Malawi's finalist , Wati says he tried his best to make history for his country but admitted the game was tough. The calm and cool Wati, speaking with HVP during the after-party which followed the BBA grand finale, said Malawians should not despair as in a game there is only one winner.

"I tried to be as real as possible and showed fellow housemates who Wati really was. I had a chance of winning but there had to be only one winner and that is Keagan and I am satisfied with the result. Keagan and I have been friends since we entered the house and so I am happy for him," said the Malawian representative, who was the first of the six finalists to be evicted.

Wati said that living in the house was not easy as it was so stressful. He added that if he knew the criteria, he could have devised a strategy. "It's not easy as people see it on TV, the fact that I did not win the money does not mean that I am a loser. Spending 91 days is not a joke and I am also a winner," he said.

He said he is not rushing into coming up with projects. "I will not stress myself, at the moment I want to have fun and try to link up with my friends and then next year that is when I can come up with some projects. I am looking at working on projects of design and architecture," said Wati, who only got a single vote from Malawi.

He ruled out talk that his alcohol escapades in the house lowered his votes. "In the house, your stress levels rise and while other people went on to do weird things, to me I made a choice of drinking and that gave me a chance to express myself," said Wati, who holds an advanced diploma in architecture.
