Fans of Africa’s biggest reality show, Big Brother Africa, will no longer have to wait in anticipation until the launch on the 5th of October to meet the Big Brother hotshots.
In a bold and ground breaking move, M-Net and series producers Endemol SA will be delivering a new world first and unveiling the names of the participating housemates live on the official Big Brother website which launches at 14h00 CAT on Thursday 18 September.
Three Big Brother housemates will be introduced on a daily basis starting from the 18th September. This will be followed by regular updates on social media.
During the 8th season of Big Brother, over 6 million fans interacted with the show via the Website, Twitter, and Facebook, with the website generating just over 200 million impressions.
“We are breaking new ground and the website and social media are the perfect platforms to engage with the fans in real-time”, says M-Net Africa Regional Director (West Africa) Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu. “The show will go on, and both fans and housemates are in for some riveting television, coupled with all the drama, intrigue and heart-stopping twists that have long become synonymous with the reality show”.
The new and undoubtedly glamourous Big Brother house is in the process of being designed and fitted with cutting edge camera equipment and broadcast technology that makes the show unique in its format.
