The producers of Big Brother Naija – which recently won a Nigerian Entertainment Award for best TV show of 2017 – believe the new season will be more exhilarating and entertaining than ever following the success of season two on MultiChoice-owned DStv and GOtv this year.
The increase in audition locations from three to six highlights the growing popularity and acceptance that Big Brother Naija gained with its second season, which came 11 years after the show's first run.
Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, regional director at broadcaster M-Net West Africa, said: "Around the globe, the Big Brother format remains one of the most popular genres of entertainment and this is also the case in Nigeria.
"The previous edition of Big Brother Nigeria was one of the most successful reality shows not just in Nigeria but around the continent, with a record number of votes [from viewers to evict housemates] and many of the housemates going on to pursue careers in entertainment. We are delighted to have the show return for a third edition and cannot wait for our audiences to once again tune in to experience all of the exciting entertainment the show is sure to provide."
Sponsored by popular online shopping platform PayPorte, Big Brother Naija season three will see contestants go through the emotional roller-coaster of sharing a house together, rewarding the last one standing with N45 million worth of prizes. The third season will premiere in 2018 after the selection process is complete.
