According to the organisers, this year, which has been tagged the ‘All-Star’ edition, will witness the return of fan favourites from past editions of the show, while the grand prize has been increased to a whooping N120m.
Speaking during a media parley on Friday, the Chief Executive Officer of Multichoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, stated that fans of the show would, as in the past, decide which of the housemates to be evicted when the show eventually starts on Sunday, July 23.
The company’s Executive Head of Content and West Africa Channels, Busola Tejumola, added that the show would last for 70 days.
She said, “We are excited to bring you a refreshed season of Big Brother Naija. I am sure you all have noticed the buzz on social media and all the speculations about the eighth season of this well-loved show. We can confirm to you today that this will be the All-Star Edition.”
