The Big Brother Naija reality TV show has never ran out of sponsors at any given edition, and the stars and winners of the challenges and indoor games can make good money, both from winning games and from brand ambassadorship.
Since inception, the Big Brother Naija show has maintained its position as the TV reality show with the largest viewership in the whole of Africa.
One thing about the Big Brother Naija is that the sponsors play a vital role in determining how interesting the indoor games (known to housemates as “Tasks”) would be, and as a contestant, knowing who the sponsors are, can give a rough idea of how lucrative any brand ambassadorship deal would be. For this reason, both the viewers and contestants of the TV show always want to know who would be sponsoring the Big Brother Naija season in view.
