The announcement was made by the organisers- Multichoice Nigeria, at a media Harley held in Lagos on Thursday.
A special edition of the Big Brother Naija reality TV show which will feature housemates from Nigeria and South Africa will premiere on January 15, 2023.
The show which is titled “Big Brother Titans” is the first edition of the show which will involve two countries, with the winner going home with a whooping sum of $100,000 (N50 million).
According to the Chief Executive Officer of Multichoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, the show would run for 72 days, with the hope of ‘bringing a show with intense drama’ to their audience.
“The ‘Big Brother Titans’ is a special edition of the widely loved Big Brother show. This special edition is a fusion of two TV phenomena- BBNaija and BB Mzansi.
“We are bringing housemates from two giant nations- Nigeria and South Africa, under one roof, to give African entertainment audiences a show of intense drama like never before. We are telling our audience to be ready for the biggest takeover on TV starting from January 15. It promises an abundance of Nigerian and South African swag, banter, romance, and everything in between.
“This is a meeting of the Titans, and the winner will take home a sum of $100,000 cash and other amazing prizes. As usual, the viewers on DStv and GOtv will be able to vote and keep their favourite housemates on the show. The winner will also be determined by viewers’ votes across Africa after 72 days.”
