WHILE speculation on who will represent Uganda in the ninth season of Big Brother Africa continues, AfricaMagic has revealed the season’s theme: Hotshots.


To that effect, Big Brother Hotshots will kick of next month on September 7, with renowned Nigerian TV personality IK Osakioduwa returning for his 6th stint as host.


Housemates will be competing for a jackpot of $300, 000, to be taken home by the last man standing after 91 days.


Once again, total strangers selected from across Africa will be sharing living space under a complete lack of privacy, while cameras and microphones relay to DStv audiences whatever they get up to.


The housemates will be selected from 14 African Countries: Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Zambia, Malawi, Nigeria, Ghana, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Namibia, Sierra Leone and South Africa, the host. 


As they backstab one another in an attempt to beat competition and evade eviction all the way, viewers will also be playing their own game – voting to either keep, or eliminate a housemate.


Although it is the same concept, the producers, Endemol South Africa, say this season has more twists than seen before.


According to Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, the M-Net Africa regional director for West Africa, this season’s housemates have hidden talents, adore the spotlight, and will let nothing stand in the way of their pursuit of fame and fortune.


“Viewers will be in for almost as many surprises as the housemates. We work hard to make each season of   Big Brother Africa bigger than the last; and we have really upped the ante this year,” says Mba-Uzoukwu, adding that a uniquely African glamour is at the centre-front of it all.


Before the twists kick in, the housemates will start the game in two glamorous houses, built with fun and mischief in mind.


Also to look out for this season will be celebrity guests and brain-racking tasks presented to housemates. 


To be screened 24 hours daily on DStv channels 197 and 198, the reality TV show’s launch will kick off at 8:00pm on September 7 on the said channels. Also, daily highlights will be available on GOtv.
