Earlier in May, popular Nigerian reality show, Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) announced the opening for video submissions for the upcoming season of the show.
Being the second trial of a virtual audition (one housemate was selected via online auditions last year) the 2020 auditions are planned to span ten days, as against two days required for physical auditions.
Interested contestants are expected to submit a two-minute video stating why they should be admitted.
This round of auditions will produce a new set of housemates for Season 5 of the TV sensation that airs on cable channels across Africa for a little over 90 days.
BBNaija, the export of the popular Big Brother franchise, has a reputation for holding the attention of Nigerians for as long as it airs.
While the show lasts, viewers are allowed to support their favourite housemates by voting. In some cases, fans’ support become full-blown altercations on social media.
Housemates in a personality war try to make it through the weekly evictions and voting, to eventually bag the ₦60 million ($155,000) worth of prizes.
