M-Net cancels Big Brother Africa
M-Net and Endemol Shine Africa’s Big Brother Africa on DStv has been canceled for 2015 apparently due to cash constraints and failure to find sponsors.
Last year, the 9th season of Big Brother Africa was postponed by a month after a devastating fire swept through the Studios complex resulting into the massive losses.
Endemol Shine Africa refused to disclose the cause of the fire as the production moved to another house.
Sudden dramatic changes to South African visa regulations as well as Ebola fears also saw the chosen Ghanaian contestants dumped from the show. Contestants from Sierra Leone and Rwanda were also eliminated before entering the house.
BIGGEST REALITY TV SHOW
This is not good news for viewers of the biggest reality TV show in Africa. Kenya has been represented in all the 9 seasons, although no Kenyan has ever won.
Rapper CMB Prezzo (Jackson Makini) made a good presentation for Kenya in Season 7 finishing second overall. In Season 8 Kenya was represented by fashion designer Annabel and socialite Huddah.
Huddah was such a controversial contestant that she was even mentioned in a parliamentary discussion.
Big Brother continues to captivate audiences in each market in which it is broadcasted, M-Net wish to thank Big Brother Africa fans for their continuous support and assure them that in the future further announcements will be made.
