In a post shared on the official Instagram page of DSTV on Monday, June 3, 2019, indicates that the much anticipated Nigerian Reality TV show will kick off on Sunday, June 30, 2019.
“Okay! We CAN’T wait no more!😤 #BBNaija2019 storms your screens on June 30th!🔥 *Available on all DStv packages* Proudly sponsored by @bet9jaig,” the post reads.
Speaking on the announcement, the CEO of MultiChoice Nigeria, Mr. John Ugbe said:
“The Big Brother franchise remains one of the most exciting content options available to viewers across the world. Big Brother Naija, which is easily the most popular version in Africa, is finally here and for the first time since 2006, the show will be hosted in Nigeria. Our viewers should expect the very best of entertainment, intrigue and drama, all delivered with excellent production standards straight from a house here in Nigeria.”
It would be recalled that a few weeks ago, the organisers of the reality TV show announced that it was going to premiere in June but as at that time, a specific date wasn’t given.
Organisers of Big Brother Naija announced June 2019 as the kick off of the season 4 of the reality TV show. Scheduled to be filmed in Nigeria, Pulse was reliably informed that the fourth season will last 90 days. However, further details have been kept away from the public.
On Friday, May 2, 2019, Multichoice Nigeria teased the audience with a possible theme for the fourth edition, ‘Forget Wahala.’ The first edition was tagged Big Brother Nigeria. The second edition has the theme, ‘See Gobe,’ while the third edition was tagged ‘Double Wahala.’
