Evicted Big Brother Stargame representative, Alinafe ‘Nafe’ Kulemeka, 22, arrived back in Malawi, Lilongwe, on Thursday, banking his winning card on cousin, Watipaso ‘Wati’ Kulemeka still in the House. Multichoice Malawi has organised a welcoming party for him Saturday night at Mzasi.
Nafe, who briefly told journalists, relatives and fans that his stay in the House was challenging, exciting, a new experience and learning opportunity, said he foresaw Wati winning the US$300,000 at the end of the 90 days reality show, watched by millions of Africans.
He also said he was looking forward to meeting his fans on Saturday at the party which kicks on at 8pm.
“I can say my life in the House was the biggest and craziest house party ever,” he responded to a journalist at a press conference held at the Crossroads Hotel in the capital Lilongwe.
He arrived aboard South Africa Airways flight in the afternoon around 1300hrs.
Multi-choice Malawi officer, Tatiana Katenga-Kaunda told the briefing the company alongside Big Brother had some great opportunities in store for Nafe, and all other housemates, which she
would not reveal at the moment.
“We are confident now that since Nafe has been in the House and is now a celebrity, we shall work on a number of befitting issues that he can be engaged in. This we can not disclose now,” she said.
Nafe also said he did not need to find a girlfriend in the House because he already have one. Mona, his lovebird, was one of the thousands of Malawians that received him from the airport after being
evicted last week Sunday the 1st July.
“I can say being in the House posed some challenges on our relationship, but am glad that I have always had trust in her and she in me and that our relationship is stronger now,” he said. Adding, he
was positive that he was now a celebrity and had been told he would come out of the House a different person.
“Yes, we were forewarned of this. I was, well, not so sure about this, but now with such a glamorous awesome reception from the airport to here, I can tell am different and a true celebrity. I know people will come to me and say hi and have to do a lot of smiling. I also know that some will say negative things,” he said, “but I can handle that. I will handle that!”
His parents Peter and Kwacha plus sister Ayanja were joined by his cousins and well-wishers on arrival.
Nafe, who enjoyed and danced to some traditional dances including Ingoma at the airport and the hotel, complete with a welcoming song by Cherub Private Schools students, where he is assistant administrator, was driven in a convoy made up of a convertible Audi, a Big Boy motorcycle, and other vehicles led by a police siren blasting vehicle.
He was driven through the New Parliament House and the Game Stores – Shoprite shopping area before coming to Crossroads Hotel. Nafe said Malonza and Keagan posed a threat to Wati and Malawi’s chances of winning the big prize.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
