Sean Paul set for Big Brother Africa launch


Jamaican dancehall superstar, Sean Paul, is set to perform at the launch of Africa’s biggest reality television show Big Brother Africa All-Stars in South Africa on July 18, it has emerged.
M-Net Africa has roped in the Grammy Award-winning artist to perform three of his popular songs on the glittering night which will see 14 housemates from 14 countries make their way into a brand new state–of –the–art Big Brother House.
MultiChoice Zimbabwe public relations and publicity manager, Elizabeth Dziva, confirmed the development yesterday.
“Sean Paul has been contracted to perform at the Big Brother Africa All-Stars launch,” she said, adding, “Now with Sean Paul jetting in to perform at the Big Brother All-Stars launch from Casablanca where he is currently touring, the launch of the 91-day reality super-series is set to get off to a spectacular start.”
Since his breakout 2002 hit, Gimme the Light, the talented performer has been hard at work releasing four albums in quick succession.
From the success of his multi-platinum Grammy-winning classic album Dutty Rock he upped his game, launching the 2005 platinum smash The Trinity, and then went a step further with his latest offering Imperial Blaze.
The Kingston– born singer has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide and has collaborated with hip hop stars like 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes in the past.
Meanwhile Dziva also revealed that the Big Brother Africa house’s transformation from the tough, gritty revolution to the sensational All-Stars version is now complete.
“The new, refurbished house is comfortable and sophisticated with a hint of drama and wide open spaces counterbalanced by glossy touches, and subtly accentuated with patterned wallpaper and glowing lighting.
“The house is elegant while functional with the ever-present cameras and microphones incorporated into the overall design,” she said. The prize money will remain pegged at $200 000, just like in 2009, and will be taken away by the last remaining contestant in the Big Brother House.
