The muses visited Big Brother Africa audience (BBA) this week as fans eulogised the limitless dance and mouth moves of evicted Zambia’s housemate Mampi.
In an ode to the Chimo ni Chimo sultry singer (born Miriam Mukape), a fan-turned-poet satirised her gossip andÂ fun moments.
Reads the tribute Oh Mouthy Mampi: “In Upville recently you were/ good singer in ZambiaÂ you are/A mouthy Upviller in BBA you became…
“For the good dance moves you were loved/For the juice you made [South Africa’s housemate] Barbz appreciated/A smiling face you always maintained/Greatly missed by [Zimbabwe’s] Maneta you will be/…”
And the author delves straight into her contagious mouth job which Ghana’s DKB seems to have acquired.
“Keeping quiet to you was a taboo/Gossiping was another hobby …/Causing wars was an added feature/A talking talent Mampi you possessed…” the poem reads.
Apart from the despisedÂ chattering, the first VIP to exit the K50 million reality show was famous for an allergy to cooking andÂ passion for boogie.
The 2006 Ngoma Awards most promising artist fuses R&B, Ragga and Lozi folk dance Kalindula.
Even the pressure of facing presenter IK on the eviction stage on Sunday could not dissuade her from her daily dance.
She displayed the hip moves common in all her inspirations, including South Africaâ€™s Brenda Fassie as well as USâ€™ Shakira and Beyonce.
Up for eviction on Sunday are Downvillers occupantsâ€”Botswana couple of Edith and Eve as well as Ghana’s Keita and Mildred. This leaves Malawi’s Nafe and Wati safe for this week.
The show will be headlined by Uganda’s guitar star Maurice Kirya of the Nanaagira and Book of Kirya fame.
