The seventh season of the continent’s attention-grabbing Big Brother Africa series will be hitting DStv screens in May, M-Net announced on Wednesday
According to the pan-African TV network, the reality show will once again be refreshed by Coca-Cola.
The series executives say viewers will once again get set for drama, action and entertainment with twists and turns galore!
“This show is definitely a high demand property that draws and holds audiences from start to finish,” explains M-Net Africa managing director Biola Alabi. “While the basics are the same, every season is different from the last. Re-invention is crucial so I am very pleased to confirm that this year we’re doing something that has never been done before in the history of Big Brother Africa!”
She continues, “Big Brother Africa remains relevant because it constantly surprises audiences with everything from two houses, more housemates, unexpected guests and new participating countries to unveiling two winners, an All Star reunion, super star performers and the list goes on. So to be able to say that we’re doing something that has never been done before in Big Brother Africa is wonderful. And we really believe it’s what our audiences want to see next!”
Format owner and producer Endemol South Africa’s MD Sivan Pillay says, “We look forward to surprising and entertaining Africa’s viewers with more twists and turns that have seen this compelling format continue to succeed on the continent as it has around the world.Ã‚Â M-Net has established a highly engaging continental audience for the Big Brother brand.”
With more details of the new season to be revealed shortly, there is one secret M-Net is opening up about already. “At the end of 91 days, while many housemates will walk away with fame and the experience of a lifetime, there will be only one winner. So this season, the winner takes all,” says Alabi.
Malawi was represented by DJ Lomwe (Tendai Namate) and Susan Ngoma last year. Other former housemates are Code Sangala, Mzamose Chibambo, Zein Dudha and Hazel Warren.Ã¢â‚¬â€M-net
