Nando Khan, a former contestant on the Big Brother Africa (BBA) reality show is struggling with drug addiction.
Wayodi Lydia Joy, a Trace TV presenter, made this known through a series of Instagram posts.
Joy shared pictures and a video of the severely emaciated Tanzanian, who was clad in an oversized, partially buttoned shirt.
Nando was disqualified from Big Brother Africa The Chase, the 2013 edition of the reality television show. The Tanzanian lost his place in the competition after getting into a scuffle with Ghana’s representative, Elikem Kumordzie.
A year later, he was invited to participate in the 9th season of the all-stars show.
Several Tanzanian musicians have taken to social media to ask for prayers on his behalf.
Feza Manzi, an artiste and radio presenter, said that “a plan is needed as a society to fight this devil,” in reference to drug addiction.
“Let’s pray for our brothers and sisters who are caught up in drug addiction. We need to stop this drug business, we need to preach about it and make our kids fear these drugs. We also need to love the ones affected, pray for them because it might come to your house,” she wrote.
