Liberia Qualified For “Big Brother”
The anticipation of many persons in the sub region to see Liberians participating in the most talked about television program “Big Brother Africa” has been accomplished as some Liberians have been qualified to participate in this year’s event.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Consolidated Group, provider of DStv services in Liberia, Simon Freeman over the weekend explained that Liberia’s qualification is an opportunity for the candidates to portray some of Liberia’s culture to the world.
Mr. Freeman said the qualified Liberians should make use of their participation to tell the rest of Africa what Liberia is made of by telling the Liberian story. He said Liberia delayed in participating in this program in the past because many persons were not subscribing to DStv.
The Consolidated Group Executive officer assured Liberians that his entity has reduced the cost of DStv to enable many persons see the entire program on the ‘Big Brother STARGAME’.
Mr. Freeman further pleaded with Liberians to send in as many text messages as they can to enable the Liberian representatives emerge as winners. “Though the texting will be costly, let us do it for our people. Let us do it for Liberians,” he implored.
Nigerian Movie Star, Desmond Elliott, has assured Liberians that his country will give its support to Liberia to ensure that Liberia wins the award of US$ 300,000. He challenged Liberians to give all of their supports so that the country’s representatives will return home with pride.
Though the names of those representing Liberia were not disclosed, the Big Brother STARGAME began on Sunday on DStv Channel 98, the place to Africa.
On this Channel, viewers will see the action live, all day, every day and it is available to DStv Compact, Compact plus and Premium subscribers. For the next few days, the launch and eviction shows will be screened on Sundays, while the nomination shows will also be screened on Mondays.
The daily shows will come up from Wednesdays to Fridays and weekly highlight shows are screened on Saturdays on Africa Magic entertainment channels. The edited highlights of the series will also be screened on the new pay TV operator GOtv this year.
