Big Brother Stargame on AfricaMagic Entertainment and DStv channel 198, makes another grand entrance onto our screens tonight, with 7 pairs going into the Big Brother house, to scheme, plot, play and seduce their way to victory. Let’s hope there is a lot of drama to be had, because, where’s the fun otherwise?
With a $300,000 cash prize on the table and a new format that sees contestants doubling up to play, each player is a dynamic go-getter with headlines to prove their fame.
There are seven celebrities (each coming with their partner) vying for the Africa’s attention and for the serious chunk of change. If you didn’t know them before, here is a break down of who they are:
• Stylish entertainer, stand-up comedian and television pro DKB from Ghana (26)
• Tough, talented rap icon Prezzo from Kenya (32)
• Award-winning songstress Lady May from Namibia (25)
• Boldly dramatic pop music sensation Goldie from Nigeria (28)
• Famed socialite, model and businesswoman Barbz from South Africa (34)
• Unforgettable, highly successful R&B diva Mampi from Zambia (25)
• Unique and hugely popular, soulful musician Roki from Zimbabwe (27)
For now, the names and ages of the celebrities is all that Big Brother has revealed. How they will play the game or fit into the doubles theme, still remains to be seen. One thing’s for sure…they are certainly going to bring a star-studded appeal to STARGAME!
Commenting on the series, M-Net Africa MD Biola Alabi is pleased with the response it is getting.
“It’s super to see the high level of interaction STARGAME is getting from fans, media and viewers. The guessing around who the housemates will be; people trying to work out what Biggie is planning; the rumors and the speculation; it all adds to the excitement. It’s great for the show to get this type of support from the Big Brother community who really do engage with it, even before it starts on air. I want to thank them and promise that we’re working hard to deliver a great series.”
