Peeling Back Prezzo's Mask

Goin’ into the Big Brother Africa Stargame (BBA) House, ni***z had a different impression of  the Prezzo who went in, than they did of the Prezzo who came out three months layter. Yet Prezzo didn’t change, at all, in those 91 days ...

Watt changed waz the perception of peeps, once they got to know Jackson Ngechu, the dude; and not Prezzo — the showbiz media made myth . . .

I knew Prezzo was a great dude right 4rm the mid-oh-ohs, when he waz the only top-notch celeb who showed at a rock gig I gat @ a Museum Hill club long-gone.

Prezzo got floss...
Before he checked into the BBA Stargame, a lotta niccas were like “that guy flosses too mux’’, just coz as a young ‘un, he had the glitz idea of hopping fences with a heli-chopper.
But I alwez insussed here that Prezzo was down to earth, no pun intended; a humble dude who adores his ole ladie.

Prezzo got babes...
Peeps also didn’t like el Prezzo coz they saw he had too many chickas o’er the years — from luvlee Nikki, to Daisy, to Joy ... But in the BBA House, we all saw how a chicka like Goldie stuck to Prezzo like chewin gum to a shoe. Far as I know, the only chiquitta Prezzo calls ‘baby’ is his dote, whom he luvs wit all his moyo ...

Prezzo is a life-ist...
Peeps thot Prezzo lived life too excess — watt wit the cheddar, bubbly, parties, motis n bling. He waz easy to hayte on. But they 4got the boy is a lifer too; yaani, ameona life! Departed dad, dead BFF (Nazixi’s bro, Feroze), court cases, excess hayters ... BBA showed some that Prezzo is a human who has suffered ka-sisi.

Prezzo is grilled...
Sum folks thot Prezzo waz just a loud-mdomo in grillz, who is full o braggadaccio n machismo. In BBA house, shock on dem, they saw a sensitive, well-spoken jamaa, wit a really cool sense of humour.

Prezzo is indolent...
Then there waz this curious impression of Prezzo as some lazy dude, who just swatches n wakes up to spend. In that House, we saw Prezzo as one of the hard-working house-mates, n some peeps came to realise while they hayte n lay on their buttskis, peeps like Prezzo get their shizzle done.

Prezzo is dumb...
This is the wrong impression of Prezzo dat shocked Smitta most — dat, somehow, the lad is kinda blonde. In reality (TV), he turned out to be this sharp, talented dude with really intelligent Diary Room sessions. N he is street-smart too!

Prezzo is a caricature...
Peeps like to brand others — mostlee as a caricature. In Prezzo’s case —  a blinged-out lazy lifeist who likes babes n bubbly — waatt they forgot, n BBA brought out, was his strong character.

Prezzo is a loser
Coz of the grace to grass roller-coaster ride Prezzo’s life had taken in the last coupla years, some peeps were ready to laugh @ him n wryte him off. Yet he repped us (Kenyans) better than most of our Olympians in London twente-tweloff — n wen he landed 4 his bash in Carni two  weeks ago, dude was the toast of the town.
