On 01 September, M-Net’s AfricaMagic and series producers Endemol SA released a statement confirming that Sierra Leone and Rwanda will no longer form part of the countries participating in this year’s edition of Big Brother Africa, which was to launch on Sunday 7 September 2014. This was due to schedules and logistical constraints yet they had insufficient time to follow the necessary procedures in order to process the required travel documentation which became a more complex procedure.
Fortunately or Unfortunately(For the two countries and Endemol SA respectively), the show was not launched due to the devastating fire that saw the Big Brother house destroyed. For couple of days after the by then launch date, viewers across Africa were asking the exact date on which the show was to premier.
Thank God that it’s now confirmed and come 5 October, the much awaited eye candy show will hit the airwaves, but the question is; “ Will Biggie now reconsider Rwanda And Sierra Leone for the edition given that they have had ample time of a full month which could be sufficient to process the contestants’ travel documents?” SEE MORE ON PAGE2
