Barnmates on life after BBA


Two Big Brother Africa All Stars barnmates, Code Sangala (Malawi) and Meryl Shikwambane (Namibia), have started making considerations for life after two months in the BBA house.

In exclusive interviews with NewsDay, the barnmates spoke of their experiences in the house.

Code said it was different being in the outside world again, but he would have wanted to go all the way and win the top prize.

On the changes he underwent in the house, he said: “In this season, I was reserved as compared to the first season where I was single with no commitments.”

The musician said he was going to launch his third album in Zambia and would consider visiting Zimbabwe.

He said before entering the house, he made business considerations and looked at the possible gains and was also driven by his passion for acting.

He however added that he would not give Big Brother Africa another chance. He has had enough.

Code acknowledged that being in the house made him discover his strengths and learn how to live with women, as he “lived with six different crazy women in the barn”.

Code also tipped Zimbabwe’s housemate, Munya, to win the top prize.

Meanwhile, Meryl regretted leaving the house early although she was glad to be reunited with her family.

“I have mixed feelings about being evicted as I feel I left a bit early before winning the money. I am glad to see everyone though as it had been long,” said Meryl.

After leaving the house, she appreciated more her engagement to Tanzania’s Mwisho Mwampamba.

“I have no regrets of getting engaged to Mwisho in the house. I stand by our engagement and I’m proud of myself,” said Meryl.

She added that they had not yet made a decision as to where they were going to live — since they were from different countries — but they would do so once Mwisho left the house.

She said she did not like Munya’s actions when he called her a slut, adding that she could not guess who was likely to take the $200 000 home.
