The curtains for the popular TV show Big Brother Africa and this time comprising of former stars went down on the 17th of July with Nigeria's Uti taking the USD 200,000 and Munya coming close to taking the day as the race was tight with just a difference of one vote between Uti and Munya.
The moment was so sad for Munya who had literally been up for eviction and survived all the times he faced Africa only to come out as first runner up. No wonder he could not help tears from flowing down his cheeks.
The latest information we are getting from Zimbabwe is that Munya has come out of this whole process far richer than Uti. The President gave him US Dollars 200,000 as a consolation prize for loosing to Uti and businessmen contributed another US Dollars 100,000 making Munya 100,000 US Dollars richer than Nigeria's Uti.
Another local Indian company dealing in Gold gave him a ring worth US Dollars 20,000 and appointed him a diamond ambassador just because he carried himself as the diamond boy while in the house. Code Sangala from Malawi said, "Being named the diamond ambassador is a milestone for great things to come."
The celebrity status that comes with being a reality TV star is short lived for many who may sit back an lay on their pillows but Munya is certainly not one of them.

Its been 91 days of fun and at the end of it all Uti Nwachukwu has won the Big Brother All stars taking the US Dollars 200,000 prize plus the one thousand dollars after fellow housemates failed to guess his secret. The show kicked off with highlights of the five finalists before crossing to the evicted housemates that came on stage one by one.
Sammy led the evicted housemates followed by our own Hannington Kuteesa who the crowd cheered for some minutes before other evicted housemates joined to be part of the show. When Meryl came on stage, she was asked to choose between the money and the man, she chose her man Mwisho.
The first housemate to leave the house was Sheila from Kenya who said that it was hectic being in the house for 91 days but now she is going to have fun. Mwisho followed her in that order leaving behind three housemates i.e. Lerato, Munya and Uti.
Mwisho left with his $ 1,000 as no one got his secret which was to do with dating twoTanzanian babes at the same time and when they learnt of it, bottles were exchanged over their heads.
The third housemate to leave the house after Mwisho, and Sheila had left was Lerato. Its funny how Lerato beats Mwisho a bonafide finalist and yet for her she fluked to bounce back to the house after a game/twist that was put up by Big Brother. This is what marked the closure of the barn house.
This was followed by a music interlude that saw Wyre on stage do his ''Say Dat'' track before IK bounced back with how one MNET Official felt about the show and among others she noted the proposal in the house plus the barn house which were very unique when it came to the Big Brother All Stars.
The man who has made every woman on the African continent feel like a queen came on stage and this was none other than 2Face Idibia and shortly after, it was time to know the winner of the Big Brother Africa All Stars and the winner was Uti with 8 countries voting for him and 7 countries for Munya who was in shock.
The Big Brother All stars kicked off on July 18 with 14 contestants from 14 countries and has been broadcasting live on channel 198 which was exclusive to those on DSTV. Uganda was represented by Hanningtion Kuteesa who got disqualified after a fight with South Africa's Lerato who finished third in the popular live television show that ended on July 17, 2010.

Like we predicted in our last posting Kaone and Tatiana were long finished, indeed that is exactly what we witnessed in the Sunday eviction show. IK started off by calling Munya's name leaving him more tensed than never before but he told him he was safe.
He crossed to Kaone and evicted him very fast from the house before the show headed for commercials. On coming back, Uti's name was called followed by a minute silence before he was set free on mentioning Tatiana's name.
Uti simply broke down to tears and seconds later thanked Africa for saving him as Tatiana made her way to the stage to answer a few questions from IK.
The Top Five
Mwisho has pushed till the end and though he is not anywhere close to the money, he has managed to make it to the top five. Had the game been on for more weeks, Mwisho would still be in because he had won the head of house task but no worries at all for him, now that he won Meryl's heart.
The other top finalists are Sheila from Kenya, Uti from Nigeria, Lerato who fluked to bounce back to the house, and Munya from Zimbabwe. The game ends next week when we will be unveiling who takes the US Dollars 200,000
Munya is still Africa's Best
Tatiana and Kaone got no votes at all confirming that at this point in time they had no game going for them. Munya got nine votes saving him as opposed to Uti's six votes.

