The most frequent question now on the lips of many young people in the country is: “Have you voted for your favourite candidate to enter the House?”

I was in town yesterday at a busy business community when the question was asked and surprisingly a middle-aged lady standing close by turned to me and sought clarification relating to the above question.

As she was eager to learn from me I took my time and patiently explained to her that it all has to do with an entertainment TV Reality Show which will be presented courtesy of AYV Media Empire and Africell Sierra Leone.

I continued that this will be Season 3 with the slogan “Di Game Get Yagba, If You Nor Able Na for Pull Handand will feature twenty-two young people placed in a House for a considerable period of time with no contact with the outside world except during certain periods when they will be having visitors who will teach them new things. That while in the House they are expected to display their innate talents and do certain things that will be entertaining to viewers who will be watching the show. Some of those things, I went on, will be dictated by an unseen person who will also be taking stock of their performances as well as grading them.

It was when I mentioned that what these twenty-two young people will be competing for, which is a Star Prize of Two Hundred and Fifty Million Leones (Le 250M) plus a round trip to Dubai and that one of the sponsors of the Reality TV Show, Zarlux Car Rental, has revealed that a brand new car will be given to the winner of the Zarlux Car Rental task that will be performed by the Housemates in the House during the course of the show that the middle aged woman shouted , “What!!!” and became more interested.

To directly answer her question I told her that many opted or applied for the show and an audition was done. After the audition, sixty of the applicants were shortlisted for public voting through Africell. I went on to inform her that all the sixty applicants have their unique numbers which members of the public must use when voting.

I intimated her that members of the public should vote by sending them via SMS to: 5500 or Dial *5500#.  That for International voting an individual can call: +23299005500.

“Also, members of the public are at liberty to cast their votes via Afrimoney through the voters’ Africell lines by dialing *161*10#* plus the Numbers of their favourite contestants from any Africell line,” I said to her.

For her information and by extension members of the public there is also  a new online voting platform and a brand new website for international voters across the world to vote using credit or debit cards by just visiting: and/or visit:

I additionally told her that once Housemates Salone Season 3 commences on the 22nd May 2022 it will be shown live on AYV Entertainment Channel 34, 33 and AYV on DSTV Channel 399.

For the benefit of the lady and others the entertainment is slated in such a way that the youth empowerment show is slated to be really competitive as it is geared towards bringing out the best in the Housemates in terms of their performances in carrying out assigned tasks delegated by a certain Chief or Madam Chief.

When our chat was about to end the lady profoundly thanked me saying she really enjoyed my explanation, said she was impressed and would get onboard. “I am going to tell anybody I know to support at least by voting for any of the competitors to enter the House.

Since the Housemates will be interacting in a very conducive atmosphere within the House, these Housemates are to exhibit real life situations where one sees them courting friendly relationship, cracking jokes, gossiping, engaging in animated discussions to the point of even going into blows. The episodes, during the course of the Reality TV Show, are expected to bring out attributes that should be really captivating and fun packed to evoke laughter among viewers.

If some of the Housemates will appear sexy by the kind of dresses they wear then that must not come as any big surprise simply because they are expected to display nudity.

Again, if sometimes they talk harshly then it is because they are to intermittently use strong language and act funnily as the expectation is for them to of be humorous. Manifestation of these traits is what will really make the Reality TV Show very interesting to watch, providing some form of comic relief for viewers and serving as a therapy to reduce stresses.

In actual fact, the Reality TV Show will serve as a conduit through which the Housemates are taken through  mental and physical exercises that will end up to mould and shape their characters.
