Zimbabwe: Ghanaian Evicted From Big Brother House

GHANAIAN radio disc jockey (DJ) Sammi Bampoe was on Sunday evicted from the Big Brother Africa house.

The 28-year-old Accra-based Bampoe was the fourth housemate asked to leave the house as the show's audiences in Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania and the 13th voting block (of non-participating African countries) formed a majority vote to evict him.

His departure from the show comes just days after he and fellow housemates created, produced and performed a part comedy, part drama, part musical play as one of their task activities. The production - complete with colorful costumes and several prop changes - was screened to audiences continent-wide who have been following the show on M-Net and DStv for the past 72 days.

Now outside of the familiar Big Brother Africa cameras and microphones, he begins his post-eviction tour today with an appearance at his first eviction party at the Kilimanjaro nightclub in Johannesburg where his fans will be entertained by famed South African DJ Glen Lewis, comedian David Kau and African music sensation Loyiso.

A few hours later, he will jet off home where a second eviction party has been organised for him.

In between his eviction party appearances, he will complete continental media interviews, a fashionable photographic shoot and host a live chat on the Big Brother Africa website.

Who will be up for nomination this week? That is something only Abby (South Africa), Bayo (Nigeria), Cherise (Zambia), Gaetano (Uganda), Mwisho (Tanzania), Stefan (Namibia), Tapuwa (Zimbabwe) and Warona (Botswana) can decide. The next nomination show will be on Sunday.
