From Big Brother Africa to the Altar? BBA Revolution Housemates Kevin Chuwang Pam & Elizabeth Gupta reportedly engaged



Big Brother Africa has provided great voyeuristic entertainment over the last few years but has the show created a perfect love match?

A few weeks ago we spotted a photo of Big Brother Africa Revolution winner – Kevin Chuwang Pam with fellow BBA Revolution housemate Tanzanian TV Presenter/Actress Elizabeth “Lizzy” Gupta at a party in Abuja. Then last week, Kevin released the first set of singles from his new album and alas one of the tracks is a Swahili track called “Una Pata Mambo”  and it features Lizzy and Stitched. At that point, we knew something was definitely up!

Earlier today, this posting popped up on a Big Brother Africa forum accompanied by a photo of Kevin and Lizzy kissing.

Breaking News! Last Saturday (21 Aug) while at the Ogus Baba Laugh Goes On comedy club in Port Harcourt, Big Brother Revolution winner, Kevin Chuwang Pam and his lady friend, and Revolution contestant Elizabeth Gupta got up on stage and performed a track together.

Nigeria’s biggest comedian, Ali Baba introduced the couple to the 2000 strong crowd. Once they’d finished performing “Una Pata Mambo” (Anything you want, right there you get it), Kevin went down on one knee and proposed to Elizabeth. He said he kept it simple and just asked: “Elizabeth, will you marry me?”.

The crowd started screaming: “say yes, say yes, say yes” and obviously she did. Kevin then says a woman broke free from the crowd, ran onto the stage and congratulated them both with a huge hug.

This was followed by congratulatory Facebook status messages from fellow Big Brother Revolution Africa stars including Geraldine. BN followed up with calls to sources close to the couple and they confirmed the engagement though we are working on getting absolute confirmation from the couple.

Ken & Lizzy spotted in Abuja a few weeks ago

The news might come as a surprise to some BBA fans though! During the show last year, Kevin was obviously crushing on Elizabeth and she was blowing “hot and cold”, she made it clear that she liked him but couldn’t see them having a relationship. She also shared that she had “never dated a black guy” and also said “Kevin was too short for her”!
It is great to see them get together and let’s not chastise Lizzy for her previous comments. If only things we said about people who turned out to be future girlfriends/boyfriends/husbands/wives were caught on tape! We would all be so guilty.

Congrats to Kevin and Elizabeth. The past 12 months have been amazing for Kevin, first he became the first Nigerian to win Big Brother Africa and picked up a $200,000 cheque for his efforts and now he is reportedly engaged to the love of his life. Up next for Kevin is the release of his debut album, his singles “Wok Pichak” featuring Stitched, “Una Pata Mambo” featuring Stitched and Lizzy, “Thank You” and “Dance Hall Nice” are already getting airplay on the radio. Elizabeth is also working on her music and acting career, she featured in a Tanzanian movie entitled “Danger Zone” earlier in the year.

BN will update you once we get confirmation from Kevin or Lizzy on the engagement.

    This nigga is blind and totally dumb, c’mon don’t you have fam, this babe even said it in the house with all your affections and love that you are not her kind of man, she likes her man tall. She went on to gossip bout you and it was obvious she only used you as a strategy but pple kicked her out b4 she becomes an obstacle.

    Now you dissapoint your fans because of those 2 full oranges on her chest (Yes she has fine boobs, no homo). She only loves your ‘now’ fat pocket.

  6. mo!

    August 24, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    Hmmmmmmm! Its all about d benjamins baby, so lizzy claimed kevin was to short, so can she boldly say dat he has increased in heigjt between now and den or has he started putting on heels lol! 200,000 dollars is no joke, girls will be girls

  7. jezz

    August 24, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    August 24, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    hello all, pls leave them alone. kevin loves the babe. the babe behaved well.if she had messed up herself in the bba house, you all wld have complained

  10. Enoh

    August 24, 2010 at 11:52 pm

    she behaved like a true lady and got herself a husband that loves her

  11. Enoh

    August 24, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    the babe loved kevin all the while in bba house but was not sure the guy was real following her previous experience. Her last day in the house, she was all over him with her eyes knowing fully well that she might not have the chance to see him again. she spent her entire day with kevin on the same small one seater upholstery

  12. Enoh

    August 24, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    they even went to have their bath together. i knew all the while that they were in love but had to wait and get out to see where and how far it goes

  13. Enoh

    August 24, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    Love you Kevin and Elizabeth, congratulations on your engagement.

    Well, I guess with money in your pocket, you can be tall and white in the lady’s eye. Kelvin, humble guy too. Most guys are not the same when they hammer. I’m surprised, I didn’t expect his eye to even recognize her again.

    Thing is even though money can’t buy love, it sure puts u in a great bargaining position. Dat’s wat has played out here. She may not have accepted his proposal solely 4 d cash but d money did improve his chances. And 2 kevin, whoever says money can’t buy happiness or love indeed doesn’t know where 2 shop. Naija pikin has proven it once again…..Gbagaun!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. Blackberry

    August 25, 2010 at 11:43 am

    @Tbag – so true!

    Obviously she was waiting to see if kevin would win the money before she rolls with him. For the most part, she treated him like a pest in the house. All of a sudden, he is no longer black or short. Whatever happened to the Oyinbo guy she claimed to be dating while she was in the house, he did not have $200,000?

  33. Mwajuma

    August 25, 2010 at 12:33 pm

      Please Naija ladies, don’t criticize other African ladies that they are not worth it! Come visit the Nigerian men here in Tz, you’ll see them drooling over our very dainty female bodies and beautiful faces. It’s a shame they are already married and have children, otherwise they would bring more Tz ladies as wives into Naija. Heheheeee.

  44. Esther

    August 26, 2010 at 9:33 am

    what do u guys mean by “girls will be girls” how much is $200,000 in naira? don’t u think that Kevin must have spent half of that money in one year if not all of it?…..when a woman marries a man who is well to do, people will say she married him for his money….are u guys trying to say that girls don’t fall in love with guys who are well to do.

    seriously, i understand where you guys are coming from. she really treated Kevin like a pest in the house, at a point the thing was vexing me sef. but maybe she was protecting herself even though the comments she made were not nice.

    i wish them all the best sha. Kevin is a good guy and i hope for her its not about the benjamins…

    why should they get engaged? can’t it just be dating for a while? why the hurry? or is it for tv another show? i know some who never want to say “dating” (unchristianly) but the truth is marriage is hard work even when you find the one you love. i do wish them the best.

    ..wish them love endurance and happiness, i personally find Liz’s fiery temper very unforgettable, but i know Kevin is one guy that God has blessed with some wisdom and i expect he will have grace to manage that ., apart from this there are the Good and lovely sides to Lovely Liz., this is not about Kevin’s money, i dare to posit she’s not like that., let’s get positive
