Millions of viewers of the ongoing Nigerian reality television show, Big Brother Naija, were left stunned on Wednesday afternoon when the show went off the air for a little over ten minutes.
A break in transmission message appeared on the screen throughout the duration the show was off the air. “Apologies for the break in transmission, we will be back soon,” a message on the screen read.
The shocking incident reportedly took place when Nina, the new head of house, was handing out instructions on the day’s task, and after the break, the housemates were assigned with a Nokia-sponsored task of coming up with sound concepts.
It was the first time in the history of the reality show that it will suffer a break in transmission.
There are ten contestants left in the television reality show, eight of whom are up for eviction this weekend.
Anto, Cee-C, Lolu, Bambam, Tobi, Alex, Teddy A, and Miracle are the housemates nominated for possible eviction.
The eventual winner of Big Brother Naija will go home with N45 million and a sports utility vehicle.
