All roads will be leading to Lagoonda on Sunday 13th December 2020 to witness the grand finale of this year’s Big Sister reality TV show, which started on 1st October 2020 on the theme; ‘No Woman No Cry’. A total of 35 women randomly selected from around the world were expected to participate but only 29 turned up for the show, which will end on Sunday 13th December 2020.
Every week the show saw the crowning of a new ‘Mammy Na Power’ after a struggle called ‘Madam Yoko Drama’. Only three roommates have made it to the final including Yabba Mansaray from Sierra Leone, Marjo Bona and Kadiatu Tricket from the US.
Patricia Jaka was the last roommate to be evicted from the house on Wednesday 9th December 2020 during the midweek eviction. The winner will bag a whopping $50,000 cash prize.
After she was evicted, a weeping Patricia Jaka said she was crying because she was leaving her best friend Yabba Mansaray, who she gave her full support to win Big Sister Season 2, and went further to thank God for being in the house for 10 weeks, which she said made her a winner.
She said she was leaving the house a changed lady with a vision to fulfill her dream.
The Chief Executive Officer of the reality show, Zainab Sheriff, during an interview said the reality show was expected to last seven weeks, but will last 10, assuring that people are watching what they are doing hence “we need to adjust our programme.”
When asked if she wanted Yabba Mansaray to win the show because of their relationship, Zainab said “that is not true; you can only win the show through a voting process,” adding she had to make the show credible and “our integrity is very important to us.”
She said the voting process is not constant as it changes every week, and the roommate with the lowest vote is evicted.
Asked why the First Lady didn’t visit the village though it’s a women empowerment show, “and accusing you, Zainab, for not inviting her, but during the first edition she was around and you, Zainab, was absent.”
Responding, Zainab said she holds nothing against the First Lady and has great respect for her as First Lady of the country. “The first edition reality show has ended. It’s behind my back. They had a crowning ceremony, but by then I was in Ghana. But for the final on Sunday, she has been invited.”
She revealed that “the Gambian roommates want to see her” and she is trying her best to take them to meet the First Lady. Big Sister fan Susan Sesay said that the last evicted roommate, Patricia Jaka, aka Street Pikin, has emerged as one of the most controversial roommates of the Big Sister Village.
“She is very interesting, dramatic, entertaining and intelligent as well. She has been giving viewers what to talk and laugh about, but for the coming days she will be missed by some viewers who loved her for who and what she is.”
