The audition details of the upcoming brand-new 9th season of Big Brother Africa is now known.

The 9th season of Big Brother Africa will start on television on Sunday 7 September on DStv for 91 days and is once again produced in Johannesburg, South Africa by Endemol South Africa.

People need to be 21 and older and must have a valid passport.

People in 14 countries can enter, although Angola is dropped and has been replaced by Rwanda.

"The inclusion of Rwanda in this season is even more exciting as this displays that our reach and growth into the various sub-Saharan markets is going from strength to strength," says Nico Meyer, MultiChoice Africa CEO.

"We look forward to seeing further growth as well as the impressive social media presence that the show enjoys".

"We have been producing this series for M-Net for a number of seasons now and as partners, together we have seen this show grow to the phenomenon that it has become," says Sivan Pillay, managing director of Endemol.

"Audiences and fans can expect yet another high quality production".
