Initially, most viewers didn’t realise that the real drama and entertainment in this year’s Big Brother was actually in the celebrities’ house known as Upville. Some viewers thought that just because the Upvillers were few (before Maneta’s addition this week they were only seven), they couldn’t conjure up any real drama.
 
Others simply saw the upper house dwellers as celebrities, who lounged through time throwing their egos around without putting up anything worth watching.
 
It was only after Maneta was introduced to Upville this week, having earned herself celebrity status by getting the biggest number of votes of the four housemates put up for possible eviction last week, that most viewers began paying attention to Upville. In fact most viewers got to look at Upville just to see how ‘ordinary’ Maneta would fit in with the arrogant chaps, who came to Big Brother when they were already big showbiz celebrities in their respective places of origin. 
 
But in the process of following Maneta to her new home, Africa discovered that all along they had been missing out on the real drama of this year’s Big Brother season. Viewers got to learn of the true nature of the ego clashes in the celebrities’ house – Prezzo bossing everyone around, Barbz thinking herself a queen, Lady May acting the ultimate diva, Roki considering himself every woman’s dream man. Africa also got to witness the power games that have been going on among the stars – alliances being formed, gossiping being put to use, politically-inspired romances springing up (Prezzo and Goldie).
 
Now as viewers are getting well-acquainted with the drama in Upville, which drama is also growing older and stronger, some are beginning to get irritated by its growing intensity and its bare rough edges. 
 
Particularly last night, many viewers were left demanding better behaviour from the Upvillers, after Prezzo got the house on fire as he took his alcohol out on Ghanaian DKB. The Kenyan rapper, after another booze binge, blasted DKB with a zillion F-words – blaming DKB for having employed gossip to come between his (Prezzo’s) romance with Goldie.
 
The quarrel also sucked in the whole house and unwrapped all the snitching and snaking and politicking the housemates have been playing on each other.
 
Viewers should just realise one thing; the Upvillers are just ‘messed’ celebrities being what they are and giving you what you should expect where celebrities gather – ego clashes and beefing and fighting and getting high on any available drugs and wanting to make sexual prey of others and, ultimately, employing controversial power games to emerge victors. Remember this year’s season is called Big Brother Star Game.
