Background

Twists

Naija4 Potentials
  • Public Selects Final Housemate: For the first time in the franchise history, the public will get to audition online for the last spot in the house. Auditionees will be given three days to enter and then fans will be able to vote via the website.[1] It was later revealed that ten personalities were chosen and the audience were able to vote between March 21-31, 2019 for one personality to enter the house..[2] The selected housemate's real identity would not be revealed to the viewers.
  • Veto Power Game of Chance: The winner of the veto power would have the power to save another housemate from eviction and replace the saved housemate with another housemate. However, the winner of the veto wouldn't be immune from nominations. In addition to that, the HOH's only power would be immunity, due to the HOH's normal power consisting of the new power that the Veto Power Holder possesses.
  • Bet9ja Coins: Similar to Big Brother 19 (UK), the housemates would be able to compete in tasks to earn coins.[3]
    • Week 1 Eviction: During Week 1, the housemate with the lowest amount of Bet9ja Coins would be evicted from the game.
  • Additional Housemates: On Day 31, two extra housemates, Venita Akpofure and Elozonam Ogbolu, entered the game. The next day, on Day 32, two more housemates, named Enkay Nkechinyere and Joe Abdallah, entered the house. Finally, on Day 33, a housemate named Cindy Okafor entered the game.

Controversies

Petition to Ban the Show

The Muslim Rights Concern, also known as MURIC, wrote a petition to the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, asking for Big Brother Naija to stop airing and to be banned. He quoted, "We are being forcibly dragged to a world of nudity, shamelessness and open promiscuity. Inmates of BBNaija kiss, romance and engage in sex openly. BBNaija is bohemian, anti-social, crude and immoral. It constitutes a potent danger to every home. BBNaija is satanic. It is unacceptable. “Where are our norms and values? Is it part of African culture to engage in sex in the open? Where are the authorities? Is the Ministry of Information and Culture sleeping? Is the National Orientation Agency on sabbatical? Who will protect our children from this despicable onslaught? Who did this to Nigeria? “This reality show is dragging our children into a life of moral debauchery. It is robbing them of the last vestiges of honour. It is deleting the word ‘shame’ from their vocabulary. BB Naija has alienated our youth from the elders. A yawning lacuna now exists between the young and the old. Irreversible social crisis looms."[4]

Khafi Kareem

Khafi made international headlines after entering the Big Brother Naija house, as it was reported by British tabloid, The Sun, that she had been denied permission by the Met Police to take time off to appear in the show. Khafi's representation denied these claims and accused them of running a story of sensationalised events, whilst also threatening legal action. Following a sexual encounter with fellow housemate, Ekpata Gedoni, an internal investigation due to a rule within the Met Police that officers are obligated to behave professionally, whether on duty or off duty.[5]
