was last weeks head of house who also emerged as one with the higest polls and therefore up for eviction, but he saved himself and put up Munya. We are yet to see if Munya survives eviction for the seventh time.
Jen has never been up for eviction and has always been crying every Sunday when a housemate is evicted from the main house to the barn house. Jen is up for eviction with Munya who is up for the seventh time.
Munya from Zimbabwe is going nowhere because Africa has spoken for the last six times he has been up so there is no reason he would leave this time around. Its very unfortunate that Jen has ended up facing Africa with a strong man who is even likely to stand till the end.
Initially, Jen and Uti had the most votes but as you may be already aware, Uti is the current Head of House though some housemates insist he cheated on the task for head of the house.
Uti saved himself and put Munya up for eviction. Now this is another wasted swap because had Uti put Kaone up against Jen, this would have been a more complicated puzzle to deal with, but for now as things stand, "Jen is finished"
The game is becoming tight by the day with now top dogs up for eviction. Munya is up again for the sixth time and without wasting time on this, he will survive for the sixth time. Uti has a good game still going for him on two counts, one he has a sympathy vote for having lost his dad and two; he is equally entertaining and according to our experts, he is in the top two for the top prize who happen to be Munya and Uti.
That leaves one man standing but not for a long time because anyway, he will be a barnmate come this Sunday and this happens to be none other than Code Sangala from Malawi. He was saved last week by his very good friend Jen who was the Head of House a title she fluked after the real HoH had to shift to the barn house, but he was not lucky this time.
It is quite interesting bearing in mind that the barnmates are part of the game and they continue to participate actively in the polls though their target failed this time. They wanted Jen from Mozambique out but she failed to score the required points that would put her up for eviction even after half of the barnmates voted for her.
Mwisho was the current Head of House and he happened to be one of those with the highest votes but given his magical title, he had himself to save and replaced with Munya. How I wish he had replaced himself with Paloma, may be this replacement could have paid off, however putting up Munya seemed to be a wasted replacement which might not bear fruits in the end.
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.
Sheila and Tatiana had polled the highest in the nominations but Sheila being the head of house was called in to the diary room and she replaced her self with Munya from Zimbabwe. This make life very difficult for Tatiana given the comments she made while putting up Lerato for eviction.
She said that her biggest competitor is Lerato and that is the reason she made her face the axe. Now Africa has got her and the next thing she will realize it will be her, the hens, the cow and the other three 'Barnmates'
Munya is so far not having a good game going for her but that does not mean he face the barn at this point in time. He survived the previous eviction and so is the next one which Tatiana will not survive.
We can't wait to witness Tatiana and Lerato in the Barn House next week.
The housemate from Zimbabwe has told Big Brother he wants to leave the house. This was after Tatiana revealed to him what other housemates had been discussing about him among others leaving his 3 day old baby to come and stay in the Big Brother House.
A few days back Munya broke down to tears after a small talk about his role in the previous big brother which Richard won. This very talk was between Munya and Tatiana. Could we be noticing a case of the real game unfolding.
Remember Tatiana is the current Head of the House and Munya together with Lerato are up for eviction to the Barn House but to the housemates this is as good as going home..Could it be that Munya thinks he can't make it this Sunday and that he would rather go out before then.
Munya told Big Brother today that he wants to leave the house voluntarily just because some of the housemates think he is fake. Tatiana has been pleading with him for the greater part of the day to revise his decision but Munya is like "i'm Done"
In the previous Big Brother that Munya was involved in, he really had a good game going for him but in the All stars he has broken down and cried like a baby and now he wants to opt out of the game even before the official quitter Jennipher thinks of it. Watch This Space!
The in thing for the evicted housemates now is the Big Brother Barn that is a consolation home for the housemates who have been evicted from the Big Brother House. The beauty with this is that the Barn Mates have a telly in the barn where they keep watching over the rest of the housemates in the main house.
The Barn mates so far are Uganda's Hannington who was the first to be evicted from the main house and Ghana's Sammy. It should be remembered that before Hannington was evicted, he had become the Head of House after shouting the loudest of all the housemates followed by Tatiana.
As luck would have it Tatiana became the next head of house by default after the rightful HOH Hannington had been evicted. In Todays' nominations she ranked the highest together with Munya from Zimbabwe.
