Come this Sunday, 17 October, the fifth season of the popular Pan African reality television series, Big Brother All Stars will produce a new winner as the show comes to an end.
By Sunday, it would have been 90 entertaining days for the BBA followers across the continent, as they watched Big Brother make twists and turns to make this yearâ€™s edition the best BBA show ever.
The show kicked off with a big bang on Sunday, 18 July with 14 contestants from 14 different countries in the continentÂ with Nigeriaâ€™s IK Osakioduwa as the host for the second time running.
According to voting polls on the official website of BBA, Nigeria-born Uti Nwachukwu seems to be the favourite of the remaining five contenders in the Johannesburg, South Africa-based house. In the polls, Uti leads with 57.3 percent votes.
Heâ€™s trailed by Zimbabweâ€™s Munya who grossed 24.7percent. The others are Mwisho with 9.4percent, Sheila representing Kenya has 6.9percent and South Africaâ€™s Lerato at the rear with 1.7 percent. The total votes are 37843.
If Uti finally grosses the highest, he will join fellow compatriot, Kevin Pam Chuwang who won the BB Revolution last year. He will walk home with the princely sum of $200,000 as winning cash prize.
In less than 48 hours, the new Big Brother star will emerge at the grand finale live on Mnet.
