Big Brother Naija Organisers Reveal That Nigerians Spent N7.2bn On Votes

Nigerians spent over N1.5 billion 
 …Amount higher than a month’s allocation to 3 states put together






Statistics emanating from the final day of the Big Brother Naija Season 4 ‘Pepper Dem Gang’ episode shows that Nigerians spent a whopping N7.2 billion on votes.

Announcing the results on Sunday, the host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu said that the season got over 240 million votes, out of which over 50 million votes were cast in the final week of the season.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that it costs N30 to cast a vote on the BBNaija Reality TV Show.

With the figure, Nigerians spent over N7.2 billion on votes alone. Announcing the winner of the show, the host also disclosed that a record-breaking over 50 million votes amounting to N1.5 billion were garnered in the last week of the show. 

The N7.2 billion figure spent on votes is higher than the allocation received by three Nigerian states for the month of January.

    3. N7.2bn on BBNaija votes, meanwhile Sowore is in jail and no one cares. People should stop blaming Buhari; God/karma/nemesis only gives a people the leadership they deserve... Nigerians don't deserve anyone better than Buhari and at this rate, the next leader might be worse!

    3. Pride na bastard.
      Yesterday made me know Tacha played herself. Cheee!
      Ordinary 41 percent when tacha get that on a daily. She would've gotten more than that at the finals.
      Tacha learn from this,turn a new leaf and it shall be well with you okay?

    7. @shantelle,Tacha would have won this game but she played herself!
      Each time I remember her actions,it makes me angry but I still love her....regardless.
      What she really needs is a HANDLER,who wouldn't exploit her fame and who would prevent her from trending for the wrong reasons!
      I hope she makes it bigger than the "owner"!
      @10:21,I understand you perfectly but 30m,that cheap car and other orisirisi are still small,compared to the billions of naira they made from the show.
      At least,a 100m would have been better.
      My opinion tho....

      Delete
    8. @10.21 . They made the money for lohisticts, staff payment and other before the show even started. Adverts and sponsorship money would have run into billions for the duration of the show. The winner should be getting nothing less than N100m(cash!) Asides gifts. I think its a rip off.

  12. BB is a very huge franchise no doubt.

    I was so happy with the last 10 days in the house. There was so much peace and quiet.

    I was also very happy with the finals and the top 3 was as I guessed. My favorite 3 were up there last night. There was no drama, bitterness or venom even though they were competing against each other unlike what happened last year.

    I also like the way Seyi dodged the question about having feelings for Tacha. That boy get problem and he is so dramatic. Hehehe!

    All in all, it was a very good show and I'm so happy Lambooooo won. Wouldn't have minded Mike winning too. I knew Frodd wouldn't win but I just wanted him to be top three to shut naysayers up. Kai! My slow tiger.

    I wish all of them huge success in all their endeavours. #MercyMikeFrodd... My love for these three ehn.

    I other news, TV has gone back to being boring! Thank God for crime and investigation sha.

  23. Its a business...the organisers ain't running a charity.

  24. And so? Make person when run business no make gain? Abi is it a charity organisation? We are quick to calculate the profit but no one is talking about the expenses incurred. Is the house free? Electricity nko? Is it water they used to run the generator for three months? How about logistics? Ebuka posted a pic on saturday and said it was a few of the people working behind the scene, I counted over 150people, are those ones working for free?

  25. Ebuka pepper dem outfits allowance nko? They made alot sha...considering the facts that most of the items and food were from the sponsors

  26. Anon 10:21, u are right. They get to pay for the venue, caterers, suppliers of all sorts ,artists, celeb visits & entertainments, Ninjas, hotel accommodations, flight tickets for relatives , photographers, video guys, moderators , of course the winner & much more. This is Business & profit must be made. Kudos guys.

  27. My money dey there. No only online but shared Ik each to all my Estate guys, office assistant. My house maid spent all her pocket money on Marcy outside the 2k for the vote.

    When she told me in the night I was shocked.
    But in All, I am happy our votes counted.

  28. Tacha could not have won, Mercy topped her the times they were up together. Mercy got 41% while up with Mike, Frodd, Omashola and Seyi. 41% of 50 million votes(the highest in BBN history), yet the 1st runner up could get only 19% even with titans' support. Tacha who again? Tacha's 41% was with Mike, Like, Cindy and Elo, the weakest house mates and Mike still took 28% of those votes. If Tacha was at the finals, we would have tripled our votes. Who is the MVP now if not Lamborghini?
