Multichoice Nigeria has announced that season six of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show will begin on July 24.
Martin Mabutho, Multichoice Nigeria customer officer, broke the news this morning during a press briefing with journalists.
The reality show will premiere with two opening ceremonies on Saturday and Sunday and will air from 7 pm on DStv channel 198 and GOtv channel 29 with a simulcast on Africa Magic Showcase, Africa Magic Urban, and Africa Magic Family.
The organisers also disclosed that there will be no SMS voting for this season, adding that fans will now be able to vote for their favourite housemates for free on BBNaija’s official website and mobile app as well as on the MyDStv and MyGOtv apps.
This year’s edition of BBNaija will run for 72 days and end on October 3, 2021.
Multichoice Nigeria had earlier announced a whopping N90 million as the grand prize for the winner of season six.
This makes it the highest grand prize a winner of the reality show will be receiving — since the BBNaija debuted in 2006.
