BBNaija S6 premieres this weekend
The sixth season of reality show Big Brother Naija (aka BBNaija) will kick off this weekend with episodes on both Saturday and Sunday night.
The 10-week show is Nigeria’s adaptation of the 22-year-old Dutch format distributed by global production powerhouse Banijay. It features a group of strangers living together in isolation from the outside world, with housemates being evicted until the last one standing claims N90million (US$220,000) worth of prizes.
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will return to host the series, which airs on MultiChoice-owned channel Africa Magic.
John Ugbe, CEO of MultiChoice Nigeria, said: “With each season of BBNaija, we task ourselves with delivering great content that will take the excitement a notch higher and meet the entertainment needs of our customers. For this sixth season, we are pulling out all the stops to give our customers a show like never seen before from Nigeria, with end-to-end production best practices under global health and safety standards.”
It will air from 19.00 on DStv channel 198 and GOtv channel 29, with a simulcast on Africa Magic Showcase, Africa Magic Urban and Africa Magic Family.
According to MultiChoice, BBNaija fans in the UK will also have access to the live, 24/7 show via African online streaming service Showmax. There will be no SMS voting in this season’s show; voting will take place only via the web and the MyDStv and MYGOtv mobile apps.
