As the 7 September opening date for the ninth season of the continent’s biggest reality show, Big Brother Africa, inches closer, AfricaMagic has revealed that the new season will be known as Big Brother Hotshots.
Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, M-Net Africa Regional Director, West Africa, said the viewers are in for more twists than ever before as this season’s housemates have hidden talents, adore the spotlight and will let nothing stand in the way of their pursuit of fame and fortune.
“We work hard to make each season of Big Brother Africa bigger than the last – and we’ve really upped the ante this year. Big Brother 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 unmissable television experience,” said Mba-Uzoukwu.
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 one another in the hope of convincing Africa that they are the continent’s biggest Hotshots.
“They’ll party like A-listers, rub shoulders with celebrity guests and face formidable challenges – all while negotiating Biggie’s famous curveballs and twists,” she added.
Nigerian top OAP IK Osakioduwa returns for his sixth stint as host of the show and as usual expect to taunt, tease, comfort and dance with the housemates on the Big Brother stage.
The housemates will compete for a massive prize pot of $300 000.
