Big Brother Africa officially launched last night (6 May 2012) with the people who will be residing in the house for a couple of months coming out

Big Brother has officially opened house

in pairs.

I.K Osakioduwa (hello cutie) hosted the show for the fourth year and he promises more drama this year then any other season.

I have personally never really been a big fan of the reality show, as it means having to stay stuck to the telly day in day out for a couple of months to catch glimpses of this drama. Most of the time there really is nothing going on.

Anyhow…J.Cole was the special performance for the show’s opening. The performance and short interview felt a bit ackward to me. But again it’s just me.

South Africa is being represented by the ever charming (yawn) Babalwa Mneno.

Contestants from Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Zimbabwe and Zambia will also be joining in the fun….

If you wanna keep part of the ‘cool’ crowd on a constant basis, you can search for #BigBrotherAfrica on twitter. So far the tweets look a little something like this:
