However, if you were unable to enter online or submit the entry at your nearest MultiChoice office, the good news is that there is still an opportunity to enter through the open auditions on the same dates, venue and time.
The open auditions allow individuals that were unable to enter before entries closed one last chance to impress the selection team. All you are required to do is fill in the entry form which is currently available at your nearest MultiChoice office, then make your way to the audition venue where a production team member will assist you.
Remember, entries are only open to persons over the age of 21, who are citizens of one of the participating countries and who either have a valid passport or will be able to obtain one by the end of March.
Producers are looking for persons who are fluent in English, entertaining, open-minded, adventurous, bold and passionate about the Big Brother experience. Importantly the selection team is looking for qualities of tolerance, determination and enthusiasm.
Having recently reached 1 million likes on Facebook and currently sitting with over 285 000 Twitter followers, these interactive platforms are amongst the many ways that audiences will be kept updated on all the latest news on the eighth season of Big Brother Africa, leading up to the 26th of May when new housemates will be revealed to audiences in 47 countries across Africa.
