Auditions for the 9th season of the Big Brother Africa TV early next month at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel, officials from Multichoice Africa have announced. 
 
Prospective participants in Africa’s largest reality show will attend auditions on July 7th and 8th.
The actual show will kick off on September 7th when housemates enter the Big Brother house, and after 90 days the last person standing will walk away with US$300,000 (sh750m).
 
Any citizen of the participating countries who is 21 years and above can audition in of the countries listed below.
 
Since the first Big Brother Africa in 2003, Uganda has had several representatives: Gaetano Kagwa (2003), Maureen Namatovu (2004), Morris Mugisha (2008), Hannington Kuteesa (2009 & 2010), Phil Okure (2009), Ernest Wasake (2011), Sharon O (2011), Kyle (2012), Janette Lutaaya (2012), Denzel (2013)a, and LK4 (2013)
 
The usual participating countries will take part, and will be joined by Ethiopia which was left out last year. This year Angola will not participate, and will be replaced by Rwanda, which is participating for the very first time.
 
“The inclusion of Rwanda in this season is even more exciting as this displays that our reach and growth into the various sub-Saharan markets is going from strength to strength,” said MultiChoice Africa CEO Nico Meyer. 
 
“We look forward to seeing further growth as well as the impressive social media presence that the show enjoys.”   
The countries are Ethiopia, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. 
 
Previous winners have come from Nigeria (3), Zambia, Namibia, Angola, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and South Africa.
