22 Year Old South African Keagan Petersen Wins Big Brother StarGame! Carts Away $300,000 Prize | Prezzo is the Runner Up



After a nail-biting finale, South African housemate – Keagan has been voted as the winner of the Big Brother Africa StarGame reality show.

The last portion of the finale came down to the trio of Keagan, Prezzo and Lady May. In the end, 22 Year Old South African Keagan prevailed.

There were hot performances from international stars including Naeto C and D’banj, however, all eyes were on the housemates including voted-off housemates who came back to the stage for the finale!

Runner-Up Prezzo was recognized for his charity awareness work in the house and has been chosen as a One Campaign ambassador and will jet off to New York to watch Jay-Z in concert.

Keagan carts away the mega $300,000 prize and possibly a relationship with fellow housemate Talia who gave him a tender kiss as she was voted off during the finale.

Official Press Release
The continent’s latest superstar has been born! Africa chose South Africa’s Keagan as the winner of AfricaMagic’s Big Brother StarGame last night (5 August on DStv Channel 197 & 198 at 20:00 CAT) – and rocketed him to superstardom and the massive USD 300 000 prize after 91 days of 24/7 drama and thrills.

Keagan, Kyle, Lady May, Prezzo, Talia and Wati were all in the running during the final week – but the man from Cape Town won Africa’s hearts and votes. Wati was the first housemate to be evicted on the night, followed by Kyle, Talia, Lady May and, finally, Prezzo. Keagan and Prezzo entered the game on two different sides – Downville and Upville, respectively – on 6 May and kept Africa entertained for 91 days.

The Big Brother StarGame Finale was a celeb-studded affair, kicking off with a special edition of STARGIST hosted by Vimbai Mutinhiri and Lawrence Maleka, who interviewed former Big Brother StarGame housemates, fans and business executives such as M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi and Olufemi Ashipa, Brand Manager Colas: Coca Cola Nigeria.

Stars of Big Brother seasons past were keen onlookers in the live studio audience, alongside VIP’s like Zinzi Mandela. African music superstars also took to the Big Brother stage to take the Finale to the next level. Nigerian hip-hop star D’Banj, Ugandan hip-hop powerhouse Navio, sizzling South African MC Khuli Chana, award-winning Ghanaian hip-life king Sarkodie and Nigeria’s phenomenal Afro-pop star Naeto C all rocked the stage, giving viewers a night they’ll never forget!

Big Brother StarGame dominated TV screens – but also rocked the online space! The show generated over 2 million messages to TV, over 2 million unique online browsers, 128 000 000 page views, over 250 000 Twitter followers and nearly 900 000 Facebook likes!

      Prezzo was never the one, he was always supported by 4 Countries out of 15 so please do not lie……The money went to someone who played the game and not schemed at badmouthed other contestants all the time…..Prezzo’s fakeness cost him in the end

    I just dont get it, how was Keagan so nice and gentle? No be the same Keagan that was rude and fought all the time specially in Downville? That called Junia’s mum a whore, poured water on Eve, swore a zillion times in a sentence? How did he treat Talia like a queen? By sleeping with her on continental TV with all the cameras on? Is that respect? If he truly loved and respected her, he would have waited. He is just a boy that got lucky simply because all the good candidates were ‘ojorolized’ out of the house to pave way for SA to win this year. People like Zainab and Ola. Anyway, hope he doesn’t drink away his money swearing and dancing azonto with Keitta and Wati! His relationship with Talia will not last, mark my words! What happened to Tatiana after Richard worn the money? I rest my case o jare!

    • what

      August 6, 2012 at 11:48 am

      As much as you type all his faults…..compared to what prezzo did….sorry keagan was the better choice……..i wanted lady may….buit i would rather Keagan win than prezzo…

      rude and he is just a boy as you said. he is a boy. now, this grandpapa of yours, he is 42 but he is rude, he doesn’t know how to treat a woman, he is ungrateful, he sweared at Goldie, a woman he claimed to love but just to use her as we all saw, he is a backstabber too, he thought he was the best thing that ever happened to BBA and the worst thing, he is very ugly. so Keagan is a boy and maybe that’s why he behaved the way he did.
      very embarrassing, grandpapa lost to the boy.

