Social media went crazy last night over what Maneta said to Roki on Big Brother Stargame. So while we generally ignore the reality show, the newsfeed was just going on and on about it.
Some Zimbabweans even accused Maneta of being un-Zimbabwean. She has lost a lot of fans back home with some of the administrators of her Facebook fan page even quitting which we find a little funny.
We are not saying that what she said was particularly kind but let’s face it, given the kind of reputation Roki has back home she was never going to be romantically interested in him. He tried his luck and it didn’t happen because she can read the papers. The boy has 5 kids with 4 women – allegedly – and has been arrested way too many times.
The exchange between the two seemed nothing more than two frustrated people. Some of the details are not that interesting. She calls Roki a ‘boy trapped in a man’s body’ and Roki calls her stupid. Who cares? She talks about she is mature and drives a car.In her eyes Roki hasn’t. So what?
Now what we found interesting is that Maneta does not like Roki at all but she did not put him up for nomination because she felt that she had to be patriotic. She doesn’t like boy but because he is Zimbabwean she felt she had to back him.
It is easy to dislike her on many fronts because there is a huge #teamROKI camp out there. She said things about him that many took to mean she was dissing Zimbabwe. Let’s face it though, Roki is not a really a poster boy for everything positive about Zimbabwe. The dude can sing and he can dance and he is a nice boy but in reality Maneta is reacting the way a lot of women back home react towards him. A lot of girls wouldn’t want him to touch them given his rep. She is reacting like one of those women and funny enough, those women are judging her.
But then again, she is a little nobody from Bulawayo with what some people called a funny accent.
That said, we think they both need to get laid. That is what happens when people are on drought.
Would be funny if they ended up in the same bed.
