All The Money I Won At BBA Is OVER – Idris Sultan

On Sunday, December 7, 2014, Tanzania's Idris Sultan was announced the winner of Big Brother Africa season 9 tagged 'Hotshots', taking home a cool USD300,000. The money is already over!

$300,000 is a lot of money to get finished in just 15 months. But Wema Sepetu's boyfriend says he has spent all the money he won at BBA.

Speaking on East Africa TV's Friday Night Live, Idris revealed that he had invested all the money in different projects.

"Pesa yote milioni 500 niliyoipata kwenye Big Brother Africa imeisha!! Imeisha kwa sababu ya investment, nimeinvest sana", Idris was quoted as saying (All the money, 500 million TZS, I won at BBA is over. It's over because I have invested a lot.)

The BBA winner announced that he is hoping to launch his TV programs to be aired on BET Africa and Vuzu TV, later this year.

2016 Big Brother Africa Show Cancelled

2016 Big Brother Africa Show Cancelled


Leading continental reality TV show Big Brother Africa has been cancelled for the second year running, organisers have confirmed.

With the show not happening last year, it was expected to hit the screens this year.

However, according to M-Net, the acclaimed reality show is not taking place as it is undergoing an evaluation process.

"M-Net would like to confirm that Big Brother Africa is not part of our upcoming programming schedule."

M-Net indicated that they are currently busy with other regional Big Brother productions, with Big Brother Angola being the most current production which started on March 13 and would end on May 22, 2016.

"At the moment, the team is busy re-evaluating the strategic direction of Big Brother Africa. Be assured that when it returns, it will be bigger and better," reads the statement from M-Net.

It 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."

In 2014, BBA Hotshots which was season 9 of the reality show, was postponed by a month after a fire swept through the Sasani Studios complex in Johannesburg, the seat of the Big Brother Africa house.

Then, last year, the show was also officially put on hold by the producers, M-Net and Endemol.

Kyle: My Big Brother Africa Journey Episode 7

Kyle: My Big Brother Africa Journey Episode 7




Early morning on Saturday, we had our last word from Biggie through a letter he wrote to us through one of his guys called MK. It pretty much told us not to expect much but to get ready and vacate the hotel within an hour.




Early morning on Saturday, we had our last word from Biggie through a letter he wrote to us through one of his guys called MK.

It pretty much told us not to expect much but to get ready and vacate the hotel within an hour. That is how Big Brother works, he just bombards you when you least expect it and you must only abide. No other options!

We hurriedly packed our stuff as I planned to see how I was going to pull off a last move and see Stella my friend. None of that happened. Even my phone was still illegal to handle until I set foot on the plane back to Kampala.

I badly wanted to call Nigel and tell him to get in touch with Stella but nah; I wasn't allowed to make any calls. Come On, even a prisoner is allowed a phone call, how about a mini-VIP like me? Clearly, I felt worse than a petty thief being hurled on a merry go round. It was very disturbing and the only thing I wanted was to get back home. I was already sick of the weather so full of shit.

Honestly, at that moment I wasn't thinking of the turbulence ahead since it was a very bad weather day, I just wanted to leave Joburg immediately. My flight was at 14:00 hrs and I was even glad I got to the airport by 12:00 hrs.

That way I didn't have to put up with this mean-not-so-pretty-Zulu woman. By 7 pm Ugandan time, I was in Entebbe. I slept three quarters of the flight as I drunk the other quarter.

The boys picked me from the airport and we went straight to Panamera where I met a girl that later became my good luck charm.

So we are at Panamera and this girl walks in and of course my drooling eyes could not miss that moment for nothing. Crushes are a very normal occurrence but this wasn't just a crush. This was an apparition! I will keep her name discreet because I might not wake up tomorrow. I might be tied onto my bed for the rest of the week actually. Let your mind wander about all the possibilities!

Nigel had declined to come with us to Panamera and for some reason I kept this girl away from him. This girl was a nymphomaniac! Oh the days of our lives! And no, I am not talking soapy things if you know what I mean.

