The organisers of Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality TV show, says its 2019 edition will commence after the February general elections.
Naija News learned that the commencement date was disclosed by a source at Payporte (the official sponsors of the reality show) who preferred to be kept anonymous.
This news medium reports that the commencement date is slightly different from last year’s edition which commenced in January with Miracle emerging winner of the contest.
However, based on the forthcoming elections next month, the much organisers decided to pause the anticipated reality TV show.
“Big Brother will still hold but because it’s 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 show itself normally gets twisted so we don’t want to mix it up with politics in any way. Its supposed to be entertaining, we wouldn’t want it to be divisive in any way.
