CLEO AND SULU from Zambia are among the 28 Housemates from around Africa who will be competing against each other for the USD 300 000 in the 2013 version of Big Brother Africa.

Cleo is 23 years old. She is an artist and musician from Lusaka. Single with a daughter, she is currently looking to further her studies. She entered Big Brother because it’s something she’s always seen herself doing. “I have been trying to enter Big Brother since I was 21,” she says. “It looks fun, but it’s clear to see that only the strong personalities and characters go far”

Her proudest achievement is making it into the Big Brother house, because she has always known it would be the biggest step she would make toward reaching her goals and realizing her dreams.

Cleo describes herself as “friendly, loud, caring, blatant and loyal”, citing her favorite qualities as her patience, tact, obedience, domestication, humility and respect. She dislikes backstabbers, liars, immaturity and disrespectfulness and promises viewers “a lot of realness, a bit of comedy, a lot of singing and rapping, a lot of ME to the fullest”.

Another Zambian housemate is Sulu and says he is a 31 years old Businessman. He says he is single and comes from Lusaka. He describes himself as “a guy that loves people” and says his best traits are his character and his enjoyment of the company of others. He values wisdom and intelligence in others, but dislikes negativity, gossip and evil.

He entered Big Brother because “there is a lot to learn about ourselves” and promises viewers lots of fun and life-changing lessons. If he wins, he’ll help young people realize their potential and invest in real estate. Sulu is humbled about the fact that so many people will be watching him on the show, but says that it’s “great” at the same time.

He says the best thing about Africa is its potential for development and says his favourite place in Zambia is Livingstone. Outside of his home country, he says America is his favourite place, because it’s “too much fun”.
