Malawi’s first ever reality show is up, with the inaugural television series starting at the end of March and running up to April end.
The all-female contest which has been dubbed the Sisters House, aims at crowning a woman who is deemed to be fit to be the face and voice of women in the country.
The winner will highlight and address key challenges facing women across the country.
“The month-long reality series will be shot at a location in Lilongwe where currently works are underway to refurbish a house in one of the uptown suburbs which will house 12 contestants who will be selected through auditions to be held throughout the country,” said one of the organisers Steven Jilana.
He added: “The contestants will outwit each through different tasks and assignments which they will be given by organisers and will be nominating each other for the public to decide by SMS voting, who should win at the end of it all. We are keeping the top prize under wraps until we finalise agreements with sponsors.”
A one-hour highlight show of each day will be beamed on one of the local televisions channels for the public to keep audiences abreast of the show.
“We are yet to make a decision as to which channel we should settle for either MBC or Luso TV.
“Other than that, we will have a Twitter hash tag as well as a Facebook page for minute by minute
updates of the drama, action, twists and turns of the game. We already have a website, all to give the props necessary for such kind of a story,” he explained.
Under the trademark Women Ambassador, this year’s Sisters House will be under the theme Uniting for Women.
