Uti Nwachukwu Wins Big Brother All Star
Nigeria’s representative in the novel BBA All Stars edition Uti Nwachukwu was tonight announced winner after an interesting 91 days in the house.
Uti, 27 and Munya, 24 from Zimbabwe were the last two contestants in the house. Both guys, with their national flags hanging on their shoulders, and anxiety written on their faces, waited as host IK worked the audience as he prepared to announce the winner.
And so it is that at 7:45PM Nigerian time, IK announced Uti as the winner.
And Munya wept; as Uti jumped up, broke into dance and songs and sang the Nigerian national anthem proudly.
Interestingly, Munya was leading in polls for several weeks, and considered by many as a sure contender for the big prize. But, apparently, Nigerians, with huge numbers on their side, voted for their own. The Nigerians are not alone though – seven other countries voted heavily for Uti, according to IK.

A big congrats to our guy Uti for winning the big cash.
