BBA 2014 Postponed To September

Big Brother Africa (BBA) 2014 has been moved to September to accommodate the 2014 FIFA World Cup which kicks off in Brazil next month, on June 12.

Liz Dziva, Multichoice Zimbabwe's public relations and publicity manager, said that organisers of Africa's most popular reality show would announce audition dates in due course.

"There will be a delay in this year's season of Big Brother Africa as we do not want it to clash with the World Cup."

"The two are big events so we decided to move the show (BBA) to September. The proper date will be released later. Holding it at the same time as the World Cup will affect viewership," Dziva told Zimbabwe DailyNews.

Big Brother Africa is a reality show that brings in individuals from different African countries including Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

BBA has proved to be a fertile ground for lasting friendships. Apart from Big Brother The Chase 2013 contestants Pokello and Elikem who got engaged last weekend, several other relationships which started on the reality have blossomed beyond BBA. These include Nigerian Kevin Chuwang Pam and Tanzanian Elizabeth Gupta (Big Brother Revolution 2009) plus Namibian Meryl Shikwambane and Tanzanian Mwisho Mwampamba (Big Brother All Stars 2010).
