Buddies, what else do we need to say! The third edition of Big Brother Africa is really fascinating compared to last year’s one, which saw Tanzania’s Richard walking away with a golden briefcase of USD100 000.
Its probably forgiving to say that Herbert Spencer’s phrase, “survival of the fittest”, suits the current situation in BBA.
The 12 housemates are practically doing their best to prove to millions of viewers across the continent that they are capable and fit for the BBA 3.
The key words here are: creativity, brilliancy and divert to each housemate. Now, remembering the other day’s preliminary evictions, both Uganda’s Morris and South Africa’s Thami looked unmoved when Biggie announced that they are temporarily on the doorstep.
They both pretended to be big men in a normal situation trying to show themselves in a position of handling the situation.
But as time goes on, things are changing. Thursday night, Morris looked very discouraged and the entire house could read his unease from his face.
He exposed his miserable heart, his inability to handle challenges. Poor man, it is a weak approach, but there is time for him to improve though, that’s what it is about the game; psychological and social challenges and how to deal with them.
On Thursday, Nigeria’s Uti challenged the entire house. He brought this issue that all housemates are lucky to be there and getting free publicity and freebies like food and all stuff in the house.
You can’t imagine the thunderous response he got from Ghana’s Mimi! She took a serious dig at Uti over the free food and the publicity thing.
As time ran out while they debated, Mimi claiming that it’s a win-win situation, Uti kept challenging the whole house and assured them that they are getting free publicity and free food, drinks and shower.
Amongst others, Angola’s Ricco came in on Uti’s side proving how their life will be different the moment they get out of the house. He defends Uti that everyone is now a celebrity because the entire continent is watching them.
And this became an issue of discussion as to how they benefit to be in the house after and the Biggy’s share from the show.
Then Ricco joined the other side with Kenya’s Sheila and Zambia’s Takondwa. They started having a puff. Suddenly Ricco started coughing.
Then he revealed that he is getting fat after spending all those days without going out to dance in club. And Sheila brags that he has spent time without having sex drugs and smoke.
As days pass, the behaviour of each housemate is changing, they are getting into real and personal attitudes yet a few days ago all tried to act their perceived strategies to win the game.
But things are getting tougher every day. Let’s see what next. I am rushing for shower hour now; I will tell you what I saw. Cheers!
