Before Big Brother, I was into entertainment. Big Brother Africa was just a platform for me to do what I wanted to do. Before now, I wanted to be an actress, I wanted to be a reverend sister, but things did not just work out the way I planned it.

Read Time:32 Second
A week ago, Africa’s biggest reality show, Big Brother Africa (BBA) crowned Dillish Matthews the winner of BBA- The Chase.
 
The same week, a Namibian journalist exclusively interviewed Dillish where she said she was looking for her biological father.
 
Dillish has never come face-to-face with him and only learned about him from her mother. And now, a Kenyan man, who claims to be Dillish's father has come out to say he fathered Dillish during his peacekeeping mission in Namibia.
 
Her mum once said she lost contact with her real dad when he stopped replying her letters.

BBA 2013: No regrets from Beverly

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 24 Second

LIKE or hate it, the 2013 edition of the Big Brother Africa reality show tagged The Chase got its desired attention and it’s no gainsaying that our own Beverly Osu, the only contestant who was never up for eviction throughout the duration of the show and of course Melvin, contributed to making the reality show a mind-blowing experience for viewers. Just back into the country, Beverly and Melvin shared their ordeal.

Did they feel bad that they came, saw but never conquered? This is what they both had to say: “Well, we were not cheated. It is the votes. In the Big Brother House we were very united. The winner deserved to win. Melvin is on One Campaign and I broke record. Fair enough, we didn’t come out winners, but we came out with something.”

One of the things that made this year’s BBA tick was the ‘Nigerian factor’ and Beverly brought it on in full glare. But that apart, the X-factor as most viewers have stated, was the amount of nudity on display. Beverly notes: “I took my bath naked. We all did and I couldn’t be different. I did not bring out the video, Big Brother did, so I should not be judged, I represented Nigeria well.”

Refuting the general opinion, Beverly says that she did represent Nigeria well. She also cleared the air on having sex with her South African lover, Angelo. “I would say I did not have sex in the house and I never had sex in the house. I had a relationship, and we didn’t have sex.”

To cap it all, Beverly revealed she doesn’t have any regrets as far as the show is concerned. “I’m a very open person. I say what is on my mind. And for me to reveal myself to the world, it didn’t feel like I was revealing myself to the world. I was talking to my housemates. I don’t regret the things I said about myself and my family. Because if I am on this platform, people have to know the real me and what I have been through.” Now that BBA is over and she’s back home, just what’s next for Beverly? The undergraduate student at the National Open University where she’s studying Mass Communication said, “Before going into the house, I was into entertainment. Before I left I had a show called Beverly… I am pushing it. And if you watch Big Brother, you would have seen that I can act. So I am going into movies. And I have to finish school, because I am just in 200L at the National Open University studying Mass Communication.

U.S. ‘Big Brother’: The return of Judd and a new HoH

0 0
Read Time:5 Minute, 24 Second
You’ll have to excuse me; I’m going through something of a metaphysical crisis. I’ve been having difficulty coming to terms with the fact that I’m spending my Sunday night writing about a television program that devotes a not unsubstantial amount of time to a 22-year-old woman inadvertently drinking nail polish remover. So if you detect a slight tinge of sadness in this week’s blog, it’s that. 
 
Last week, we saw the whimper-not-a-bang eviction of Helen and the announcement of a shocking twist: one of the four jurors – Helen included – would have the opportunity to re-enter the game! 
 
Andy is terrified by the news: “I was BFFs with all of them,” he sobs, “and then voted them all out!” Correct me if I’m wrong, Andy, but isn’t that a fundamental flaw with your approach to the game, regardless of this new twist? Being voted out by someone who repeatedly professes his unyielding affection for you – as we have witnessed Andy do to evicted houseguests on several occasions – stings far more than being evicted by a houseguest who makes clear that “it’s just a game.” As a result, it’s going to be tough for Andy to win Big Brother. He’s well-positioned and doesn’t seem to be anyone’s target, but his insistence on cultivating ostensibly deep bonds with everyone (and then voting them out) leaves a bad taste in evicted houseguests’ mouths. Almost as bad, I should think, as the taste of nail polish remover. The re-introduction of a player into the game will, at worst, only serve to hasten Andy’s already inevitable downfall. 
 
When the dust has settled, it’s Judd who’s back in the game, and he’s got some harsh words for the house’s King and Queen: “Amanda and McCrae better watch their backs, because I don’t trust them at all.” If the rest of this season is any indication, we can expect this threat from Judd to mean that he will do everything in his power to obediently serve Amanda and then patiently bide his time until he’s evicted.

Things look up for Judd, however, when the new HoH is crowned: Elissa, who confides in Judd, “I just don’t like anyone in here.” The two resolve to join forces and shake up the house. It speaks to the likability of the remaining houseguests that the pairing of Judd and Elissa is basically the closest we can get to having an alliance worth rooting for. I mean, I don’t especially care for either Judd or Elissa, but they’re the best we’ve got. They’re our heroes: Aquaman’s mumbling nephew and Wonder Woman’s moderately athletic neighbor. 
 
