Nigerian musician and actor, Uti Nwachukwu, yesterday won the reality TV senatation, Big Brother Africa – the All stars edition.
Beating his Zimbabwean contemporary, Munya, to win the coveted price, Uti jumped up and danced proudly singing the Nigerian national anthem after he was announced the winner.
It was a tight race as Uti and Munya were the final housemates. According to host IK, this was the closest ever finale with the winner securing the votes from 8 countries and the runner up from 7.
Uti initially participated in the 3rd season of Big Brother Africa and was one of the housemates from previous seasons chosen to enter the Big Brother All Stars house. The final five housemates were
Sheila (Kenyan), Mwisho (Tanzanian), Lerato (South African), Munya (Zimbabwean) and Uti.
It was a sweet victory for Uti, who survived a number of eviction nomination during the 91-day spell in the Big Brother house and was never sent to the barn. Uti lost his father while he was in the house.
The finale featured performances from MI, Jesse Jagz, 2Face, and Kenya’s Wyre.