    Keagan was entertaining to me and he was real throghout. Prezzo was too fake for me and always trying to provoke people that threatened him. I was happy Keagan didn’t fall for that trap when he tried to hit him with the bottle. The only other person that deserved the money to me was Lady May. Poor Talia cracked in the very last week, before that I thought she had a good chance. I really feel bad for her. I hope she made the right decision though, or at least she can forgive herself. She looked really ashamed of the whole thing of hurting Seydou.

    August 6, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    @May-Jydda u took the words right out of my mouth! Keagan my foot! The dude was anythn but nice n gentle. So full of himself he couldn’t care less to dress up for the event. Grabbing Talia’s boobs n ass every chance he got (and that one even let him), swearing as a punctuation. Mscheww! He simply got lucky.

  36. kou morris

    August 6, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    it really should have been prezzo. i feel so bad. anyways, prezzo u did ur best. we will always remember u as d mansire warrior. i hope keagen use dat money wisely. as, 4 talia, she made a wrong decision saydou is a very handsome guy he will find a gud girl and talia is a loser.

    August 6, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    @May-Jydda I wish i could shake you hand right now. Keagan was just a compensating token for Luclay. SA will never win BBA ever again. I am SAn and didn’t support Keagan at all.

    • May-Jydda

    Who is that crap talkin rubbish about kee my questions are: had it been prezzo got d opportunity to f.. Goldie or zainab wouldn’t he have. Ok plus Goldie was still on d house when he was lustin after zainab plus always findin faults in others and Neva really accepting ppl d way they are. Most annoying part is that he’s always feelin like a Demi god always too big to apologize. Am so happy it’s not prezzo period

    @May-Jaydda, it seems like you’ve got issues, Keagan is only 22 yrs old for heaven’s sake. Why judge him so much? The poor boy won, he had no competition on the last six candidates.

    I’m so happy that K won and not bcom am South African bcos he played the game well. If people say he shouldn’t have won then who deserved the money on the last six? Lady M or Prezzo nah I don’t think so. This show is about entertainment and that’s what K did throught the 91 days.

    August 7, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    abeg jooor, i was sooo happy and jumped up wen i hrd he was d winner.He sooo deserved it out of d final 3 infact sef i ddnt wnt any of the upvillers to win excpt Roki…keagan was real and he used d f word bcz he is SA nd i feel he really likes Talia, its normal fr a guy to wnt to hv sex with u if he truly loves u its all up to the lady to control his desire which she evn fired up sef with all her kissin nd smoochin abeg d boy deserves to win , nt fake or 2 faced like Prezzo..very irritating old lookin native doctor,i soo hate him wt his 2kobo rap skills……njoi ur mooola.i wish i cn hug u for ur winning…mwah

    haters, go hang he won the girl and the mula. deal with it. lets meet next year and see if biggie will give it to kenya. i bet if they bring boring kenyans they will not will. Africa is looking for entertainment not pretenders like prezzo.

  51. lolo

    August 7, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    @lolitha, you should be ashamed of yourself. i bet u didn’t like him because he is colored and nothing else, sies man

    Really now , I watched the BB7 from day 1 for the first time ….. sleepless nights and getting hooked Keagan was fun , realistic dreamer,considerate of other HMs i can go on ……. even as a mother i could figure out how his frustrations made him swear ….. he was not a vulture in all that he shares he cares and he was tworn about her relationship with Talis condidering she was already commted but he was attracted to him from day one … if you watched their” happy hour corner sessions ” in Downville ………..should i continue : Thank God Keagan won cause i only voted him avoiding the fact that we complain after a person looses but we never vote hence i did my part to canvass from him as well…… lets all embrace it and do better next time …
