The highly anticipated reality television show, Big Brother Titans, premiered with great excitement on Sunday. The show, which is a collaboration between Nigeria and South Africa, features housemates from both countries. The first housemate to be introduced was a 25-year-old South African female, Cossy, followed by Nigerian Yemi Cregx. The two quickly struck up a conversation, with Cregx even helping Cossy adjust her wig, an action that sparked conversations on social media.

The other South African housemates include Juicy Jay, Khosi, Ipeleng, Thabang, Nelisa, Mmeli, , Yaya, Khehla, Tsatii, and Justin. The Nigerian contestants are Olivia, Blaqboy, Nana, Marven, Jaypee, Ebubu, Jenni O, Kanaga, and Yvonne.

The show has generated a lot of buzzes, particularly as it comes at a time when Nigeria is preparing for general elections. However, MultiChoice Nigeria, the organizer of the show, has stated that the show will not distract Nigerian youths from the upcoming elections.

The Managing Director and CEO of MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, said, “As two of the biggest economies in Africa, it was only a matter of time before something like this would come up. Just like there has been a clash of music genres such as afrobeats (Nigeria) and amapiano (South Africa), there was bound to be something of this nature.”

In addition to the regular Big Brother features such as Head of House games,diary sessions, Friday night parties, and tasks, the show will also include educational segments, such as a message from the Independent National Electoral Commission on the process of collecting permanent voter’s cards.

The show will run for 72 days and will be co-hosted by Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the Nigerian and South African Lawrence Maleke. Guests at the live screening of the show included Saga, Dorathy Bachor, and Gerald, as well as a performance by Nigerian musician D’banj.
The last edition of Big Brother Naija aired from July 23 to October 2, 2022, and was won by Phyna, with a grand prize of N100m. The last Big Brother Africa was held in 2014, with the winner, Tayo Faniran (Nigerian), taking home $300,000 worth of prizes.
