Big Brother Africa 6: The Final Call for entry!

With the February 27 deadline looming and just a week left for wannabe entrants to submit their entries for BIG BROTHER AFRICA 6, M-Net has made an exciting announcement for all those people who have left it too late to enter!

With the February 27 deadline looming and just a week left for wannabe entrants to submit their entries for BIG BROTHER AFRICA 6, M-Net has made an exciting announcement for all those people who have left it too late to enter! With a vast amount of entries streaming in from across the 14 participating countries, M-Net has confirmed that it will also run open auditions in the different countries – so that those people who didn’t submit a paper entry, still get one last chance to try out for the new season.

“We’re extremely pleased with the response that this year’s call to entry has had,” says M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi. “Going into a 6th season, we knew that there would be interest but the scale of this interest has been quite phenomenal with over 5000 entries already received, certainly among the highest number of entries for any edition of Big Brother Africa.”

She goes on to say, “However, we’re aware that there are always people who leave it too late to enter and then arrive at the audition venues, where our teams are holding phase two audition sessions, to plead for a chance to try out. So this year, in addition to paper entries, we’ll also have open audition days. This way, if you submitted a paper entry, your entry has already been evaluated and successful candidates will be called and seen first at audition venues. But those people who didn’t do a paper entry will have one last chance to enter when our selection team is in the participating countries. They simply need to arrive at the audition venue on the relevant days.”

“But I would strongly suggest that people opt to submit a written entry. There’s still some time to do this! Your entry definitely gets priority with our selection teams who read through it in detail and are able to spend time working through the information. ”

To submit a written entry for the show, log on to and complete your entry form online. Or download an entry form from the website, complete and email it back to The deadline for all written entries to be submitted is 27 February 2011 – so don’t delay.

Entry is open to would-be housemates who are 21-years or older, English speaking, have a valid passport and is a citizen of any one of the 14 participating countries (Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe). Remember that all entrants must be tolerant of views and lifestyle choices other than their own and must have the social flexibility to live in close proximity with others.

Atongo Zimba is set to release the visuals for ‘Akwantuo (feat. Yaw Donkor & Awurama Agyapong)



Ahead of his long-awaited album, Atongo Zimba brings us up to speed on his experience of travelling between continents. After taking a step back from a prolific career touring the world, Atongo reflects on going back to Ghana and people’s expectations of the returning star – the pressure and bittersweet price of success.

“When you travel and work hard then go back home, people want big things from you. It becomes like a trouble”

Atongo Zimba

The video for ‘Akwantuo’ (meaning ‘Journey’ in Twi) follows Atongo from Accra to Brighton and back again, lead by his melodic kologo and a laid-back groove underpinning the storytellers’ voice. Directed by the visionary self-shooter Baffour E’mage, the video is an insiders eye to life in Accra through almost documentary-like scenes of music, people, food, nature, city life and travelling.

Featuring the bright new talent of soul diva Awurama Agyapong and a rapper with serious flow, Yaw Donkor, ‘Akwantuo’ takes us on a shared journey, wherever the destination may be.

‘Akwantuo’ is available exclusively on Apple Music from this week and the full album will be released via Jinn Records on all digital platforms on Friday 8th October. We’d love to hear from you! Please do get in touch for more information, interviews, features, or just to say hi.

UPNMG Refutes Malicious Claims Made Against Its Leadership



The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana (UPNMG) has
refuted some malicious claims made against the association’s

This comes after a wrier on Opera News with the name OBENFOBRIGHT, who
claimed to be a former member of the UPNMG and amongst many other
things, alleged that the Union doesn’t assist its members who fall

However, in a statement, the leadership of the UPNMG vehemently
refuted the claims, describing them as malicious.

“We want to state emphatically that, the faceless individual who could
not reveal his identity has never been a member of the UPNMG and
obviously knows nothing about the activities of the union but is
rather on a fruitless mission to destroy the hard-earned reputation
built by the organization over the years to satisfy his pay masters,”
a section of the statement said.

Meanwhile, the UPNMG went ahead to outline some of the intervention
schemes it has rolled out for its members.

“The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana is the first
trade Union within our noble profession to have instituted a loan
scheme for members and this loan is running at 11%.

“Anyone who speaks ill of this initiative must definitely beconsidered
an enemy of the profession because this has been a life-saving policy
that has helped thousands of Nurses and Midwives across this country.
Interestingly, they are now saying the interest rate is high when they
initially said it wasn’t even possible to run such a scheme for
members less than a year ago.

The statement added: “Apart from the loan scheme, the Union is again
the first to commence a hire purchase for members and that has been
running since its inception in May 2020. Again, we can boast of being
the first ever union within our profession to insure all our members
at no extra cost. That means no members pay any extra money for this
insurance policy.

“The union behind these malicious claims has been in existence for the
past 60 years and has done nothing for nurses and midwives. Our
presence has since kept the kitchen boiling and has made life very
uncomfortable for them, and hence these calculated attempts to dirty
the name of the union.”
