AFTER expressing her desire to be the first woman to win the Big Brother grand prize since Zambia’s Cherise did so seven seasons ago, Dillish has done it for all of Africa’s women!
The gorgeous Namibian started her Chase race as the proverbial underdog and was labelled everything from lazy to a pampered princess.
As the Chase rolled on, however, Dillish quickly emerged as a very strong contender for the title and won her fellow Housemates and Africa over with her quirky, accented alter ego, aptly titled Princess Dillish.
The Namibian made sure to stay away from trouble and coasted through the Chase by taking her place behind the scenes.
While her fellow Housemates got themselves into hot water, fighting and gossiping their way to what they hoped was the top of the mountain, Dillish remained grounded and maintained cordial relations with her fellow Housemates.
The only time the Namibian got herself in a spot of trouble was when she and her good friend, Nigeria’s Melvin, had a disagreement after she told her fellow Housemates about a relationship he was involved in, which was less than stellar.
Dillish and Cleo proved to all and sundry that women are indeed a force of nature. The two hotties pipped their male counterparts Elikem and Melvin to the Top 2.
Before the big news was delivered, Pebbles the fish surprised all and sundry with one last speech.
“On behalf of myself and the other fish, I would like to congratulate you on your amazing feat. You are the ‘specialest’ ladies in Africa,” Pebbles said.
As soon as the Namibian was announced the winner of the Chase, she broke down in a flood of tears at the realisation that she now had a cool $300 000 sitting in her bank account.
Yes Africa, she came, she saw and she conquered.
In heels even!
Meanwhile, the finale stage was chockful of moments that would melt the coldest of hearts.
As soon as Beverly’s heels touched the live eviction stage, her man Angelo stood waiting, arms wide open.
When the Nigerian turned around to see what the commotion behind her was about, she caught a glimpse of her dreadlocked man and ran straight into his arms.
Angelo and Beverly were one of the couples who made this season memorable.
Who can forget their saucy shenanigans in the bedroom after every Channel O party?
Another couple that reunited on the Live Eviction stage was “Polikem”.
When Elikem made his way to the stage after being evicted from the House, pretty Pokello was waiting.
The two lovers ran into each other’s arms and shared a passionate clinch that definitely sent temperatures soaring.
Once they had reluctantly pried their lips apart, Pokello showed off her outfit, which was pimped out with a tape measure, a style made famous by her man Elikem, who is a tailor.
“I’m down for you, baby,” she said, as Elikem beamed proudly.
Cleo and her man Hakeem also got their moment on stage after having not seen each other since Hakeem was evicted.
The Zambian rapper, who got the second highest number of votes after Chase champion Dillish, found comfort in her man’s arms, who held on to her and wouldn’t let go.
Looks like our Chasemates have found true love! It’s safe to say Babylon was very busy that night.
