The first-ever documentary about Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show is set to drop next month.


Njideka Akabogu, lead public relations officer (PRO) to the organisers of the reality show, broke the news in a statement on Wednesday.

Akabogu said the mini-documentary titled, ‘BBNaija: The Fame, the Fans, the Frenzy,’ and produced by ID Africa’s The Bang Studio, will premiere on Africa Magic.

She said the documentary will take viewers behind the scenes of the “biggest reality television show in Africa and reveal some truths about the show’s production”.


According to her, the documentary will feature some of the most popular housemates the show had ever created including Mercy Eke, Laycon, Nengi, Prince, Alex Asogwa, Bisola Aiyeola, Elozonam, and Ozo.

“Also making an appearance in the documentary is the show’s infamous series producer, Kayode, who answers some of the most difficult questions that fans have asked over the years about the show and camera times for the housemates who have passed through the show,” the statement read.

“BBN: The Fame, the Fans, the Frenzy tells the untold story of the show and examines its impact through the eyes of relevant stakeholders, with appearances from the host, crew and organisers of the show which has grown to become the biggest Big Brother franchise in the world.”


On his part, Femi Falodun, chief executive officer of ID Africa, disclosed that the show is an African pop-culture phenomenon. He added that there is a need to tell its story.

“At ID Africa, we love to tell untold stories and what better story to tell than that of the biggest big brother instalment in the history of the franchise,” he said.

“I am thrilled that we get to share the backstory of how this show is made and how much it changes the lives of the participants.”
