I’ve finished spending my $300,000 prize money, says 2013 BBA Winner, Dillish Mathews



Namibian beauty, Dillish Mathews’ life changed for the better when she emerged winner of the 2013 edition of the Big Brother Africa competition. That win made her $300,000 richer and turned her to a celebrity of sorts in her home country.

Four years down the line, nothing much has been heard from her in the entertainment industry, though she tried her hands at acting and modeling, as well as business.

In an online chat with Sunday Scoop, she stated that she has exhausted the cash prize she won at the Big Brother competition. She said, “I have finished spending the money I won at Big Brother. I made some investments and I also travelled round the world. However, it’s been fun because I enjoyed myself and also learnt how to be more business-minded.”

Contrary to insinuations that she has had things easy, Dillish countered, “I have been faced with rejection, heartaches, disappointments, betrayals and pain, but I made a decision to rise above it all and go in pursuit of my dreams. Nobody initially wanted to give me a chance, so I had to prove that I had something to offer by being consistent and hard-working. There are a lot of projects I’m working on and they would be coming to light soon.”

    Community Mutual Aid !!! *13 ADVANTAGES OF CMA OVER GHW/MMM and other schemes* *1. CMA IS NOT FACELESS* Right after the online launch in South Africa on 16/1/17, a Live Launch was held in Johannesburg, South Africa on 18/2/17. An official launch is expected to hold in Durban, South Africa on 18/3/17. These Live campaigns are expected to kick off few weeks after the launch in Nigeria on 1/3/17. GHW is relatively faceless and MMM even though it’s founder is known, there have been no live launches or official launches. *2. BETTER PAY * GHW/MMM yields 30% naira, 50%btc while CMA offers 40%naira, 50%btc. However you can be paid 50%thrice a month with our pledge strategy. These serves as an edge over other programs *3. CONSTANT 10% FROM DOWNLINES:* Just like in GHW and MMM, you don’t have to refer people to earn in CMA but if you do decide to refer others, in CMA you receive 10% every time those directly under you Provide Help. *4. CONTROLLED PRESENCE OF GUIDERS:* The presence of guiders in CMA does not mean that money is unnecessarily doled out to people. As the system is based on sustainability, There is a regulation on the amount of GH that Guiders and other participants can make. The presence of Guiders means that people may be involved in active recruitment to expand the people base and also a nobody has the opportunity to become somebody. *5. AUTOMATIC RECOMMITMENT :* In CMA when you PH and then GH after 30 days, the system will make a pledge of 30% of your GH amount, which you will be matched to pay in 3-4weeks, to ensure that funds is constantly circulated in the system. CMA is the only scheme available that auto recommits in order to attain sustainability. In MMM it’s not so. One can provide help of N2million today, get help of N2,600,000 after 30 days and then provide help of N20,000 the next time. In GHW as well, you are mandated to recommit 100% of your previous PH not more than 3days after GH, leaving you with 30% gain at the first GH. At CMA, you have your money back and extra at 1st GH, the system has been carefully designed to change people’s lives and sustain the system. No wonder our motto is : sustaining the system, changing lives. *6. Automatic AIP blockchain confirmation:* Unlike GHW and MMM, CMA has the technology to confirm Bitcoin payments simply by the payer uploading the transaction hash code. This helps to curb the issue of fake proof of payment that plagues and destroys many systems today, thereby frustrating honest participants. *7. MORE STABLE AND DURABLE:* Compared to GHW/MMM and other platforms, CMA is far more stable and designed to stay relevant long after the likes of MMM have met their waterloo and GHW have started matching people earlier than they do when they started (a strong indication why they changed to weeks instead of %). No wonder CMA has been predicted by experts to last for not less than 5 years. Who knows, a well designed system has no need to collapse. Rules and conditions have been put in place to ensure this. *8. MORE FORMAL AND BETTER ORGANIZED:* When you register on CMA an Email is sent to your email address to verify or activate your account. Your phone number also receives an CMA. The same thing happens when you are paired to send your money to someone, you’re notified by SMS and Email. This is just an example of how organized the CMA system is. We can credence to GHW on this point, they try to keep up with us on this. *9. THIGHT SECURITY:* Once you have put in your bank details, you can no longer edit it without contacting support. Hence, you’re encouraged to be careful when entering those details. The site is SSL protected and hacker proof. *10. RECYCLED FUNDS* You have the ability to recycle same funds multiple times in a month and get paid multiple times as well. *11. MONEY ON AUTO PILOT* At CMA, you can leave your money in the system for as long as 3months. Note that within this time, your money keeps growing and any time after 1 month, you can make a withdrawal. Does this not save us the stress of PHing and Ghing every now and then? I think it does. *12. NO CRASHING/FREEZING POSSIBILITY* In CMA the system is designed and structured to continually have enough funds so that the event of having more people GHing than those PHing, is not likely. The design and strict rules of participation ensure that the system is always healthy and balanced. *13. ULTRA RESPONSIVE SUPPORT* Unlike GHW/MMM, Merely logging into the CMA site, you will receive an instant message from support right on the screen and you can then have a chit chat even when you are not yet a member. Our support are always eager to attend to the welfare of participants. Should support not respond to you in as desired there will be SKYPE groups available for escalation of queries that support hasn’t dealt with. This goes to show that CMA is concerned about the wellbeing of its members. As one who has studied and benefitted platforms I can tell you frankly that CMA is better (in every sense), more formidable, stable and more durable than any scheme available.
