10 Years After, Big Brother Naija Returns

Big BrotherThe Big Brother Naija is set to return in January 2017 after a 10-year hiatus.

MultiChoice Nigeria Managing Director, John Ugbe disclosed this in Lagos on Wednesday. He noted that the return of the reality show was due to the popular demand by people who wanted it back.

“The show has been well developed following the successes of past seasons of Big Brother Africa. The Big Brother Africa is popular for its entertainment value and ability to showcase ordinary Africans from different walks of life.”

“It is one of the ways the company is enhancing quality and varieties of contents available on its platforms. We decided to re-invent BBA, the reality show, once again by bringing back the Nigerian version. We are confident that it will draw pan-African audiences for the same reasons that Big Brother Africa did.”

Auditions To Begin

Meanwhile, auditions for the returning Big Brother Naija will hold in Lagos on Nov. 26 and Nov. 27, 2016.

The show is set to educate, entertain and inform the Nigerian audience about the beauty of the culture and lifestyle of the people. It also involves various mental and physical tasks.

It is an offshoot of the Big Brother Africa TV series and will be aired on dedicated event channels on DStv and GOtv from January 2017.

Katung Aduwak won the $100,000 prize of the maiden edition in 2006. The show also produced other notable stars like Gideon Okeke, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu among others.
