During an exclusive interview with Pulse on Monday, evicted Big Brother Africa StarGame (BBA) lovebirds Malonza and Junia confessed how their romantic spell destroyed their focus on the Sh16 million winner’s cash prize and led to their eviction.
That Sunday evening, love-struck Junia, the Namibian BBA contestant, watched in disbelief as her Kenyan boyfriend was tossed out of the BBA House. Uncontrollably, she burst into tears.
As if to grant her wish in a twisted Romeo and Juliet fashion, in another minute, the lovebirds were reunited, only this time they were outside the House, as Junia too, got ‘banished’.
The two have been the House’s kissing couple since the first moment they set their eyes on each other.
“At least I am leaving with him,” she whispered as she sighed with relief.
She waved Africa bye, and out she went.
Away from the cameras and the eyes of millions of BBA viewers from all over Africa, their love fate was sealed to their privacy.
“I will be coming to Kenya, sooner or later. We will keep it going. The door is open for him to come to Namibia,” she added, her tone evoking their fond romantic scenes that Africa had watched them flaunt over their two months’ BBA stay — earning themselves the tag name ‘The StarGame couple’.
Between animated poses, witty verbal exchanges and hearty laughs, the two engaged Pulse in a candid talk as they receded into the truth: Their love affair had distracted their focus on the game and resulted in their eviction. This was at a time when the Kenyan USIU student was largely embraced positively by Africa.
