After Malawi’s representative to the Big Brother Africa show Natasha Tonthola survived eviction for a fourth week running on Sunday night, the attention quickly shifted to her compatriot Fatima who was nominated on Monday.
But unlike Natasha, Fatima is more vulnerable as she is not as entertaining as her compatriot who has become the centre of attention in this year’s show which has been dubbed ‘The Chase’.
And during the eviction show hosted by MultiChoice Malawi at Steers Gardens in Blantyre on Sunday night, patrons were overheard discussing Fatima’s susceptibility.
“Once Fatima gets nominated, that will be the end for her as she will be evicted,” one patron noted.
However, Multichoice Malawi have called on Malawians to rally behind the former TV personality and show her the same support that has ensured Natasha’s phenomenal survival.
“She is Malawian and we have to support her just as the other countries have been supporting their representatives,” Multichoice marketing manager Chimwemwe Nyirenda said.
Fatima, who describes herself as “unique, daring, nurturing, fun and loud”, received the highest nominations this week – 5.
She was nominated by Sulu, Feza, Oneal, Angelo and Annabel, who all seem perplexed by her erratic mood swings.
“She’s been giving so many people the cold shoulder. I really don’t get her”, Sulu said, while Feza told Big Brother how Fatima is too tense and negative for her liking. Oneal was as candid as they come with his reasons as well.
“Fatima is a flip flopper,” he said, without missing a beat.
Fatima on the other hand threw her dagger at Feza, citing her as the strongest female in the game. “I think it’s time to get rid of all the females,” Fatima said.
This week’s Head of House, Elikem comes in a close second with three nominations, from Feza, Oneal and Annabel. Oneal pulled the trigger in Elikem’s direction because “He is easily manipulated and emotional”.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
