Big Brother Africa All-Stars housemate Munyaradzi Chidzonga got the “wet treatment” at the weekend after an angry female fan poured some wine on him as she felt he was not giving her enough attention at Chapter 1, an open-air joint in Mutare.
Munya was on the third leg of the promotion of his new movie, Lobola, which will be launched on November 25 in Harare.
Overwhelmed by the number of fans clamouring for his attention, the “Diamond Boy” courted the ire of the female fan who had started off by poking him with the bottle before emptying its contents on him, messing his designer T-shirt in the process.
This was after the woman’s expression of her affection for Munya was rebuffed.
NewsDay has it on good authority that the woman, whose name could not be established, was a “hot shot” in Mutare and was known for getting her way.
The turn of events, however, did not go down well with one of Munya’s bodyguards who slapped her before hauling her out of the VIP lounge.
Some fans resorted to using violence as they shattered windows of the VIP lounge, while others tried to break down the door, just to get closer to their hero.
Unlike the other parties hosted earlier in honour of the Big Brother hero, the Mutare one was different as it had fans that were very hungry for him, going to extremes just to get his attention.
This prompted Munya’s bodyguards to block the fans’ access to him.
Due to the excessive enthusiasm, Munya’s bouncers would not allow his fans to see him till they calmed down and they resorted to using violence.
The crowd thronged the VIP lounge, demanding that Munya leave the lounge to meet with them.
The crowd had thronged the vicinity of Chapter 1 as early as 6pm, four hours before Munya’s arrival.
