The winners of the first season of reality show Ultimate Love have been revealed after the show’s early conclusion.
Rosie and Kachi, jointly known as Roksie, won the show, which was hosted by Nollywood actor Dakore Egbuson-Akande and creative director Oluwaseun Olaniyan.
It began with 16 contestants living together in a secluded venue for eight weeks while they get to know each other, forge relationships and complete challenges set out for them. They then decide whether they want to propose to their partner.
Rosie accepted Kachi’s proposal during the live finale on Sunday, which came sooner than scheduled because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The pair will be given a sponsored traditional wedding and a dream home if they get married, in addition to the cash prize they automatically receive for winning the show.
Pay TV operator MultiChoice has decided to cut short reality show Ultimate Love because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The show began airing on February 9 and had been due to run for eight weeks, but will now come to an end this Sunday. Today is the last day viewers can vote on the series.
MultiChoice said: “While we know the show has garnered appreciable fans and viewers across Africa, it has become pertinent for us to join the ongoing efforts by the government and global public health officials to flatten the curve against the coronavirus.”
The concluding part of the show will be broadcast on DStv channel 198 and GOtv channel 29.
MultiChoice Nigeria has unveiled a new relationship-focused reality show, auditions for which are being held this month.
Ultimate Love will see eight single men living with eight single women in a house in an isolated location for two months, with the participants hoping to find life-long love.
Paired up based on mutual attraction, the contestants will engage in series of locally inspired activities as they attempt to emerge as the ultimate couple.
Similarly to Big Brother, the housemates will be closely monitored by live television cameras and personal microphones as they interact daily with a counsellor.
Viewers will have the opportunity to vote off their least favourite couple on a weekly basis, while the winning couple will be rewarded with a lavish traditional wedding ceremony and a fully furnished home, among other prizes.
Single men and women aged 23 and above who have an active subscription to DStv or GOtv can register to take part in Ultimate Love by clicking here. Auditions are being held from November 22 to 30.
MultiChoice Nigeria CEO John Ugbe said: “Reality TV shows are immensely popular because they showcase real people experiencing real-life situations, thus connecting with viewers and fans on a personal and relatable level. There are fewer things realer than love, and Ultimate Love, our new and exciting reality show, celebrates this.
The show will air live, 24/7 on all DStv and select GOtv packages starting February 2020.
