Big Brother Africa auditions for July

The ninth edition of Africa’s biggest reality series, Big Brother Africa, kicks off in September.

To dispel earlier gossip that countries would be represented by people who had participated before, the organisers came out to clear the air, saying there would be new faces, and now fresh auditions are here. Uganda auditions will take place on July 7 and 8, at Kampala Sheraton hotel.

Unlike in previous years, this year’s entry process is slightly different, as potential housemates are invited to come in their numbers for auditions in their respective country venues. Entry is restricted to persons over the age of 21, who are citizens of one of the participating countries and have a valid passport.

If you are open-minded, bold and adventurous, that is even better. Previous editions of BBA have offered huge cash prizes to winners, and it is no different this time round as the prize money is $300,000.

Africa Magic, under DStv, has been associated with unearthing, nurturing and recognising talent from around the continent. And Big Brother Africa is one of the shows that have become famous for transforming ordinary citizens into stars. Gaetano Kaggwa is one of Uganda’s most successful representatives and his fortunes changed after he represented the country in the first season of BBA.

“We hope the season will be even better as we strive to improve on our offering season after season. We will not hold back on the quality and exciting unpredictability that has become synonymous with Big Brother Africa,”reads a statement from the organisers.

“Audiences and fans can expect yet another high quality production, and of course, another group of fun-loving housemates who will keep you guessing on who will be left standing come day 91.”

The reality TV show will be screened live 24/7 on DStv channels 197 and 198, while GOtv audiences will see highlights of the show, which begins on Sunday September 7 and is scheduled to run for 91 days.
