The last portion of the finale came down to the trio of Keagan, Prezzo and Lady May. In the end, 22 Year Old South African Keagan prevailed.
There were hot performances from international stars including Naeto C and D’banj, however, all eyes were on the housemates including voted-off housemates who came back to the stage for the finale!
Runner-Up Prezzo was recognized for his charity awareness work in the house and has been chosen as a One Campaign ambassador and will jet off to New York to watch Jay-Z in concert.
Keagan carts away the mega $300,000 prize and possibly a relationship with fellow housemate Talia who gave him a tender kiss as she was voted off during the finale.