The game has just started as housemates who are not meant for the money are now heading back home for real. Yesterday Paloma, Code, Meryl and Jen were evicted from the barn house and now this coming week, 2 housemates will be leaving.
The housemates up for eviction are Kaone, Uti, Munya and Tatiana. Kaone did very well the week Meryl got evicted and in the week that followed, there were no evictions, instead 3 housemates Sheila, Tatiana and Lerato bounced back to the house.
Kaone is 'Finished'
The race is between Uti and Munya and without wasting anytime, those two will be left and we will concentrate on Tatiana and Kaone. The housemate from Botswana is having his last time in the house and will try his "why do you fool with the youth in me" elsewhere.
Big Brother has already informed the housemates that 2 of them are leaving next week. Tatiana having tasted the barn simply confirms that Africa had actually thrown her out, and the mere fact that she came second to Sheila, it only means that Sheila had more votes than her to bounce back to the main house.
After Tatiana leaves the house, it will leave Kaone who was among the last men standing but also the weakest of all.

The best dancer in the Barn, Jen from Mozambique, Guitarist Code Sangala from Malawi who also doubles as the most laid back housemate, recently engaged Meryl from Namibia and Big Momma Paloma from Zambia have been evicted from the Big Brother game.
The four housemates plus the three who bounced back have been playing the game from the barn house which had a lot to do with taking care of the hens and the cow. The barn which has been on for ten weeks is now closed and there is no more ''massaging'' housemates who fall out with Africa after this.
The game now has the last four men standing in the main house i.e. Munya, Uti, Kaone and Mwisho, the previous and current head of house together with the three former barnmates, Sheila, Tatiana and Lerato who bounced back in that order.
We could see another couple getting cozy or even trying out the engagement stunt out of Uti and Sheila who both have a thing for each other. As the barnmates were being given a count down to leave the barn, Code had forgotten his guitar, so he ran for it as Meryl was more than happy to go home.
Lerato is still in the Game
Sheila and Tatiana Bounce Back to the Main House

This is certainly not good news for Uganda after the person who caused Hannington Kuteesa problems still has a game going for her after the T-shirt she was wearing emerged to be the number housemates unanimously selected.
After Sheila and Tatiana had beat all the housemates in going back to the main house, the barn was left with Lerato, Code, Paloma, Meryl and Jen. Big Brother full of surprises came up with another twist which involved barnmates putting on white T-shirts that had a picture of a zebra and codes.
The T-shirts were all white so Biggie made it a point that both barnmates and housemates at this time see each other. They put five stars before the housemates with each star representing a barnmate and asked them to choose one.
They were then told to select one envelope which happened to be envelope number 4 with code WNSQBBA5 which happened to be on Lerato's T-shirt and that is how she also bounced back to the main house joining Uti, Munya, Kaone, Mwisho by the way who is next week's head of house and the man to watch in tomorrows nominations.
Three former Barnmates have joined the main house but the only difference this brings to the main house is to introduce female housemates to house that had otherwise become ''The Men's Camp"

The show kicked off with Biggie telling the housemates to go upstairs and close all the doors until further notice as a profession dentist Dr. Sid rocked the stage with 'something about you'.
The first barnmate to go back into the Big Brother house was Sheila. Remember we ran a poll and Sheila beat all the barnmates with 73% followed by Tatiana at 15%. This is exactly how it turned out in the Sunday show.
Biggie came out with a twist and put the two former barnmates under a table that was well equipped with drinks and told the housemates to go down stairs. Initially Biggie had thought that it would take them a longer time to discover the housemates below the table but it only took them a few seconds as Munya opened the cloth under the table only to discover Tatiana and Sheila comfortably seated under the table.
Hugs and kisses followed as Uti was more than happy to meet the love of his life Sheila who is now very much aware that Util has feelings for her.
