Big Brother Africa offers opportunities for the very unknown to get international exposure and it offers a lifetime experience of enjoying free booze, free food and other benefits apart from sharing space with other personalities from different countries across Africa.
Regardless of your actions in the Big Brother house, your entry to fame is assured and who doesn’t want that? Surely, Ghanaian actress, Vicky Zugah wants a piece of the action too.
It therefore came as no surprise, when the actress was spotted as one of the over 200 aspiring persons who turned up at the Auditions at the Holiday Inn in Accra over the weekend for the selection of representative(s) for the 9th edition of the most watched show across Africa. Unfortunately, Vicky was disqualified and could not make it to the next stage of the auditions.
When Razz Newspaper caught up with the actress after the announcement of her disqualification, she looked upbeat and tried to conceal her disappointment. She claimed that, there’s nothing wrong with celebrities participating in Big Brother auditions.
According to her, the Big Brother Africa platform and its benefits are huge, and considering the credibility of the program, she sees no reason why any celebrity should not be involved in it.
Asked if she would try again next year, she responded: “If God gives me life next year and I’m not too busy, I will surely come back and audition.”
Speaking about her disqualification, Vicky claimed that she was told after her introduction to the panel that – she doesn’t fit in this year’s theme for the reality show.
However, the likes of Selma Mumuni, BB Bright, Leo Mensah and Vicky Zugah’s boyfriend managed to make it to the second round.
In a chat with the PRO of Multi Choice Ghana, Mr. Atu Abbassah, he said that the responses this year have been positive and looking at the class of people coming to the audition, he’s impressed.
