Big Brother Titans (BBTitans) has ushered in 20 housemates, kicking off the show’s inaugural edition.


The highly anticipated maiden edition of Big Brother Titans commenced on Sunday night.

Poised to be the biggest takeover on African TV screens, it features participants from Nigeria and South Africa.

The housemates, for the next 72 days, will be vying for the ultimate prize of $100,000 in one Big Brother house.


It promises drama, energy, excitement, and allround entertainment as contestants try to outwit one another.

Viewers, as in the now famed BBNaija reality show, will be treated to Biggie’s diary sessions, head-of-house games, Friday night parties, and other tasks, all of which will be aired live on DStv Channel 198 and GOtv Channel 29.
