About Bassey

Big Brother Africa 8

Bassey is from Freetown and is single. His favourite foods include rice and cassava leaves and pasta with tomato sauce. He enjoys book series like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games and his favourite TV shows include Revenge, Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries and True Blood. His favourite musicians include Rihanna, Beyonce, LMFAO and Justin Bieber and his favourite actors include Desmond Finney, Majid Michel, Tom Cruise and Halle Berry. His favourite spot in Sierra Leone is Freetown, “especially the beach”, and he says the best thing about Africa is the different cultures and “unity among us”. He also cites America as his favourite place in the world, seeing it as “a land of opportunities”. Bassey’s role model is Michael Jackson, “because of the way he handled his career”. His mom played a major role in his life because despite being a single mom, she took care of him and his siblings and was always there for them. His two proudest achievements are graduating from university - and becoming the first of his siblings to do so - and also being nominated in the Youth Excellence Awards. He entered Big Brother for the fame and money, believing that “Biggie changes lives”. He says it’ll be “weird” having so many people watching his every move on TV and says that he will get used to it with time. If he wins, he’ll buy a house for his family, his dream car, invest in business and produce a movie.
