BBNaija 2019 to be staged in Nigeria — not S’Africa, dates for auditions revealed


The fourth season of Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) will be staged in Nigeria, the organisers have announced.

It will be the first time the reality television show will be shot outside South Africa.

During the second season of the show, Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, had directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to investigate why it was being staged in South Africa.

The minister had said the NBC should determine whether Multichoice, by shooting the show in South Africa, breached the Nigerian Broadcasting Code.

During a press conference on Tuesday, the organisers said auditions for the fourth season will be held on February 1 and 2.

The auditions will take place in eight locations; Lagos, Abuja, Warri, Benin, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Calabar and Enugu.
