Multichoice Nigeria, the organizers of BBNaija season 5 have revealed in one of their FAQs why they are organizing the 5th season of BBNaija despite the coronavirus pandemic.
This is their reason:
Many Nigerians are at home due to the restrictions necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Multichoice, their decision to stage the fifth edition of BBNaija is borne out of the need to provide compelling content that would get viewers entertained and at the same time, help achieve Government’s objective of social distancing to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.
BBNaija ranks as the most viewed non-sporting event on African television and regarded as one of Nigeria’s biggest entertainment exports outside of Nollywood. Multichoice is optimistic that this show will fulfill this need even as they guarantee that global best practices, precautions, and preventative measures will be followed throughout the season.
