Is Busty Makosi Bust?

Busting it out: Makosi

A report in the Daily Star suggests that Zimbawean born former U.K. reality T.V. star Makosi Musambasi is broke. According to the article by Gareth Dorrian, “BUSTY Makosi Musambasi had her £10,000 fee for starring in Big Brother snatched by debt ­collectors”. The article goes on to state that, the debt collectors are demanding a further £20,000. The report also claims that Makosi’s huge debts are a result of massive legal bills that accumulated from her fight to stay in the U.K. as a refugee.


When Makosi appeared on the Big Brother show in 2005, she became a hit with the show’s fans due her voluminous bosom. She went on to make headlines after having what appeared to be a sex romp in a Jacuzzi with fellow housemate Anthony Hutton. They later cleared the air about the incident in the 2010 Ultimate Big Brother show, which they both starred in, by agreeing that they did not have sexual intercourse at all in the Jacuzzi. This did not change the fact that when the incident occurred in 2005, Makosi’s former employers regarded it as sexual intercourse and stripped her off the Register of Cardiac Nurses and therefore invalidating her U.K. work permit. This led to Makosi claiming asylum in the U.K., arguing that she would be severely attacked by mobs if she was returned to Zimbabwe, for her Big Brother antics. The Daily Star reports that, this case cost Makosi a whopping £50,000 in legal fees which is still not fully paid and hence the debtors are now on her track.

The report also states that “Makosi stays at home all day and won’t answer the door for fear of legal papers being handed to her.” Which is hard to believe as Makosi is a regular on Twitter and makes several tweets about her whereabouts and activities. We also understand that Makosi who came third in Big Brother 2005 has done quite a lot of jobs here and there, between then and now. She also starred in a low budget movie and modelled for a number of magazines and newspapers. We also believe that she is probably still on high demand for appearances and different roles in the showbiz arena. She is also a showbiz pundit for many tabloids and online newspapers. After her appearance in the 2005 Big Brother show, Makosi was romantically linked with a number of stars from the U.K.’s Russell Brand to Nigerian rapper/singer Tuface and South African/ Zimbabwean rapper Jah Seed.


According to the Daily Star, “a company chasing her for cash managed to arrange a third party order at Aylesbury County Court, Bucks, requiring Ultimate Big Brother bosses Endemol to hand over Makosi’s £10,000 fee.” The paper also says that Makosi owes a garage about £7,000 for car repairs dating back to May this year.

We will be making efforts to contact Makosi and we hope to provide you with the latest in this story in the next coming days.
