Acclaimed Africa’s leading reality television show, Big Brother Africa, has been cancelled again for the second year running, organisers M-Net, have said.
On Big Brother Africa which was last held in 2014, organisers said they were still deliberating on the future of thats how.
In a statement M-Net said: “At the moment, the team are busy re-evaluating the strategic direction of Big Brother Africa.”
The statement further states: “We wish to thank Big Brother Africa fans far and wide for their continuous support over the past editions and promise that the show will go on, on DStv, with new and exciting productions in store from M-Net.”
Last year, BBA was not held as Endemol and M-Net failed to secure sponsorship for the show.
But it seems all hope is not lost as the organisers promised that when it eventually returns, the highly-demanded show would be bigger and better.
Malawi was represented at the last Big Brother Africa reality show – Hotshot – by Sipherile Chitambo alias Sipe and Mr 265.
Malawi reached the final stages of the Big Brother Africa reality show four times. However, it is only Hazel Warren who ended up as runner up.
The first show in 2003 saw Malawi perform dismally as its representative Zein Dudha, got the boot just three weeks into the game.
Other Malawian contestant who have gone to the show include Code Sangala, Felicia Ngoma, DJ Lomwe, Fatima Nkata, Natasha Ntonthela.
