WATCH| Khosi Twala’s Big Brother Titans Triumph Brings Newcastle To A Standstill
The streets of Newcastle in Kwa-Zulu Natal were brought to a standstill as the residents celebrated the triumph of one of their own Khosi Twala who emerged as the winner of the first season of Big Brother Titans last night.
The moment Lawrence Maleka and his Nigerian co-host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, announced Khosi as the winner of this year’s Big Brother Titans will be a memory that the people of Osizweni, Newcastle will cherish forever.
Khosi’s victory in the 11-week long competition, which saw her make it to the top six, earned her the grand prize of R1.8 million in USD.
In the final showdown, the competition was reduced to just two contestants, with Khosi facing off against the fan-favorite 23-year-old Kanaga Jnr from Nigeria.
As the co-hosts delayed announcing the winner, the two contestants embraced each other tightly, clearly showing their nerves.
When Lawrence finally declared Khosi as the winner, the ecstatic journalist broke free from Kanaga Jnr’s embrace, leapt in her high heels, before falling to her knees and breaking down in tears.
Kanaga Jr gracefully approached her, knelt on one leg, and congratulated her.
The victory was a cause for great celebration among South Africans.
The jubilation was not confined to the show’s finale; it reverberated all the way to Khosi’s hometown of Osizweni.
Fans left their homes and flooded the streets, bringing the KZN township to a standstill.
As the community members filled the streets, they shouted demanding a celebration in honor of Khosi. Cars honked and revved their engines as they lit up the township, adding to the festive atmosphere.
It was a night of partying and revelry that the people of Osizweni will never forget. Watch the video below.

Despite Khosi’s move to Johannesburg to pursue her career as a news reporter, the residents of Osizweni still celebrated her victory with great joy.
Khosi’s success in the Big Brother house can be attributed to her talkative nature and open-mindedness, which helped her navigate the challenges of the show.
In her introductory video for Big Brother from January, Khosi had described herself as a clueless contestant, but quietly intelligent.
One YouTuber reacted to her victory by describing her as “Kink Khosi, the mover, the shaker, the player, the most strategic.”
Twenty-four contestants from Nigeria and South Africa battled it out in this year’s reimagined Big Brother Titans.
