BREAKING NEWS: Big Brother Africa welcomes most controversial housemate ever!

You know we had to get on the band wagon as well. So Rumors Surfacing today state that An American "KID" will be entering the ‪#‎BBAHotShots‬House come the 5th of October as a major Twist to the show.

An article by Media Whispers states - " producers have lined-up an incredible star to join the other crazy hopefuls.

Controversial internet star, BradTheLadLong, who is famous for his odd but amusing Youtube videos has been confirmed as a housemate for the African version of Big Brother.

The unusual American youngster recently made headlines after he was offered a big sum to enter 'Celebrity Big Brother' in the UK but dropped out last minute as he said he was 'too famous' for the gig but is desperate to make a name for himself in Africa.

This is the first time Big Brother Africa have put in a well-known person into the house but it's said they are hoping for fireworks as Brad stirs the whole game up completely and brings out the strategic side that Big Brother is meant to have.

After Brad tweeted from his twitter account, "en route to africa!", a top UK reality TV producer commented, "producers behind Big Brother Africa have definitely got it right this year. BradTheLadLong is a phenomenal signing and viewers should be ready for the best Big Brother they've ever seen. He's crazy...will tune in for the first time."

It is expected that this will be the highest rated ever Big Brother due to the appearance of BradTheLadLong as people will be intrigued to see what the Youtuber gets up to."

NB: All we can say is, i hope the producers bring this little Kid to Africa, so that Our Housemates and us the FANS show him that " THIS IS AFRICA " and No one is Above others here, "Too Famous" hahaha this kid will wish he never signed up for ‪#‎BBA‬ because i know for a fact OUR Housemates won't take his bullsh*t (excuse our french)

As of the writing of this post, it seems Big Brother Africa is currently having issues with the official website of Big Brother Africa.

The official website, has been down for some time now, and no more contestants have been revealed today.

Biggie was surprising us all when he started announcing the names of contestants for the much awaited Big Brother Hotshots, even before the show began.

This was met by a lot of resistance from some fans, who say announcing the contestants before the show begins is a wrong move. They said that one of the things they look up to Big Brother Africa premier date, is the name of the contestants.

As time goes by, we hope that the official website will be up and running for us to get the latest news on Big Brother Africa, Season 9. Would you like biggie to continue announcing the names of contestants before the show begins?

Big Brother Africa Season 9 will be airing on our screens for 63 days, and not 91 days as it had been earlier on communicated. An official message from MNet press release indicate that the show will be airing for only 63 days. 
“Big Brother Africa returns to the continent’s television screens, a little later, a lot better and definitely hotter! Big Brother HotShots is going to dish out drama, more entertainment than you can handle and most importantly a cool USD300 000 to the housemate who will manage to survive 63 days in Biggie’s house.”
This comes as no surprise to many, as the show was postponed numerous times. At first, the show is said to have been postponed because of World Cup 2014, which was on during the time the show usually begins.

As fans waited for the 7th September premier date, a surprising fire razed down one of the houses where Big Brother Africa usually aired. It would be extremely hard for the show to be aired during December holidays as well as during the New Year celebration.
