Kenya: Where Did Prezzo Get It Wrong?
Angry Kenyan BBA fans vented their frustrations on twitter and facebook after rapper Prezzo was evicted from the House last night, in a tense finale that saw South African contestant Keagan announced as winner.
Hopes that had built to a crescendo when it was just Prezzo and Keagan left in the Upville house, but they were quickly dashed when the musician was asked to leave.
Prezzo got two country votes compared to Keagan’s whopping seven, which earned him a grand prize of about Sh25 million.
But as the anger subsided several good-luck wishes were relayed to the 4sho 4shizzy singer, congratulating him for almost winning the show, including from Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta’s Presidential campaign team.
Where did it go wrong?
Former BBA contestant Sheila Kwamboka thinks that Prezzo’s downfall may have been because of conflict in the house.
“He made too many enemies, and that’s what worked against him,” she told Capital Lifestyle.
“A lot of Africans genuinely liked him. He was cool, and an entertainer, but was disliked because of the fights he had in the house, especially with Barbz from South Africa.”
Another former Kenyan contestant Nick Wagondu meanwhile said that Prezzo played the game well and Kenyans should accept the vote.
“It must be hard for him to have come so close and then lose. There’s more to it than voting. Maybe we’ll get it next year,” he said.
Prezzo did not walk away from the competition empty-handed; he was given a big-boy scooter, a PVR decoder and the title of Ambassador for the ONE campaign against hunger.
