The long awaited launch of the Big Brother Africa 2014 has been postponed due to a massive fire that engulfed the house in Johannesburg. The house is located at the Sesani Studios.
No one was injured in the blaze and the cause of the fire is not yet known.
A statement from M-Net read: “M-Net and Endemol SA advise that due to a devastating fire at the Big Brother house on 2 September 2014, Big Brother Hotshots will not launch this Sunday (7 September) as scheduled. The cause of the fire at this stage is unknown and investigations will commence as soon as it is safe to do so.
“At this stage M-Net and Endemol are urgently looking for an alternative Big Brother house in which to film the production, however as this production has highly technical infrastructure, camera and edit requirements an alternative is not immediately available. Every effort will be made to find a solution as quickly as possible to ensure that Africa’s biggest reality show will continue.”
Malawi was amongst countries that were expected to send a housemate to the reality show.
