Meanwhile, this year’s Big Brother Africa is rumoured to be marred in controversy. It is alleged that there is a high chance the African number one reality show may not feature this year. The international media reported that some of the reasons, apart from the fact that the show may have lost its popularity, are that the sponsors also have felt the pinch.
According to their official Facebook page, an article is quoted as saying, ‘ Last year’s import duties alone ran into millions. In the current economic climate, one has to choose wisely if your sponsorship will bring returns. “Public interest has dwindled and the show needs a huge overhaul.”
