In another amazing season of Big Brother, styled BB Amplified, Karen, a 27-year-old model from Nigeria, and Wendall, a 23-year-old commercial pilot from Zimbabwe emerged as the winners of the U$200 000 first prizes.
Karen was everyone’s favourite with her heart-on-her-sleeve confrontational style which had her, and us, in tears many times over.
The Nigerian bombshell is proof that dynamite does come in small packages and that the future for this special child of Africa can only be bright.
Once again Zimbabwe proved to be a strong contender with Wendall, the quietly spoken fellow from Harare, surprising us all by finishing in joint first place.
As a true patriot of Zimbabwe his home country can truly be proud of their entrant.
Sadly there had to be those who came close but never got across the line.
Vina of Nigeria was first to leave, followed by Hanni from Ethiopia, SharonO from Uganda, Lonwe from Malawi and Luclay from South Africa who finished third.
All were worthy finalists and none of them would have looked out of place with the prizes.
As we have pointed out a number of times Africa you truly are beautiful and non-racist. Where politicians may let you down from time to time you have shown that you are bigger than that and racism is not running through this wonderful continent.
The producers, sponsors and staff who made Big Brother Amplified such a spectacular show, professionally run deserve a special mention.
Big Brother Amplified does enormous good in breaking down barriers on the continent and in creating a generation of Africans who love and respect each other.
There should be a nobel peace prize for your efforts but unfortunately you aren’t politicians.
Big up to all concerned.
