The auditions for Big Brother Naija 2019 reality television show kicked off today across Nigeria and it has recorded possibly the highest ever turn out in the history of the series.
Thousands of youth flooded the eight locations in Nigeria – Lagos, Calabar, Enugu, Benin, Ibadan, Warri, Abuja, and Port Harcourt – with the hopes of making it to the Big Brother house.
It was reported that as early as 1a.m at D’Podium event Centre, Adeniyi Jones, Allen, Ikeja, Lagos, people were seen entering the venue of the auditions, in a bid to be among the first set to be auditioned.
In Ibadan, at the Mauve 21 event centre, venue of the auditions, people were seen in large numbers as at 5a.m.
