Thrills of True Love

The heave of excitement and the ease of elegance made a festival of the wedding ceremony between Olujimi Olufemi Aina and Ibijola Olatunde Bali left Lagos with posh memories of pleasure,poise and panache. The resurgence of festal songs and the recurrence of frenzy dances lifted the venues to a place of high-spirited merriment.

THE CHASE HEAT UP

It’s just day 4 of Big Brother Africa (the Chase) and housemates are still getting to know each other but that didn’t stop Ethiopia’s Betty and Sierra Leone’s super sharp guy, Bolt from sharing an intimate moment  some nights back.
While their fellow #BBAChase housemates were sleeping,the couple kissed passionately and they would have taken it a step further but it seem Bolt came to the party unprepared.
In what seems to be frantic search for condoms, Bolt ransacked his pocket but the search was futile (Maybe, he’s not so sharp after all).
The duo gave up on the kiss and went to the kitchen to drink some water instead. As the duo haven’t said much about dating each other, time will tell if this was just a ”once off” incident or there will be similar ”recurring” incidents.
We are pretty sure there’ll be more fun and excitement to follow in this 2013 edition of Big Brother Africa – The Chase.

STILL ON THE CHASE

So last evening, Diamond Housemates had their diary sessions and while most of them seem to be homesick already, one half of the Kenyan representative to The Chase, Annabel Mbaru remained upbeat about being in the house and went on to reveal what's in her heart and mind.
She's excited about being in the house, she wasn't happy on Sunday because her suitcase was held at airport which made her very emotional. Her first impression of the house was lovely, she likes the fact that she has a fellow Kenyan, it makes her feel at home.
She's getting along with everyone, but with Huddah more, although she doesn't feel she's connected with Fatima, she says Fatima is a bit reserved. She feels they don't connect personality wise because she's an extrovert and Fatima is and introvert, she says Fatima is a hard nut to crack. When asked to discibe her personality, she says she's happy, she's an extrovert and can't wait for Friday for alcohol to come, she's mellow when she's sober but when alcohol comes her personality comes out.


Annabel during her Diary session
She feels people are trying to impress others and are not being real. She says she thought her personality was out there, but now that she's here she realises others are like that as well, she thought she was gonna stand out.

She ends her session by saying Africa should expect a lot of fun from her, many sleepless nights and romance, passion. She says she could start a romance with Angelo or Bolt. She says even though Angelo looks like a player there's a bit of a sensitive side to him. And Bolt because he's West Africa

THE CHASE IS ON


Big Brother Africa is the name, The Chase is the game. After an electrifying start to the evening, 28 of Africa’s sexiest singletons descended onto the Big Brother Live Show stage before making their way into the Rubies and Diamonds Houses.
As is custom to the Big Brother Africa show, Season 8 will be full of surprises. The first twist of the evening was for the 14 female Housemates. The ladies were given a chance to determine which of the two Houses they would be moving into according to the maleHousemate that they pick. But the catch was that they could not see the guys’ faces they had to pick the smile that they like the most out of the smiles of the 14 male Housemates that were displayed on screen on stage.
After each female Housemate had picked the smile that she was most drawn to, the guy who the smile belongs to came out onto the stage carrying a yellow or red cloth that signified whether they would be headed to Rubies or Diamonds House. Although the Housemates walked into the Houses as pairs they will be competing as individuals and will spend the 91 days vying for each other’s affections for the USD 300 000 prize.
Here is how the Housemates have been divided:
Rubies:
Pokello, Zambia
LK4, Uganda
Selly, Ghana
Bassey, Sierra Leone
Beverly, Nigeria
Sulu, Zambia
Cleo, Zambia
Oneal, Botswana

Huddah, Kenya
Bimp, Ethiopia
Motamma, Botswana
Neyll, Angola
Feza, Tanzania

Now that the Housemates have been divided let The Chase begin.

