In a statement issued on Thursday, John Ugbe, Chief Executive Officer of Multichoice Nigeria, stated that the season, suitably titled ‘Big Brother Titans,’ would be a hybrid of Big Brother Naija and Big Brother Mzansi.
According to Ugbe, this indicates that auditions were available to Nigerians and South Africans aged 21 and up. Big Brother Titans will feature new contestants who must be Nigerian or South African citizens with appropriate identity, according to Ugbe.
“Auditions for Big Brother Titans, commences from Oct. 6 to Oct. 22.
“All interested and eligible people must record a two-minute video of themselves stating why Big Brother should pick them to be a Big Brother Titan housemate.
“This video must then be uploaded to http://mnet.tv/bigbrothertitans and then contestants must fill out the online registration form,” he said.
“I can only imagine the explosion of drama and intrigue that will ensue, so, imagine ‘Afrobeats’ meeting ‘Amapiano’; imagine the food and everything else that will be showcased; we think this will be quite exciting.
“We are excited about the special big brother season, and we will reveal more details at the right time sometime next year.
“If you think you have got what it takes to be Biggie’s next reality TV star, this message is for you.
