Following a recent fire incident that forced the postponement of this years’ edition of the Big Brother Africa, BBA show, organisers of the reality television show have assured that the event would soon return.
M-Net and Endemol, producers of the show, made this known in a recent statement. The producers said the event would return soon, as a new venue has been acquired.
“Following the devastating fire on September 2, at the Big Brother House in Johannesburg, M-Net and Endemol SA had spent time searching both locally and internationally for a venue in which to produce Season 9 of the highly popular Big Brother Africa reality show. After exploring all possible options, the team is delighted to announce that the show will go on as a venue has been found to get the show on air within the next month,” the statement read.
This year’s show called the Hotshots edition was meant to start on Sunday September 7, until the fire incident, which was said to have gutted about 56 cameras, the special one-sided glass panels and other state-of-the-art equipment.
M-Net and Endemol said the sophistication of these equipment, coupled with logistics, were reasons for the slight delay in resuming the show.
“A multitude of factors have had to be considered, including the complex technical requirements, logistics, technical crews and satellite link facilities, which have all formed part of the challenge. However, M-Net is delighted to assure all its Big Brother fans that their favourite reality show will launch soon and thanks to fans from across the continent for their support during the last few days,” the organizers explained.Follow Us on Social Media
