Big Brother Africa Profile
Edith, a personal assistant from Francistown, entered Big Brother StarGame at the insistence of her friends, who told her she is fun to be around and would make a good Housemate.
She says that the opportunity to partner with her sister Eve on the show makes them both feel like stars. Edith says she knows her sister like the back of her hand and chose her because "with her sense of fun and my wild character, we are bound to blast the competition!"
She won't be compromising who she is to win the grand prize, though. "I will not put on a fake Edith just to win," she says. She is looking forward to being on screen across the continent and is excited at the chance to become a household name across Africa.
She warns viewers to expect her to "bring all the fun back" and says that if she wins, she will use her money to build her deaf and mute sister a house.
Edith describes herself as energetic, fun, adventurous and crazy and says the best thing about her is that she is a free spirit. She dislikes two-faced people and finds loyalty in others most admirable.
She likes eating steak with chilli gravy and pap and her favourite book is The Lady, her lover and the Lord by TD Jakes. She enjoys watching Ugly Betty and Keeping Up with the Kardashians and her favourite movies are Good Deeds and Diary of a Mad Black Woman.
She says she is a big Tyler Perry fan because she can relate to his movies and because the message depicted is what's happening in reality.
