A few days have passed since Big Brother, Mzansi Michelle “Mphowabadimo” Mvundla winner left with a whopping 2 million rupees.
A 36.45% vote of the fans said it all.
Mphowabadimo said that the house helped her to purge and find herself.
“Prayer and being in the diary room was my only solace in the house. I prayed. I would get paranoid and stressed like all the other housemates, but I kept my faith and remembered why I came there, where I come from, my family, and my goals and dreams. From day one until the last day, I never won anything in the house, I was always standing up for eviction and I finally made it to the end, was because of prayer,” she says.
In second place was Gershwin ‘Gash1’ Mthombeni who had 29,17% and Themba Mabaso 26,13%.
But Themba’s fans are not backing down and believe he deserved to win.
His supporters who also go by the name GhostNation have since opened a virtual wallet for donations after learning he had planned to expand his tattoo shop, build a home for his mom and pursue his music career had he won the money.
As requested by Ghostnation, we opened a go fund me account for Themba. It’s in his name so his Identity Document and personal banking details will be needed to withdraw the funds. Themba Gofund
“My plan was to get a bigger tattoo shop and expand the business. I wanted to build a house for my mother and then invest in my music. The plan was to release a few songs after winning. There was a lot I planned around the money but now that I don’t have it, I will still carry on doing the same but slowly and taking my time with the money I have.”
In an interview, themba said, he was sure he would win.
“I was sure I would win, but it is what it is, we move. I am disappointed but I am also happy that someone like Mpho won. I am very happy for her. People can’t expect me not to be disappointed. It’s unrealistic. I had big plans for the R2 million but I’m happy Mpho won. At one point in the game, Big Brother asked me who I think should take the money if not me, and I confidently said Mphowabadimo. I am very happy for her. We are still very good friends,” he said. But he is happy for Mphowabadimo.
Themba’s fans have since opened a GoFundMe account and are making donations from as little as R10. The virtual wallet is currently sitting at R79 000 and they are aiming for R200 0000.
