BASSEY, Student, actor and model , 22,Sierra Leone

BIO: Student, actor and model Bassey is from Freetown, and is single. His favourite foods include rice, cassava leaves and pasta with tomato sauce. His favourite musicians are Rihanna, Beyonce, LMFAO and Justin Bieber.

Bassey’s role model is Michael Jackson, “because of the way he handled his career”. His two proudest achievements are graduating from University – and becoming the first of his siblings to do so – and also being nominated in the Youth Excellence Awards.

He entered Big Brother for the fame and money, believing that “Biggie changes lives”. He says it’ll be “weird” having so many people watching his every move on TV. If he wins, he’ll buy a house for his family, his dream car, invest in business and produce a movie.
