Since its very first season in 2006, MultiChoice’s BBNaija reality show has redefined the concept of prize winning. Each year, audiences across Africa are wowed by the sheer size and spectacle of the winnings available to the last housemate standing. This year is no different; in fact, this year’s prize money will “wow” people the most!
This year, the winning BBNaija housemate will take home a grand N85 million worth of prizes. That’s right – N85million, substantially more than the N60 million won by Mercy Eke last season. This year’s prize also includes a real-estate gift – the first for any Big Brother season, ever.
The Chief Executive Officer, MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe explained that this fifth season is very important because it marks a major milestone for the landmark reality TV series. He said, “We are making this season significant by not only increasing the winnings but by also implementing other creative and innovative ways to ensure the show provides the premium entertainment its renowned for, especially during these Covid-19 times.”
The winner will walk away with a N30m cash prize; a two-bedroom apartment courtesy Revolution Plus; a top of the range SUV from Nigerian automaker, Innoson Motors; a trip to Dublin courtesy Guinness; home appliances courtesy Scanfrost; a trip to Dubai packaged by Travelbeta; a year’s supply of Indomie noodles, Munch it and Colgate toothpaste; a year’s supply of Pepsi, a branded chiller and a trip to watch the UEFA Champions League finale; and a brand new Oppo mobile smartphone.
Meanwhile, MultiChoice will in the coming days reveal other surprises for viewers and fans of the show.
