Big Brother Naija

The Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) show is set to return to the screens for the fourth season and this season is going to be different as it will be shot in Nigeria.

It will be the first time the show will be staged outside South Africa as the organizers have announced significant changes to the reality show.

Nigerians have always slammed the organizers of the show for staging it outside of Nigeria despite the show being a Nigerian show.

During the second season of the show, Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, had directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to investigate why it was being staged in South Africa.

The minister had said the NBC should determine whether Multichoice, by shooting the show in South Africa, breached the Nigerian Broadcasting Code.

During a press conference on Tuesday, the organisers said auditions for the fourth season will be held on February 1 and 2.

The auditions will take place in eight locations; Lagos, Abuja, Warri, Benin, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Calabar and Enugu.

Also, there has been a change of sponsor for the show as Big Brother Naija has parted ways with online store, Payporte and made betting platform, Bet9ja, the new lead sponsor of the reality show.

Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, media personality and event compere, will return as the host of season four.

The reality show is expected to air after the 2019 elections.

Miracle Igbokwe emerged winner of the 2018 edition, taking home the N45 million grand prize and a sports utility vehicle.

Efe Ejeba won the 2017 edition of the reality show.
