The 2020 Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality TV show kick-started activities on Sunday with the unveiling of the 20 housemates, most of whom hail from Lagos state.


It is also worthy of note that the majority of the 20 housemates are entrepreneurs running their own ventures while the entire team spanned people of diverse professions.

Of all the housemates, seven introduced themselves as natives of Lagos while some of the participants who are from other states, turned out to be resident in the commercial city.

Two of the 20 individuals have links to London; two came from Bayelsa; two are from Imo. Others spanned people from Enugu, Abia, Benue, Edo, Rivers, Sokoto, as well as Delta.


On the age range for the new housemates, the organisers selected individuals between ages of 22 and 35, with the majority spanning those between the ages of 24 and 28.

The 2020 edition of the BBNaija show had earlier raised concerns among viewers considering that it is holding at about the same time when the world is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The show’s organisers however addressed this by revealing measures put in place towards protecting participants from the novel virus both prior to and during the show’s run time.


All 20 housemates are now expected to vie for the grand prize of N85 million, within which other benefits are included and ahead of which evictions will emerge as competitions and voting kick in.
