Ugandan Musician Allan Toniks Rejected by Big Brother Africa.


Singer Allan Toniks is sad and blue, as we speak, following his Big Brother Africa rejection. The singer who is known for Mba Nkumissinga song couldn’t believe it when he found out that he had been scrapped off the list of celebrities who will be gracing Big Brother Hot Shots this year. The show which starts in two weeks’ time will have two Ugandan representatives in the house.

Toniks who was sure of a place in the house had notified friends, family and even his landlord that he would not be around for next four years since he was going to be in South Africa.

Time came for the finalists to fly to South Africa for the final photos shoot which they did, Toniks kept languishing in town depressed and unhappy.

As has been the Big Brother tradition for years, housemates cannot be revealed until the launch night which is 7th September. Toniks rushed things and let the whole world know hence spoiling things for himself and getting the boot.

M-Net has confirmed that the 9th season of #BBA will be called Big Brother Africa: HOTSHOTS. The House mates, like BBA Amplified, BBA Stargame & BBA The Chase will stay in 2 separate houses. The producers said; “This season’s House mates have hidden talents, they adore the spotlight and will let nothing stand in their way of claiming fame & fortune.”

The show starts on 7 September, lasting 91 days, with the Final on 7 December 2014. It will again by hosted by Nigerian star IK Osakioduwa for the sixth time in a row.


Big Brother Africa Denies Leaving Ghana's Contestants Out Over Ebola But Visas


The Big Brother Africa Production has denied reports that Ghana contestants have been dumped due to the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa but because of South Africa’s new visa regulations.

Endemol South Africa has denied reports that Ghana contestants have been dumped due to the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa but because of South Africa’s new visa regulations.

Endemol South Africa has revealed the country has introduced more restrictive and highly controversial new visa regulations are so Ghana contestants will not be able to get the contestants in South Africa on time and for them to remain long enough.

“They have not been rejected by MultiChoice Africa or Endemol due to the Ebola scare,” Endemol South Africa said in a statement.

“They had to take the necessary measures to ensure Ghana is represented in Big Brother Africa IX and does not miss out of the show,” read the statement.

Endemol South Africa is producing the 9th season of Big Brother Africa set to start on 7 September and will be filmed in Johannesburg.

However, Big Brother Africa has already searched for Ghana contestants in South Africa to put in the house before the 9th season.

“The production company had no option but to find alternative Ghanaian candidates to audition in South Africa, as they could not hold up the process that lead up to the show,” Endemol said.

Apparently the Ghana contestants did apply for visas for South Africa for the final stage of auditioning but their visas were not processed in time. There were also delays with the contestants producing additional documents such as bank statements.

Then the contestants from the West African country were only given visas for a maximum stay of 30 days in South Africa. However, two of them might be the final contestants left on the 91 day reality show, meaning that they needed a visa extension or special permit.

If they do want to stay longer in South Africa the controversial new visa regulations require that application to be made in Ghana. These extensions for a stay in South Africa can no longer be made in South Africa under the new visa regulations.