FASHION OPENING


Fashion in the House of BB Africa 2013If the outfits worn by the Housemates at the grand opening are anything to go by, then Africa is in store for a colourful season of Big Brother The Chase.
It was as if a rainbow had exploded inside of the Houses as the Housemates entered their new homes, where they will be spending the next 91 days. The Chasers were dressed in big, bright and beautiful creations.
Of all of the Housemates, Tanzania’s Feza was the hardest to miss in her head to toe pink outfit. She even had a pink hairdo to match her ensemble. Beverly from Nigeria was like a ray of sunshine in her figure hugging yellow dress.

BEVERLY, Model, 21, Nigeria
Her bio according to BBA The Chase’s website reads: Beverly is a model from Lagos. She describes herself as “smart, sexy, humble, loyal and crazy”. One of her favourite qualities is her sense of humour. In other people, she values “consistency, cleanliness, truth and humility” and dislikes unkept promises, lies and pretence.
Beverley says that viewers can expect “a total packaged African young diva to command the right qualities and characteristics of a blunt, sexy go-getter”. She doesn’t really have any role models, choosing rather to take unique attributes from different people. Asked who has influenced her life most, Beverley says “who I want to influence me all depends on the situation at hand”.
Her favourite musicians include John Legend, Kelly Rowland, Phenom and Rihanna.
MELVIN, Model and actor , 27, Nigeria

His friends and family inspired him to enter Big Brother. He has always been a fan of the show and has previously come out tops in two other reality shows. He is hoping to use all his experience and charm to go all the way on Big Brother. If he wins the grand prize, he’ll invest it, but he’s also hoping to make his country proud and use this experience as a platform to achieve other things in his career

HEALTHY HAIR


Everyone has an occasional
, frustrating "bad hair day." While sometimes those days are 
unavoidable, you can do a few things and use a few hair care products to help your 
hair stay healthy and looking its best. Just follow these tips.

Keep Your Hair:

Shampoo the right way: It's important to find a shampoo that fits your hair's 
needs. If you have curly hair, get a shampoo made for curly hair. If you have dry 
hair, look for a moisturizing shampoo. Then, despite the well-known "lather, rinse,
 repeat" mantra, one thorough washing will do the trick. Unless you are using 
dandruff shampoo, you probably won't have to shampoo your hair every day, either. 
It's good for the hair and the scalp to have a day to replenish their natural oils.
 And remember to be gentle: Focus on massaging the scalp when you shampoo 
rather than scrubbing the hair.
Condition, condition, condition: Always use conditioner after shampooing 
to help your hair rehydrate; moisturized hair is healthy hair. You only really need 
to condition your hair from the nape of the neck down -- or the hair that would 
be pulled into a ponytail. You needn't condition the roots: The natural oils in 
your scalp should be enough to replenish the roots. For extra rehydration and 
shine, try a hot-oil treatment once a week.
Be kind while brushing: Hair is at its most vulnerable when wet, so you want
 to take extra care. Always comb wet hair, as brushing wet hair can damage it.
 Use the brush after your hair has dried. Brush starting at the scalp downward 
to distribute the natural oils from your scalp down the hair follicle.
Smooth it out: Hair tangles can be as painful as they are annoying. You can 
also destroy your hair when you try to force them out. The best way to de-tangle 
your hair is to use a spray-in conditioner; then, starting at the bottom, use a wide-tooth 
comb to carefully pick out the knot
Use heat sparingly: Heat doesn't have to be hard on your hair. Some hair products 
are specifically designed to help your hair recover from heat styling, and as long as 
you use heat sparingly and efficiently, you'll find that your hair will fare quite well. 
When you use a hair dryer, fully towel dry first; this will not only save you time 
when drying, but it will also cut down the time you apply heat to your hair. 
Always keep the dryer moving to avoid creating any hotspots in your hair. 
When using a curling iron or flat iron, use the lowest setting needed to create 
your desired style.
