Big Brother star, Makosi Musambasi says her biggest group of haters were Zimbabweans. “That’s why I couldn’t stomach going back there for 7 years! My largest group of haters were Zimbos,” she says in one of her many tweets.
Makosi is in Harare and is said to be working on a talk show. She had been based in Nigeria after being kicked out of the UK where she had been recognised as a refugee.
She has said her first visit to Zimbabwe in seven years was meant to absorb the culture in her country of birth, hoping this would feed into her talk show. “I left Zimbabwe 13 years ago and since then, a lot of things have changed. So I want to use this opportunity to absorb the culture and society.
“I want to re-acquaint myself with the country so that when my show airs, I would know what I will be talking about,” she said, adding that she was a pan-African and she wanted her show to illustrate that.
Makosi said she wanted to move on with her life and put her Big Brother appearance behind her. But her notoriety on Big Brother never leaves her. But on Twitter she said :“I like how people actually get shocked how quiet and private I am! I live in a little bubble. That’s just who I am.”
Zimbabweans generally are known for not appreciating their own. When P Square drew massive crowds eyebrows were raised. “1 thing I respect Nigerians for is the love they have their own! reason psquare can fill a stadium in zim is coz nigeria loves them.” NewsDzeZimbabwe
