Zimbabwe’s representative to the reality television show, Big Brother All Stars, Munyaradzi Chidzonga, was last week presented with a compensatory $300 000 by President Mugabe after missing out on the BBA grand prize of $200 000 in controversial circumstances.
NewsDay writers, Phillip Chidavaenzi and Tinashe Sibanda had an afternoon out with the BBA star, who spoke about his experiences in the BBA house and life in general.
Q: Can you briefly describe your experience in the Big Brother house?
A: I think when I met the President, he gave the precise description.
He said it’s something that’s “very gruelling psychologically”.
And that’s true because it’s something that plays on your mind, because everyday you’ll be seeing the same things (in the BBA House).
The President likened it to a prison, but the funny thing is that you have to be the longest survivor.
It’s a test of endurance, really.
Q: Are there any new things you learnt about yourself while in the house?
