who will the new housemates be? Who will find their name and their faces gracing newspapers, their profiles loaded to websites and blogs? Who will become the subject of drive time radio and just who will find themselves heating up the Twitter-sphere?
At this time there is no way to know this but if you meet the entry requirements and enter between now and Valentine’s Day on February 14, you may well be among the superstars in waiting and may find yourself flirting with fame and fortune!
This year, entry is open to the same 14 countries as the year before with the only exception being Liberia which will be replaced by Ethiopia for this year. The replacement comes as AfricaMagic and series producers Endemol SA rotate certain countries into and out of the format. The reason for this is to ensure that a wide range of countries can be included in different editions of the series.
As a result of the change, participating countries this year are: Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Entry is open to all those persons over the age of 21, who are citizens of one of the participating countries and who either have a valid passport or will be able to obtain one by the end of March. Producers are looking for persons who are fluent in English, entertaining and passionate about the Big Brother experience. Of particular importance to the selection team are the qualities of tolerance, determination and enthusiasm. If you are open-minded, bold and adventurous, that’s even better!
Entry forms are available immediately at www.africamagic.tv/bigbrother so visit the website and complete the online submission form. Printed entry forms will also be available at MultiChoice offices in the participating countries from February 1, 2013. (more…)
Having recently celebrated its’ 9th birthday, AfricaMagic is heading into 2013 determined that its 10th year on air is going to be one that no viewer ever forgets! In addition to its first ever AfricaMagic Viewers Choice Awards which it is creating in association with MultiChoice, AfricaMagic today confirmed that it will also screen a new season of the hit reality super-series BIG BROTHER AFRICA.
Exactly a decade after Africa pioneered the world’s first-ever continental BIG BROTHER, the show will return to DStv and GOtv screens next year with more of the must-watch entertainment, drama and excitement that it’s famous for. And once again, there is a secret twist that producers have worked on to ensure that the new season will capture audience attention once more!
“The demand from audiences for BIG BROTHER AFRICA continues undimmed. In some ways it really is astonishing to see the enthusiasm for this particular series, but in other ways it is to be expected,” says M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi.
“Viewers want to see unscripted television, as it happens, with normal people that they can relate to dealing with completely familiar emotional concepts – happiness, frustration, success, failure, hope, anxiety, friendship, opportunity and of course, love. Big Brother continues to be a ratings sensation from Australia to India, and in Africa, for exactly this reason. And the format’s flexibility is a producers dream because you can do something different every time!”
Given her comments it’s easy to understand why, when questioned about whether the new season will be fresh, fun entertainment, producers Endemol SA are confident of another successful edition. (more…)
I saw this Bikini photo of former Big Brother Africa winner-Karen Igho and I said to myself, Ghana is blessed with decent celebrities…LOL
For some weird reason, I have always found something ‘Not Being Right’ about this chick and this photo even makes it worse. Maybe those not well fixed boobies covered with those tattoos are those haunting me…
Former Ghanaian rep of the Big Brother Stargame, DKB would be returning to South Africa to witness the grand finale of the reality TV show which ends on Sunday, August 5 with the awarding of the coveted $300,000 to the best housemate.
He would be reuniting with former housemates and also reconciling with the former Sierra Leonean rep Zainab, with whom he had a violence scandal that ended in their disqualification on June 4th, 29 days into the show.
He intends to use this platform to promote his upcoming mega show dubbed “DKB n FRENDZ” which is a comedy and music show and also his “Anti-gender violence campaign” he has embarked on preaching against violence and provocations in schools. He promises to have fun with all his fans across Africa online with “juice” a name he fondly used for gossiping during his stay in the house, on his official:

Five of Africa’s hottest musicians are set to take to the stage for the star-studded finale of AfricaMagic’s ultra-popular BIG BROTHER STARGAME in which one housemate will walk away USD 300 000 richer!

Ghana may not have a Big Brother Stargame representative in the house, but this weekend the country will be represented in the show that is known to be one of the most watched reality program across the continent.
On the 4th of August 2012, the Big Brother house will come alive with incredible tunes when Ghana’s DJ Champagne storms the house to work the turntables at the housemates Saturday night party. DJ Champagne will also be playing on stage at the Big Brother Finale show the next day, 5th August 2012, and also at the after party on the same evening.
Since 2009, DJ Champagne has been the disc jockey for the YFM drive time show; “Dryve Of Ur Life”. Apart from the weekday show, the multitalented DJ also plays on YFM’s hugely popular Saturday afternoon student related program known as “Y – Xpress”. Nicknamed the music connoisseur, DJ Champagne has played at several big concerts and high profile parties in Ghana.
With a few days to the finale of the Big Brother StarGame, it remains unclear who is likely to win the ultimate prize of a USD 300,000. There are six housemates remaining in the house and these have only 6 days to prove to Africa that they deserve her precious votes. However, the house has seen the strength of Kyle, Lady May, Wati and Prezzo because they have been nominated and survived the chopping block before in Upville. But the greatest challenge could perhaps be for the rest of the gang who have never been exposed to an eviction. The two times that Keagan was nominated managed to save his head courtesy of the Head of House position while Talia has had a lucky streak in Upville, the Zambian lass has never made it to the nomination list and has also never been replaced by a Head of House.
Well, the ball is in Africa’s hands at the moment and housemates have to play their part in order to impress Africa.
Tune in to DStv Channel 197 & 198 24/7 to catch DJ Champagne and the Big Brother StarGame finale action, powered by Coca Cola. And keep voting.
Mmmh… we wonder if Barbz and Keitta had their significant others in mind as the model planted a smooch on the Ghanaian’s neck.
Since moving to Upville Keitta has repeatedlyprofessed his love for Mildred even sharing with Big Brother just how heartbroken he is over their separation. As for Barbz the South African celeb has insisted that she has a man at home and is not sexually attracted to Keitta.
But for two people that are so committed to their partners the pair sure does seem to be getting extra ‘comfortable’ around each other. Just a few days before this kissing incident Upville’s newest Housemate grabbed Barbz in the kitchen and gave her a lengthy massage which she called “a pleasant kind of pain.”
Is this kind of behaviour appropriate for people who are “just friends?” We wonder what Mildred thinks of all this as the exited Housemate watches her man getting touchy feely with another woman. Do you think there something brewing between Barbz and Keitta?

During Nominations on Monday, Mampi put DKB on the chopping block, complaining that he has grown a big head and a massive ego since he became Head of House.
In the early hours of this morning, DKB, Goldie, Prezzo and Roki gathered in the kitchen for a little conversation while their fellow Housemates slept. DKB expressed how unhappy he was when Big Brother chastised him for telling his clique who he Nominated.
It would seem DKB told Roki, Prezzo and Goldie earlier in the day that he saved himself and put Lady May up for possible Eviction, thus contravening Big Brother’s Nomination rules. DKB seemed flabbergasted that Big Brother had the audacity to tackle him on this issue.
We think DKB might be forgetting that this is Big Brother’s House and not his. It will be interesting how he copes next week considering that on Monday, Upville will have a new Head of House. (more…)
