Waiting for Big Brother Africa housemates

Suspense is in the air again as the 2013 edition of Big Brother Africa will be inaugurated on Sunday. As usual, it will be another season of adventure, sensation, entertainment and, possibly, tongue wagging.
While the artistes who will grace the launch have, however, been decided, the housemates have not been unveiled to the public. Since the reality show has a way of drawing participants from various African countries, most nationals now eagerly look forward to knowing their nations‘ representatives. The role played by the late Goldie last year, which kept many Nigerians on the edge of their wits, is an example of how compatriots get connected with whoever is‚ representing‘ their country. Unfortunately, Goldie did not live long enough to explore the post-BBA experience in different ways.
To usher in about 28 housemates to the show are award-winning musicians from Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa. These include Don Jazzy, D’Prince and Wande Coal. But a statement from the organisers indicate that Kenya’s ATL and South Africa’s leading afro pop music groups, Mafikizolo, will also serenade audiences.
With IK Osakioduwa as host, the line-up will also include a slot for some comic relief from Kenyan stand-up comedian Daniel Ndambuki, popularly known as Churchill. The highly talented entertainer has also become a household name with his TV show called “Churchill Live”.
In another statement from MultiChoice Nigeria Head of Media Realtions, Mr. Segun Fayose, GoTv is also set for the programme, which will be screened live on both AfricaMagic World and AfricaMagic.
