It’s usually a night of joy and laughter for those that make it to the House as it also is of pain, grief and heartthrobs for those that don’t.

For this year’s edition, ‘de game don gbodo’ in the Reality-TV show as it is all about Sierra Leone shining in the international arena with a galaxy of succulent ladies from across the globe pouring in to be part of the “No Woman No Cry” Season 2 Edition and hope to walk away with $50,000 winner’s cash prize! Can you make me figure out what would you really do with $50k at this moment?
Well, all this menu will fit the plates if by October COVID would have been dead and forgotten.

The housemates, the fans and everyone cannot wait for the show to start later this year in October. Who are your favourite housemates and who are you placing your money on?
It is, however, going to be a marathon race for lucky personalities from different countries. Some these countries that have bigger populations like Nigeria with over 150 million people, India with over a billion, United States with over 300 people.
What and how will the housemate’s country of origin and financial resources influence the winner from those affluence countries as against countries like The Gambia with little over 2 million people or Sierra Leone with over 7 million people?
But with COVID 19 on the rampage, many are critical of the success of the show considering the world on lockdown. How will the show go on? What is going to happen to international housemates? How will international viewers and supporters go to vote? What are the precautionary measures in place bringing together different people?
These and several other questions remain unanswered but there is optimism that Corona will be before “No Woman No Cry.”by
