Today, 31st August 2020 marks the closing date for securing application forms for Housemates Salone Season 2. Interested persons who may want to secure application forms are advised to do so before offices are officially closed down.
Application forms are going for a price of One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Leones (Le150, 000) and could be secured by simply going to #AfricellSL or #AYVMediaEmpire offices across the country.
They can also be secured via online at www.africell.sl or www.ayvnews.com from the comfort of wherever you are, in or out of Sierra Leone. Payments for forms can be made through #AfriMoney on 088201020.
This year’s Show is offering the mouth-watering star prize ofTwo Hundred and Fifty Million Leones (Le 250M) plus a round trip to Dubai. Indeed, this is an opportunity for any young person, who will emerge as the ultimate winner, to become a millionaire and be financially empowered to forge ahead in life.
A ‘fast track’ for those in the diaspora, in terms of application, is available on line. Interested persons can apply on line through Africell and AYV websites; do their videos and send them to the judges on line. Interviews will be conducted online.
One major requirement is for all applicants to do their two minutes videos and send them to the judges on line stating who they are, where they are coming from and the talents they possess.
Next in line after today, will be an audition which will commence early September this year and will go on until the 21st September 2020. During the audition 40 finalists will be chosen who will then battle for the final 20 through another form of audition. The final 20 competent applicants, who successfully go through the audition, will enter the House on the 14th October 2020.
The Show is slated in such a way that when the Housemates enter the House on the 14th October 2020 the more votes a particular Housemate secures from viewers, in and out of the country, will determine how long he or she will stay in the House.
It must be noted that the Africell number through which members of the public could vote for their favourite Housemates will be announced in due course.
Interestingly, during a particular stage of the Show, based on the percentage of votes scored by a particular Housemate will also determine if he or she will be evicted from the House. Evictions will continue until the ultimate winner emerges. But one good thing is that for each day a Housemate resides in the House, he or she is entitled to One Hundred Thousand Leones (Le100, 000).
All the episodes of the Show will be broadcast live, on a 24 hours basis, on AYV Television Channel 34.
