According to John Ugbe, Managing Director of MultiChoice Nigeria, popular reality show Big Brother Nigeria will return in January 2017.
Ugbe told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Wednesday that the return of the show was based on popular demand by people who wanted it back.
According to him, “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 will hold in Lagos on Nov. 26 and Nov. 27, 2016. The return of Big Brother Nigeria after a 10-year break would be interesting to see.
The show will be aired on dedicated event channels on DStv and GOtv in January 2017.
