Why Big Brother Africa 7 open auditions have come up

Posted by Leon Kalema 9:10 AM, under | No comments

In a press statement, M-Net Africa managing director Biola Alabi says the open auditions have come up because they want to give those who failed to send forms a chance to participate.

Alabi said once all the entries were in, Endemol will identify the best entrants who will be invited to a casting session.

The auditions in Malawi will be held at Ryalls Hotel in Blantyre from March 17 to 19.
MultiChoice Malawi regional manager Titania Katenga-Kaunda dismissed suggestions this was done because many people are failing to find partners.
This season, entrants wishing to participate in the television reality show must partner with another person, be it a sister, mother, father, girlfriend, neighbour, landlord or anyone who they are in good terms with.
“That’s not the issue, this has just come up because they want to give a chance to more people to enter especially those who have failed to meet the deadline,” said Katenga Kaunda. The show kicks off on May 6th.
