It was the second birthday this week in the Big Brother house, and Weza woke up to a very wet birthday morning. She refused to let the weather dampen her spirits though and cheerfully told the rest of the housemates that rain on one’s birthday is a sign of good luck and prosperity.
Later in the evening, the Headsmates serenaded her with a birthday song and presented her with a cake which Vimbai baked. She blew out a candle and bit on it, saying it was an Angolan tradition. Meanwhile, Kenyan Danny was woken up by the blaring sounds of Katy Perry singing ‘Firework’ and got up reluctantly to wave his pink pompoms – Ernest’s eviction gift – in the air.
The housemates soon resumed the week’s task and while some of them were being prudish when they realised their roles required a fair amount of ‘kissing’, Vina had no such reservations and quickly employed an eager Weza, to demonstrate how to give the impression of kissing without actually locking lips. Hmmmn!
Later, while still in character, housemates had a chat session with Big Brother and expressed how challenging they were finding the task, especially waking up at odd hours for emergency procedures. Luclay meanwhile gushed that the script was the best he had come across in all his acting career only to clash with erstwhile buddy Karen later on the direction the story was going. A miffed Karen insisted she was just offering her opinion.
In a display of insecurity Kim confronted Nic and demanded to know what was going on between he and Bernadina. Nic was unyielding and insisted she drop the matter.
