Multichoice Nigeria has revealed the official date for the commencement of 2021 Big Brother Naija season 6 reality show.
The organisers revealed the upcoming edition will have two opening shows scheduled for Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25, 2021.
Multichoice Head of Marketing, Martin Mabutho announced the new developments ahead of the 2021 edition.
This fresh move, Mabutho said, is in the organisers’ bid to make the show bigger than the fifth edition.
Contrary to usual practice, Mabutho announced that SMS voting for Housemates will not be available for the sixth edition as all voting will be conducted online as well as through the DStv and GOtv mobile applications.
Bisola Tejumola, Multichoice Head of Content West Africa, also announced that the winner will be going home with a grand prize of N90 million.
Tejumola said further the show will have a new feature in the house, two new currencies as well as housemates.
The BBNaija 6 will, according to the organisers, run for 72 days – between July 24 to October 3.
Given the prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic, MultiChoice Nigeria has assured viewers that all safety precautions will be duly adhered to.
