Winner of the 2013 Big Brother Africa Reality Show (The Chase), Dillish has opened up on her father’s sudden appearance into her life after she she emerged winner of the hit TV Reality Show.
Speaking to Joy News, the Namibian winner, said “joining Big Brother has only sped up the process of meeting my father and I’m blessed and I thank God for bringing him back to my life.”.
His father, Abdi Galgalo Guyo, a Kenyan ex-soldier met her mother Selma Pashukeni after 23 years of separation.
Dillish Matthews was declared winner of the eighth season of the Big Brother Africa (The Chase) Reality Show last August after she beat four other finalists – Elikem, Cleo, Melvin and Beverly – to win the US$300,000 grand prize.
Dillish believes opening up about her father has made her “an ambassador for people who are shy of coming out to say they have never met their parents before”.
She made this remark on her arrival in Ghana for the birthday celebrations of their Ghanaian housemate, Selly. The party comes off at Excel Lounge Friday night.
Selly says BBA housemates are coming for the party to prove they are determined to stick together forever even as the hit Reality TV show is over.
Dillish and former housemates, Melvin and Maria were met at the Kotoka International Airport on Wednesday evening by Selly, fellow BBA housemates, Elikem and Pokello and a cross-section of the media.
M.C for the birthday party is Nigeria’s Uti Nwachuku who is Big Brother All Star winner. He told Joy News he couldn’t resist attending the party after Selly invited him.
He said “you know as a senior in the game (BBA) I just couldn’t resist my small sister’s (Selly) demand, she booked me as M.C and I am here to make it happen. You know Ghana is my second home”
Meanwhile Dillish, (Portuguese for sweet) says she is working on opening more hair salons across Namibia with part of the 300,000 dollars she won at the TV Reality Show.
