Big Brother Africa, the continent’s biggest reality show, returns for its ninth season on Sunday, September 7, with the housemates competing for a massive prize pot of $300 000.
Africa Magic can reveal that the new season will be known as Hotshots. This season’s housemates have hidden talents; they adore the spotlight and will let nothing stand in the way of their pursuit of fame and fortune.
Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, M-Net Africa regional director (West Africa), says viewers are in for almost as many surprises as the housemates.
“We work hard to make each season of Big Brother Africa bigger than the last — and we have really upped the ante this year,” she says.
“Big Brother Africa Hotshots is going to bring viewers exciting innovations, heart-stopping twists and uniquely African glamour, 24/7 for 91 days.
“Both fans and housemates are in for some hard-to-miss television!”
The housemates will start the game in two ultra-glamorous houses which are built with magic, fun and mischief in mind.
For 91 days, they will do their best to outshine each other in the hope of convincing Africa that they are the continent’s biggest Hotshot.
They will party like A-listers, rub shoulders with celebrity guests and face formidable challenges while negotiating Big Brother’s famous curve balls and twists.
The logo for Big Brother Africa Hotshots hints at the glamorous aspects of this season but viewers will have to stay tuned 24/7 to see what Biggie has planned this season.
Nigerian star IK Osakioduwa, will once again be the host for the fifth time in a row.
