Big Brother Africa 2014 To Hold In New Venue

The show was initially scheduled to hold on September 7, 2014 but was postponed due to a fire incident

Fans of Big Brother Africa can heave a sigh of relief as this year’s show will go on afterall.

The organizers of BBA Hotshots have released a statement saying that a new venue has been found and the show will begin within the next month.

The statement reads:

Following the devastating fire on 2 September 2014 at the Big Brother house in Johannesburg, M-Net and Endemol SA have spent the last 48 hours 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 are 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.

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 fans from across the continent for their support during the last two days.

The show was scheduled to start in Johannesburg, South Africa on Sunday September 7, 2014 but had to be cancelled indefinitely due to the fire outbreak.
