Since it was announced that the yearly Television reality show, Big Brother Naija will kick start its Season 5 on the 19th of July, 2020, plans have been set in motion to make provisions in line with the Covid-19 pandemic guidelines.

Organisers are therefore making plans in full swing to quarantine housemates before the premiere in July.

This information was confirmed earlier today by Channel Director, Africa Magic, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, at a virtual press conference while answering questions from journalists.

According to her, they want to make sure that they follow up with the “new normal” reality necessitated by the Coronavirus pandemic, adding that if any housemate tests positive to the virus, he/she will be replaced.

Though she made no mention on the theme or the prize money for the new Season, she promised that there would be an improvement from previous editions of the show.

Fans therefore, are in high spirits as they await the Season 5 premiere and eventual kick off of the show.

It will be broadcast live on DStv channel 198 and GOtv Max, with live eviction shows and weekly highlights to be aired on Africa Magic Showcase, Africa Magic Urban and Africa Magic Family.
