Big Brother Amplified season six Nigerian housemate Karen Igho, who was one of two winners of this year’s edition of the reality show, said she had no beef with Zimbabwean housemate, Vimbai Mutinhiri.
Karen said Vimbai never took time to understand her. She added that the reason why she always questioned Vimbai about her American accent was because she claimed she had never visited America.
“Vimbai used to claim she was born and bred in Zimbabwe so I used to wonder how she had an American accent if she had never been there. When she explained to me I thought we were buddies, but no, she never understood me,” said Karen.
Karen who walked away $200 000 richer on Sunday said she was still in shock and overwhelmed.
“When I was in the house, I wasn’t quite sure if Africa loved me. I appreciate their love for me and I promise not to disappoint them,” she said.
She added that since the money had just landed on her lap, she had not yet made proper arrangements as to how she would use it.
She highlighted though she was going to give back to Africa by working hand-in-hand with HIV awareness organisations.
“My father died of Aids, so I am going to use what I have now to educate people about the virus.
“I will embark on HIV-related projects around Africa with assistance from my fellow housemates,” she said.
Asked about Luclay’s loss, Karen said Africa had made a decision and no one else had the powers to go against that. She further urged housemates who had not won not to lose hope.
Meanwhile, Vimbai and Wendall Parson are expected back home today and a welcome party has been arranged for them at Fusion Café on Saturday.
