SAN FRANCISCO, January 15, (THEWILL) – The fourth season (2019) of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality television show will be staged in Nigeria, the organisers announced on Tuesday in Lagos.
It will be the first time the reality television show will be shot outside South Africa since its inception.
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 shot in South Africa.
However, the organisers went ahead to stage the third season in South Africa citing technical difficulties in Nigeria.
Auditions for the fourth season will be held on February 1 and 2.
It will take place in eight locations; Lagos, Abuja, Warri, Benin, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Calabar and Enugu.
