It’s impossible to hate Dillish. She is gorgeous, funny, super talented and she has that star quality that pulls attention wherever she goes.

Since her time in Big Brother Africa, sis has been making huge strides in her life, growing with each step and making news with her developments, she is one of those people that we always want to know what they are up to. 

Dillish is a darling not only in Namibia but also in Africa, with a special place in Naija and Kenya.

Let’s take a look at five times that sis literally broke the internet.

1. When She Won BBA "The Chase"


At 22 years old after being a big fan BBA, Dillish decided to try her hand in the show, but little did she know that this would be the beginning of her new life of fame and money.

After 91 days in the house, and surviving five nominations for eviction,  Dillish Mathews was named the winner of Big Brother Africa season 8.

On 25th August 2013, she became a new millionaire with USD 300,000 cash money prize in her pockets and a brand new life of limitless opportunities ahead of her.
Instantly, sis became the talk of the town, with media houses going after her for interviews and everybody wanting to know who this pretty new millionaire girl was.

In a way, Dillish put us on the map and got the world talking about Namibia.

2. Her Relationship With Adebayor


In 2019, Dillish Mathews started dating Togolese football star, Emmanuel Adebayor and the two lovebirds were the talk of all Africa.

Theirs was the sending roses, posting each with cute emojis, and sharing the cutest photos of them together kind of love that online in-laws love.

Fans even started speculating that the two had gotten engaged and it was only a matter of time before they tied nuptials and started making gorgeous babies.

It obviously left some people in tears when It didn't work out well.

3. Her Break-up With Adebayor


Africa's beloved couple broke up in 2020, breaking their fans' hearts and the internet as well with the sad news.

While Dillish chose to keep the details of the break-up private, Adebayor went all out in accusing Dillish of cheating on him with an Angolan sugar daddy, posting:

"Your girlfriend tells you ‘babe I’m going for a weekend trip with my best friend in Namibia. A few days later she’s completly unreachable then you end up finding out that YOur girlfriend is in Luanda, Angola and says she doesn’t know how she got there…"

The break-up news hit hard on Dillish whose past relationship with Avril's ex was unburied with headlines like 'Adebayor and Avril played by the same woman' trending and '#DillishDribbledAdebayor' being used.

Although we both hated the breakup but enjoyed the drama, we are glad that the two have seemingly moved on with their lives since then.

4. Her Catfight with Meriam Kaxuxwena


In 2019, Dillish got into a fight with her once bestie- beauty queen Meriam Kaxuwena and it was all because of Adebayor again. 

The fight which was dubbed as ‘The battle of the slay queens’ by many, began when Meriam mocked Dillish for dating Adebayor long after she had had her fun with him. In her Instastory, Meriam posted:

“I hope Dillish wore the MK lingerie that she bought from me two years ago when she’s with her soccer player in bed because that’s the same lingerie I wore when I slept in the same bed with Adebayor in London. I didn’t fvxk him that night. Remind her that I met him before she did.

This did not sit well with Dillish who asked Meriam Kaxuxwena to look for her in person and fight if she had a problem with her to which Meriam responded that she did not want to fight and even went ahead ahead and got a restricting order against Dillish.

It further escalated into a catfight when Dillish accompanied by her BFF DJ Sebeo, ganged up on Meriam in a nightclub and beat the crap out of her.

According to eye-witnesses, Dillish and her short friend shoved MK off the couch, pulled her wig off, broke her nails as well as her Xmax iPhone. 

News of the story circulated fast and soon enough both Meriam and Dillish were trending with netizens picking sides in the war.

5. When She Posted Sexy Photos on Instagram


Dillish is no doubt one of the most beautiful women on Namibian soil and she knows it.
She always blesses her Instagram fans with sexy photos of herself and although most of her photos are always of her in full clothes on, once in a while sis gives us a sneak peek into her goody-goodies.

It is no science that sexy photos always stir up controversy, with some pervs wanting to get “some” and the rest of Africa being critical about the evil there is in exposing “the Lord’s temple.”

This happened to one of Dillish’s posts where netizens flooded the comment section advising sis to stop dressing like Americans and to cover up.
We are glad that this is the 21st Century and women have the right to choose what they can dress in. Instead of responding, sis continued to live her life.
Which other Dillish’s iconic moments have we left out? Do let us know in the comment section.
