2 More Days’ for Big Brother Application Deadline

By Ranger

The Africa Young Voices (AYV) Media Empire and Africell has announced that interested participants in the upcoming Big Brother Housemates Sierra Leone (BBHSL) can still purchase and submit their application forms until 5th December 2018 as the deadline was extended due to the rush and calls from the general public to extend the deadline.

It could be recalled that the initial deadline was Friday 30th November 2018.

The need for the extension according to a joint press release by AYV and Africell is to give opportunity to those who want to be part of the show, but have not bought their form or returned it.


“We believe this is an opportunity that every interested person must not be left out of”-­‐the organisers said. Also, the dates for the auditions are officially released below:


Freetown-­‐-­‐Auditions will be held from Friday 7th December to Sunday 9th December at the Sierra Palms Resort, Lumley Beach Road

7am to 5pm Makeni-­‐-­‐Friday 14th December at the Makeni Town Hall,

7am to 5pm Kono-­‐-­‐Saturday 15th December at the Sahr Musa Sessie Gbenda Hall, at 40 Bona Street, Koidu City

7am to 5pm Bo-­‐Monday 17th December at the Bo Town Hall

7am to 5pm Kenema-­‐-­‐Tuesday 18th December at the Kenema town hall 7am to 5pm


The organizers want to remind the interested public that the grand prize is one hundred million Leones (Le100, 000, 000.00) and each participant will receive a daily stipend of Le100,000.00 from Monday to Friday with the exception of the winner.

Forms are still available at all AYV and Africell offices across the country or at website till the 5th of December.

Application costs only one hundred and fifty thousand Leones (Le150,000).

Payment for registration form can ONLY be made through Africell Mobile Money to the Africell number 088201020.

The unique payment code MUST be written in the application form to validate your form.



With the extension for the purchase and deposit of application forms to Sierra Leone’s next biggest reality TV show, Big Brother Housemates Salone 2019, which is another opportunity for the Africa Young Voices Media Empire (AYV) to not only entertain, but to empower young people to showcase their talents and at the same time create new millionaires among Sierra Leoneans.
5th December, 2018 is the new date by which time all applications should have been deposited at the AYV and at Africell offices.


It could be recalled that the Big Sister Salone 2018 created millionaires of youth who initially had nothing. With the launch of its latest TV Reality show, Big Brother Housemates Salone 2019, AYV in partnership with Africell seeks to further raise the stakes and empower more youth as well as make new millionaires of young Sierra Leoneans in and out of the country.


“The show is meant to promote young people and entertainment in the country,” AYV CEO Ambassador Anthony Navo recently told a press conference.


He added that: “The Big Brother Housemates Salone 2019 will involve 10 male and 10 female housemates living together for six weeks in the Big Brother House.”


Big Brother Housemates Salone 2019 promises to be a never-to-be-forgotten reality TV masterpiece. To further heighten the excitement, the participants will enter the house on 14th February 2019 (Valentine’s Day).

Quite recently, the ultra-modern posh Big Brother House was unveiled by AYV’s Director of Operations, Stella Bangura and many viewers watched in awe at the elegant palace and there was no doubt in the minds of manty people that the $500,000 being invested to host the show is worth it.


Meanwhile, Ambassador Navo has been commended for taking entertainment above the ordinary to the extra-ordinary. Dr. Lakkoh said that they could not have been able to do all what they are doing to cover the whole country and the world without the full cooperation of the telecommunication giant Africell, hence the partnership.
