The BBNaija 2019 auditions have kicked off across 8 locations today, February 1 and will end tomorrow February 2, but Nigerians are not taking it lightly at all.
Probably off the face of the success of the last edition, more people have turned up for the auditions this year.
Many people at the venues have reported via social media that the venues in places like Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt have been packed full since midnight of February 1. (See all the venues here)
Last year, Miracle won the competition and was awarded the N45 Million prize, but his fellow housemates have also soared to fame and success since then, which has probably sparked the increase the number of people for the audition.
That and the fact that this year’s edition will hold in Nigeria and the total prize value has been confirmed to be worth more than N45 Million.
Meanwhile, DSTV Nigeria has released a statement saying: “The auditions for Big Brother Naija are currently ongoing and candidates are advised to remain calm and orderly. Given the expected large turnout of people, adequate security and onground support have been made available, while best practices are also being followed to ensure a seamless audition process. The full cooperation of all prospective candidates is nonetheless expected and appreciated.”
