This year’s edition (the seventh season) of the Africa’s biggest TV shows; Big Brother Africa, is coming back for Africans viewing pleasure by May 2012. The announcement has come this early to give individuals who are interested in partaking ample amount of time to get set for the incredible journey.
The Managing Director of M-Net Africa, Producers of the show, Biola Alabi, says BBA’s audience should expect something different from past editions. MNet’s Big Brother Africa pulls off another huge surprise and this year. The producers this season are doing something different. Those applying must DOUBLE-UP to compete and it means that if you want to enter for this year’s season, you must partner with another person to enter as a pair. You can pick your classmate as your partner, your best friend, your sister, brother, family friend, cousin, your husband/wife if possible, your neighbor if you trust him/her etc.
M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi says, “We are thrilled to be offering a huge, new, USD 300 000 prize and to include two new countries who were chosen to participate based on their ongoing
interest in the series and their growing DStv audiences. And while Ethiopia won’t have a housemate this year, we’ll look to include them and other non-housemate countries in other ways if the opportunity arises, as we do every season. We are and have always been proudly committed to making this a truly African show. And as for Mozambique, they will be included with a housemate – but that’s all we are saying at the moment. Of course, the really big news this season is that entrants must enter as pairs. In the past we’ve seen a natural and continuous cross-over between individuals and their families, their friends. So this year, we decided to include that as part of the game. It will definitely make a dramatic addition to the series so we urge people to enter and experience what will be a uniquely different Big Brother Africa”.
This year, if you want to enter Big Brother Africa you can do so if you and your partner are citizens from one of the following participating countries: Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Both partners must come from the same country, must be 21 years or older, must be fluent in English and must have a valid passport.
