After weeks of waiting, Big Brother Africa is finally here!

The live launch of Season 9, themed Hotshots, has started! It’s all about the glitz and glam, the bold and fabulous, and whatever else Big Brother may have up his sleeve.

Africa is set to experience 63 days of complete entertainment from 26 housemates who each believe they possess special talent.

The representatives are sure to make every effort to outshine each other in the hope that they will be this year’s grand prize winner. With the ultimate Hotshot walking away with a cash prize of USD300 000, it comes as little surprise.

Much-loved host IK is also back on Big Brother Africa. He returns this year for the sixth time, bringing his own share of style and swag!

IK walked on stage with a new look as his wardrobe has been revamped. His stylist this year is Nigerian designer, Mai Atafo. This African gem will make sure that viewers look forward to seeing IK on eviction shows, adorned in stylish suits with a variety of textures and tastes.

Get ready for a sizzling experience like never before, on Big Brother Hotshots. The housemates are finally on their way into the house and this season promises to be sexy, fun, action-packed and captivating, and everyone’s already hooked!

Finding their feet

The party started last night in the house, as the housemates sang, played guitar and jammed together. It was clear they were getting comfortable with one another and loving Biggie’s gorgeous new house.

Uganda’s Esther Akankwasa was the first into the Jacuzzi; while Luis and Nhlanhla were making sure the ladies had lots to look at, whipping their shirts off as soon as they were inside.

As far as firsts go, Laveda secured the most important one. Winning the honour of head of house, she is immune from eviction for the first week.

Lilian, sexy and glamorous at the launch, donned a completely different look for the kitchen. With the help of her fellow housemates, she whipped together a delicious pasta dish so that the housemates could share their first meal together.

The good vibes continued between the housemates, but the conversation took a serious turn and got a little deeper when they started talking about a favourite topic in the house: love. There was much rumination about soulmates, and Luis even declared he was looking for love. Will he find it in the house?

There were hints that others may have found something special already as Macky2 and Esther got comfortable, as well as Lilian and Frankie, and Tayo and Laveda. Was it for real, or was it strategy? Only time will tell.

After spending weeks in isolation under house arrest, the housemates were happy to be around other people again and enjoyed one another’s company. The Hotshots have lived up to their title in every way.

From an explosive opening show to elation inside the house, the housemates were absolutely brimming with looks, talent, personality and confidence. After revelling in the excitement of a fantastic launch, Africa is geared up for whatever is around the next corner.


Meanwhile, Nigerian music star, Davido and Casper Nyovest leave the crowd wanting more.

The studio audience just about lost their minds when BET award winner and ‘Skelewu’ hit-maker Davido took to the stage. Africa was ready for the Nigerian born international sensation – or should we say they weren’t – as he launched into the banger.

Dripping sheer bling and swagger next to his hype man, Davido set the building ablaze. So hot was he performance IK had to join in and bust a move.

Hot property on the South African music scene right now is singer and producer Cassper Nyovest launched onto stage, pony tail trade mark to fit, with his hit song ‘Doc Shebeleza’.

Emerging on the African hip hop scene, he brings his special brand of talent, and taxi-driver swagger, back to the Big Brother Africa stage.

This year saw the release of Cassper’s debut album Tsholofelo, which features the hit song ‘Gushesehe’
