About Zainab

Big Brother Africa 7

A model from Freetown – now based in Istanbul – Zainab is the youngest of eight sisters and four brothers. She likes to eat fish, rice, meat and cassava leaves and her favourite TV shows are Criminal Minds, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Drop Dead Diva. Her favourite musicians are Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Toni Braxton and Brandy and she says Sarah Jessica Parker is her favourite actress "because she's fabulous". Zainab's role models are Naomi Campbell and her mother – "both great women". She says that her mom has had the greatest impact on her life because she is kind, practical and "the best person I have ever known". She describes herself as fun-loving, awesome, nice, happy and honest and says her best traits are her personality and her ability to be honest no matter what the situation might be. She says viewers should expect "fun, fun, fun" from her. "I'm the girl next door – a fun, sweet, nice girl," she says. She entered Big Brother StarGame because everyone she knows pushed her to – plus she thinks it will be lots of fun. She entered with partner Dalphin because they are best friends. "I chose her because of her personality – she is a fun-loving, kind-hearted and down-to-earth individual, and most of all, she has the potential to win!" she says. Zainab is honoured that Africa will be watching her every move in the house. "I am sure Africans are going to have so much fun with me. I love cameras and attention, so this is just me," she says. She hasn't watched much of previous seasons of the show, but says from what she has seen, Karen is her favourite former housemate. If she wins, Zainab will publish her book, based on a true story and launch a shoe line.
