2019 editions of Big Brother Naija reality show is scheduled to kick start after the forthcoming general elections in February.
According to a report, the Payporte (official sponsors of the reality show) confirmed that, “Big Brother will still hold but because its a political year, we can not really control to what extent what the housemates will say in the house and we dont want it to become a tool that will heat up the polity.”
“The show itself normally gets twisted so we don’t want to mix it up with politics in anyway. Its supposed to be entertaining, we wouldn’t want it to be divisive in anyway. If you notice, no religious activity gets discussed in the house too, if you want to pray you can pray, we don’t want anyone to be forced to do it or divide Nigerians along those lines. So after the elections and inaugurations, it’ll happen.”
The last edition of the show kicked off on January 28, 2018 and wrapped up in April with Miracle Ikechukwu emerging winner of the hotly contested reality show.
