It was announced by Pay Porte that the 2019 Big Brother Nigeria would take place immediately after the elections and inaugurations.
The forthcoming election would take place in February. Hence, the prominent event would take place after the elections have been concluded.
Read the statement released by the organizers of the event.
‘Big Brother will still hold but because its a political year, we can’t really control to what extent what the housemates will say in the house and we don’t want it to become a tool that will heat up the polity’.
The source further stated; ‘the show itself normally gets twisted so we don’t want to mix it up with politics in anyway.
Its supposed to be entertaining, we wouldn’t want it to be divisive in anyway.
If you notice, no religious activity gets discussed in the house too, if you want to pray you can pray, we don’t want anyone to be forced to do it or divide Nigerians along those lines. So after the elections and inaugurations, it’ll happen’.
Due to the political season, the event had to be postponed. Miracle Ikechukwu was the winner of the 2018 Big Brother Nigeria, while Cee C finished as the runner up.
