ZIMBABWEAN Big Brother Africa heart-throb Munyaradzi Hakeem Mandaza has been unveiling his strategy to avoid eviction next Sunday: show some muscle.
The 22-year-old model and personal trainer stripped down to a pair of crotch-hugging boxers as he engaged in a late-night workout in the House on Monday night.
Hakeem is nominated for Sunday’s double eviction with South African housemate Koketso, Tanzania’s Feza, Uganda’s LK4 and Namibian beauty, Dillish.
But the Zimbabwean, who went into the show to seek “bigger opportunities”, is showing he is not ready to go home without a sweat with a deliberate show for his admiring female fans.
Last Saturday, Hakeem had a steamy kiss with Namibian psychology student Dillish, sparking talk of a potential romance – but the pair appear to have since backed off.
Hakeem has also been singing about a housemate, believed to be Zambia’s Cleo, who is making it hard for him to “keep faithful”.
Hakeem and socialite Pokello Nare are Zimbabwe’s representatives in this year’s Big Brother Africa which has a US$300,000 cash prize for the winner.
Pokello, who shot to infamy when a two-minute video of her romping with her singer boyfriend Stunner, real name Desmond Chideme, was leaked online took up Zimbabwe’s celebrity slot which was filled by the singer Roki Josphats in last year’s show.
