    What most times make those discussions very interesting is the fact that some of the fans have a better understanding of the Housemates to such an extent that they could reveal details of their characters. It is such discussions that are really giving currency to the show, getting others on-board, adding juice to it and above all making it very dramatic.

    A typical example is all the gossip around Housemate No 1, “PEE-SIS MALAIKA”, whose real name is Abass Turay, the guy that is dropping the humorous vibes, sending viewers rocking with laughter.

    Youth empowerment is at the core of this Reality TV Show as designed by the organizers, Africell Sierra Leone and the Africa Young Voices (AYV) Empire.
