The fifth season of Nigeria’s biggest reality show, BBNaija, is about to start and the grand prize has been announced.
MultiChoice Nigeria, the organizers of Big Brother Nigeria, has announced that season 5 will see the winner walk away with N85 million.
The information was made known on Monday, July 13, 2020, and the breakdown of the grand prize for BBNaija season 5 includes N30 million cash prize, a two-bedroom apartment courtesy Revolution Plus, a top of the range SUV from Nigerian automaker Innoson Motors, a trip to Dublin courtesy Guinness, home appliances courtesy Scanfrost.
Others are a trip to Dubai packages by Travelbeta, a year’s supply of Indomie noodles, Munch it, and Colgate toothpaste, a year’s supply of Pepsi, a branded chiller, a trip to watch the UEFA Champions League finale, and a brand new Oppo mobile smartphone.
John Ugbe, CEO, MultiChoice Nigeria, said:
The fifth season of BBNaija marks a major milestone in the reality TV series. We are making this season significant by not only increasing the winnings but also implementing other creative and innovative ways to ensure the show lives up to the premium entertainment especially during the current pandemic.”
Meanwhile, the organizers also revealed that they are taking precautions to keep the housemates safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Asides the rigorous health screenings, MultiChoice also plans to disinfect the house frequently during the course of the show, adding that there will be no live audience at the Sunday eviction show and that external visitors like celebrities and BBNaija Ninjas will not be part of the show this year.
Also, measures will be put in place to ensure minimal contact with outsiders once the housemates enter the house.
“The production crew will work in socially distanced shifts. There will be no live audience at the Sunday night eviction shows,” they stated.
Big Brother Naija 2020 is primed to begin on July 19, 2020. Last year, BBNaija winner Mercy Eke won the N30 million prize money, in addition to other gifts.
