BBA The Chase: Salute Africa’s Top 5

Africa stand up and salute your Top 5. After 25 bade the Show goodbye, Beverly, Cleo, Dillish, Elikem and Melvin are the final 5 and it has been quite a journey for them.

We look at a few facts about their long journey in The Chase:

Beverly

Originally a Ruby, Beverly is probably the luckiest of the pack having gone through the entire Season without facing the dreaded Eviction dagger. It’s safe to say that the Nigerian lass literally walked her way to the Finale. On love, she had a bad experience very early in the game when Uganda’s LK4 tried two-timing her with South Africa’s Koketso. Seeing the Ugandan choose Koketso over her must have been a huge blow but she soldiered on, thanks to being Swapped to the Diamond House. No one wanted to believe that Betty’s Bolt had his eyes fixed on Beverly but that was her story and she stuck to it. It was only after Bolt moved to the Ruby House that he started confessing to a few transgressions. Beverly won HoH twice during the Season.

Cleo

Hakeem’s sweetheart or Mrs Mandaza as she became fondly known on the Big Brother Africa Twitter streets, Cleo surprised many when she pulled herself together and continued with The Chase even after her beau was booted out. Having survived four Evictions, the Zambian emcee has proved to be quite a strong contender in the game. Though this original Ruby couldn’t quite crack winning Head of House, she really pulled her weight and was always so close.

Dillish

The last confirmed Finalist, Diamond Dillish must still be pinching herself after surviving the last Eviction that saw South Africa’s Angelo and Ethiopian Bimp bite the dust. The princess, as Pebbles calls her, is another one that became a regular under the guillotine but Africa would not hear any of it and she was Saved on all occasions. Though she managed to go through the entire Season without falling for any of the guys, Dillish occasionally spoke about yearning for some good loving. Sadly, the Namibian princess failed dismally to make Head of House.

Elikem

That nigga Elikem’, as his beau the gorgeous Pokello refers to him, became the first confirmed Finalist of The Chase. The Ghanaian Chasemate fought quite a few battles to make it to the finish line in one piece. Having been the target of serious frenemy squabbles, it took Elikem a while to wake up and smell the coffee. The Taylor was quite popular with the ladies before settling with Zimbabwe’s Pokello and the ladies had to take a chill pill. A man of firsts, Elikem is also the only Chasemate to have had the nerve to Nominate his love-interest when he put up Pokello. He is also the first Ghanaian to make it to the Finale. This original Diamond became Head of House three times and survived five Evictions; twice by Africa and three times by the respective HoH.

Melvin

The only Chasemate to have tested fate and put his own head on the chopping block during his tenure as Head of House, a move that will go down as one of the boldest of the Season. Perhaps that’s the reason why his fellow Housemates could not Nominate him ever again, they were still picking up their jaws from the floor. The Nigerian hottie almost wears a permanent smile and never bothers anyone. That’s why it was quite a spectacle when Dillish rubbed him the wrong way this week, making him very angry. Though he only faced Eviction once, by his own doing anyway, Melvin won Head of House three times during his days as a Diamond. This actually made it hard to recall that Melvin is actually an original Ruby.

Though everyone is now a Ruby, fact remains that we have three original Rubies and two original Diamonds in the Top 5. Ghana, Namibia, Nigeria and Zambia are represented in the Finale.

How happy are you about the Top 5 Africa?

Afrigo headlines Fusion auto spa’s Carnival on day-one, Femeika set for day-2

Published

By Staff Writer

One can rightfully refer to Afrigo band as music’s equivalent of the pyramids; the band has been around for about forever, yet remains an unshakable towering presence within the industry and is such an attraction appealing to all generations.

All this and more was on display yesterday night when the band headlined Fusion Auto Spa’s first of the three-day Fused Eco Fest Carnival, a celebration of the joint’s 10 years since it opened doors to Ugandans.

With all the legends in the house such as Moses Matovu, Joanita Kawalya, Racheal Magoola, Herman Ssewanyana on the percussion among others, the band took revelers through the hits that have come to define the music industry for decades. Only those rhythmically challenged stayed on their seats.

In an industry where as soon as a new bar opens doors the old one is relegated to the history books, Fusion auto spa has strongly maintained relevance attracting a wide range of patrons, which in perspective warranted such a celebration not for one day but three, being opened by the best band in Uganda, Afrigo.

Day two is an all-day affair with lots of activities during the day selections by resident deejays, swimming, bouncing castles, Amazon bonfire etc climaxing into the night with a host of renowned comedians, and musicians headlined by Fik Femeica.
