If you are planning on being the next Dilishy Mathews, Uti or Karen Igho, then your dream of achieving this via Big Brother Africa might never be realized again. According to Anne Sackey, the manager of MultiChoice Ghana who said, "I think it’s mainly because of cash constraints as we all know the show is very expensive to put up," Even last year's was postponed due to fire that swept through the Sasani Studios complex with the blaze which caused millions of rands of damage. Endemol Shine Africa refused to disclose the cause of the fire as the production moved to another house.
In April this year, the latest Big Brother Mzansi season exploded in controversy over alleged rape when a male contestant bragged how he "dipped her" when he allegedly had sex with a drunk and passed out female contestant who was horrified about what she was told happened.
Endemol Shine Africa removed both from the reality show competition after the alleged sexual misconduct which lead to criticism and calls for M-Net and MultiChoice to end the misogynistic and voyeuristic reality show "which keeps encouraging and rewarding" violence and sexual misconduct against women. All these coupled with the non-availability of sponsorship might spell the end of the enter show.
