Sierra Leonean’s representative at the recently held Big Brother Africa Stargame, Zainab O. Sheriff, has revealed that Ghanaian comedian Derrick Kobina Boney (DKB) is a professional slapper.
DKB was on Monday, June 4, 2012 disqualified from the reality show for slapping Zainab who peeped at him while he was taking a shower.
Speaking exclusively on Showbiz Today with Bola Ray on Hitz Fm, Zainab noted that if she had not taken part in this year’s Big Brother reality show and received that slap, she would not have been this famous.
She said, “I am the girl with the most famous slap in Africa, I tell you that slap was not easy ooo. I tell you one thing for sure, DKB can slap. DKB is a professional slapper.”
She also said if she had seen that slap coming, she would have run for her life. Zainab, who is also a model, however admitted that she had a big mouth and most contestants knew about it when they were in the Big Brother house but she said the slap was unexpected.
She revealed that DKB did not know that something like that could happen to them in the cause of their stay in the house.
Zainab disclosed that they had both gotten over it and were now good friends. “Well we are over it because I look at things in the positive side. I don’t dwell on negativity, DKB is sorry, I have forgiven him. I have moved on, I hope he has.”
Zainab also disclosed exclusively on the show that she was planning to change her nationality and become a Ghanaian.
She said, “Have you been to my country? I don’t like it at all, so when I arrived in Ghana, I just said to myself, I’m gonna change my nationality. I am going to be a Ghanaian and the most thing I like about Ghana is that, Former President Jerry John Rawlings is from Ghana.”
Zainab was in Ghana over the weekend to party with her Ghanaian housemates DKB, Keitta and Eazzy and she also used the opportunity to be part of the 4Syte Music Video Awards.
The model is currently based in Istanbul, Turkey and has done extensive runway shows for several magazines including Elle magazine, Marie Claire and Vogue.
