Wakazi Set To Wow Airtel’s Big Brother Viewers On Sunday

By Uche Peter

Tanzania's own 'Bilingual Beast', Wakazi, will storm the stage during Sunday night's Big Brother: The Chase eviction show, live on AfricaMagic Entertainment and DStv Channel 197 & 198 from 20:00 CAT. Famed for his fearsome rhymes in Swahili and English, Wakazi will keep the energy high as audiences across the continent wait to see which housemates will be evicted from The Chase this week.

Wakazi has come a long way since he started rapping at high school talent shows. With his focus shifted elsewhere by his family, he never took music seriously – until he relocated to Chicago and his love for Hip Hop was rejuvenated. He's subsequently released three mixtapes, performed at festivals in North America and opened for megastars like Ice Prince and 2Face Idibia – and his debut album is on the way.

His signature blend of English and Swahili rhymes won him the nickname 'Bilingual Beast' and his ability to tell a story and mesmerizing manipulation of words and metaphors mark him out as a true creative force.

You won't want to miss Wakazi's lyrical Hip Hop stylings this Sunday – and don't forget to vote to keep your favourite housemate in The Chase! The housemates in danger of eviction are Angelo, Fatima, Bimp, Cleo, Pokello, Hakeem, and Nando. Voting is open now and closes at 06:00 CAT on Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, in other Big Brother news, Tumi Morake host of Big Brother Hot Room will also be making a guest appearance on StarGist, Friday 5 July at 19:30 CAT on AfricaMagic Entertainment. The South African comedienne will be talking about her life and career as well as giving an insight into the work that goes into putting the weekly satirical show together.

Big Brother: The Chase is headline sponsored by Airtel and produced by Endemol South Africa.
