Auditions for the show were announced on May 28 and in keeping with the coronavirus guidelines, no physical auditions were conducted.
Prospective housemates were instead, required to submit a two-minute video introducing themselves and explaining why they deserve to be on the show.
Equally important, it remains to be seen how to make the coming season a success, considering the limitation imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mercy Eke, a 26-year-old video vixen and entrepreneur, made history as the first winner of the show when she won the fourth season in 2019. She emerged as the winner of the Big Brother Naija: Pepper Dem, on October 8, 2019.
The rivalry between Mercy and Tacha was one of the most talked-about in the previous competition. In fact, the bout became the highlight amongst viewers.
