Big Brother: Makosi defended
Writing here this week, New Zimbabwe.com editor Mduduzi Mathuthu described Makosi Musambasi as behaving like an "Amazon squirrel" and and being a "self-obsessed, pathetic and sanctimonious squit" on the British reality TV show Big Brother. Big Brother fans have been reacting
Editor - I’m contacting you from a popular website for the UK television series Big Brother. I think you should be ashamed of the slating that you have given housemate Makosi Musambasi in the Sunday edition of your newspaper that I have read online.
You may or may not have completely realised the rules of the task – it is up to Makosi to generate the most nominations against her, in order for her to survive in the Big Brother house. It is a personal challenge that has been set to her, after she became the unlucky 1st housemate to go to the Diary Room in the house, through no fault of her own.
I think you should
think very carefully before printing such a harsh article next time,
you are the ones who are putting Zimbabwe to shame, not Makosi.
Editor - These contests
have certain rules that one has to follow. Big Brother is not won by
a goody goody but by the one who "can survive". Are you now
the National Enquirer with all the unneccesary celeb gossip or what?
Do u want oppression or what? I dare you to publish this letter....bet
Editor - How dare
you write such a biased and un-informed article about Makosi! I'm a
Brit who's really offended by your article. Had you been a journalist
in the UK you would have been fired and sued for libel. Makosi has done
Editor - I just
want to complain about the article written about Makosi Musambasi who
is currently staring in 'a very good' television show over in UK. I
think who ever wrote such bad press against Makosi is shallow, they
do not even know the girl or the show but yet they are making judgement
on her and Big Brother, this news hasn't gone down well over here and
papers have already started slating this website. I strongly oppose
what has been said about Makosi and feel that the website is rubbish
and needs more facts before slating a great programme and a fantastic
person, you may turn your back on people from your country but we will
support her here.
Editor - You Zimbabweans
should be so proud of Makosi. The British Public LOVE HER! Also, we
are all Big Brother fans and you should get your facts straight before
running the programme down.
Editor - The report on your website has come to the attention of some of the UK Big Brother fans. I thought you should see the response (CLICK HERE).
Big Brother is to be taken lightly, it's an entertainment show and so far Makosi is playing Big Brother's game very well. This is our sixth series and Big Brother is a bully but all the Housemates knew that on applying for the show. She has been chosen at random to be the unluckiest contestant ever to be in Big Brother. She has to make her Housemates nominate her if she is to spared from the public vote this week and thus keep her place in the house. It is therefore Big Brother's fault that she is acting in such a way. It's a bit harsh to jump on her like that only 3 Days into the show when she has not yet been able to fully be herself due to her ulucky situation. Give her a break, I'd say she's doing Zimbabwe proud!
deserve to be a national hate figure you'd like her to be.
Editor - Let her do what she wants to do. She is brave enough to go forth and make her way into Big Brother. Makaitwa sei maZimba? Why can't you support her at least. I am disgusted with your attitude. Your job is to criticise your own people!
Get real and unite!
Editor - That's a good article, thanks for looking out. I wasn't really surprised by the father's comment, there appears to be something amiss. Like father like daughter, and no wonder she turned out the way she is.
Cheers BOSS, good
Editor - What do
you mean when you say "our shame"?. Were you born in the tenth
century. Come on man don't be like Mugabe, follow what's going on at
the right time and the right place. If you are not in Zim, aren't you
doing lots of oral sex? Yes you do because of the place you are in.
Leave that sister alone. She is the one that makes me to watch that
show. There aint no shame with that. Apart from being a show, she is
looking for money to survive.
Editor - I was concerned
to read the language you used to describe the Zimbabwean nurse on a
UK big brother programme. I have not seen the
Editor - Firstly, it seems that you are the stupid one, since Makosi did not fail to follow a simple instruction to end up being nominated.
You are too opinionated, you generalised your own race, like you probably generalise everything. It makes your opinions easy to discard. Reading this article made me cringe.
I like Makosi, but
I’m not e-mailing you to defend her. I just want to point out
your clear as day flaws.
Editor - Thaught
that your article was slightly dillusional. How you can criticise
Editor - I read
the article on Makosi with utter disgust at the lack of knowledge and
ill-informed writer. Please unless you have facts then don't try and
make an argument.
