Evicted Malawian Big Brother Hotshots representative Mr. 265 did not arrive through the VIP arrivals as it has always been the case with former housemates that represented Malawi in the house.
This was because the VIP was closed in anticipation of former presidents of Mozambique Joaquin Chissano and Botswana Festus Mogai, who came for mediation talks over the Malawi-Tanzania Lake Malawi border dispute.
But although the hotshot arrived through the ordinary arrivals, he received VIP treatment from his adoring family and friends who showered him with hugs and crowned him with Ngoni headgear and a custom-made wooden necklace.
And soon after he made steps towards the airport’s car park, Mr 265 was welcomed by The Floor Steppers Dancing Crew, who gave a scintillating dance routine—a mixture of patsula, azonto, break dance and Malawian beni.
In their routine, the dancers saluted and paid respect to the evicted hotshot as they danced to Africa Rising, a MultiChoice anthem which features Davido, Tiwa Savage and Mi Casa.
The Big Brother representative then took off in a Mercedes Benz for a press conference at Sunbird Mount Soche in Blantyre.
In an interview with The Nation, the housemate said he feels humbled to have received a lot of nominations and that the other housemates admitted to perceiving him as a strong contender.
“When I went in the house, I told myself that, although I am representing Malawi, I should be proud of myself and just be me because I do not want to tarnish my integrity and the reputation of my family just because I was in the house,” said Mr 265, whose real name is Masuzgo Msiska.
He said he was proud to represent Malawi and admitted to having no regrets for the things he did in the house.
MultiChoice will tomorrow host a homecoming party for the evicted housemate at Blue Elephant in Blantyre.
