Reality TV star, Dorathy Bachor has reacted to the news of the upcoming reality TV show, Big Brother Face Off.
This will be an “all-stars” match-up between Big Brother Naija and Big Brother Mzansi, filled with winners from previous seasons of both shows from Nigeria and South Africa and broadcast on DStv across Africa in early 2023.
After seven seasons of Big Brother Naija in Nigeria and five seasons of Big Brother Mzansi – the first two of which were titled Big Brother SA – MultiChoice and M-Net are working on bringing the former contestants of both countries’ versions together in one show with the working title of Big Brother Face-Off.
““In 2023, we’ll be starting the year off with a bang, which will be the giants of Africa coming together on the Big Brother version of South Africa against Nigeria,” says Nomsa Philiso, MultiChoice’s head of programming.
This has been an incredible, incredible feat for us because we know how well Big Brother Mzansi does, we know how well Big Brother Naija does, but we just felt that it was time to bring the two together. We’re excited about that, and we just think that it’s going to be amazing.

At first it sounded exciting but on second thought, people will just be rooting for who’s from their country instead of someone playing the game..
So If SA wins, what’s our gain? they come here to take our money omoh, there will now be war between Nigeria and SA cos no matter what I can’t support SA
Funny enough I think the South Africans will win most of the HOH competitions. I think most of the Nigerians will go first.
