The Big Brother show is back in Nigeria after an explosive season last year and housemates would be staying at the Big Brother House for the next twelve weeks to entertain TV viewers across Africa and beyond.
Bet9ja is the major sponsor of this years show, with twenty-one housemates battling for N60 million worth of prizes as announced earlier by the organizer, M-Net West Africa
The BBNaija 2019 ‘Forget Wahala’ will be filmed in Lagos, Nigeria for a period of 90 days. That is a wonderful development, and we can’t wait to see how the organizers handle the change in venue.
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will return as the host of the reality TV show and the eviction show. This never seemed like it would change anytime soon.
The BBNaija 2019 house will host more Nigerian celebrity guests visiting the housemates. This is obviously because it is being produced in Nigeria, making it easier for celebrities to storm the house.