Things of girls can be inexplicable most a time but anyway back to the gist of this chapter, only eleven days later, I was watching Max Forster and Monita Rajpaal on CNN that morning as I have made that a habit. I watch so much news you might think Bbale Francis was my dad.

The call came in. The call I never expected.

The call came in! That Janette and I had been selected as the final couple to represent Uganda on the Big Brother Stargame stage for the next three months. You see a feeling like that is inexplicable.

Something you never expected and never really wildly imagined happens and you try to find words to thank God but you can't quite put a finger to those particular lines. It is times like these that make you forever grateful to the maker and make you want to start going to church daily.

I just might go all day trying to explain that feeling but I will save you the hogwash.

Now let us talk business, shall we? I got the news at about 8 am on a chilly Thursday morning as I prepared to go do my TV Show 'Skizzy' at Urban Television. After the show, I couldn't wait to go tell my workmates Mariat Nasasira and Sheila Sempebwa.

I remember that day was super weird as I could tell how excited and the girls were. Mariat was elated to the moon for me and this is one of the reasons this girl will be my friend until death does us part. Now, those might sound like vows at the altar but don't read much into it. But you can as well interpret it your way because you are entitled to your own mind.

That same evening Mary Luswata was with us inside the studio and I remember her asking me 'Kyle, why do you have a weird enthusiasm about you today?' I just told her I had got someone pregnant.

I was so lucky she hadn't started her monstrous Scoop on Scoop show otherwise it would be a whole different story. I left the girls after entrusting them with the news and making them swear never to blow my cover, at least until the day of the show.

After that, I went straight to my boss, James Serunkuuma, now Bukedde TV Manager and told him the news because, of course, I wanted a pay rise upon my return. Oh how young minds work!

He and I also had our cordial friendship that still holds strong by the way. Sometimes I wish he was a bit younger and we would probably be puffing on a joint or sipping a pint together but alas!

From there I confided in Robert Semakula, my show producer at the time and I had never seen that pint-sized Negro that happy. He promised to make it a big deal after I had entered the house, which promise he kept.

He even did an interview of me which he kept till the day of the launch and he used it as a lead on the Urban TV news. I love this Negro. No homo. He is simply one guy I love working with. You see if you have a show producer who doesn't feel your energy and respecting your hustle, the show will fail.

Skizzy has survived through thick and thin because it had a good foundation and I am proud to have been the one to name that show. Vision Group should pay me some loyalties, actually. It is my legacy!

Robert convinced me to go tell the CEO Robert Kabushenga about it because he was one of our biggest fans at Skizzy. He watched Skizzy everyday in his office and he was proud of us. Whenever we had problems with one of the editors or stand-in producer, we would always run to him and he always found a way to calm us down. We were just kids and he just knows how to handle you and you leave all smiley under. He is a freaking genius!

So I gathered my strength, all elated of course and headed for his office. At the time, he had a very mean Personal Assistant. I never liked her and she knew it. She made me wait for about 30 minutes but ultimately the boss allowed to see me.

I gave him the news and to be honest I had never seen him happier. He gave me $500 in cash to go shopping. That meant the world to me. I still look up to Mr. Robert Kabushenga and probably forever will.

I went straight downtown with a friend of mine called Gilbert Kidimu, a writer at The New Vision who up to now is still my fashion hero. Dude helped me shop a few warm things and there I was. Set.

When I delivered the news to Nigel, for a moment I was glad he wasn't going to Sarah’s hostel that night. He opted to stay with me and of course with our other musketeer Agaba. As we boarded a taxi to Kireka, Nigel couldn't stop talking about it and I honestly felt nice about this for it was our achievement- The Three Musketeers. Nigel is probably responsible for my getting in because he briefed me really well before the auditions which really built my confidence over time.

It had started sinking in. I was going to be on the Big Brother Show!

Kyle: My Big Brother Africa journey Part 5


Kyle: My Big Brother Africa journey Part 5




The air smelt different as we drove from tunnel to tunnel. It was pure bliss!




