The BBNaija reality TV show has ushered in two new housemates into its ‘Level Up’ season.


The show started with 12 housemates in the level 2 house on July 24.

On day two, 12 others joined in the Level 1 house to make up 24 housemates.

On the Sunday night show, two new housemates identified as Deji and Modella were added to the competition.


This brings the total number of participants in the ‘Level Up’ edition to 26 as of July 31.

There haven’t been any evictions so far in the house.

However, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the host, stated that the newly added contestants are fake housemates.


The BBNaija 2022 season is the seventh of its kind. It will run for 72 days, from July 23 to October 2, 2022.


On the other hand, Beauty was issued a strike by Big Brother over her clash with Ilebaye, a fellow housemate.

The former beauty queen was angry at Groovy, her love interest in the house, for dancing with Ilebaye, who she wasn’t on good terms with.

In a heated confrontation, she yanked off Ilebaye’s wig as other housemates tried to diffuse the situation.


Just before the Sunday night show, Big Brother addressed both ladies, adding that their actions were unacceptable.

While he went ahead to issue a strike to Beauty for initiating the violence, he let Ilebaye off with a strong warning.

The winner of the reality show will go home with a grand prize of 100 million.

This is the highest ever since the inception of BBNaija.


N50 million is the cash prize while the other N50 million is an estimation of prizes from the sponsors.
