Why was Angola not part of BBA 9? Why was it replaced by Rwanda?

Africa is a diverse and growing market and we are experiencing subscriber growth in new markets all the time. Rwanda has been identified as one of those key markets and with Angola having its first dedicated Big Brother Angola show which started on May 25, 2014, the business took a decision to include Rwanda.

Why was my country not included in BBA 9? What are the qualifications to make a country part of the show?

Big Brother Africa season 9 2014 included 13 countries (Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.).

The countries were selected to participate in the series based on the popularity of the series format in those markets, as well as the large DStv subscriber bases established in these markets.

AfricaMagic greatly appreciates the support that the series receives in other markets and so will work to include those markets into the show in other ways, outside of having a housemate in the house. This means that audiences from across the continent can vote on the series, and that performers and special guests from their countries may be included in the series.

Big Brother has enjoyed a wide popularity across the continent and AfricaMagic is pleased that it draws support from Africans across borders and outside of the nationalities represented. This serves to highlight that Africans support other Africans regardless of where they live or what their nationality is.

Who were the ex-housemates that returned in BBA 9?

On Day 42 of Big Brother Africa season 9 (Hotshots), another twist was added. 10 former housemates returned to compete against the current housemates. Each ex-housemate was from a country that was still competing in the game. The current housemates had to compete to impress Africa to keep them. If the housemate was not good enough for the fans, then that ex-housemate would replace him/her.

However, this was a prank that Big Brother played to the housemates to see how they would cope against their competition. The ex-housemates were not competing for the money, but were sent by Big Brother to cause havoc in the house.

The exes left on Day 49 and they were:

1. Peo/Miss P - Botswana, from season 6.

2. Elikem - Ghana, from season 8.

3. Natasha - Malawi, from season 8.

4. Leonel - Mozambique, from season 4.

5. Uti - Nigeria, from season 3 and season 5.

6. Luclay - South Africa, from season 6.

7. Feza - Tanzania, from season 8.

8. Denzel - Uganda, from season 8.

10. Vimbai - Zimbabwe, from season 6.
