BONO stunned housemates on the African version of Big Brother - when he appeared on video screen to address them.

The legendary rocker was beamed to the house live from Dublin, which contains housemates from 14 different African nations.

"This is your Irish rock star fan, Bono. You are my big brothers and little sisters", he said.

The U2 front man spoke to the housemates about the garden which they have to cultivate over the course of the series, as part of the new campaign being run by his ONE charity.

"I hear you're growing and farming the future, and that the fruit is the hope and change that we're all hungry for", he told them.

The star finished up by telling the stunned housemates: "Big love, big respect from Dublin Ireland and everyone in the ONE campaign".

The housemates were elated by the appearance of the Irish rocker. One said: "I feel like I'm a star". While another added: "This is so surreal, I cannot believe it".

The African version of big brother is one of the most popular shows on the continent, attracting participants from 14 different countries and being broadcast in 47 countries.
