Vimbai On Rapper Jaguar and Star Gist

Former Big Brother housemate Vimbai Mutinhiri has spoken about her links to Kenya. The 25-year-old Zimbabwean model, who is a co-host to South African Lawrence Maleka, 22, in the ongoing TV show, Star Gist, said that: "I met Jaguar in South Africa during the finale of the Big Brother Amplified and we had a chat. I told him I love his single Kigeugeu."

The show features African entertainment news daily and exciting programme segments like the the 'Celeb cam', where a celeb or artiste attends an event and shares their view, their experience, where they were staying and who they were with. Vimbai said Kenyan celebs might "hopefully" be part of the show "because Kenyan music industry is one of the fastest growing in the continent."

She says she is loving learning more about her favourite African personalities. "We have so many more success stories than we give ourselves credit for". Her co-host, Lawrence, admitted that the most he knows about Kenya is that "the women are beautiful".

Lawrence auditioned for the show because he needed a new challenge.

"Star Gist is an amazing show that celebrates our own, showing that we are just as good if not better than our international counterparts. The crew is made up of a vibrant group of people that love their work." His proudest achievement? "My first television show, I had the highest ratings for the channel," he said.
