…ups premium subscribers’ voting power
Biggie, the instructive voice behind the screen of the ongoing Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality TV show, has introduced a twist in the eviction of housemates, while upping voting powers for DSTV’s premium subscribers.
In an announcement on Sunday, Biggie said that head of house (HoH) and deputy HoH will now be immune to being kicked out during eviction shows.
“All housemates, except HoH and Deputy HoH, will be up for nomination and therefore possible eviction each week as well as increased Voting power for those who are premium subscribers,” he said.
For voting, active subscribers on DStv or GOtv will now have votes for each round based on their subscription package — while the higher the package, the more votes they have!
The 2020 edition of BBNaija had earlier raised concerns among viewers considering that it is holding at about the same time when the world is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show’s organisers, however, addressed these concerns by revealing measures put in place towards protecting participants from the novel virus both prior to and during the show’s run time.
All 20 housemates are now expected to vie for the grand prize of N85 million, within which other benefits are included and ahead of which evictions will emerge as competitions and voting kick in.
