10-yrs after, Big Brother Nigeria returns

Nigeria’s own version of the Big Brother reality TV show is set to hit screens again 10-years after it first made a debut on air.

Now to be referred to as ‘Big Brother Naija’, and still based on the Big Brother TV series, an audition has been scheduled to hold in Lagos for prospective talents who seek a platform to showcase their capabilities.

Throwing more light on the reality TV show scheduled to air on dedicated event channels on DStv and GOtv in January 2017, Managing Director, MultiChoice Nigeria, Mr. John Ugbe said the comeback of the show is one of the ways the company is enhancing the quality and variety of content available on its platforms.

“Big Brother Africa was popular for its entertainment value and ability to showcase ordinary Africans from different walks of life. We decided to re-invent the reality show once again by bringing back the Nigerian version which we are confident will draw pan-African audiences for the same reasons that Big Brother Africa did”, said Ugbe.

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.
