The Season 8 of Big Brother Africa titled The Chase kicked off with a live screening at 6pm West Africa Time on AfricaMagic DStv channel 197 and 198. The show as promised kicked off with South Africaâ€™s leading Afro Pop music group, Mafikizolo â€˜Khonaâ€™ featuring Uhuru.
Then IK (Ikponmwosa) Osakioduwa the BBA host came riding in on a power bike with the complete gear looking very smooth. He introduced a short video tribute of Late Nigerian singer and entertainer Goldie Harvey by showing some clips from her time in the house at the previous BBA (Season 7).
Then South African actress and comedian Tumi Morake and Kenyaâ€™s comedian Churchill joined IK on stage who later sent them to each go check out the two separate houses named Diamond and Ruby houses where the 14 contestants will spend the next 91days.
The way the housemates were selected into their respective Diamond and Ruby houses was that a female housemate was called on stage already assigned to a house then allowed to pick a letter or number as the case applied which represented a male housemate that will join the female housemate that selected him, that simple!
The opening show also saw captivating performances from Kenyaâ€™s very own award winning rapper STL and Nigeriaâ€™s heavyweights Don Jazzy, Dâ€™Prince and Wande Coal.
