Former Big Brother Africa contestant and actor Melvin Alusa, at 42, finds himself the proud father of eight children.

Despite the sizable family, the elder brother of Bien Aime Baraza, a member of the renowned music group Sauti Sol, has no intentions of undergoing a vasectomy.

Alusa, who didn’t anticipate having such a large family, expresses gratitude for his blessings – five boys and three beautiful girls.

“I always wanted to have a big family growing up; I just didn’t think it was going to be this big,” Alusa shared.

When questioned about the possibility of expanding his already extensive brood, Alusa firmly stated that he is done having children.

However, he dismisses the idea of vasectomy, emphasizing that it’s not a path he would consider. “I am not one of those guys who champion for that. I am not going to make more babies; I will find other ways to…” Alusa explained.

The actor, known for representing Kenya in the ninth season of the popular reality TV show Big Brother Africa, spent 21 days in the house before finishing in the 20th position out of 26 contestants.

Subsequently, he shifted his focus to building his acting career and has since been part of notable films such as “The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind,” “Subira,” and “Mission To Rescue,” the latter being submitted to the Oscars.

In balancing the responsibilities of a thriving acting career and a bustling family life, Melvin Alusa stands as a testament to the joys and challenges of fatherhood, embracing the role with gratitude and no plans for surgical family planning.
