Webcaster LindaIkeji TV (LITV) is seeking eligible single women to participate in the first season of its new reality show Hottest Bachelor Nigeria later this year.
Former Big Brother Naija housemate Bobai Bally Balat, aka Bally, will be the bachelor looking to select a wife. “I am looking for not just love but a special woman I can share the rest of my life with,” he said.
Twenty-five lucky ladies who are looking for love and possibly a life partner will compete with the hope of winning the heart of the hottest bachelor. Auditions are in progress and take place at the LITV offices in Lekki, Lagos.
Although the start date of the show has not yet been officially announced, it will start airing in 2018. LITV has more than 40 programmes and exclusive shows, including Gidi Girls, Oyinbo Wives of Lagos and Highway Girls of Eko.
LindaIkeji TV is preparing to launch a reality show that has been compared to hit format Big Brother.
Made in Gidi will see 12 contestants living together in a house but, unlike Big Brother, there will be no evictions and no winner.
LindaIkeji TV CEO Linda Ikeji said the show would feature “seven ladies and five young men all living in the same house. No phone, no laptop, no internet. No voting, no eviction, no winner. You’ve never seen anything like it. This is Lagos to the world.”
An airdate has yet to be confirmed but the show is expected to premiere on LindaIkeji TV soon.
Earlier this year, Ikeji confirmed other forthcoming reality shows including Gidi Girls, King Tonto, Oyinbo Wives of Lagos and Ajegunle with Love.
Web-based video channel LindaIkeji TV has released a trailer for forthcoming reality show Ajegunle With Love.
The original series will follow the lives of people born and bred in Ajegunle, a neighbourhood in Lagos. According to the network, Ajegunle With Love will focus on the drama, intrigue, poverty and hard work to be found in the town.
Joining the long list of reality programmes heading for the network this year, Ajegunle With Love will show the daily hustle of five individuals: singer Sunny Boy, barber Valiant, bar owner and security guard Jairo, footballer Lucia, and Harris, a graduate of Lagos State University and a teacher.
Ajegunle With Love is exclusive to LindaIkeji TV, is produced by Odega Shawa and has Linda Ikeji, CEO of LindaIkeji TV, as its creative and executive producer. Its release date has yet to be announced.