Straight from OR Tambo International Airport on a very cold winter Monday morning, we were ushered into the elegant G-Wagon Mercedes and it had never felt homelier for me.

It felt heavenly; you could not even feel the tarmac. Anyhow, I was used to the bumpy rides on the dusty Kireka streets so how would I even expect potholes in Mzansi? So naive of me you could say. I made sure my bags were fastened as I had heard that Johannesburg is a crime hub and at that moment I couldn't afford losing any of my possessions.

Mind you in my bags, I had carried some food stuffs, inclusive of Matooke for my friend Stella who lived in East Gate Johannesburg and I was all excited to see her as she had been my guide way before I saw the real South Africa.

Immediately as we exited the airport, I saw a whole new world; Development, and straight I remembered Mama Umar in Kireka who sold Mukene and tomatoes just next to my former gate. The difference is shockingly crisp. It is the first world country I was ushered into. The roads were as large as the width of River Nile and I could not believe my eyes. Talk of the planned housing by the road as you drive swiftly towards East Gate, breath taking, only made me wonder when Jennifer Musisi will ever achieve the like.

The imagination was farfetched and you can imagine I had not seen Cape Town yet. Thank God I wasn't headed to Cape Town because I was going to shed a tear. Cape Town is not meant to be in Africa, a common would argue.

The air smelt different as we drove from tunnel to tunnel. It was pure bliss! When we reached Sandton, the chaperone went for a quick fix at a PickNpay supermarket and yes, that's when I felt myself in a foreign country. When you are used to Game, Nakumatt and Garden City and then you enter a PickNpay mall. That is when you feel like you will never return to Uganda. As the driver packed for a while I thought of calling Nigel and Agaba to tell them of what I had seen. I felt so local at that moment. Truth be told though, wasn't I local?

Our chaperone hoped back into our Mercedes and off we drove straight to the Hilton Hotel in Sandton, a neighbourhood that is not meant for broke people. The whole Rivonia stretch literally got me gawking! At the hotel, I could see couples moving to the hotel and I figured some of these were the contestants we were going to battle the next day to earn a real qualification inside the Big Brother House.

We checked in and were guided by a weird talking coloured man to the 6th Floor. If it is your first time meeting with a coloured South African, you will not hear 80% of what they will say to you. I didn’t hear crap of what he said most of the times; I just kept smiling as if I had understood what he was blubbering about. One thing I noticed was he was happy to see me.

I could literally see the whole of Rivonia Street and pretty much the rest of Sandton once I entered my hotel room. I had only seen a McDonald's store in movies, this time I could see it with my own eyes and I couldn't wait to go grab a cheese burger and some flies. Janette and I were incarcerated in one room with two beds for the next five days...............

It was so cold on that Monday evening that I couldn't feel my feet and I kept thinking, well, there is a girl in my hotel room and I can't even do anything with her. She is a good looking petite girl but I somehow can't see myself advancing. You get that feeling, right? The one of I see her as my little sister, yeah that one. So I thought of a very weird way of convincing her to come to my bed so we warm each other up, just for just. Nothing sexual!

Now I know this sounds weird to you all perverted minds but nothing could EVER happen between Jannette and I. I thought about it for a while and when I made my mind to call her to my bed, she was snoring like a she-goat. I retreated to my bed and switched the heat in the room up. I slept off in peace until one of Biggie's guys called KK came to pick us for lunch and gave me 2000 Rands for pocket money for the day.

It was a lot of money for one day. Who gives you 600K Uganda Shillings for pocket money in a day? For the first time I felt like I was destined to be rich, which I am actually still working on by the way. It has been tough so far.

KK called our chaperon (driver) and in a few minutes, we drove to McDonalds and later KFC because Jannette was inseparable with her chicken. We were only supposed to be out of the hotel for one hour every day. All the other hours we had to stay indoors or else be disqualified. Fortunately, we had a TV which only showed SABC Channels and M-Net Movies, so I had no choice but to watch 'Isidingo' , Scandal and Rhythm City for a week. Excruciating I tell you!

