At a media parley in Lagos during the week, the company announced that the reality show will be premiered on January 15, 2023, and the winner will get $100,000 (over N50m).
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.
“This is a meeting of the Titans, and the winner will take home a sum of $100,000 cash and other amazing prizes. As usual, the viewers on DStv and GOtv will be able to vote and keep their favourite housemates on the show. The winner will also be determined by viewers’ votes across Africa after 72 days.”
