Co-owner of EME Records and R&B singer, Bankole Wellington, who is popularly known as Banky W, has denied that he or Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, can influence the choice of who gets selected for Big Brother Naija 2019.
"Good luck to all Big Brother applicants. By the way, @Ebuka has no influence/involvement over who gets selected. His work only starts when the finalists are in the house. I also have ZERO influence, so pls stop asking me to talk to him. Just go for the auditions and kill it!
"Just remember that there are thousands of people who are also auditioning for the same 12 spots... so you have to make an effort to stand out. Do something funny, or interesting, or crazy, or outrageous or whatever.. anything to make the judges notice you," Banky W tweeted on Tuesday.
Africa's popular reality TV show, Big Brother Naija (BBNaija), has returned for a fourth season even as producers of the show revealed that the Big Brother House will be located in Nigeria.
The Chief Executive Officer of MultiChoice Nigeria, Mr John Ugbe disclosed this at a media briefing held in Lagos on Tuesday.
As earlier reported, Ugbe confirmed that auditions for the show will hold on February 1 and February 2 in eight locations across Nigeria, an increase from previous editions.
