Big Brother Mzansi is back and South Africans are ecstatic. The incredibly popular reality show came to a temporary halt after its season finale on 18 May, 2015, due to supposed cash constraints, a lack of sponsorships and reports of misconduct.
News of the show's return made its way to Twitter and with the first episode airing on Sunday, 23 January, a fan favourite emerged to the surprise of many viewers.
24-Year-old, Naledi Mogadime, better known as Nale, quickly captured the support of South Africans along with fellow contestant Libo Njomba who are both dominating trends online.
Supporters are excited about their returns and have been using #BigBrotherMzansi to discuss the show.
