Last Night, Africa said goodbye to Big Brother StarGame housemate – Mampi. The 25 year old Zambian R & B singer who was the first Upville housemate to be evicted from the hit show, was sent home after receiving the lowest number of country votes from Africa this week.
Here are all the details from the eviction
The show kicked off with a performance by Tanzanian hip-hop artiste Diamond Platinumz, after which DJ Umculo from Namibia’s Fresh FM kept the studio audience jumping through out the show with the best of African hits.
BBA host – I.K Osakioduwa then gave viewers the chance to see all the most memorable highlights in Upville including DKB throwing his weight around as Head of House, a surprise visit from DJ Euphonik and a wager victory and in Downville, where romance blossomed, Keagan shouting his way through the week as Head of House and then won this week’s Head of House challenge too. Soon after, viewers were also given the chance to hear from last week’s evicted housemates – Luke, Dalphin and Yadel.
Luke said that his time in the house had been “crazy” and quite unlike anything he’d ever experienced before and further said that he would miss Jessica as their relationship had bloomed and he’d felt like he’d known her for years. Sierra Leone’s Dalphin said her time on Big Brother StarGame had helped her learn how to live with other people with different characters and backed her friend Zainab to do well in Upville. Yadel said she had loved everything about the StarGame experience, especially Big Brother’s commanding voice. She insisted that her relationship with Alex was purely platonic and that she still had a boyfriend at home.
Then the moment of truth finally came, the Sizwe Ntsaluba Gobodo auditor delivered the results envelope to IK on stage and confirmed that its contents had been verified. IK then took viewers into the house and asked Ghana’s DKB to reveal his ‘save and replace’ decision to the rest of the Upville housemates. After stating that his decision wasn’t personal, he broke the news that he has replaced himself with Lady May which prompted the Namibian to leap from the couch and shout “I knew it!”. IK then asked her, Mampi and Maneta to stand and revealed that she and Maneta were safe but unfortunately Mampi was evicted and asked to leave the Big Brother house.
When she finally got on stage, IK got chatting with her and asked about her beef with DKB and the most difficult part of life in the house. She said that she thought DKB had been interested in her and she was ready to leave as she had really missed her family during her time in Upville. On who she’ll be voting for, Mampi said it will definitely be her “spidermate” Maneta but thinks Zainab would win the grand prize of $ 300,000.
After she left, Buhle and the auditor from Sizwe Ntsaluba Gobodo joined IK on stage to start a random nomination of the Downville housemates. The first ball out of the cube bore the country name “Ghana”, meaning that Mildred and Keitta were the first randomly nominated pair. After letting the housemates stew through a dynamic dance performance on stage, IK shocked everyone that there would be a second random nomination. Buhle spun the cube and Botswana’s ball dropped into the container meaning that Edith and Eve join their Ghanaian counterparts on the chopping block this week.
The show ended with an exciting rendition of Moyo Wangu by Diamond Platinumz.
