Ten year after its first and last edition was held, the Nigeria Reality TV show based on the Big Brother TV series is returning in January 2017.

In the first edition of the show, 12 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.

Speaking on the return of the show, John Ugbe, Managing Director, MultiChoice Nigeria, said: “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 comeback of the show has been described as one of the ways MultiChoice Nigeria is enhancing the quality and variety of content available on its platforms and the new show has been well developed following the successes of past seasons of Big Brother Africa.

Big Brother Africa was popular for its entertainment value and ability to showcase ordinary Africans from different walks.

Auditions for Big Brother Naija will hold in Lagos on the 26 and 27 November.

    Let them increase rates in Nigeria and see how Nigerians will begin to downgrade their packages for the cheapest. With the way you see DSTV dishes everywhere, I dont think they have less than 10 million subscribers across Nigeria. Nothing in their story mentions so many channels that are being withdrawn by their owners. Yet the shylocks from SOuth Africa want Nigerians to even pay more. Nigerians will teach una lesson!
