The 2020 season of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality TV show is now expected to commence on July 19.
The organisers of the much anticipated reality show broke the news on its official Twitter page on Monday.
In May, Multichoice Nigeria had commenced online auditions for the fifth edition of the show, calling for video entries which often precede the selection of prospective housemates.
Those seeking a spot in this year’s edition were also informed about the five requirements they will need to qualify for the auditions.
“Participate in the BBN auditions by simply curating a 2-minute video motivating why you deserve to be in the #BBNaija House. Simple right? Entries open from 20th – 30th May 2020,” the show host had written on the microblogging platform.
The latest edition would be coming on heels of the successes recorded during the show’s first four editions, the last of which saw Mercy Eke win the grand prize of N60 million.
It also comes against the backdrop of a reunion organised for former housemates of the reality TV show.
The fourth season of the show, dubbed ‘Pepper Dem’ edition, was characterised by several controversies including a heated battle between Eke and Tacha Akide, the most-talked about housemates.
