Multichoice Nigeria has announced a new and completely different season of Big Brother.
Unlike Big Brother Naija which brings housemates together exclusively from Nigeria and Big Brother Mzansi which brings housemates together from South Africa only, the new season of Big Brother will bring together contestants from Nigeria and South Africa.
“For the big rivalry on the African continent, we are bringing viewers a Big Brother show like no other: a ‘contest’ between housemates from Nigeria and South Africa – in one house.
“This Big Brother edition will have housemates from the two giants of Africa, Nigeria, and South Africa, together in one house. The date for the show will be announced in due course,” CEO of MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe said.
The Executive Head of Content, MultiChoice Nigeria, Dr. Busola Tejumola, added that customers will be spoiled for choice in the coming months, as the company will be unveiling a chain of new programs on its Africa Magic channels.
Highlighting some of the new content customers can look out for, Dr. Busola said popular comedy series, The Johnsons, will return for the new season which will honour the show’s late cast, Ada Ameh (God rest her soul), known on the show as Emu Akpo Johnson.
Speaking further, she said customers should look out for a new 260-episode local series ‘The Covenant’, and another 260-episode local series titled ‘Itura’, starting from October 3 on Africa Magic Showcase. She added that the popular Africa Magic series, ‘Tinsel’, and ‘The Rishantes’, will also make a return in a few weeks.
