The 2013 edition of the Brother Africa reality show is expected to kick off on May 26 and while Ghanaians are eager to know who will be representing the country this year, there are speculations that Sarkodie may be a possible housemate.
Housemates for the eighth season of Africa’s most watched television reality show will be formally revealed to audiences in 47 countries across the continent when the show kicks off in South Africa.
The contestants will go on to compete in the 91-day reality show for the grand prize of US$300,000.
The Ghanaian media have for the past few days been inundated with reports that Black Entertainment Television (BET) award winner Sarkodie may be the likely candidate to represent Ghana this year.
Sarkodie made an appearance at the reality show last year when he performed at its grand finale which saw South African Keagan Petersen walking away as winner.
But Sarkodie, who seemed clearly amused by the reports, took to twitter Saturday to downplay the speculations stating he has no intention of being a contestant on the show.
He tweeted that: “Dis BBA really gettin some hype 4rm ma name lol!!! But where 4rm all dat? I dun even stay on TV for 30mins n u wan me 2 b under cam 4 months.”
Although Myjoyonline.com can not readily confirm if the You Go Kill Me hit singer took part in the March 16 to March 18 auditions for possible contestants for the show, Sarkodie said unless he is performing on the show, Big Brother Africa is no go area for him.
“BBA is ma fav[ourite] tho… like watching dem all nyt….. loool… nufin against it but no way imma b in da haus… unless I gotto perform “WINK”,” he noted.
According to Sarkodie, “I sleep in da studio n they want me to go BBA …. eeiiii like I go go mad.”
With that said, the Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year winner said he wants an end to discussions on the subject: “Enuf o diss bba business….. sup with ma people? ??…”
