Namibia: Tamara and Nafe Tell It Like It Is

Recently evicted Big Brother Stargame evictees, Tamara and Nafe, don't hold anything back in their interview with The Namibian.

As expected from newly evicted housemates, both are very upbeat about their future prospects and have various projects lined up for their respective futures.

Staying true to the way we got to know her, Tamara proves that her straight-talking no-nonsense approach to life is no act, while Nafe seems to have come alive since leaving the house where he came across as a somehow boring, wallflower-ish type character. Was this a strategy to stay under the radar?

Read what the newly evicted pair had to say about their lessons learned, best experiences and future plans.


How do you feel about having been evicted from the Big Brother Stargame House?

I feel good, very good actually. The reception I've been getting is quite good and I'm enjoying every minute of it.

Do you see your music career taking off after your stint on the reality show?

I see my music career going only higher and higher, as the whole of Africa knows me now. I have plans for recording and doing collaborations with artists outside Zambia, artists like DJ Cleo from South Africa and 2Face and Dbanj, who are both Nigerians.

In the last few weeks of your stay in the house you were involved in quite a number of heated arguments with your sister Talia. What was the issue between the two of you?

I'm going to be very honest with you here, she (Talia) was just playing the victim. I think she was simply looking for favour from African voters and in the end, she probably got what she wanted.

Do you think you left the house at the right time, especially since you hadn't totally ironed out your issues with Talia?

It should have been the right time, everything that happened was for a reason.

What lessons have you learned from your stay in the house?

There were a lot of personalities, which we had to get used to. I learned to put up with a lot of crap from everybody, especially from my sister.


Why did you enter the house?

The money man, the money. Isn't that what most of us went there for?

What lessons did you learn in the Big Brother house?

Tolerance. The house was full of people with different personalities and egos with some people being more extreme than others. Putting up with that was a challenge everyday.

What are your future plans?

I want to go into the entertainment industry. I did music already but now I want to broaden that by trying out modelling and acting as well.

Who do you think will win the money?

Apart from Wati, Keagan is likely to win and the Nigerian girl too (Goldie).

A lot of people found you very quiet and reserved. Is that your true character or was it part of your strategy to win the game?

That's the way I am, I don't act up. I'm very laid back and always try to avoid trouble unless someone is really trying to push me into a corner, then I'll not just sit back and take that.

Why do you think you where eventually evicted from the house?

Africa was voting for wild and entertaining people, maybe I was too laid back for them.
