Keagan from South Africa won the Big Brother StarGame 2012. He was voted by Africa as the ultimate winner of Big Brother StarGame with Prezzo from Kenya as the runners up. Most Kenyans had expected the prize was at last coming to Nairobi but NO, they have to wait longer.
The brown skin, tall and bearded 2012 housemate was declared winner amid celebrations by South Africans. This is the time Kenyans and Prezzo should feel robbed. Keagan is an inferior winner as compared to the previous winners of Big Brother Africa. Prezzo would have been a better winner or even Kora award winner, Lady May. The surprise winner, Keagan, at this moment is now $300,000 richer.
He paraded the cash he does not deserve in the last event of Big Brother StarGame boasting to the world that he was going straight into business. The prize of $300,000 does not come with entrepreneurial knowledge and might seem murky waters to the chap who appear to be leading a reckless life as depicted in Big Brother StarGame. Prezzo can go back to Kenya with a smile on his face; Kenyans are satisfied with his performance. Elections would be held in early next year and can exercise his right of being called Mr. President. Kenyans would dearly vote him in as the next president of Kenya if he chooses to vie for the presidency.
Big Brother StarGame organization and voting pattern favors Nigerians and South Africans. It’s not because Nigerians and South Africans are genetically predisposed to entertain in the Big Brother house. Big Brother Africa competitions are ONLY held either in Nigeria or South Africa, reason?
They are chosen because of population and economic factors. Big Brother StarGame is a business venture not a just any other competition, and therefore the interests of major stakeholders who happens not to be followers of StarGame have to be met. Africans who are disillusioned by the events of Big Brother should know that it’s more than voting the best housemate but also tapping more followers of the Game that would enable huge cash flows in the investment .
Big Brother has never had plans to organize this event in Nairobi and yet Kenya is one of the largest economies in Africa coming just behind the Big Brother favorites; South Africa and Nigeria. Though it’s concurred there is a foul play in this Game, more should be done to promote fairness, equality and non-discrimination of other countries.
Congrats Keagan, it’s the hope of Africans that you don’t party too much with the money but invest it wisely. Big Brother StarGame 2012 is over. Have a good time.
