The Nigeria reality TV show based on the Big Brother TV series will return to DStv and GOtv in January 2017. The show is now referred to as Big Brother Naija.
In the first edition of the show, twelve housemates vied for the coveted $100,000 prize money by performing various mental and physical tasks. At the end of a three-month stay in the house, Katung Aduwak emerged winner. The show also produced other notable stars such as Africa Magic’s Tinsel actor, Gideon Okeke, and TV personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
The comeback of the show is one of the ways MultiChoice Nigeria is enhancing the quality and variety of content available on its platforms and the show has been well developed following the successes of past seasons of Big Brother Africa. Big Brother Africa was popular for its entertainment value and ability to showcase ordinary Africans from different walks.
Auditions for Big Brother Naija will hold in Lagos on the 26th and 27th of November; more information on the show will be revealed in the coming weeks.
