Mzansi Magic, MultiChoice’s South African TV network, has announced the return of the classic reality television show “Big Brother Africa” after a seven-year hiatus.
The show is scheduled to premiere in 2022.
According to new reports, casting for the show, dubbed “Big Brother Mzansi,” has begun in earnest. The show is produced by Randburg-based Red Pepper Pictures, the same company that produces the BBNaija edition of the show.
M-Executive Net’s Head of Programming, Nomsa Philiso, confirmed the upcoming reality show, saying, “This year marks 20 years since the very first Big Brother on MultiChoice’s M-Net and we are excited to celebrate this milestone by commissioning a new Big Brother season, which will be housed under our Mzansi Magic stable.”
“This is a show that has always delivered top ratings and entertainment value, and our viewers and advertising partners can look forward to a stellar season of Big Brother.”
Big Brother Africa’s final season aired in 2015, with Ace Khumalo and Ntombi Tshabalala emerging as winners.
Prior to its break, the show, which was hosted in South Africa, featured contestants from 12 African countries, including Nigeria, and saw the rise to fame of a number of well-known African media personalities.
