Karen Igho of Nigeria and Wendall Parson of Zimbabwe were on Sunday night declared winners of the sixth edition of the reality show, Big Brother Africa.

The duo were declared winners of the $200,000 each prize at a tension soaked evening in South Africa where the last seven housemates standing were eliminated one after the other. Karen’s win makes it the third time in a row a Nigeria would win the prize.

First was Kevin Pam in 2009, Uti Nwachukwu in 2010. The show lasted 91 days during which each housemate had a chance to prove to the voting audience they deserved the prize.

The atmosphere was charged and the fans ecstatic as the compere, IK, asked the top five to leave the House and join him on stage. Lomwe, Luclay, Karen, Sharon O and Wendall followed each other out of the House, through the Amplified fan park and onto the stage.

Vina, the other Nigerian who made it to the finals, was the first finalist to be evicted and as she walked out, was overwhelmed by the crowd who screamed in excitement. She fell to her feet as she was cheered by the audience.

Karen, a 27-year-old model and strip dancer based in the United Kingdom, has been in the midst of several controversies, factors which enhanced her chances of winning. As the house leader, she once put herself up for eviction to save another housemate.

She opted for a black and white animal print floor-length dress and cropped fur jacket, which left her silicon enhanced breasts hanging out.

Each housemate brought along with him/her entertainment, thrill, annoyance and other attributes its audience loved and made BBA one of the most watched TV shows on the continent.

A total of 26 housemates started out but only seven made it to the Sunday finals.
