After a thrilling 91 days in the Brig Brother Africa All Stars house, Nigerian musician/model/actor, Uti Nwachukwu has emerged as the winner of Big Brother Africa 2010 â€“ Big Brother Africa All Stars. It was a tight race as Uti and Munya were the final two housemates. According to host IK, this was the closest ever finale with the winner securing the votes from 8 countries and the runner up from 7.
Uti originally participated in the 3rd season of Big Brother Africa and was one of the housemates from previous seasons chosen to enter the Big Brother All Stars house. This is the second consecutive Big Brother Africa win for Nigeria as Kevin Chuwang Pam won Big Brother Revolution in 2009. This season of Big Brother Africa has certainly been thrilling with various twists and turns. From the â€˜barnâ€™ to Meryl and Mwishoâ€™s engagement. There was never a dull moment.
The finale was equally exciting. With performances from Nigeriaâ€™s MI, Jesse Jagz and 2Face as well as Kenyaâ€™s Wyre and Nigerian musician Maye Hunta who performed the Big Brother All Stars theme song â€œAfrican Starâ€œ. The final five housemates were Sheila, Mwisho, Lerato, Munya and Uti. With Sheila exiting first, followed by Mwisho and then Lerato. In addition, all the previously evicted and removed housemates were present at the grand finale.
Evicted housemates Meryl provided one of the highlights of the night when she was asked by IK what she would choose, her man â€“ Mwisho or the $200,000 prize, she replied â€œAs much as I love paper, I love my manâ€œ. Love is beautiful! We wish them all the best. As for Uti, it is a sweet victory after a tough 91 days. While he was in the house, his father passed away. Now, he can go home and be with his family. In addition, he launched his debut single before he entered the BBA House. We bet the $200,000 prize will help him push his music career a bit further. Congrats to all the housemates especially Uti.
