NAIROBI, October 21 – It’s a manly affair at the Big Brother House after yet another woman left the house over weekend, 27-year-old Ghanaian Mimi.
She had been up for eviction with Zambia’s Takondwa and Thami from South Africa, and was shocked to have been the fifth housemate to go home.
After a second of shock, the Ghanaian reluctantly left the house and joined KB on stage, where she told him that life would go on.
“I know the housemates will be surprised that I won’t be going back”, she said. And how right she was – as Africa watched Thami and TK rejoin their clearly-shocked housemates.
“Everyone’s a player in there,” said Mimi. “People have confusing strategies, and it’s not easy. All the people in there are smart people and every time you change your strategy, they change theirs and its tough!” she narrated.
The 27 year old who loves dancing was surprised to see that Munya and Hazel had nominated her, but expected it from Morris and Tawana. “Munya played Ricco and I – Ricco should be careful,” said Mimi. “But you can’t blame anyone for playing you in there.”
“What will you miss about the house?” asked KB. “The Big Brother house would be nothing without the people in it,” said Mimi “So I’ll miss them the most!” With that she walked down the ramp to greet her mother.
Mimi picked up 10 votes (Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the Rest of Africa) to 3 for TK (Angola, Ghana and Namibia), while Thami didn’t collect a single country vote.
Meanwhile, in an exciting surprise twist to the game, an unexpected visitor, Johan from Big Brother Finland, made his entrance into the African show and was replaced my Munya!
During the week, Munya’s imaginative Fortune Cookie message won him an unexpected trip and he was whisked from the Diary Room to Finland.
In exchange, 22 year-old lifeguard Johan, who has already spent 8 weeks in the Big Brother Finland house came in, spending his first night in the BBA penthouse before being introduced to his new housemates on Monday morning.
Hazel and Thami also finally made peace. The two were not on speaking terms until Tuesday. In what was a busy week for Thami, he started to show feelings for Hazel, only to discover the feeling was not mutual. He stopped speaking to her and she did the same but they kissed and made up and promised never to fight again.
The latest Big Brother Africa Sunday show kicked off with a performance by award-winning South African hip hop group Koldproduk. Next audiences got a sneak peek at Sheila’s busy post-eviction media interview day, before she flew back to Nairobi where she was greeted by hordes of fans and fielded questions at a press conference. Viewers also saw Nigerian housemate Uti’s eviction party back home – and what a fun night it was as Uti danced, celebrated and had a great time meeting and greeting fans!
