BBNaija 2022: All You Need to Know About Season 7

BBNaija also called ‘Big Brother Naija’ is a reality TV show in which contestants camp in an isolated, camera monitored house for a specified number of days, competing for a large cash prize by avoiding being evicted through viewers’ votes.

Brief History of BBNaija

Multichoice, the owners of the cable television network DSTV and GOTV, the organizers of the BBNaija, aired the first edition of the show tagged ‘Big Brother Nigeria’, on March 5, 2006, on DSTV channel 37.

The show hosted 12 original housemates for 92 days in South Africa before a plot twist saw two other contestants introduced on day 23 of the show. 

The 12 original housemates were, Ify, Ebuka, Chinedu, Francisca, Gideon, Helen, Ichemeta, Frank, Joan, Joseph, Maureen and Yinka before Katung and Sandy joined. 

The season came to an end on June 4, 2006, as Katung Aduwak became the first winner of the show, with a cash prize of $100,000.

The show has since held five more seasons, with the second season airing 11 years after the first successful season.

Season 2 (2017) and Season 3 (2018) of the show were also hosted in South Africa and themed ‘See Gobbe’ and ‘Double Wahala’. 

The two seasons respectively were won by Efe Ejeba, an entertainer, and Igbokwe Miracle, a professional pilot.

The Big Brother house was finally moved to Lagos, Nigeria, for the fourth season in 2019, after much clamour from fans saying it is inappropriate for a country-themed show to hold outside its shores.

The fourth season tagged ‘Pepper Dem’, witnessed its first female winner Mercy Eke after a drama-filled season.
