Exclusive Q&A with Big Brother Mzansi S4 Contestant, Fahima

Big Brother Mzansi S4 has been nothing short of electrifying, aptly titled "S’ya Mosha" - signalling chaos and excitement ahead. We caught up with Fahima, the latest evictee, for an inside look into her experience.

Produced by Banijay and Red Pepper Pictures, with LottoStar back as the headline sponsor, this hit reality show has been a constant trending topic since it premiered on Mzansi Magic on January 21st.

The highly anticipated season has been marked by drama, strikes, disqualifications, and weekly eliminations as housemates contend for the coveted R2 Million grand prize. Viewers are hooked, eagerly sharing their thoughts online in real-time. Last Sunday was no exception, with Twitter buzzing as users made their eviction predictions.

Glamour: What was your initial motivation for entering the Big Brother house, and did your experience align with your expectations?

Fahima: To be honest. I had never watched the show, so I thought it was going to have a chill vibe the whole time. When I woke up every morning, however, it was just task after task, and I was like, "Oh, my goodness! What's happening?" There was always something going on.

Glamour: How did you cope with the unique challenges of living in a confined space with strangers under constant surveillance?

Fahima: As time goes on, you actually forget about the cameras. It only happens sometimes. In terms of challenges, it was definitely the loneliness. I'm more of an introvert and loner, and even though I tried to engage with the other people, most of the time I was alone.

Interviewer: Did being isolated impact your mental and emotional well-being? How did you cope with loneliness or homesickness?

Fahima: Since I'm always alone, it wasn't that hard. The hard part was being with other people. Not seeing the outside world is my everyday life. I'm not someone who's always out socializing. I missed my daughter and my family, though.

Glamour: Can you talk about your role as a disrupter and if you think you delivered on it?

Fahima: I didn't have a game plan. I just wanted to have fun. I didn't know what to expect. I did disrupt things, but not everything was shown on camera.

Glamour: Is there anything you would have done differently during your time in the house?

Fahima: I would have tried harder to get to know the other housemates and put in more effort with the tasks.

Glamour: How did your experience impact your personal growth and perspectives on relationships?

Fahima: It made me realize that no one is your friend. We're all chasing the money. It also motivated me to focus more on my music career.

Glamour: Can you talk about your last moments in the house?

Fahima: It was fun. I enjoyed my last Saturday, especially dancing to hip hop.

Glamour: What is your biggest takeaway from the experience?

Fahima: You can do better if you're not as shy as you think you are. Just be yourself and push yourself.

Glamour: What advice would you give to future contestants?

Fahima: Be yourself, stay in your lane, stay away from drama, and do your best to get to know your housemates.
