Ugandan girl in Alicia Keys’ video

Feminism is what Alicia Keys’ latest single Superwoman is all about, but what is more interesting about the video?
Well, there’s a face of a Ugandan in the video of Superwoman.
If you’ve watched this video then you must have seen, towards the end, when a young African girl/student Nassanga Galabuzi comes on screen wearing a uniform.
To jog your brains a bit: Keys visited Uganda and went to Masaka where she met several children who had lost their parents to HIV/Aids. Some of them were looking after their siblings and yet still they had to go to school. However, we’re not quite sure of where Keys met Nassanga.
The Superwoman video was filmed on June 9 and 10 at Quixote Studios and Centre Studios in Los Angeles. And Keys plays many roles of women at their best strength and effort. Throughout the course of the video, she embodies a young mother applying to a university, an African woman, a businesswoman, a Cleopatra-like pharaoh and an astronaut.
Nassanga’s appearance is a sign that Keys has never forgotten about Uganda.
What a pride!

Chameleone at the beach!

CAPTION: Chameleone with wife Daniella and their son Abba at Lido Beach

His ankles are still swollen, his face looks pained, and sometimes he appears to be fighting to catch his breath, poor Jose Chameleone.
But folks, try not to fret too much, as the singer seems to be improving.
In fact, Chameleone has already resumed going out to have fun with his family and friends.
Well, we also felt the same after stumbling on Chameleone at Lido Beach over the weekend.
The singer who was being wheeled around by his friends shared a great time with his people at the beach. They even had a barbeque as he played with his son Abba.
It still seems funny to see a chap, known for being vigorous on stage, simply being wheeled but we’ve been informed he could soon get back on his feet.
You see, even when he needs to pick money from the bank, they drive him there and he’s wheeled into the bank or ATM.

Who Do We Evict This Week?

CAPTION: Whatever Morris thinks he did by saving TK, only God knows

Hi folks,

Up for eviction this week are; Ricco, Sheila, Hazel and Tawana.

Hmmmm so Morris saved TK!!!!! Juju (TK’s sweater)? Temporary insanity? Trying to revenge because Ricco took Latoya? And what was that stupid look on his face as he announced he had changed his mind? Oh lawd!!!

If he had left it as it was, maybe Africa would have pondered on the fact that Thami put his ex Hazel up for eviction or that Sheila and TK had similar voting patterns and of course TK would have been the 4th house mate to be evicted from the house. But no…home boy had to try to be funny!! Who is laughing? Arrrhhhhh*%#$@*

Ok. Now that that’s done, lets hope Africa concentrates on Granma’ Tawana’s behavior last night. Jumping on poor Munya, then crying for TK and having a ‘mini’ cat fight with Sheila over TK…please! It’s between Granma’ and Sheila.

…but we do have a bone to pick with that Kenyan girl remember?

To vote by SMS – subscribers to MTN, ZAIN, UTL & Warid can simply send the name of the housemate they want out of the house to 6626. For example type VOTE SHEILA and send to 6626.

Three BBA top dawgs up for possible mchomo...

Welcome from Idd, ladies and gentlemen, even Rafshizzle your reliable BBA 3 blog is back from Idd so let's shoot!
Our girl has written some more stuff today and it goes like this:

Well done people,
As emotional as it was the girl had to go. But who could have anticipated that reaction from Uti, those crocodile tears from Ricco and that ‘ugly’ cry (as Oprah calls it) from Mimi?...the pacing up and down the corridor from Munya…priceless TV moments…
I could have paid cash dollars to see the look on Latoya’s face when she realized how loved Lucile was by her fellow housemates. Even granma’ Tawana was upset.
This week Uti, Ricco and Munya are up for possible eviction. Some viewers have registered a club to save Munya but me thinks it would be a wrong move for us to join in…Uti and Ricco = ENTERTAINMENT…Munya = ‘my reason for being in the house is gone’ ‘I miss Lucile’ whine moan whine!!!
To vote;
By SMS – subscribers to MTN, ZAIN, UTL & Warid can simply send the name of the housemate they want out of the house to 6626. For example type VOTE MUNYA and send to 6626.
Online – you can vote MUNYA out of the house for free on the official BBA website ( ).
By phone – you can also vote MUNYA out by dialing +27839000000 and selecting the number that corresponds to MUNYA.
Don’t forget that every time you vote, you increase your chances of winning a Sony Playstation 3 gaming console or a Digital Mobile Television handset, courtesy of DStv Mobile.
Grant Munya’s wish…let him go meet Lucile while the feelings are still ‘fresh’…

During the second eviction on Big Brother Africa on Sunday September 28 (last week), Namibia’s Lucille Naobes became the second person to depart the house. She got only one nomination during the normal nomination, however, she hit the final nominees' list when Zambia’s TK (who was nominated) used his Head of House powers to save himself from the nightmare instead replacing himself with the 21-year-old beauty from Windhoek - to hell with her beautigulness, this is a game anways. She was so sad and heartbroken and so was Munya and some viewers but life goes on. Now, it seems the whole world hates TK and Africa is waiting for him to passby the nominees' list. Big Brother Africa is screened on M-Net and 24/7 on DStv channel 198. For more information on the series, log on to
