Confirmed: Big Brother Mzansi Is Back In Town

Banijay and MultiChoice Group, have finally confirmed that Mzansi’s favorite reality show Big Brother Mzansi, is making a huge comeback soon and we are here for it. Yesterday there were unverified reports that the show would be re-launching and it was reported that the channel would be releasing a statement today.

In a statement released on social media this morning, the channel confirmed that the highly anticipated series is coming back and said it will be exciting and action-packed as ever. However, they did not reveal details about the audition process and mechanism.

“Just in time to heat up summer!! MultiChoice Group and Banijay are pleased to announce that the much-loved Big Brother Mzansi will be making its highly anticipated return to your screens soon, and it promises to be as exciting, entertaining and action-packed as ever. Big Brother Mzansi is one of 69 adaptations of the Big Brother format worldwide and this year marks 20 years since the first ever Big Brother South Africa.”

The show topped the Twitter trends list yesterday as avid watchers of the show were beaming with excitement that it would be making a triumphant comeback.

Phil Mphela broke the news on Twitter “Big Brother Mzansi returns. Multichoice is working on bringing the popular reality show back. Sources have informed me that a final brief on the status of the show’s return will be made today. No official audition channels have been approved yet,” he tweeted.

After his tweet, the show sparked a huge debate on the timelines about what would make it more intriguing to watch this season. Tweeps reiterated that they don’t want to see celebrities and influencers. They want ordinary people who are authentic, and who want to make a name for themselves in the industry.

@THIZOZO_MOKOENA commented: “We don’t want celebrities for big brother mzansi. We’ve seen them enough on TV and heard them enough on radio. Give the normal public a chance.”

@TshepoKgakane stated “Rules for Big Brother Mzansi. 1. No influencers 2. No celebrities 3. No taken/married individuals on the show 4. Ama2000 are welcome 5. SAVANNA must sponsor Saturday night parties 6. Katlego Maboe should host.”

@Zama_N_A “I hope they will pick ordinary people. Ntombi no Ace were very entertaining. They were just ordinary people who couldn’t even speak proper English, but they gave that house life”

@Akhona_PQ, “If Big Brother Mzansi wants to succeed like Big Brother Naija, they have to make it available to all DStv packages and other countries. Majority of housemates must be new faces. They have the potential to entertain more than people who are already popular.”

Last season, Big Brother Mzansi was surrounded by controversy after a housemate was alleged to have sexually assaulted a contestant while she was asleep.

The last season of the show saw Nkanyiso Ace Khumalo and Ntombifuthi Tshabalala both walking away with whopping R2 million in cash. In 2016, the controversial couple was in the news for the wrong reasons, as they were charged with drug possession and they disappeared from the media spotlight
