Yesterday, Multi Choice Nigeria announced during a press conference that Big Brother Naija 2019, the fourth edition of the reality show, is underway and we brought you details of the press conference earlier.
However, superstar Nigerian singer and actor, Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, has denied that he or Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, can influence the choice of who gets selected for Big Brother Naija 2019.
“Good luck to all Big Brother applicants. By the way, @Ebuka has no influence/involvement over who gets selected. His work only starts when the finalists are in the house. I also have ZERO influence, so pls stop asking me to talk to him. Just go for the auditions and kill it!
“Just remember that there are thousands of people who are also auditioning for the same 12 spots… so you have to make an effort to stand out. Do something funny, or interesting, or crazy, or outrageous or whatever.. anything to make the judges notice you,” Banky W tweeted on Tuesday.
However in case you missed our previous post, here are five important things the show organisers revealed at the press conference yesterday;
- The Big Brother House this time, will be in Nigeria and construction is underway.
