Big Brother Naija returns after 10 years

The return of Big Brother Nigeria after 10 years off screens.


It will now be known as Big Brother Naija and is set to be screened from January 2017 on event channels.

As to whether this this show will be seen across Africa, indications are it may be. Managing Director, MultiChoice Nigeria, Mr. John Ugbe was quoted as saying:

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

The current reincarnation will be sponsored by Payporte with auditions set for 26 and 27 November. Adverts for the show have started running on some DStv channels.
