The show will last for three months as it is slated to begin on January 15 and end on April 2, 2023.
Nigerians have continued to express worries about youth involvement in the forthcoming 2023 elections slated between February and March, following the interest the reality television show often generates.
Addressing the issue, during the launch of Big Brother Titans, Ebuka stated that ”Nigerian youths are very capable of going out to vote and also coming back to watch whatever they want to watch.”
Unlike other editions, the BBTitans is to take place in South Africa and will also have two show hosts Ebuka Uchendu alongside South Africa’s Lawrence Maleka.
The highly anticipated special ‘Big Brother Titans’ TV reality show that will feature housemates from Nigeria and South Africa will premiere on January 15, 2023, and the winner will get $100,000 (over N50,000 million).
The organiser, MultiChoice Nigeria, made the announcement on Thursday, December 15, 2022, at a media parley in Lagos.
Announcing the commencement of the show and prize money, the Chief Executive Officer, MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, disclosed that the BBTitans edition will run for 72 days, and the winner will cart home a prize of $100,000 cash.
He said, “The ‘Big Brother Titans’ is a special edition of the widely loved Big Brother show.
This special edition is a fusion of two TV phenomena BBNaija and BB Mzansi. We are bringing housemates from two giant nations Nigeria and South Africa, under one roof, to give African entertainment audiences a show of intense drama like never before.
We are telling our audience to be ready for the biggest takeover on TV starting from January 15. It promises an abundance of Nigerian and South African swag, banter, romance, and everything in between.
