Big Brother Africa 8 (also known as Big Brother Africa: The Chase) was the eighth season of the Big Brother Africa reality television series, produced by Endemol for M-Net. It began on 26 May, 2013, running for 91 days and ending on 25 August, 2013. Ikponmwosa "IK" Osakioduwa came back to host the show for the fifth season in a row.

Format[edit]

In this season, there were twenty-eight housemates who lived in two houses – The Ruby House and The Diamond House. Each week, two housemates would swap houses for the upcoming week until the merge was reached. The housemates were competing for US $300,000. This season, 28 participants from fourteen countries participated in the series. All fourteen countries were home to previous participants including Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Kenyans in particular were urged to apply by the hosting channel.[1]

Housemates[edit]

On Day 1, twenty-eight housemates entered the House. Day 1 is also referred to as "Launch Night".

Twists[edit]

Emerald House[edit]

On day 21, Big Brother informed the housemates that there was a third house, supposedly called the "Emerald House". The Emerald House didn't actually exist; it was a deception to make housemates second-guess their chances of winning.

On day 48 during the Channel O party, Big Brother introduced six housemates from the "Emerald House": Alusa (Kenya), Busi (South Africa), Eveva (Zambia), Jazz (Kenya), JJ (Zimbabwe), and Sophie (Uganda). The introduction of these "new" housemates was intended to confuse the actual housemates when Big Brother sent them on a mission on Day 49.

On Wednesday, 10th of May 2016, it has been reported that Eveva died from surgery complications from an accident that occurred in 2014. She is the second overall ex-housemate to die. The first was Goldie from Big Brother Africa 7 who died in 2013.

Power of No[edit]

This year there was a new twist called Power of No. Beginning on week 2, this new twist gave one housemate the opportunity to deny another housemate the opportunity to participate in the next Head of House Task.

On Week 10, Elikem won the Power of No. But, as he cheated in the task, Big Brother decided to veto him from the Head of House Competition.

House Swap[edit]

This season, there was another twist added called the House Swap. In this twist, the two Houses play the Airtel Arena Games against each other. The Head of House of the winning House gets to choose two housemates from their House to go to the opposite House and bringing two housemates from the opposite House to their House.
