The organisers of Big Brother Naija Season 6 have said that the N90m (£158,000) grand prize for the reality show is the highest ever in the history of the programme.
They also note that the reality show will be streaming in the United Kingdom for the first time ever.
A Press statement signed by Public Relations Officer , Jennifer Ochieng, states that the show will be available on African streaming service Showmax.
It notes that “20 housemates isolated in one house for 10 weeks will battle for a grand prize N90m (£158,000),” adding, “the prize is the highest in the show’s history.”
The show will feature a special double launch on Saturday, 24 July and Sunday 25 July 2021, Ochieng stated.
Confirming this development, Candice Fangueiro, Head of Content at Showmax, said: “Big Brother Naija has always attracted a large following outside Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
“This year, we decided to make the hugely popular show available to fans in the UK – whether they’re part of the Nigerian diaspora or are among the many fans of this addictive reality series format.”
Season 6 will again be hosted by Season 1 contestant Ebuka Obi-Unchendu, who has hosted the reality show since 2017, the statement adds.
