Evicted Big Brother Africa housemates, Samantha, and Mr. 265, have spoken exclusively to enewsgh.com about their stay in the reality television show.
The two, who left Biggie’s house last weekend, some few weeks into the grand finale, say the experience would be useful to their respective careers.
Samantha tells us the exposure she’s gained will boost her music career, insisting it was worth every effort she put in to get selected.
“It was a nice opportunity, which i am optimistic will be useful to my career. I believe this is a big stepping stone,” she told us via phone from South Africa.
The young singer, who said she wouldn’t mind re-applying (if the rules are amended) adds she achieved whatever goals she set for herself prior to entering the competition.
“I have always fancied living under one roof with other nationals. That it happened through my participation in the show, was a major achievement for me.”
Malawi’s Mr. 265, who was often criticised in-house for being a “mentalist”, says he wouldn’t play the game differently if he gets another shot at it.
He however adds that he has learnt to listen more, suggesting it was one of the things he didn’t do right.
265 looks forward to a Macky 2 win. “He has been consistent. He has been Macky 2 from day one; what you see is what you get.”
The television presenter adds that despite getting some public appeal across Africa, it was up to him to use that to his advantage.
In a related development, Ghana’s M’am Bea is still in the reckoning for a slot at the finals.
