Last yearâ€™s Big Brother Africa (BBA) housemates â€“Malawiâ€™s Lomwe and Botswanaâ€™s Zeus â€“ have to speed up the continental release of their collabo or wait to be electrocuted into silence by the hip hop sparks emerging in the ongoing season.
Like the Double Wowza duoâ€™s encounters in the Amplified season, it appears the six-week-old StarGame is not only going to produce popular personalities around Africa but also the continentâ€™s latest rappers.
Wati, the expressive half of Malawiâ€™s representation in the reality show, has been at the centre of the music culture as housemates fine-tuned their acts in readiness for todayâ€™s hip hop presentations, dubbed Sprite Triple Slam â€“ Pimp It.
Hip hop is generally associated with lots of swag, slangs, â€˜bling blingâ€™ and donning unique outfits.
Early this week, Big Brother provided the housemates with different hip hop outfits, from caps to jumpers and shades, to help them spice up the preparations and swag life.
Wati and his fellow Downville crew â€“ Keagan and Leeâ€”were obsessed with their Mini Cooper. They spent much of Tuesday evening trying to pimp it and they really liked Biggieâ€™s ride offer.
However, Upvilleâ€™s scooter was not given so much attention. The stars seemed not to be interested in it.
Upvilleâ€™s Keitta, Barbz and Maneta were seen having a good time brainstorming how they could behave and present themselves this Thursday night.
â€œEverything in Upville seems to be bringing Keitta and Barbz together. As the two shared a â€˜hip hopâ€™ moment on the couch in the garden, Keitta started uttering some slangs at an amused Barbz!â€ reads an entry on the showâ€™s website.
Both houses wagered 100%, ready to participate in singing. Some have already started mastering their lines.
