BSS back, much smaller ‘but better’

After a long wait and uncertainty, reality TV show Bongo Star Search (BSS) season 4 will finally be held, organisers announced this week.

Speaking at a news conference this week, the director of Benchmark Productions Rita Paulsen, said they had to weigh out several issues before they could hold the auditions.

Unlike the last season where 10 regions participated in the talent search show, this time around the regions have been reduced to only four.

“After looking at several pertinent issues we decided to hold auditions in only four regions this year,” she said.

She named the regions as Arusha, Dodoma, Mwanza and Dar es Salaam.

“We expect this season’s show to be better than any other that we have held in the past four occasions in terms of production, and even the prizes,” said Rita Paulsen without going into the details of the prizes.

Last year’s winner took home Sh25 million plus a recording deal.