The unexpected happened a few moments later!

Kyle: My Big Brother Africa Journey Part 4


Kyle: My Big Brother Africa Journey Part 4




Of course it was weird for me too, even if I was convinced I was going to be gone for just a week and that would be it for Big Brother.



Kyle Duncan Kushaba



In the wake of the good news, the idea of Tumukunde being stolen sort of subsided, at least in my head as I had to chase paperwork for my flight to Johannesburg. The boys were excited for me and I remember that week they became weirdly nice to me (As if I was going to die, mschewww). They really must have felt like damn, we might not breathe the same oxygen with this dickhead for a while after all.

Of course it was weird for me too, even if I was convinced I was going to be gone for just a week and that would be it for Big Brother. They did not feel the same way. Nigel has a way of making you feel like you can do anything. Very good guy that ignoramus!

I got my plane ticket on a Thursday morning and for the first time it felt real, tangible enough I could taste it. My Visa was ready by Friday and boom, my passport had a stamp in it. That weekend we spent it at Cineplex. Perks of being a society journalist. Somehow we got a ride on Sunday night and by 4am I checked in!

Time check 03:45hrs, I was at Entebbe Airport , just 15 minutes to check in time and I felt a whole new warmth upon my face and I didn't feel any bad about it only that I was a bit terrified by how a plane is going to fly us to Johannesburg in a short space of 4 hours. The thought of that alone made my heart palpitate. The first time is always scary but I had my God to lie back on and I was sure we were going to reach safely.

To be honest, I had never prayed that hard and long to the Almighty. But come on, it was my first time and I was scared shitless. The lady on the microphone called for a South African Airways Check in and Jannette grew goose bumps all over which definitely rubbed off me by osmosis. We got checked and cleared in less than 10 minutes as we were ushered in the waiting lounge.

Another sweet sounding lady mentioned a couple hours later that each one of us had to make sure we had our boarding passes ready as the aircraft was ready and embarking. A few minutes later, I smelt the air inside the airplane and I had never been prouder! It was an epic moment. I was on a plane. Amazing!

As I was chilling and savouring the moment, the plane started moving and it hit me, we were on our way! That moment when the plane is ascending is one of the worst moments for a first time flier. My Gosh! U feel like your heart is in your throat and somehow you want to throw it out but somehow you can't.

It gets worse if you look down and see how even higher you are going. I simply closed my eyes and prayed harder and before I knew it everything was normal. It took me about 30 minutes to settle my poor heart and left everything to the Lord our saviour. I even failed to swallow the tea that the pretty coloured big breasted woman brought to me. Jannette was gulping all sorts of drinks nonchalantly.

I couldn't quite figure what this pint sized woman was thinking. She was at home, I was burning! That journey was the most excruciating of my life because of thoughts I had about what could have happened in that space. I am lucky there was no turbulence. Now imagine if there was! Let's leave at that, shall we?

Time Check: 10:30am (CAT) and we were checking in at OR Tambo International Airport and I could not believe my eyes considering the kind of airport I had left back home. The airport huge, something Donald Trump would call ‘YUGE’ and the only thing I thought about was meeting its architect.

It is really humongous (Of course before you fly to Dubai). We sort of got lost after walking for almost 10 minutes to no avail since we didn't know where to head. In a few minutes, after following the rest of the passengers and reading the posts of course (At that time you really have to thank your parents for taking you to school), we finally got a common place where there are all sorts of people with placards written on names.

I manned up and put on a straight face as if I had flown before and looked through until I saw my name being hoisted up by a well kempt man wearing a grey suit. He noticed me, which really fascinated me but still I could not ask because I didn't want to look local.

I followed the guy with Jannette and we were ushed into a G-Wagon Mercedes Benz and off we drove out of the airport to the Hilton Hotel in Sandton......................You don’t want to know what happened next!- See more at: http://www.newvision.co.ug/new_vision/news/1422184/kyle-brother-africa-journey?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter#sthash.PJjLy3eE.dpuf