After Elissa’s HoH win, her nomination picks seem obvious. With only eight people remaining in the house, a power couple as close and strategic as McCrae and Aman—oh, wait. Elissa has something to say: “Aaryn is my number one target this week.” Great. Perfect. Why target two competent players who are unwaveringly dedicated to each other when you can focus all your energy on ousting a universally disliked, impressionable young woman who spends her free time coating her esophagus with nail polish remover? Bravo, Elissa. 
 
Despite having apparently dodged what should have been a very obvious bullet, Amanda and McCrae still find something to complain about, with the possibility that one of them may be nominated. “I feel defeated,” Amanda moans. “Does she not understand it’s a bad idea to put you or me up next to Aaryn,” she asks McCrae, displaying a shocking lack of self-awareness. 
 
Amanda’s an interesting player, perhaps most noteworthy for her bizarrely bipolar presence within the game. While she wields an impressive Svengali-like hold over most of the house – dictating virtually every nomination – she is prone to juvenile tantrums the very second things fail to go her way. It’s wild that the same person who gloats, “When you come after me, you leave the house,” is also the emotionally fragile child who cries behind a garbage can when she doesn’t win a competition. Amanda exists only in extremes: either the egomaniacal euphoria of maintaining complete control over the house, or outraged self-victimization and distress when things go even the slightest bit wrong. She’s the Veruca Salt of Big Brother, grown so accustomed to getting golden eggs that the thought of a receiving a silver one is too distasteful to bear. 
 
And what of McCrae, the tragic King Macbeth in this relationship? Remember when he used to be a happy-go-lucky, floppy-haired jester who’d crack wise about being a pizza-delivery boy? McCrae’s youthful exuberance and wide-eyed wonder have long since left him, leaving behind a lifeless husk. The only emotion he seems capable of expressing at this point is fear of how Amanda will react to any sort of setbacks in the game. 
 
In the end, Elissa stays committed to her goal of “get[ting] one of the big players out” and nominates (cough) Aaryn and McCrae, Aaryn being her primary target, and Amanda being her second choice. The motivation behind Elissa’s nominations seems to go beyond the merely strategic, however. “You’ve tried to make my life in this house as miserable as possible,” Elissa tells Aaryn. “I want everyone to be scared, because that’s how I feel every week.” By allowing her desire for emotion-based revenge to guide her nominations, Elissa misses out on a very clear opportunity to break up the most powerful couple in the house. We’ll have to wait and see whether she, like almost every other evicted houseguest in the game, ends up regretting this decision

Press Release: Final Eviction Show

Read Time:2 Minute, 54 Second

Namibia’s Dillish emerged victorious on Big Brother: The Chase tonight (25 August) after 91 days in the Big Brother house. She won more viewer votes than Beverley, Melvin, Elikem and Cleo in the final week, to scoop the USD300 000 prize and become the 3rd woman to win a season of Big Brother Africa.

She emerged on stage, tearful, to be greeted by her four fellow finalists and her man, Steven, who crowned her with a tiara. “Dillish, it’s official, you’re rich!” proclaimed Big Brother Africa host IK as fireworks and streamers signaled the end of 91 days of drama and intrigue.

The stunning 2-hour Finale, which was screended live on Africa Magic Entertainment and Channel 197 and 198 on DStv, kept viewers enthralled and amazed, with some of the continent’s hottest entertainers lighting up the stage as the tension built.

IK, who kicked off the show with a spectacular dance routine of his own, delivered the eviction news to Beverly and Melvin from the stage, before heading into the house to evict Elikem. He left Dillish and Cleo in the house to ponder their fate, before delivered the stunning news that Cleo was the final housemate to be evicted from The Chase – meaning that Dillish had won season 8 of Africa’s biggest reality show.

All the evicted housemates from throughout the season were on hand to wish the Namibian well, having been introduced to the crowd in pairs, earlier in the evening. Throughout the 2-hour spectacular, viewers had been treated to inserts about the romances in the house, the housemates’ original auditions, the introduction of the fake Emerald housemates and individual highlights of The Chase.

New Media specialist Boity Thulo joined IK on stage to remind viewers that they could relive all the magic of The Chase by visiting www.bigbrotherafrica.com to watch all the video highlights, from day 1 to 91. She also announced the winner of the ‘Most Romantic Gesture’ – Elikem, for making breakfast in bed for Pokello. He won an amazing holiday package: a 5-night all-expenses-paid trip for two, to the Sarova White Sands Hotel in Mombasa, Kenya, two return tickets from RwandAir and some spending money – all valued at USD10 000. He made no bones about the fact that he’d be taking Pokello along as his ‘plus one’!

The stage was graced by some of the continent’s hottest performing artists throughout the show, with Nigeria’s Ice Prince performing “Aboki”, Ghanaian duo R2Bees rocking out “Life (Walahi)” and Ugandan rap superstar Keko dominating with “See Ya”. There was even time for evicted housemate Sulu to make a cameo with the mic, performing “Ruby Ruby”, featuring Salma. South African DJ Ganyani played out the show as the credits rolled and would keep the after party going into the small hours.

