Last Sunday evening, M-net revealed 26 exciting new housemates for the sixth season of the hit reality TV series, Big Brother Africa, dubbed ‘Big Brother Amplified’. The opening show which was headlined by international hiphop star, Busta Rhymes, saw the ever-likeable host for the third season running, I.K. Osakioduwa naming the rapper and his sidekick, Spliff Star as Jabu (Jabulani) and Adedunte.

 

The Big Brother Amplified housemates include: Miss. P (24, Freelance Communicator) and Zues (24, Entrepreneur, Artiste and Marketer) represented Botswana, Zambia: Mumba (24, Radio DJ) and Kim (21, Beautician), Ethiopia: Hanni (22, Singer, Student) and Danny (34, Self Employed), Uganda: Ernest (28, Public Relations Consultant) and Sharon (25, Artiste/Musician), Zimbabwe: Vimbai (26, Model) and Wenball (23, Pilot), Nigeria: Vina (26, Radio Presenter) and Karen (27, Unemployed), Tanzania: Lotus (24, TV Presenter) and Bhoke (26, TV Broadcaster), Kenya: Nico (26, TV Producer) and Millicent (28, Actress), Namibia: Bernadina (21, Construction) and Jossy (28, Recording Artist / Marketing, Sales and Ad Manager), South Africa: Luclay (28, Actor / Acting Coach) and Nkuli (23, Student), Malawi: Felicia (24, Purchaser) and Lomwe (27, Radio and Club DJ), Ghana: Confidence (37, CEO of MultiMedia Company / Owner Aphrodisiac Nightclub) and Alex (31, Fashion Designer), Angola: Weza (26, TV Presenter, Model) and Mozambique: Michael (32, Hairdresser).

Meanwhile things have heated up in the house within the first 48 hours.  The housemates were soon to find out that they aren’t fully fledged housemates yet when big brother announced to them that the first week in the house would be an audition week to determine which of the 26 would make the final cut.  Big Brother caused a bit of a stir in the House when he reemphasized the importance of the Audition Week, telling the Housemates that all aspects of their behaviour would be considered in the selection. This was during the first Nomination Show. Biggie congratulated the Housemates for making it through the first 24 hours. “I trust that you are ready to show the world that you are the freshest, loudest, ‘illest’ and most amplified Housemates of all time… People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing,” Big Brother added.

 

Also, the first kiss was registered between Alex and Millicent Kiss, and a series of racial arguments have ensued with Karen calling her fellow Nigerian housemate Vina, fake because she cannot speak pidgin fluently. Karen has also come down hard on Vimbai, charging her for having an “American” accent. The Nigerian Housemate wanted to know why Vimbai speaks the way she does yet she is “just from Zimbabwe”. Karen even got to a point of asking Vimbai if she was certain she’s not American.

 

Bhoke has also had a private viewing of Ernest’s “jewels” while he was taking a shower. With the shower door closed, the fully-clothed Bhoke stood on one side of the shower while Ernest cleansed his temple. Michael looked a bit disturbed when he found the two together in the shower but he chose not to say much about it. However, Bhoke insisted that he could use the other shower while Ernest was getting ready to get out but he preferred to wait for him. Michael then started singing and dancing just outside the shower while he waited for the Ugandan Housemate to finish.

Certainly things are warming up. Stay tuned!

The Blackmob rapper currently boasts of the hottest song in Accra, Ghana and that’s a fact – according to Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra at least. Listen/stream ‘Boys Aye Wild’ here: https://gambomusic.ffm.to/gambo-boys-aye-wild

 

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.

 

Introduced in early 2021 by the Cupertino-based tech giant, City Charts is an updated playlist meant to bring local artists to the forefront of the conversation around music discovery, one it achieves by reflecting the musical tastes of listeners in over 100 cities from around the world on a daily basis.
