Big Brother Africa
Big Brother Africa Star Game Grand Finale -$300,000 Prize Money. Uganda’s Jannette stumbled one step short of the Big Brother StarGame final as she became the 8th housemate to be evicted from the Upville house (on July 29). After escaping being nominated for 11 weeks, luck ran out on her last Monday as she fell afoul of Wati and Lady May, and in effect received fewer country votes than Kyle, Lady May and Prezzo who were also up for eviction this week to see her time in the house come to an end.
Jannette’s departure means that there are six housemates left in the running for the USD 300 000 prize, which will be awarded next Sunday during a spectacular live finale. Lady May, Prezzo, Wati, Talia, Keagan and Kyle need Africa’s votes to determine which of them wins Big Brother StarGame! Big Brother Africa Big Brother Africa Big Brother Africa
Last Sunday’s night show was packed with drama as DJ Pita from Uganda’s Sanyu FM spun the decks, Angola’s Young Nucho performed ‘I’m Not Wayne’ while South African hip-hop stars, Jozi rocked the house with ‘Baby Don’t Cry’. Big Brother Africa Big Brother Africa Big Brother Africa
It had been a massive week in the Big Brother house as housemates worked hard to win their ‘ONE Campaign’ task, and had celebrity shout outs and visitors in the shape of Mary J. Blige, Bono, Nas, Melanie Fiona, Zolani Mahola and Nigeria’s own 2Face Idibia. Kyle had some regrets about putting Keitta up for eviction last week, while Jannette struggled to come to terms with her first nomination. Big Brother Africa Big Brother Africa
Last week’s evictees, Alex and Keitta, have had a busy time since leaving the Big Brother StarGame house and viewers got to hear all about it. Alex said he’d like to be remembered as the guy who was always ‘chilled out’ while Keitta wanted people to think of him as the guy who was the ‘fun of the house’. Alex learned to respect different people’s opinion and said he had felt particularly close to Yadel. Keitta said his instincts had told him that Kyle had put him up for eviction as part of his ‘save and replace’ decision, which made his eviction ‘easier’, because in his words: “it’s just a game”.

The time had come, though, for Wati to reveal his ‘save and replace’ decision to his housemates at the end of a pivotal week. IK asked the Malawian to stand and explain his decision. He said that he had realised that there were two Ugandans in the house, so had opted to put Kyle up in his place to test Africa’s feelings about them. Big Brother Africa
IK didn’t waste time, returning to the house to reveal the result of Africa’s votes for the week. After revealing the fates of the rest of the nominees, the spotlight did indeed fall upon the two Ugandans. After a tense wait, IK revealed that the 8th housemate to be evicted from Upville would be Jannette.
‘Small Princess’ joined IK on stage and discussed her famous dance moves, party antics and alter ego ‘Lola Fierce’. She admitted that she found Nigerian housemate Ola ‘really sexy’ and said that she had made peace with Wati during the course of her final day as she felt that if she was to be evicted, she wanted to leave the house on good terms. The Ugandan said she had come into Big Brother StarGame to have fun - and certainly did! She was surprised to see that Lady May had nominated her, but had expected a nod from Wati.
