A section of Big Brother fans in Uganda have blamed the team responsible for choosing contestants from the lot that auditioned for the reality show at Sheraton Hotel in Kampala.
Questions are still being asked as to how Esther Akankwasa emerged the best person to represent the country in the season 9 edition otherwise known as the Big Brother Hotshots. It's day 3, but with only 60 days left for the show to end, fans in Uganda are certain that with Esther AK, this was a raw deal and a clear plan for denying Uganda the chance to win the $300,000 prize money.
It's as though Uganda is represented by one contestant, the reigning Miss Uganda, Stella Nantubwe also going by the name Ellah on the show.
Rwanda which is making it's debut on the reality show this year have a strong team. Frankie (good sat singing) and Arthur the comedian are doing so well and Biggie's cameras are following them all the way, but the few times the cameras have rolled on Esther, the topic of discussion is not that pleasant.
It should be recalled that several people showed interest in the show, it's also alleged that some personalities were asked to audition but in the end, Esther was topping the charts. Matters were made worse when word started doing rounds that a Naija man was representing Uganda.
One disappointed fan who seems to know Esther so well had this to say;
"I met Esther our BBA housemate years back when she was still a dancer, I interacted with her at a personal level and I can confidently say; Uganda is up for serious, complete/absolute humiliation!She is as empty as it gets!!!"
One was quick to answer this one that that was then, a lot has changed, let's give her a chance.
Tanzania's Laveda is the first Head of House after beating all the contestants in the talent show that was supposed to market all the housemates to Africa. She is immune to eviction this week.
