The long-awaited eighth edition of Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) has kicked off with a bang, promising an enthralling and captivating experience for viewers and fans alike. This season, billed as the “BBN All Stars” edition, features a lineup of 20 housemates handpicked from previous seasons to compete for the ultimate prize.
The programme, produced by MultiChoice Nigeria in Lagos, debuted on July 23, 2023 at 7 p.m. (WAT) on Africa Magic Showcase (Channel 151), Africa Magic Urban (Channel 153), and Africa Magic Family (Channel 154) respectively.
