Big Brother Africa always gets people talking the shower hour, make-or- break relationships and the tension of being up for possible eviction.
This year’s edition dubbed Big Brother Africa Hotshots has even got more people talking, because just days to the show’s would-be premiere on September 7, Rwanda, who were debutants on the show, were scraped off the list, so was Sierra Leone, and to crown it all, the house burnt down.
There was doubt whether the show was going to happen at all. However, after a ‘rigorous’ search by producers, another house was identified in South Africa and now the show premiere has been confirmed for Sunday October 5, but that’s not all as far as Biggie is concerned.
This time round, producers have decided to water down Africa’s anxiety to meet the housemates at the premiere by unveiling at least three representatives from the different countries everyday through social media. By the time you read this, more than half of the housemates will have been unveiled. The best news is that we know the two housemates to represent Uganda.
Outgoing Miss Uganda, Stella Nantumbwe alias Ellah is one of the duo. She describes herself as charismatic, bitchy, outspoken, loving and sophisticated”.
She values honesty, charisma and joyfulness in others, but dislikes lies and fakeness. If she wins the grand prize, Nantumbwe will buy cars for her mum and invest the rest in real estate. Oh, she also promised the public a great shower hour daily!
The next revelation introduced us to Esther, a pint-sized student from Nsambya.
With a previous rumour that Uganda would be represented by a Nigerian, even these revelations are hard to believe many think the producers are playing the public with moles as they continue to keep the real housemates a secret. There’s also speculation that Rwanda’s long-awaited debut on the show may happen after all, now that the show was delayed.
Other revealed housemates include Botswana’s Goitse, Tanzania’s Idris, and Alusha from Kenya, among others. Pray it is not one of Big Brother’s elaborate pranks.
