Big Brother Africa is the name, The Chase is the game and it’s on already! As usual Kenya is well-represented by two fly lasses, Huddah Monroe AKA Alhuda Njoroge and Annabel Mbaru. But how well do you know the two housemates?
Student and fashion designer, 24 year old Annabel says she doesn’t have any children – but considers her pets to be her babies. She enjoys reading philosophical literature. Her favorite foods include Ethiopian, Nigerian, Oriental and Italian and she lists her favorite TV show as Big Brother.
Annabel’s favorite place in Kenya is Mombasa, because she loves the water and says it’s the only place she finds peace and tranquility. Outside of Kenya, she loves Greece or Rome because of the way they have preserved the artifacts and culture through the generations. “I love art and I’d kill to live there!” she says.
Annabel says she loves attention and is looking forward to having Africa’s eyes on her 24/7. “It makes me feel like the princess I’ve always been,” she says. Her family is happy she’s going to be on the show and she says they can’t wait to tell everyone they’re related to her.
21 year old Huddah is a model with a Diploma in Programming. She loves Chinese food, ugali and fish.
Huddah’s favourite place in Kenya is Mombasa, and she says the best thing about Africa is the diversified cultures and natural resources. Her favourite place outside Kenya is Miami, because it’s a beautiful place and she loves tropical weather.
Her role model is Marilyn Monroe, because “she was intelligent, a go-getter, a sexy woman with a charming smile and also very popular”. Huddah entered Big Brother because she believes it’s a once in a lifetime experience and she felt she really needed to be part of it. “Plus it has brought a lot of opportunities in life for a lot of people,” she says.
She says having Africa’s eyes on her 24/7 will make her feel like a star, because she loves the attention. She says that if she wins the USD 300 000, she’ll double the money, expand her brand and build a business empire.
