The last edition of Big Brother Naija reality show was in January 2018, but the organizers decided to pause this year’s edition because of the 2019 election coming up next month.
It has now been reportedly confirmed by a source at Payporte (the official sponsors of the reality show), that,
‘Big Brother will still hold but because its a political year, we can’t really control to what extent what the housemates will say in the house and we don’t want it to become a tool that will heat up the polity‘.
The source went on to add that,
‘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‘.
Recall that the last edition wrapped up in April 2018 with Miracle Ikechukwu emerging winner of the hotly contested reality show.
