BBNaija 2019: BET9JA becomes new title sponsor as PAYPORTE takes a bow out + for the first time to be staged inside Nigeria…as Ebuka returns as host

Big Brother Naija has parted ways with online store, Payporte and now welcomes Bet9ja (a betting platform) as the new lead sponsor of the reality show.

We told you recently that the fourth season of Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) will be staged in Nigeria (first time the reality television show will be shot outside South Africa).

It will be remembered that during the second season of the show, Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, had directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to investigate why it was being staged in South Africa. The minister had said the NBC should determine whether Multichoice, by shooting the show in South Africa, breached the Nigerian Broadcasting Code.

Also let us inform that this year’s auditions will be held on February 1 and 2; thus, take place in eight locations: Lagos, Abuja, Warri, Benin, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Calabar and Enugu.

The reality show is expected to air after the 2019 elections with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu returning as the host.

In 2018, Miracle Igbokwe emerged winner, taking home the N45 million grand prize and a sports utility brand new car.
