Oneal, Feza revisit tradition

JOHANNESBURG - There was pomp, colour and fanfare in the Ruby House last night, when Oneal visited Feza’s parental home to officially ask for her hand in marriage.

Oneal, who was accompanied by his uncles, Elikem and Angelo, cut a dashing figure in colourful traditional wear fit for an African prince, as he moved a step closer to officially making Feza his wife.

The blushing bride couldn’t contain her excitement as her sister Fatima, mom Natasha and aunt Annabel put the finishing touches on her dowry garb.

Everything seemed to be going according to plan until the bride’s father, Sulu, showed up to the dowry negotiations drunk as a skunk.

Sulu, the overprotective father gave his future in-laws a piece of his mind as he stumbled about the lounge and reminded them just how precious his princess is.

The bride’s mother, Natasha, was also as loud as they came and insisted the in laws stick around for a lecture on how to treat her precious daughter.

Fatima had no time to relax as she was sent from pillar to post, catering to the groom and his family’s needs.

She finally managed to catch her breath however, when Sulu ordered that the dowry negotiations start.

After going back and forth trying to come up with a bride price everyone would be happy with, both families reached a consensus.

The dowry will not be cattle, or any beast for that matter.

Instead, Oneal’s family needs to show up with carrots, corn flakes, cooking oil, cheese and lots of alcohol.

Once all the admin had been sorted out, both families settled in for a huge celebratory feast, whipped up by the women of the house, Natasha. “If I get married to Oneal one day, I want to wear the traditional Nguni hat, because Oneal is from Botswana. Wow, this feel’s so real”, Feza said, as the Rubies got out of character.

What’s Feza trying to say? Should we prepare for an epic wedding once Big Brother The Chase has wrapped? One things for sure. She and Oneal look good together and would no doubt make some really good looking babies!

Hakeem dislikes Pokello

Pokello would faint if she heard what Hakeem had to say about their relationship.

Zimbabwe’s Hakeem made an honest assertion during his Diary Session today.

While Pokello considers Hakeem her baby brother, Hakeem can’t stand her.

“I’ve loved him from the first day I met him he confides in me and considers me an older sister” said Pokello.

Hakeem repaid it pound for pound with: “We have never and will never be friends. She’s from uptown and I’m from downtown”. Ouch!

Pokello clearly thinks everything is fine and dandy between the two and unfortunately that is not the case.

Take a look at the video below, to hear as both housemates break down their relationship or lack thereof.

Elikem the head turner!

Isn’t Elikem the most stylish Head of House you’ve ever seen?

Elikem’s sartorial tastes are well documented. From classic, well cut jackets, to form fitting shirts, Elikem is turning up in grand style.

The Ghanaian is certainly putting his best foot forward as he continues ruling the Ruby roost this week.

Yesterday, Elikem told Sulu how he wants to dress for success, to show his fellow housemates just how serious he is about being their commander-in-chief.

“I need to look sharp man. I want to be the most stylish Head of House anyone’s ever seen”, he said with a smirk as he popped his collar, while Sulu looked on in amusement.

Elikem has made it a point to wake up in the wee hours every day, to put his outfits together. The fact that this talented Ghanaian makes his own clothes is just the icing on the cake.

On Saturday evening just before the Channel O party, Elikem debuted a new T-shirt with ‘‘Pokello’’ emblazoned on it, in diamante embellishment. What a way to make a statement.

At each other’s throats

Some of the housemates are already at each other’s throats, only a couple of hours after being given the Wedding Task.

Early this afternoon, Big Brother tasked the groomsmen from both the Diamond and Ruby Houses to build a wedding car that will be used to transport the wedding party to the wedding venue tonight.

Diamond House groom, Hakeem, was as calm as he and his boys threw ideas around.

Bimp and Melvin seemed to agree that a two seater would be perfect for the wedding.

Tanzania’s Nando however, wasn’t having any of that. “You can’t be serious. We need to go big guys. As intelligent as we are, a small car is all we can come up with? I say we make a 10 seater”, he said.

Hakeem didn’t seem to like the idea much and stressed how time consuming and complicated a 10 seater would be. Pretty soon feathers were ruffled as Nando stomped about, ranting and raving, in a bid to put his point across.

It goes without saying that putting together a wedding is highly stressful. It remains to be seen whether the Diamond boys will stick together long enough to see their project through to completion. We’ll just have to wait and see. –
