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.

BBA: Junia and Malonza get evicted

One of Big Brother’s most loved couple Junia and Malonza are no more in the House. They were the latest to bid farewell at the Stargame last night.

When it was time for the eviction, IK, the presenter, scared the 6 housemates that were put up for eviction, by calling out their names with so much sympathy.

Prezzo who was the first to be metioned showed so much fret in him, but fortunately for him he was saved by his fans.

Malonza whose name was also mentioned appeared not to be bothered, instead his girlfriend Junia broke down into tears.

When being asked by the presenter (IK) if the relationship was going to continue even after he leaves BBA, Malonza said “Anything that continues from here will be a plus but all I know is that Junia is a special friend.

He added that “what brought me joy at the Big Brother was the fact that I found Junia.”

When the time for the second eviction came, Goldie was so nervous that Prezzo (the evicted)  had to pat  her at the back but he got lucky.

Well, when it was time to depart the house, Junia smiled while hugging others and whispered “At least am leaving with him.”

It is clear that these two have genuine feelings for each other and they now finally have a chance to see if their love is for real.

BBA: Keitta survives eviction while Barbz gets evicted

It was a hard time for Goldie to reveal her replacement, when she called out Keitta’s name he looked surprised but calm and went straight to pack his things.

Goldie feeling guilty went on her knees to beg Barbz as she had to choose between her man Prezzo and Barbz who were on the nomination list, Barbz in calmness and hurt accepted her apology.

The anchor of the show IK, simply called Keitta and told him he wasn’t leaving the show, instead Barbz was evicted leaving just one South Africa (Keagan) in the house.

Now Keitta knows he has to leave no stones on-turned as he knows anybody can nominate him at any time.
