10 things to expect from Big Brother Naija Season Six
As we count down to the launch weekend where the host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will introduce the theme for the season, below are a few things to look forward to:
1. A Double Launch Show
Season 6 is starting off with the biggest twist yet. The show will launch for the first time ever across two evenings. The first part of the premiere will air on Saturday, July 24 while the second part will air on Sunday, July 25, 2021.
2. More interesting personalities
Big Brother has mastered the art of selecting the most exciting mix of people, and this year is no different. MultiChoice, the organisers of the show, promises that the housemates this season will be more interesting than fans have ever seen on the show before.
3. A brand new, exclusively packaged BBNaija show on Showmax
Showmax will broadcast an exclusive 30-minute show called The Buzz twice a week where viewers can get all the hidden action they may miss on other channels. The dedicated series will be a magazine-styled show with a host which will be released twice every week – on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
4. More engaging tasks
Big Brother Naija season 6 will have even more incredible and financially rewarding activities for the housemates.
5. A revamped BBNaija house
Biggie’s house is going to look completely different from the way it did last year. Expect new decor, new spaces, and even a surprise feature that has never appeared in other seasons. And like the previous season, the house is being completely designed by local artisans.
6. Fave Lock-In returns
The fan competition which was introduced last season is also making a comeback this season.
The Fave Lock-In competition will give 30 BBNaija fans a chance of winning N1m each when the housemate they ‘Lock-In’ wins the sixth season of the show. Fans will be able to lock in the contestant they believe will win between July 29 and August 2, 2021.
7. No SMS Voting
This year, all the voting will be done on the Big Brother Naija website and mobile site as well as on the MyDStv and MyGOtv apps.
8. Two new house currencies designed to be an integral part of the season’s gameplay
Biggie is retiring the old currencies used in the former seasons and will introduce two never-before-used currencies when the show premieres on Saturday.
9. Fans in the UK can watch the show online
Also, for the first time ever, BBNaija fans in the United Kingdom will have access to the live 24/7 show via the African online streaming service, Showmax.
10. More drama, more romance and more fan fights
As usual, there will be more drama among the housemates, alliances will be made, people will be hurt and betrayed. There will be also be racey romances and fights among housemates and their fans on the outside.
The 10-week-long reality TV show will follow the lives of strangers as they interact and compete with each other to win the grand prize.
