About Munya

Big Brother Africa 3

Name: Munyaradzi Chidzonga
Age: 22
City of Residence: Harare

22-year-old acting school graduate Munya is passionate about acting, film, television and the creative process. Determined and focused, this ambitious Zimbabwean wants to act and produce a short film soon and launch a production company. Munya believes he was chosen to participate on Big Brother Africa because he has charm, enthusiasm, confidence and is likeable. He says that his special talent is his ability to read people though he admits to sometimes over analyzing situations and being tactless and moody. He also reveals that he’s an attention seeker and his message to Big Brother audiences is to ‘sit back and enjoy the ride’. Citing his father as his hero for being ‘the epitome of a gentleman’, Munya believes in the Voltaire quote, ‘There is no problem that can withstand the assault of sustained thought.’

This passion evolved into film but my taste for live performance has always been in my blood." Munya's favourite quote is: "Let's make history" and his motto is: "courage, integrity, faith." He also says he doesn't find lies funny and that cowards and liars make him angry. Asked his special talent and he replies: "My ability to read a situation." He says his strategy in the house is to win and that he wanted to be on the new series of Big Brother to promote his film and re-connect with his fans. "Oh and to get my 200 000 dollars at the same time." He identifies Hazel as his favourite housemate in his first season of Big Brother because: "I respected her self control and poise."

All I need is a stage... only God can judge me."
