Big Brother Naija 2022 Kicks Off, July 23, 24
On Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24, the most watched Nigerian reality TV show, Big Brother Naija will kick off for a seventh edition. The show would get fascinated Nigerians talking again and produce the next coterie of superstars before they are put aside for another set of reality stars, then the cycle continues.
While the reality show has given former contestants the opportunity of a lifetime to see beautiful cities across the globe and travel beyond the shore of Nigeria, more-often-than-not, once the buzz dies, they are left to fend for themselves and rediscover their steps.
Should a prospective reality star go into the house without a proper plan for himself or herself once the show comes to a conclusion, they would be back to square one.
The pampering and fending in Big Brother’s House is only for two-three months, then the media team of the reality show takes care of their image and publicity for the next calendar year before they are allowed to dip their feet into the sea immediately after the reunion show of that season comes to a conclusion.
Once they are back to reality, they have to begin to struggle for endorsement deals, creating a more resourceful career path and becoming a person of value which was their initial aim and objective prior to heading into Big Brother’s House. However, they get lost in the excitement of being talked about for several weeks then fade away into obscurity.
It’s barely a year since WhiteMoney emerged winner of the 2021 Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eyes edition, albeit, his music career is yet to take off. Life outside the ‘kitchen’ is a different reality, when the fans are no longer watching, it is onerous to carve a career for oneself.
Also, she has continued to remain relevant on social media due to her value. Should she be able to evolve, she would attain her utmost potential.
Meanwhile, housemates such as JayPaul, Arin, Tega Dominic, Beatrice, Adeniyi Lawai, to name a few have been unable to carve a niche for themselves. As a matter of fact, they fizzled out prior to the conclusion of the show. Moreover, they had no storylines during the recently concluded BBNaija Shine Ya Eyes show; collectively, the show was weak.
This is why you do not enter the Big Brother competition with a ‘dream’, most times, it ends up being a ‘pipe dream’. The winner of the 2020 BBNaija Lockdown edition, Laycon showed the world what he was made of with his content and strategy.
Nobody saw him coming, he delivered a gauntlet attack on Nigerians. Gave Nigerians and viewers across the globe a fascinating show on television, then his music projects did the magic outside of the house.
In 2020, you could not escape Laycon. He was everywhere and won the show by a fine margin. The prospective housemates should learn from him, going into the competition means you are building on a foundation you already designed for yourself, your team and most importantly, the brand
Alot of reality stars go into the competition with a ‘vague dream’, abstract to say the least, then they are surprised when nobody buys into their agenda or ploy.
What prospective housemates need to know?
On Saturday, July 23, Nigerians will be introduced to a new set of reality stars. The number of housemates is yet to be confirmed, however, by Sunday night viewers would become more familiar with the direction of the new sea
