kevin says win is the start of greater things
BIG Brother Revolution winner Kevin from Nigeria says Africa has not heard the last of him.
"I intend to stay in your faces. Be ready because if you turn on MTV, BBC orM-Net you are going to see me there. This is only the start.
"Right now I'm still pinching myself about winning the money."
Kevin, 27, who has been described as "simple and short with guts", has decided that he is going to use some of his R1,6million prize money towards enhancing and marketing his talents - music and poetry.
"What is more important is the leverage that I will have. Being in the Big Brother Revolution house has taught me how to fish, and now that I have this pedestal to stand on ... I am going to continue to fish and catch lots of them.
"Sunday night was the greatest night of my life. It was a dream come true. I am really grateful and happy that Africa loves me and I am going to make you all proud."
The finale saw Kevin facing off against fellow contestants Nkenna (Nigeria), Edward (Namibia), Emma (Angola) and Mzamo (Malawi).
Speaking about the last stressful hours Kevin said: "As one of the Big Five, I knew that I had a 20 percent chance of winning.
"I did, however, think that my chances were greater than that when I looked at the competitors that were left in the final."
Kevin did not feel safe from elimination throughout the entire production.
"At one stage I thought I may be facing the end of the road.
"There were three Nigerians and two South Africans in the house.
"I was convinced that if I had to come up against (South African) Quinn and (Zimbabwean) Kristal I would not stand a chance. When I survived that eviction I was like, 'Okay, Africa feels me'. I was really happy and appreciated that I was raised from the dead."
