MNET's reality show, Big Brother Africa (BBA), has a huge following in Africa. In fact, it arguably is the biggest show on the network.
Since its debut a few years ago, many young people across the African continent have been tripping over one another to get admission into the "House".
It is not just the prize money, which is good but also the chance to get fame and glory. From the original US$100,000, it's now gone up to US$300,000.
Ghana has had some worthy and not so worthy ambassadors in the House, but none can surpass in infamy, the recent Ghanaian housemate, DKB.
His showing in the House from the beginning was embarrassing and culminated last week in what could only be described as assault on a female member of the House.
He was justifiably sent packing from the House and has since arrived back home in Ghana.
Tomorrow, Friday June 8 2012, Multichoice-Ghana will be holding a press conference at the Golden Tulip Hotel for him to explain to Ghanaians why he made his country the object of ridicule to millions of African BBA followers.
BBA itself tries to raise the bar of social responsibility high for the housemates, but the overdose of testosterone, oestrogen and the power of alcoholic beverages often overshadows all else...
DKB, a comedian and Zainab, a model from Sierra Leone were evicted on Monday June 4, 2012 after an argument turned violent.
According to the rules of the show, any housemate committing any act of physical violence is subject to immediate expulsion from the series.
This season saw the 'anti-violence' rule expanded to include any housemate whose provocative behaviour contributed substantially to creating a hostile and aggressive environment in which violence is the result.
The rules regarding provocation have been widely communicated to all housemates.
M-Net and series producers Endemol say they consider the rules regarding physical violence among the most important in the house and are committed to enforcing the immediate disqualification of any housemate/s who break these rules.
Both housemates will be provided with the services of a trained counselor to assist them with issues of anger management and conflict resolution.