The final set of viewer vote winners were: HD PVR Decoder – Rosenah Kulima (Zambia); Uhuru Tablet – Comfort Ahiadome (Ghana) and DStv Walka – Ngozika Inyamah (Nigeria). Their prizes – and all the other viewer vote prizes – will be delivered at the end of August.

And so, the curtain came down on 91 days of romance, suspense and pure entertainment. Big Brother: The Chase was headline sponsored by Airtel and produced by Endemol South Africa

Ghana Elikem is the Most Romantic Chasemate -Big brother Africa 2013

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 1 Second
Elikem is the Most Romantic Housemate of The Chase and walks away with a holiday valued at USD 10 000.

After three months of Africa Voting for their Most Romantic Gesture on a weekly basis, Elikem serving his girl Pokello breakfast in bed won the hearts of Big Brother The Chase viewers.

Though Hakeem proved to be quite the romantic with his real marriage proposal to his lady love Cleo, the gifts he brought her when they met in the Rendezvous Room and him asking her on a date during the first week of The Chase, it was Elikem's sole Romantic Gesture that hit the spot. Meanwhile, Koketso's strawberries and cream also failed to make the cut.

Elikem's Most Romantic Gesture prize package is as follows:

– a five-night, all expenses paid stay in a luxury room at the Sarova White Sands Hotel in Mombasa, Kenya with anyone he chooses to take.
– two return air tickets courtesy of Rwanda Air as well as spending money.
– The total prize package is USD 10 000.

Elikem, who had been Evicted from The Chase quickly said he would be sharing this prize with his lady love Pokello.

Dillish is the Winner of Big brother Africa 2013

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 45 Second

After expressing her desires to be the first woman to win the Big Brother grand prize since Zambia's Cherise did so seven seasons ago, Dillish has done it for all of Africa's women!

The gorgeous Namibian started her Chase race as the proverbial underdog and was labeled everything from lazy to a pampered princess. As the Chase rolled on however, Dillish quickly emerged as a very strong contender for the Chase title and won her fellow Housemates and Africa over, with her quirky, accented alter ego, aptly titled Princess Dillish.

The Namibian made sure to stay away from trouble and coasted through the Chase by taking her place behind the scenes. While her fellow Housemates got themselves into hot water, fighting and gossiping their way to what they hoped was the top of the mountain, Dillish remained grounded and maintained cordial relations with her fellow Housemates.

The only time the Namibian got herself in a spot of trouble was when she and her good friend, Nigeria's Melvin, had a disagreement after she told her fellow Housemates about a relationship he was involved in, which was less than stellar. Dillish and Cleo proved to all and sundry that women are indeed a force of nature. The two hotties pipped their male counterparts, Elikem and Melvin to the Top 2 while, as well as their close friend Beverly.

Before the big news was delivered, Pebbles the fish surprised all and sundry with one last speech. "On behalf of myself and the other fish, I would like to congratulate you on your amazing feat. You are the specialest ladies in Africa," Pebbles said.

However, one thing is clear! Tonight is Dillish's night and oh whata moment it was! As soon as the Namibian was announced the winner of the Chase, the Namibian broke down in a heap of tears at the realisation that she has a cool USD 300 000 sitting in her bank account. Yes Africa. She came, she saw and she conquered. In heels even! Congratulations to Delicious Dillish!

BBA 2013: Beverly and Melvin became the first two Chasemates in the Top 5 to be booted out

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 33 Second

After holding on for dear life and making it to the Finale, Nigeria's hopes of snatching the Chase crown went up in flames this evening, when Beverly and Melvin became the first two Chasemates in the Top 5 to be booted out.

The two Nigerians received the lowest votes after an intense round of voting this week. You could hear a pin drop as the Housemates, all dressed to the nines, sat in the lounge and awaited their fate. With USD 300 000 at stake, it is a given that nerves would be more than frayed.

The Top 5 held hands and mumbled silent prayers under their breath. When Live Show host IK finally decided to put the Chasemates out of their misery, Beverly unfortunately was the first to get the chop. Beverly ran her Chase race like a true soldier and made history for having never been Nominated for possible Eviction during her entire stay in the Big Brother House.

The sexy lingerie model even Chased love and eventually found it in South African choreographer and fellow Chasemate, Angelo. Melvin, on the other hand, was a model of sheer humility and kindness and proved to be very thoughtful throughout his Chase. The Nigerian became the first and only Housemate to sacrifice himself during a particularly difficult Nominations week.

Melvin, who was Head of House at the time, decided not to save himself from the Eviction gallows and left the Nominations list as is. Last week, he also chose to forego the possibility of winning himself jewellery worth USD 1 000 and gave his fellow Chasemates the opportunity to fight it out amongst themselves.

Despite not winning the USD 300 000 grand prize, we are proud to say that these two young African's are winners in their own right! Congratulations to them for reaching the Finale!
