COVID-19 In Africa: DStv To End Nigerian Dating Reality Show Early Due To COVID-19 Outbreak

M-Net West-Africa is ending its Ultimate Love dating reality show earlier than planned this Sunday the 29th of March 2020 because of the rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic across Africa.

Similar to Big Brother Germany which only revealed last week revealed to the housemates what has been happening in the world, M-Net and MultiChoice have not yet told the remaining Ultimate Love contestants in the studio house what has been happening in Nigeria and around the globe.

Ultimate Love was scheduled to end on the 5th of April, but producers have scrambled to conclude it a week earlier this Sunday after M-Net ordered it to shut down as soon as possible.

The final Ultimate Love voting lines were opened on Wednesday the 25th of March and will close today on Friday the 27th of March 2020.

Ultimate Love is a reality dating show that saw 16 strangers (8 women and eight men) enter a studio house to live together for eight weeks.

The show which started on the 9th of February this year, saw the audiences voting for their favourite couples each week with the pairs that had the lowest votes getting evicted from “Aunty’s Love Pad”.
