After a seven-year sabbatical, Mzansi Magic, a multi-channel South African television network, has announced the return of the classic reality show ‘Big Brother Africa.’
According to latest rumors, casting for ‘Big Brother Mzansi,’ a show produced by Randburg-based Red Pepper Pictures, has begun in earnest (same producers of the Nigerian edition of the show).
M-Executive Net’s Head of Programming, Nomsa Philiso, confirmed the show’s upcoming premiere saying, “This year marks 20 years since the very first Big Brother on MultiChoice’s M-Net and we are excited to celebrate this milestone by commissioning a new Big Brother season, which will be housed under our Mzansi Magic stable.”
“This is a show that has always delivered top ratings and entertainment value, and our viewer and advertising partners can look forward to a stellar season of Big Brother.”
Ace Khumalo and Ntombi Tshabalala were the champions of the show’s final season, which aired in 2015.
Prior to its break, the show, which was hosted in South Africa, featured candidates from 12 African countries, including Nigeria, and saw a number of well-known media figures on the continent come to prominence.
