MultiChoice Nigeria's General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Martin Mabutho was excited the share the good news.

“From a cost perspective, it is always good to share the Big Brother House in South Africa where all the African franchise of Big Brother can make use of the house. Now, we are at the vantage position of hosting the show in Nigeria and give the global standard for which the show is known for. The Big Brother House is currently under construction and will be ready before the kickoff,” he said.

On why the betting company decided to jump on the Big brother Naija train, the Senior Marketing Manager Bet9ja, Olufemi Osobajo said it is in line with the company’s aim.

“Our core value in Bet9ja is changing lives of the Nigerian youth.
