This year’s edition of Big BBNaija began with the usual fanfare, with lawyer and media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu as host.
There are noticeable changes in this year’s edition of BBNaija. For instance, where previous editions of the show ran for twelve weeks or 90 days, the current and fourth edition of the show, tagged Pepper Dem, will run for fourteen weeks or 99 days.
According to the show organizers, the decision to extend the length of the show was taken based on the personality of the housemates, which they describes as interesting.
The housemates for this year’s edition are Avala, Diane, Ella, Esther, Frodd, Gedoni, Ike, Isilomo, Jackye, Jeff, Khafi, Kimoprah, Mercy, Mike, Nelson, Omoshola, Seyi, Sir Dee, Tacha, Thelma and Tuoyo.
The housemates, who introduced themselves at the show’s prelude, will be competing for a grand price of 60 million.
Before the show commenced, the likes of “Ijaya” crooner Zlatan, “Anybody” mastermind Burna Boy and “Sugar Money” Teni entertained guests, including former housemates ot BBNaij. The scene was electrifying.
This year’s edition moves from South Africa to Lagos. The new BBNaija house is an expansive place with ultra modern facilities and even the organizers are chuffed about it, sharing pictures of the house on Instagram, while describing is as the “best #BBNaija House in the history of ever!”
No one is disputing their claims, though. Social media peeps have been much too concerned with campaigning for their favourite housemates.
This year’s edition of BBnaija will air on DStv, GOtv Max and GOtv Plus. Also, Africa Magic website will show eight daily highlights while BBNaija YouTube channel will show a meagre two.
