Big Brother Naija Season 5 kicked off on Sunday, July 19 with 20 housemates.
This season’s theme tagged ‘Lockdown’ is already off to a rousing start with the show’s host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, taking viewers on a tour of the swanky colourful house.
A look inside the BBNaija season 5 house reveals a vibrant display of colours and an increased attention to creative detail in the design aesthetic.
Whilst the redesigned house features improved lounge, bedrooms, kitchen, garden and dining areas, a significant improvement to the house is a separate lounge area for the Head of House (HoH).
The swanky new HoH area includes a private lounge and bedroom that sits on an upper level above the common areas. Previous seasons of BBNaija only had a separate bedroom and bathroom for the HoH. The new living area for Head of House goes a step further in reinforcing the power and importance of the title.
Also new to the house is a beauty and grooming studio and a redesigned arena for the famous Friday night games.
Last week, Multichoice Nigeria revealed that this season’s Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) winner will walk away with N85 million (Ksh23.5 million) grand prize.
The grand prize will include a N30 million (Ksh8.3 million) cash prize, making this season’s winnings the biggest since its debut back in 2006 and highest prize for reality TV show on the continent.
