Big Brother Africa star, Cape Town-born, Keagan Petersen, arrived at Cape Town International Airport on Wednesday (15 August) to cheers of fans, family and friends.
The 22-year old man from the Mother City became the first South African winner of the continent's biggest reality show on Sunday, 5 August 2012 – and rocketed to superstardom and the massive USD 300 000 prize.
Big Brother StarGame, the seventh installment of Big Brother Africa, featured contestants from across the continent and after 91 days of 24/7 drama and thrills, it was clear that Keagan won Africa's hearts – and support. Keagan received 7 country votes from South Africa, Nigeria, Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Liberia and the Rest of Africa, outnumbering fellow Big Brother Africa housemates Kyle (Uganda), Lady May (Namibia), Prezzo (Kenya), Talia (Zambia)and Wati (Malawi).
Fans of the series from Keagan's hometown can congratulate him and go home with a signed autograph or photograph on Friday afternoon (17 August) between 16:00 and 18:00. He has put some time aside in his busy post Big Brother schedule for an autograph signing session at the Canal Walk Shopping Centre.
Keagan says: " I'm extremely grateful for everyone who supported me throughout the series and it's great to be back home again. It's amazing – and a bit weird – to be recognized by so many people, but meeting people who followed the show, is absolutely amazing."
Big Brother StarGame dominated TV screens – but also rocked the online space! The show generated over 2 million messages to TV, over 2 million unique online browsers, 128 000 000 page views, over 250 000 Twitter followers and nearly 900 000 Facebook likes!
