Big Brother Africa 9 postponed due to fire outbreak

Big Brother Africa Season 9, intended to be launched on Sunday, September 7 has been postponed indefinitely due to a fire incident at the BBA House in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Read Press Release from M-Net:

"M-Net and Endemol SA advise that due to a devastating fire at the Big Brother house on September 2, 2014, 'Big Brother Hotshots' will not be launched this Sunday, September 7 as scheduled.

The cause of the fire at this stage is unknown, and investigations will commence as soon as it is safe to do so.

At this stage M-Net and Endemol are urgently looking for an alternative Big Brother house in which to film the production, however as this production has highly technical infrastructure, camera and edit requirements an alternative is not immediately available.

Every effort will be made to find a solution as quickly as possible to ensure that Africa’s biggest reality show will continue.”
