A full month has passed since the finale of Big Brother Mzansi season 3 ended with Mphowabadimo, who is actually Michelle Vundla, winning the show’s fans and viewers. She walked away with a whopping R2 Million. As of today, the 27-year-old certified traditional healer and spiritualist from Daveyton is celebrating the one-month anniversary of her win, thankfully without having yet to tell the “I blew it all” story.
Mphowabadimo has been having a good couple of weeks since being crowned the season 3 winner of Big Brother from getting a whole new fan base to booking extra gigs, appearances, campaigns, and even commercials.
She took to Twitter this afternoon to share her short lived experience so far as a winner of the competition reality show. She wrote, “It has been exactly a month since I won Big Brother Mzansi, it was on this very day in April when Lawrence Maleka announced me as the winner in front of millions and millions of people, and my life has never been the same again. Big Brother Mzansi, Biggie I love you and I appreciate you. Ehhh Baba ehhh Baba.”

Since winning this title, Mphowabadimo has gone on to become a cover star for two magazines namely, Tagged Magazine and recently the May cover star of Exclusive magazine where she poses regally in a white peplum dress with a traditional printed headwrap with the city of Johannesburg as her backdrop.
She has also been announced as a brand partner for the local beer brand Castle Milk Stout. She took to her Instagram account with over 249K followers on ancestor’s day and wrote, “I’m so honoured to be part of the Castle Milkstout South Africa family. I had a great experience and some amazing conversations. We often don’t get the chance to celebrate those who came before us & platforms to teach the younger generation about these topics, This is something truly special #ancestorsday #castlemilkstout.” She also added in a follow-up post that she is glad to be working with a brand that aligns with that of her own and one that stands for, and understands what she believes in.

Later this month, the new media personality will be hosting a big homecoming party at The DKNY Lounge Exclusive in her hometown in Daveyton with an all-black theme. The entrance is free of charge to the public and she has urged her fans on Twitter to come and celebrate her win with her on the 21st of May. She tweeted, “Ehhh Baba, Daveyton ke New York. Save the date and see you on the 21st at Dkny Lounge for my Exclusive All Black Homecoming Party. It’s about the vibe #MphowabadimoXHomecomingparty”
The reality star who has been sharing a close friendship with her fellow Big Brother housemate and runner up Themba Mabaso popularly known to his Ghostnation fans as The Ghost took to Twitter to congratulate him for getting a whole house as a gift from his fans. She commended him for how he’s continued to thrive even after the Big Brother competition show, and referred to him as the “underdog who eventually became a top dog.”
