Back in the days, Big Brother Africa was the continent’s most followed reality TV show. The M-net Africa Magic show aired its first season in 2003, the second in 2007, and did not stop again until 2014 when Idris Sultan of Tanzania emerged the winner of the $300,000 prize.

However, after a 7-year hiatus, the show runners have now confirmed that the reality show will be back as part of celebrations to mark it’s 20th anniversary.

Confirming the forthcoming show, M-Net’s Executive Head of Programming, Nomsa Philiso said: “This year marks 20 years since the very first Big Brother on MultiChoice’s M-Net and we are excited to celebrate this milestone by commissioning a new Big Brother season, which will be housed under our Mzansi Magic stable.”

“This is a show that has always delivered top ratings and entertainment value, and our viewer and advertising partners can look forward to a stellar season of Big Brother.”

Big Brother Africa 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 while Rwanda was added in season 9.

Each country provides at least one contestant living in an isolated house while trying to avoid being evicted by viewers and ultimately winning a large cash prize at the end of the show. The show is co-produced by Endemol South Africa.
