Africa’s most popular reality TV show Big Brother is back. This year, Rwanda will participate in the show which will have representatives from 14 countries eyeing $300,000 (Rwf 210 million) up for grabs. Rwanda will take the place of Angola in the 9th season which starts on September 7, 2014.
The show delusions usually starts in May but its not clear what has caused delay.
The famous reality TV show initially involved 12 countries within Africa (Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia & Zimbabwe) with two countries (Ethiopia and Mozambique) being added in season 4 and two other countries (Liberia and Sierra Leone) being added in season 7.
