The most-anticipated television reality show, Big Brother Titans, began with a lot of excitement on Sunday (today). Unlike the usual Big Brother Naija format that features only Nigerians, and Big Brother Africa, which has housemates from across the continent, the new Show is open to only Nigerians and South Africans.

The first housemate to be unveiled was a 25-year-old South African female called Khosi who described herself as fun-loving, but ‘serious’.

The second was a Nigerian, Yemi Cregx, who said he was looking forward to learning more about South Africans in the course of the Show.

Other South African housemates are Juicy Jay, Nelisa, Mmeli, Khosi, Ipeleng, Thabang, Yaya, Khehla, Tsatii, and Justin.

Nigerian housemates are Olivia, Blaqboy, Nana, Marvin, Jaypee, Ebubu, Jenni O, Kanaga, and Yvonne.

Expectedly, there has been a lot of buzz about the show, especially as it comes at a time when Nigeria is preparing for critical general elections.

John Ugbe, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Multi-Choice Nigeria,  organisers of the Show, said its popularity makes it practically inevitable to pair Nigerians and South Africans in one house.

Reacting to criticism that the Show might distract Nigerian youths from the forthcoming general elections, he maintained that Nigerian youths knew their priorities.

He said: “As two of the biggest economies in Africa, it was only a matter of time before something like this would come up. Just like there has been a clash of music genres such as afrobeats (Nigeria) and amapiano (South Africa), there was bound to be something of this nature.”

In the course of the show, there was also an announcement by the Independent National Electoral Commission educating Nigerians on the process of collecting their permanent voter cards.

The reality show will run for 72 days (over 10 weeks). It also retains some of the Big Brother features, such as diary sessions, Head of House games, Friday night parties, and tasks.

It will be co-hosted by Nigerian, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, and Lawrence Maleke, a South African.
Guests at the live screening of the show include Saga, Dorathy Bachor and Gerald (Nigerian Idol winner). Self-acclaimed Koko master, D’banj also performed at the event.

The last edition of BBN (Level Up) aired from July 23 to October 2, 2022. It was won by Phyna, and she smiled to the bank with a grand prize of N100m; while the last BBA held almost a decade ago in 2014. The winner, Tayo Faniran (Nigerian) went home with $300,000 worth of prizes.
