Martin Mabutho, Chief Customer Officer of Multichoice Nigeria has made some revelations about the upcoming BB Naija 2019 show which has its auditions slated for the 1st and 2nd of February.
Recall that iDONSABI had early reported that the show was to be held in Nigeria and gave a breakdown of the addresses for the auditions hitherto. Worthy if note is that this year’s edition is sponsored by bet9ja, DSTV and GoTV.

The fact that the show is to be held in Nigeria this time unlike its previous editions has raised several eyebrows and raised so many questions from fans of the show.
Mabutho showed no signs of telling as he made the move to clear the air about several questions asked him.
One of such is what’s been asked for a while now. Fans of the show are oblivious of reasons as to why a show meant for Nigerians would be held outside Nigeria. Case in point, the last edition was held in South Africa
When asked why Multichoice decided to hold the coming edition in Nigeria in a recent interview, this is what he had to say:
“It made sense that we bring it here. The first one we did was Gobe….it was completely flawless. Now at that state we said there’s no doubt that bringing the show to Nigeria would be the right decision. It would be worth the right decision. It would be worth the investment and it’s exciting for us. Corporate Nigeria and sponsors have latched onto it in a big way so in my view, it’s going to be bigger than all the shows we have ever done”
During the course of the interview, he went on to say that although he couldn’t say for the prize money he was sure the grand prize would be much bigger this time and could exceed N45m.
