There will be no more Sunday church meetings in the Big Break Legacy house

There will be no more Sunday church meetings in the Big Break Legacy house. The man who led the prayers, Ntokozo Biyela (Pictured right), was voted off the entrepreneurial reality show on SABC 2 on Saturday night.

Biyela, 36, of Durban, who manufactures mobile units, said being voted off was a shock but also blessing because he was beginning to miss his family and his business was taking a knock. “I have learnt a great deal about business from the show and have made some good friends and got on well in the house. I hope they continue to have their prayer meetings.”

He said the experiences he had while on The Big Break Legacy with R5-million up for grabs, will stay with him for a long time. “I learnt a lot in terms of good decision making.”

Biyela was the fourth contestant to be shown the door on Saturday night in this popular SABC 2 show.

Those who have already left – Charmaine Kleynhans, Kris Muller, Thati Mashoa and now Biyela – all mentioned that they had undergone a life-changing experience.

The task for last Saturday’s episode was for the teams to do a fashion shoot for the sponsors, Markham and Foschini using models and professional photographers. The teams, Letsatsi and Newton’s 4th, had a R5 000 budget with which to work.

During the task, team leader Ifthakaar Shaik was criticised for his leadership and for taking ideas from the experts and presenting them as his own.

At the end of the challenge Shaik and Kelebogile Seleka came under review. Seleka shocked everyone by announcing that she didn’t want to remain in the game.

Zama Sibinda received the Blue Chip which guarantees him immunity for the next round.

Judge and show creator Ezra Ndwande remarked that he wanted the contestants not to do the ordinary but to take it all a step further to a new level. One of the judges, Van-Lee Johnson, said their presentations had been good, but one of the team’s lacked innovation.

The remaining eight The Big Break Legacy competitors, who will be fighting it out for the big prize are:

• Adele Lourens (31 from Brakenfell, Western Cape) – Green launderette
• Ifthakaar Shaik (24 from Johannesburg) – Furniture made from recyclable material
• Jared Pillai (24 from Montana in Pretoria) – Educational products for babies and young children
• Kelebogile Seleka (39 from Galeshwe, Kimberley) – Vending machines for sanitary pads in schools
• Sanele Makinane (22 from Klerksdorp in North West) – Information communications technology systems
• Teboho Mafodi (28 from Benoni in Gauteng) – Alternative green building material for homes in rural areas
• Tsepiso Makhubedu (19 from Mbombela, Nelspruit, Mpumalanga) – Publishing entrepreneurial books for children.
• Zama Sibinda (25 from Bloemfontein, Free State) – Laser projection advertising.
