The 5th version of Africa's most loved show Big Brother Africa is back and this time a lot better than the previous Big Brother Revolution. M-Net Africa's Managing Director Biola Alabi who made the news official said:
"What a great moment this is - to bring back a show that our audience loves for an incredible 5th time. We wanted season 4 (Big Brother Revolution) to be special but it exceeded our hopes.
With the volume of interaction the show received from fans, it was clear that season 5 was definitely on the cards. So we've been developing what we believe will be thrilling new format changes."
In this version of Big Brother, contestants are going to be selected from the huge database of applicants they have gathered in the last 4 episodes. 14 countries will participate and these include: Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Gaetano Kaggwa, Maureen Namatovu, Morris Mugisha, Phil Okure and Hannigton Kuteesa have represented Uganda in the previous Big Brother versions.
