It’s no longer news that that the 2015 edition of the Big Brother African Show has been cancelled but what is more interesting is that some fans of the reality show in Nigeria are celebrating the absence of the show.
According to a fan who preferred anonymity, the show has nothing to offer in terms of morality.
‘I am actually happy that the show has been cancelled because I don’t even understand the relevance of the show. In years past viewers have been exposed to exquisite content where housemates could been seen making love. I mean it is disgusting,’ she explained.
So far the reason advanced for the cancellation of the show has been tied to lack of sponsorship.
According to reports, the organizers of the show, Africa Magic and Endemol are unable to get sponsorship for this year’s edition of the show.
The Manager of Multichoice Ghana, Anne Sackey has explained that MNET did not give them any reasons as to why they will not be airing the Big Brother this year, but she suggested it could be due to sponsorship constraints.
“They didn’t give us any reason though, but I think it’s mainly because of cash constraints as we all know the show is very expensive to put up” she said.
Anne Sackey said since the organisers don’t have a constant annual headline sponsors for the show, it becomes difficult sometimes getting sponsors.
The continental reality show, which kicked off in 2003, has had nine editions so far.
The ninth edition, Big Brother Africa Hotshots was nearly marred by series of controversies over the Ebola pandemic that hit Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. There were allegations that the outbreak forced organisers to hold auditions in South Africa for Ghanaian contestants.
Days to the launch of last year’s show, the Big Brother Africa Houses in the Sasani Studios in Johannesburg, went up in flames. Organisers had to postpone the launch for a month.
They said in the statement that, “M-Net has announced that while regional Big Brother shows are being produced, including Big Brother Angola and Big Brother Mzansi, the continental version of the show is currently on hold.”
The statement added that, “Big Brother continues to captivate audiences in each market in which it is produced, and the move to regionalise the show allows producers to re-evaluate the direction of the show.”
“M-Net wishes to thank Big Brother Africa fans for their continuous support and assure them that in the future further announcements will be made,” organisers added.
