BBA: Namibian, Dilish Wins 300,000 USD

Namibian, Dillish on Sunday night won the coveted $300,000 star prize on Big Brother Africa.

It was a beautiful event as all the previously evicted housemates came back to celebrate with the winner.

After 90 days of staying in the Big Brother house, the top five; Elikem, Melvin, Cleo, Beverly and Dillish donned in their beautiful attires anxiously awaited the final results.

First to be evicted of the five was Beverly, who proudly walked out of the house into the cheering crowd and  was greeted with a hug and kiss from Angelo. Next came Melvin who obviously wasn’t happy to have not gotten the money but bravely put on a smile to meet the crowd.

The eviction of the two Nigerians from the house on the Grande finale caused a stir among Nigerians who concluded that keeping Melvin and Beverly in the house was a tactic to keep the Nigerian audience.

Elikem was evicted after this, but he won a $10,000 expense paid trip by Big Brother to Kenya with a partner of his choice, he picked Pokello who he already started an affair with during their stay in the house.

Finally, Dillish and Cleo were left in the house, the two hotties beat their male and female counterparts, Elikem and Melvin to the Top 2, as well as their close friend Beverly.

When the last person, Cleo, was evicted, the Namibian broke down in a heap of tears at the realization that she had won a cool $300, 000.

She doesn’t really have any role models, choosing rather to take unique attributes from different people. Asked who has influenced her life most, Beverley says “who I want to influence me all depends on the situation at hand”.

He is hoping to use all his experience and charm to go all the way on Big Brother. If he wins the grand prize, he’ll invest it, but he’s also hoping to make his country proud and use this experience as a platform to achieve other things in his career
