#BBNaija 3: The Battle has Begun and Much of it will be Fought on Twitter


The much anticipated 2nd edition of Big Brother Naija started yesterday and a lot of drama has already begun. The most popular reality TV show in Nigeria began with a live premiere where the contestants were revealed, after which it commenced it’s 24 hours broadcast.

Unlike previous seasons, this year’s season has the largest cohort of 20 contestants who will battle for the prize money of #45 million for the next 11 weeks.

In less than 24 hours of the show’s commencement, it’s already the trending No.1 hashtag worldwide on Twitter (yes, it is that big). This gives us a glimpse of the reach of Tech apps and how they link human society into one big community. It also gives us an insight of how much Tech apps can be used to set social agenda.

And, we are going to review some early dramas:

Biggie’s Voice

A lot has been said about this season’s Big Brother’s voice as viewers of the reality show who are used to the thick bass-like sound of Big Brother’s voice were not thrilled by the voice of the new Big Brother and wanted the return of the original voice.


The Scramble for a Favourite Begins!

Viewers of the  episode have also begun to support and team up behind housemates. A lot of favourites have begun to show up on social media and the social media accounts of housemate teams are already showing up.


And, some funny contrasts have been drawn.


There also seem to be a particular dislike for a particular housemate who seemed to have a prowess in the verbal display category as he seems to love the sound of his voice and this has earned him the dislike of viewers in the few hours of the show.


Mock Eviction?

To add to the drama of the show, Big Brother added a little twist: six of the contestants were unable to get beds yesterday and to everyone’s surprise, they were evicted from the house as Big Brother told them to evacuate the house (Don’t say I told you, it’s a mock eviction).

This season’s Big Brother Naija promises to provide a whole load of drama and entertainment and you can also catch all the glitz live on Twitter. Wherever you have chosen to follow the show, Enjoy!
