Jannette Georgina, 21 is the girl from Uganda representing Uganda in the Big Brother Africa show that has taken over the screens in most homes.
Jannette is a dancer who was among the four finalists in NTV’s dance show, Hot Steps 2010. Like most of Big Brother’s housemates, Jannette has a dark personality behind her beautiful features.
The girl from Uganda is a resident of Zana on Entebbe road and a school drop out. She is the last born of four children, all of whom are girls and studied from the best schools that you would want your child to go to in Uganda. She was at Namagunga Primary School for her primary level and Our Lady of Good Counsel in Gayaza where she studied from S.1 to S.3 when she was expelled for her stubbornness.
She then went to sit her O’level exams at St. Maria Goretti, Katende along Masaka road. She later joined St. Lawrence Citizens High School, Horizon Campus for her A’level but didn’t finish her A’level for she decided school was not for her. “After my S5, in 2008, i got bored and quit. What i want to be i didn’t see myself getting in our school system. I love the spot light where i can sing, dance, name it, that’s the kind of schooling i intend to do later on,” the girl from Uganda said.
Check this out, this beauty from Uganda did not even tell her parents she was going to the Big Brother Africa show. “My parents will be shocked, but not to death. See, they stopped getting utterly surprised by what i do; i don’t remember how often they were called to school to sign my last warning letters.” Now if wild does not win in Big Brother, i do not know what will.
Now, Big Brother is about socializing and making sure your housemates stand you and your character. This girl from Uganda, Jannette was not very good in that department. Way back in primary level, she had only one friend, Susan Serukuma (Mrs) who was the head of the music, dance and drama department. Her short temperdness is also another issue, may be it is because of her size. “See, size is not on my side and no one ever seems to fight for me so, i fight for myself. If you annoy me, i don’t pretend, i give it you live and in your face. I don’t know if that wins the money, but i will stay that throughout my time in the house,” she said.
If back ground can shape a person, well, for Jannette, back ground had nothing to do with her character. She is the daughter of a flight engineer, Fred Lutaaya and a business woman, Jane.
About relationships, Jannette says she is in one, depending on the weather. “Right now, we are off, it depends on the weather.” If you expect any nudity on her part, especially in the sex department, sorry for you, “I can’t tell, man, i just watch me and see. There is only one thing i won’t do through, sex. Away from my citizens, i am a self-respecting Catholic,” she said.
The girl from Uganda has a lot on her side, her crazy style, her confidence, she clearly is hardworking when she wants to get something done. So, get ready and watch the Big Brother show on Dstv Channel 198 and Africa Magic Entertainment.
Uganda is also represented by Kyle Duncan, a TV presenter at Urban TV on Skizzy.
