Earlier in May, the management of the reality show announced the opening for video submissions for the upcoming season 5 of the show.
Those seeking a spot in this year’s edition were also informed about the five requirements they will need to qualify for the auditions.
“Participate in the BBN auditions by simply curating a 2-minute video motivating why you deserve to be in the #BBNaija House. Simple right? Entries open from 20th – 30th May 2020,” the show host had written on the microblogging platform.
The latest edition would be coming on heels of the successes recorded during the show’s first four editions, the last of which saw Mercy Eke win the grand prize of N60 million.
It also comes against the backdrop of a reunion organized for former housemates of the reality TV show.
The fourth season of the show, dubbed ‘Pepper Dem’ edition, was characterized by several controversies including a heated battle between Eke and Tacha Akide, the most-talked-about housemates.
