Confirming this development, Candice Fangueiro, Head of Content at Showmax, said: “Big Brother Naija has always attracted a large following outside Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

“This year, we decided to make the hugely popular show available to fans in the UK – whether they’re part of the Nigerian diaspora or are among the many fans of this addictive reality series format.”

Season 6 will again be hosted by Season 1 contestant Ebuka Obi-Unchendu, who has hosted the reality show since 2017, the statement adds.

Big Brother Naija, formerly known as Big Brother Nigeria, is a Nigerian reality competition television series, based on the Big Brother television franchise, in which, contestants live in an isolated house and compete for a large cash prize and other material prizes, at the end of the show by avoiding being evicted from the house by viewers who vote for their favourite housemates to remain in the show.
