Breaking News: Fire Destroys Big Brother Africa House, Show Put On Hold

Share This

As you read this, the Big Brother Africa House at Sasani Studios in Johannesburg has been burnt to the ground. This unfortunate incident has forced organizers of the reality show to consequently postpone the show until further notice.

M-Net and Endemol South Africa advise that due to the devastating fire at the Big Brother house on September 2, 2014, Big Brother Hotshots will not launch this Sunday, September 7, as scheduled.

The cause of the fire, at this stage, is unknown and investigations will commence as soon as it is safe to do so but no one was injured during the fire.

It should be noted that due to stringent changes to South Africa's visa regulations, Endemol South Africa first had to dump the originally selected contestants from Ghana and start a frantic search for Ghana residents already living in South Africa to put in the show.

Then Endemol South Africa had to also drop Rwanda and Sierra Leone as participating countries from the 9th season which was set to start on Sunday with highlight shows running on AfricaMagic Showcase (DStv 150) and two 24-hour DStv TV channels on channels 197 and 198.

At this stage, M-Net and Endemol are urgently looking for an alternative Big Brother house in which to film the production, however as this production has highly technical infrastructure, camera and edit requirements an alternative is not immediately available.

Every effort will be made to find a solution as quickly as possible to ensure that Africa’s biggest reality show will continue. - See more at:
