BIG Brother Africa star Maneta has inadvertently let slip the name of a Harare businessman whom she claims to be dating – prompting limp denials from her lover. The 21-year-old Bulawayo lass – who has rejected advances from compatriot Roki in the M-Net TV show – has told housemates she can’t wait to be re-united with Wicknell Chivayo.
“All I can say is I’m not in love with Maneta at this stage to be precise. Who knows what the future holds? I also think she looks EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE and I like the light skin,” he wrote.
Maneta’s outing of Chivayo finally solves a mystery that has befuddled the TV show’s viewers since the first week when she was involved in an amazing row with her sister, Teclar.
The two women rowed in front of other housemates after Maneta accused her sister of “snipering” her boyfriend.
Maneta said Teclar and the unnamed boyfriend – at the time – had “started going on dates and picking each other up” behind her back.
Teclar protested: “I did not take that guy from you, and I did not sniper him. Why would you think that about your sister?”
Maneta’s elder sister – who was evicted from the show after just seven days – went on to explain how Chivayo had invited her to his house.
“The guy has his stuff, he has so much stuff,” she explained. “He said ‘I want you to tell your young sister the things that I have’. I even took pictures and I said ‘look at your husband’s stuff’.
“He said I was a nice person to talk to. He took me places. He is vain like that, he likes to be seen with good women and so on.”