Biggie had to call her to the diary room to make her changes which she did. She had herself to save in replacement with Lerato a decision that took her a couple of minutes to make. That is how Lerato and Munya became available to face Africa though not to head for their homes but to the Big Brother Barn.
Meanwhile, the other housemates in the main house think the guys who have left the house have been evicted for good a thing that might make them lag behind as the guys in the barn garner points depending on how well the befriend the cows.
Itai from Zimbabwe has been evicted leaving behind the Africa's Big Five Kevin, Edward, Nkenna, Emma and Mzamo. Kevin got 7 votes while Emma was right behind Itai with 6 votes and the likely housemate to take the dime, Kevin had 2 votes.
The show that kicked off with IK coming on stage with a red bike started off with a spectacular performance from a group that had great dancing partners. The show later crossed to the highlights ion the week reflecting more on Mzamo and Itai's fight that resulted in Mzamo smashing the window glass.
When Itai was asked about that fight he had this to say: I looked like Mzamo's ex and that is the reason the two were not getting along. Itai left the house with USD 2,899 in his money pot courtesy of Big Brother.
The winner of the USD 200,000 will be crowned next Sunday. The competition though is between Nigeria's Kevin and Edward Mongo from Namibia. The girls are still in but Mzamo's temper and her actions with Leonel will not get her close to winning the money.
Nkenna's character and her Paloma like bossy ways will just not work in her favour. She spent over an hour after Itai had been evicted praying for the sick, the presidents and literally everyone in a bid to gain support for her, but sorry that will not work. The best position for her will be third place after Mzamo and Emma will have left in that order.
The game is coming to the end and its getting hot in the house. Three housemates are up for eviction and one of them has to leave the before we head for the finals. Emma, Mzamo and Itai were up for eviction but the Head of house, Edward came to Emma's rescue replacing her with Kevin.
If Kevin survives this eviction you can as well say the money will be his. We still have two Nigerians in the house at the moment and Nkenna has managed to book herself a slot in the top finals. Mzamo is another lucky person who got saved by the HOH winning herself a slot on the big 5.
Big Brother has abandoned the housemates and only left them with a phone that changes the message on every call. Itai made his way to the diary room to try and communicate to Biggie or better still to the phone for that matter.
The answering machine played some music for him as it kept him entertained and also assuring him that his call was important to them, so he had every reason to be patient. This he did and tried for several minutes.
As Itai was just about to give up the Biggie calls, the other housenmates came up with a silly idea of locking him in the Diary room. Initially Jeremy suggested that Itai be locked up for at least 3 minutes and then after released. The game became interesting on their part as Itai was forcing the door open, the other housemates simply took off leaving the poor Zim boy with a Big Brother phone which was even not working.
Jeremy and Emma retired to the jacuzzi as Elizabeth and Kevin who were not part of the game were sharing the same bed. Itai later forced the door open, cleared whatever they had used to block the door and dashed to the washroom as he was dying to use it on emptying his wine glass.
He brushed his teeth only to bump into Jeremy and Emma shortly after, asked who were the ring leaders for locking him in the diary room, they claimed not to know anything as they were in the Jacuzzi.
He came to the room and switched on the light as Nkenna passed by, he ordered her to switch off the lights and went straight to Geraldine's bed, forced her out of the bed and demanded to know who did that.
The Zim boy has promised to fix all those involved. He is pretty sure Nkenna and Geraldine were involved and he has promised to deal with them. Meanwhile, he has promised not to go back to the diary room.
Quinn from South Africa has been evicted from the Big Brother revolution. He was the only housemate left in the house from South Africa after Liz was evicted last week. Kristal from Zimbabwe was Quinn's comrade in arms so evicting one meant evicting the other.
Kevin from Nigeria and Elizabeth from Tanzania have survived this eviction and luck is equally on their part now that the pairing of housemates is no more. All housemates are playing as individuals till the end.
Three housemates from Nigeria and one from Tanzania, Angola, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia and Malawi are left in the house. It is the first time we have failed on our predictions because we were sure Elizabeth and Kevin were leaving the house now that Nigeria has three housemates but Africa disagreed with us.
Kristal from Zimbabwe left the house with US$ 2,383 while Quinn from South Africa left with US$ 2,107. Meanwhile Nigeria still has a very good game now that Nkenna is the current head of house.
