Game On! 7 African Celebrities including Nigerian Pop Star Goldie will be in the Big Brother StarGame House



With less than 3 days to go before the start of Big Brother StarGame on AfricaMagic Entertainment and DStv channel 198, the game has well and truly begun.

Today (Thursday May 3), just 24 hours after three images of the newly designed house were revealed, came Biggie’s latest surprise…the news that 7 celebrity housemates would be part of the seventh season of Africa’s biggest reality TV show.

With a USD 300 000 winner prize on the table and a new format that sees contestants doubling up to play, the 91 day super-series was already shaping up to be exciting entertainment but this latest twist could take the game to an entirely different level. But just who are the stars who will make their entrance when the show launches on Sunday May 6 at 20:00 CAT?

Each a dynamic go-getter with headlines to prove their fame, if these seven personalities are not already continentally famous, then in a few days, they definitely will be:

• 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.

    May 4, 2012 at 11:38 am

  42. Partyrider

    May 4, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    You guys should chill a little..we don’t know yet how they will we all know there are lots of twists in BBA.they may just be there to spice things up,plus I’m pretty sure the two contestants from each of the countries will still be in the house with the exception of these celebs.
    Plus I don’t think it will be fair to give that money to celebs that already have their lives going on well for them rather than people who need to money to boost their lives..
    Let’s watch and see.
