We have been so touched by all the support that we have received over the past few weeks on Housemates Salone TV Reality Show and for this we want to use this opportunity to say thanks to you all.
We started on a very challenging note yet we never lost hope in continuing our efforts to the deliver a great show.
We have delivered the biggest reality TV show yet, with the most incredible atmosphere, making our Housemates feel like the superstars they are. The Housemates show is not about money, fame or winning and losing but about bringing people together in the sprite of a United Sierra Leone and above all, engaging and empowering role models that our children would look up to.
Now, going home, it might be tough as the show comes to a close but we should be on the lookout for more to come as this is not the end of the journey on entertainment.
You have voted all through the show to keep your housemates going and we are pleased to let you know that the show has been a 100% voting process and it is only votes that have kept your housemates in the house all this period.
Whether you are a fan of housemates or don’t like the show at all, your comments and engagements from across the world have kept the show going and kept us all inspired and entertained.
All this while we keep learning from you as you made housemates a better show through your demonstration that indeed AYV, ‘na in salone sabi’.
We learnt that good things only happen when ordinary people get involved, get engaged and come together to deliver change.
We come to the end of the Housemates even more optimistic about our AYV media empire than when we started. Because we know Housemates has not only engaged so many people but has inspired so many, especially young people who have learnt that one needs not to be a superstar to do something great.
It is not good enough just to rely on the old ideas or foreign reality shows. We have also got to create our own new shows and that is what we are doing here at AYV.
Housemates Salone is our own show. The housemates weren’t perfect and nothing is ever perfect in this world. It is true that the Housemates made mistakes. At some points they had fierce arguments in the house. Thanks to our supporters and the efforts of everyone to keep the show going.
For the first time since the establishment of AYV, Housemates generated the highest number of viewers and massive votes from millions of viewers across the world.
In two months away from today, we will bring to the people of this country our next Reality TV Show “The Biggest Looser”.
And in four months, during the summer holidays we will again bring you the “Celebrity Housemates Salone Show” which will bring both national and international celebrities who have huge spotlight that follows them everywhere they go.
But the celebrities will not use that spotlight for their own glory or just to further their own fame. No, they will spend their time in the house to do great things and inspire a generation. So be part of another history.
And to all of you out there, every supporter who campaigned for their housemates, every fan who voted, every institution that contributed to the show, every staff at AYV who helped produced the show, every housemate who took part in the show, every fan who filled the venue at Paradise City during the weekly eviction; you are true friends of AYV and the best supporters anybody could ever hope for.
