Tonight, Africa bids #Sierra Leoan’s #Bassey and Zimbabwe’s #Pokello farewell.undoubtedly the life of the show this season,#Bassey’s eviction left some of the housemates in shock. #Bimp who was Diamond’s house HOH for last week saved himself and placed #Bassey on the chopping block on Monday evening and this means #Bassey didn’t see this one coming.
The highlight of tonight’s eviction show was however the eviction of #Zimbabwe’s #Pokello. The socialite and fashionista was up for eviction for the fourth time and this time, her luck finally ran out. In the early days of the show,#Pokello was no doubt the darling of the viewers as they have saved her every other time she was up for possible eviction.Twice ,she emerged the contestant with the highest country votes,At one point,She bagged eight ”country votes” and that included the votes of #Nigeria and #Ghana.
Things took a drastic turn for her when she stupidly took a swipe at #Nigerians (The yeye girl no even dey fear) and other West African countries shortly after Melvin replaced her fellow countryman,#Hakeem and the handsome dude was subsequently evicted. She accused West African contestants of ganging up with their East African counterparts to flush out contestants from Southern Africa.She particularly singled out Nigeria and accused the organizers of the show of bias and manipulation of the votes to suit #Nigerians. She gave the example of 2010 when #Zimbabwean housemate, #Munya lost the battle for the top prize to #Uti.
Her comments provoked wild condemnation from west African viewers especially #Nigerians who has twice saved her.To make matters worse for her,Her boyfriend back home took to Facebook and twitter to blast Nigerians.In a Facebook post,Stunner as he is called wrote “Nigeria haisi Africa this weekend we prove that. Zimboz everywhere #SA #Bots #Namibia #Malawi and ROA? “Vote Pokello” to keep Zimbabwe on the map, #BBATHECHASE?????????
Her BBA official Facebook page has since been pleading with viewers to forgive her as she made the utterances under emotions following the eviction of her fellow country mate.“On behalf of #Pokello we would like to apologize to #Nigeria. #Pokello was emotional at the time and didn’t mean what she said. She was mourning about her countryman who left in an unexpected way,”.The post attracted close to a thousand comments but as it turns out,it was too late to correct the effect of her utterances.
For me, i will definitely miss #Bassey but for #Pokello’s exit,i am throwing a party.What’s your thoughts on tonight’s eviction?
