The organisers of Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality TV show, says its 2019 edition will commence after the February general elections.
This news medium reports that the commencement date is slightly different from last year’s edition which commenced in January with Miracle emerging winner of the contest.
However, based on the forthcoming elections next month, the much organisers decided to pause the anticipated reality TV show.
“Big Brother will still hold but because it’s a political year, we can’t really control to what extent what the housemates will say in the house and we don’t want it to become a tool that will heat up the polity.
“The show itself normally gets twisted so we don’t want to mix it up with politics in any way. Its supposed to be entertaining, we wouldn’t want it to be divisive in any way.
“If you notice, no religious activity gets discussed in the house too, if you want to pray you can pray, we don’t want anyone to be forced to do it or divide Nigerians along those lines. So after the elections and inaugurations, it’ll happen.” The source said.
