The season seven of Big Brother Africa, one of Africa’s biggest TV shows, will start in May 2012, officials at M-Net have said January 4, 2012.
The early announcement of the new season, according to M-Net, is to enable people who are interested in participating to “start thinking about whether they want to take this incredible journey.”
“So says M-Net who kicked off 2012 with the news that the seventh season of the continent’s attention-grabbing Big Brother Africa series will be hitting DStv screens in May!,” said M-Net on its website without giving the exact date for the start of the show.
Details of the new season are to be revealed shortly but M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi says 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.
“…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!” Alabi added.
The last edition of the show, co-won by Nigeria’s Karen Igho and Wendall Robert Parson of Zimbabwe, saw for the first time two Ghanaians – Confidence Haugen and Alex Biney in the Big Brother House.
Big Brother Africa is produced for M-Net by Endemol South Africa and is seen, live 24/7, in 47 African countries only on DStv.
