Big Brother Africa: I did not screw up – Alex Biney

Evicted Ghanaian housemate, Alex Biney, in the on-going Big Brother Africa (Amplified) reality show has said contrary to perceptions that he screwed up, a contributory factor to his eviction, he did not, claiming he provided the best of entertainment to viewers.

He said he would have agreed to that assertion on the day of the nominations when his name was mentioned, “but right now its entertainment for me. I see it as entertainment. It doesn’t matter what I did or the consequences of my actions, it was entertainment.

“I provided the best entertainment I could provide at the moment. I used every situation to my advantage to put me in the forefront, to give me this platform…I don’t regret anything, I don’t believe I screwed up.”

Alex was evicted from the reality show Sunday, July 10, along with two of his ‘wives’ – Miss P and Weza – the trio widely tagged as ‘the triangle’.

Nicknamed Boma Ye, Alex left the Big Brother Africa show as Ghana’s best performer. He spent 70 days in the show, became Head of House and came up for eviction on two occasions – the first of which he saved himself.

Genuine strategy

Addressing the media Friday at the Africa Regent Hotel, Alex stressed that he went into the reality show without faking anything, adding that his strategy and life in the Big Brother House were genuine. To him, he entered the reality show with an open mind and did not play any of the housemates.

The sleek looking Ghanaian reiterated that going into the competition, he visualized himself with money, and had the feeling and confidence that he was going to win the money. Although he did not win the money, he rated his overall performance as excellent. “On a scale of one to ten, ten being the highest, one being the least, I will definitely rate myself an eleven.”

Although it’s been almost a week since he was evicted, remaining housemates in the show seem to miss the Ghanaian as some of his phrases are still being used and his name constantly on their lips.

Passionate kiss

Alex was caught up with Miss P, Weza and Millicent. Considering the twist and turns that his hot relationship with the three, especially Miss P and Weza, there was no way the curious journalists who turned up for the press conference will let questions about the affairs go unanswered.

On Weza, the ‘Lover Boy’ disclosed that, “Me kissing Weza, that was all physical. It was never a strategy, I just took advantage of situations…I definitely think that the kiss Weza and I shared was more passionate…it was a good kiss,” adding he has feelings for Weza and believes that anything is possible when it comes to Weza and Miss P.

He had a lot of good moments and was well connected with her fellow housemates. “I definitely knew my housemates and I miss them all.” He maintained that if he gets a second chance into the house, “I wouldn’t do anything different…it will be worse for them.”

Sex in the house

The Big Brother Africa reality show has come under the radar several times with many criticizing and bashing the show for being ‘unAfrica’ and also promoting immorality.

Ask which housemates might have had sex in the house, Alex hinted that there were rumors that Ernest and Bhoke, Kim and Nic, Kim and Lomwe might have had sex in the house.

He was however quick to distance himself from any sexual activity stating that there were a lot of opportunities for him to also get involved sexually with some of the female housemates but he opted out due to his core African values.

Big Brother Amplified winners

To Alex, the two housemates who are in the forefront of winning this season’s Big Brother Africa (Amplified) show are Nigeria’s Karen and South Africa’s Luclay.

Although he will not be quick to judge, he said the game is still open, but if Karen and Luclay, keep viewers entertained, then “by all means they should take it”.

This season’s show will see two housemates walk away with US$200,000 each.


Son of a diplomat, the charismatic Alex had the privilege of traveling the world over, and only returned to the country recently when his father passed away.

Although he started his early life and school at the Achimota primary school to Achimota Secondary School, Alex spent most of his life in the States. It was in one of his visits to Ghana that he chanced on the Big Brother auditions.

With a life full of glitz and drama, Alex Biney worked for Russell Simmons, co-founder of Def Jam and the creator of Phat Farm. At a point in his life, he got into a ‘little’ trouble that got him jailed for two months.

The future

As to the future, the 12th housemate to be evicted from the reality show said he is open to possibilities and opportunities, but expressed great interest in the media. For the mean time, he intends going back to his love profession, fashion, and possibly relaunch his trade in Ghana.

He disclosed that he has been touched by an initiative that his fans here in Ghana have started. The initiative, ‘Team Alex’, is into charitable activities and promised to throw his full weight behind the initiative.

He explained that the name Boma Ye which was widely used in the house, was a nick name culled from the legendary boxer Mohammed Ali – meaning Kill Him. “If I choose the name Boma Ye, it means I’m a winner and everything I do I accomplish it to the teeth,” he said.