Tawana has lost temper. She has not only slept with three men but she is also Head of the House for the third time. In our first Uncut report we smoked her out with TK, the second Uncut was missed because our snoops blacked out in the process. The third one, she was in action with Munya and I'm sure you have seen the clip by now.
Today is Friday and our snoops are going to be alert throughout the night to make sure that we smoke out Ricco and Tawana. They slept together last night and Ricco woke up this morning all smiles.
Knowing Tawana by now and what she is capable of doing we know they mingled but we are yet to prove that in the Uncut show whose report will be ready by tomorrow. Munya is about to bounce back to the house from Finland and the trouble to the housemates which is the drama to the viewers is whether Munya will accept to leave Tawana for Ricco or the other way round..Watch This Space.
Meanwhile Ricco back in Finland managed to at least get a kiss from Cheryll the Finland housemate who found Munya a nice a guy to be around with the moment he entered the house. Unfortunately Cheryll is up for possible eviction this Sunday (26.Oct.2008) and it was Munya giving her a shoulder to lean on.
Ricco has had a unique game since day1. He is one housemate who has been on the exit line many times in a row and he has still managed to get zero votes. Housemates are now aware he is a clear threat in fact when KB asked Sheila who she would put the money on, Sheila was quick at saying Ricco.
Ricco has actually slept with all the girls meaning he has shared a bed with almost all the female housemates except Sheila who was being guarded jealously by Takondwa. Like he always says he has kept it gangster.
Zimbabwe is still locked in power sharing talks, but Munya is not bothered about all that. The only thing that matters to him now is his "Big Brother" who he has fed twice on Mummy Tawana. Munya is only 21 years and Tawana is 31 so we are now in it to win it.
Tawana almost had a fight with Sheila over TK but she decided to back off now that these two were tight marking each other. She crossed to our boy Morris who simply quoted bible verses to Tawana. She noticed she was pressing a wrong button so she simply put Morris out of her plans.
Thami is trying to mend things with Hazel, TK is still recovering from the eviction shock of Sheila, Ricco and Mimi were trying out a MICCO of sorts before they cut wires, and surely this is why Munya fell a victim to the Big Moma. Besides the Big Moma wanted it very badly to the point of the poor boy saying "do not lead me into temptation"
They were making this there daily bread (Munya Docks at Tawana's Station ) before Biggie came in to rescue the situation. Munya has proved to be a man he is and now he has been taken to Big Brother Finland to see if he docks stations there.
The youngest housemate, Munya from Zimbabwe had it with the oldest Housemate from Botswana, Tawana. Tawana told Munya that she had not had sleep in four days so she asked Munya to put her to sleep. Munya did this with no hesitation.. Details from our BBA III Uncut Show.
Last year's Big Brother Africa 2, Uganda's housemate, Maureen Namatovu (rumored to be pregnant now)had no big deal showering with all her clothes off bearing in mind that millions of people were glued on their tellies watching the reality show. Meryl showered with nothing on too. In the current Big Brother Africa(3) series the Tanzanian housemate, Latoya and Botswana's housemate, Tawana so far are the two girls who remove everything during shower hour which kicks off at exactly midnight(EAT).
The boys: Ricco, Munya, Takondwa and Thami all remove there clothes and shower without any problems whatsoever and at times facing female housemates under the shower while nude. Mimi originally could shower with outfits close to a dress on but now she has graduated to a two piece costume.
Namibia's Lucille puts on a brown two piece while Kenya's Sheila puts on a two piece during shower hour. Meanwhile these are three days and the Ugandan housemate has not been seen showering. On the 28.Aug.2008 he was close to showering but only brushed his teeth. It should also be remembered that shower hour is strictly one hour and Big Brother clearly announces that ''All housemates have strictly one hour to shower''
Lucille came to the bathroom and her eyes caught TK's front view, but to this she could not hold any further she just turned back and went where she came from smiling. Lucille chose TK out of all the boys to kiss. TK is sleeping with Hazel(Malawi) and Lucille is still playing innocent and still sleeping alone in the bed but how long will she go on like this..
Last night Munya(Zimbabwe) tried very much to convince Lucille so that they could sleep together but Lucille stood her ground and said No. Lucille and Mimi are the only girls still sleeping together just 4 days in the 91 days game.
