BIG BROTHER AFRICA SEASON 8: The Chase-Who Will Africa Choose To Join Beverly, Melvin, Elikem & Cleo In The Finale?

Big Brother Africa Season 8-The Chase1

With the final round of nominations on Big Brother: The Chase done and dusted on Monday, it’s up to Africa to decide who of Angelo, Bimp and Dillish will be joining Melvin, Beverly, Elikem and Cleo in the glittering finale on 25 August.

Head of House Elikem picked up the most nominations (5), followed by Bimp with 4, Dillish with 2 and Cleo, Beverly and Angelo with 1 apiece – with Melvin not picking up a solitary nod. Elikem used his decisive ‘save & replace’ decision to send himself into the finale next Sunday, putting Angelo up for eviction in his place.

His decision ensured that Beverly, Melvin and Cleo are guaranteed a spot in the finale beside him. Beverly has gone through the entire show without facing eviction, while she and Melvin are also the only duo from the same country, left in The Chase.

Beverly kicked off nominations on Monday morning, naming Dillish and Cleo as her nomination choices, the latter because she sees her as competition.  Cleo returned the favour by nominating the Nigerian because she wanted to see how she’d handle potential nomination stress. Her second nomination went to Elikem because of his HoH status.

Dillish nominated Elikem for the same reason, before choosing Bimp because she sees him as competition. Bimp clearly felt the same way, because he nominated the Namibian for the same reason. His second nomination went to Elikem, not because he was Head of House, but because they don’t get along.

Elikem clearly feels the same way as he set his sights on the Ethiopian. He named Angelo as his second nominee – with the South African promptly returning the favour. Angelo’s second nomination went to Bimp.

Melvin nominated Bimp, saying “everyone is close to me. If I choose one person for possible eviction, It would have to be Bimp”. His second nominee was Elikem, because he could save himself.

BIG BROTHER AFRICA SEASON 8-The Chase Update-Elikem Raises the Love Bar


After playing between Pokello and Fatima for weeks indecisively, Elikem seems to have had his love path chosen by providence since Fatima was eliminated.

The stage has been automatically set for himself and Pokello to develop their affection and they are not slacking at all!

Elikem seems to know exactly how to woo a good woman, no indecent scandalous acts, just straight out lovey dovey and sweet nothings. Isn’t that what we all want in a man? Sensitivity and cute moves.

The romance between Pokello and homeboy Elikem has been on  and off for awhile but the genuine searing attraction between them can never be ignored. Like moth to a flame, through fights, breakups and quarrels, somehow they and those around them have never doubted this particular two and they always end up back in each other’s arms.

BIG BROTHER AFRICA SEASON 8: The Chase-Angola Out Of The Chase!

E.L Performs at Eviction Show

Angolan duo Biguesas and Neyll were evicted from Big Brother: The Chase this week (Sunday 16 June) after receiving the fewest viewer votes from the continent.

The evictions follow the Heads of House having to reveal their ‘save & replace’ decisions. Diamond Head of House Melvin revealed he had saved Bolt and replaced him with Annabel. Ruby Head of House Selly found it easier to reveal her decision this week, telling the housemates that she’d saved Oneal and replaced him with Neyll. Oneal’s eyes couldn’t have been wider when he heard the news!

After Monday’s nominations, Diamonds Annabel (Kenya) & Biguesas (Angola) and Ruby housemates Pokello (Zimbabwe), Neyll (Angola) & Natasha (Malawi) were left fighting it out for Africa’s votes this week. After the SizweNtsalubaGobodo auditor had delivered the verified voting results, IK got down to business. The first name he mentioned was Pokello’s – but only to tell her she was safe. Biguesas wasn’t so lucky and had to say his goodbyes. Neyll was the next housemate to be evicted, leaving tears in his wake as his housemates consoled each other.

Out on stage, Biguesas told IK that switching between houses had made it difficult for him to open up, leading to the perception that he was quiet. He had no regrets about quitting his job to enter Big Brother: The Chase and that he’d had no idea that Natasha had wanted to spend time with him in the Rendezvous Room so badly. Neyll said he’d had fun with Bolt and Beverley as he ping-ponged between the houses and that his beef with Oneal was down to the fact that the Botswana housemate had been “bossy”.

Ghanaian Channel O African Music Video Award-nominated star EL performed at the show in super-smooth fashion with his hit ‘Hallelujah’. He returned later to set the stage alight with ‘Kaalu’ after Biguesas and Neyll had been evicted.

BIG BROTHER AFRICA SEASON 8: The Chase-Lovebirds Sent Packing

Koketso and LK4

Love conquers all – except a viewer vote – as lovebirds Koketso and LK4 discovered when they were evicted from Big Brother: The Chase on Sunday night.

Following Monday’s nominations, Diamonds Feza, Hakeem & Dillish found themselves up for eviction alongside Rubies, Koketso & LK4. After the SizweNtsalubaGobodo auditor had delivered the verified voting results on Sunday night’s show, LK4 was the first to leave – but didn’t have to wait too long to be reunited with Koketso, as she was evicted next.

Just before the evictions happened, the Heads of House had to reveal their ‘save & replace’ decisions. Diamond Head of House Betty revealed she had saved Bolt because he’s fun to be around and replaced him with Feza. Emotional Ruby Head of House Selly revealed that she had saved Biguesas and replaced him with Koketso.

LK4 burst onto the stage, shortly after his eviction announcement and told IK that his strategy had evolved into something else as his relationship with Koketso blossomed. Once Koketso joined him, she was coy on the future of their relationship outside the house, adopting a ‘wait and see’ attitude.

Big Brother then decided to play a trick on the housemates this week, making them believe there was a third house in play – the Emerald house. It’s just part of the game, to keep them guessing!

Entertainment for the evening included two performances by Kenya’s own Victoria Kimani singing her massive hit ‘Mtoto’ and later, ‘Oya’.
