How To Be An Exceptional Big Brother Naija Housemate


About a month ago, the popular show, Big Brother Naija was concluded. Whether or not you are an avid fan, you might have heard a thing or two about the entire running of the show, willingly or forced.

If you’re like me, you may have fantasised once or twice about what being a Big Brother Naija Housemate would be like. While I can not teach you how to get into the house in the first place, I can teach you how to survive and succeed as a Big Brother Naija Housemate. Just follow the following proven steps:

1. Wear a controversial look to the premiere   

This is the kind of look I am referring to, in case you need pointers.

The premiere of the show is one of the most memorable moments, a very determining factor indeed. You want to make as much buzz as possible. So, whether it’s a shiny dress, an outstandingly revealing attire or a superbly demure one, make certain that your style speaks volumes. Piercings, tattoos, e.t.c, also do the trick. So many faces would be displayed that night, make certain that yours is unforgettable.

2. Speak the Queen’s English                                      How you look and speak determines people’s attitudes towards you, realistically. Something about foreign accents catches the ears and demands attention, therefore having one is a plus in the books. However, you either have it or you don’t. Nobody wants to hear you jumping from one made-up accent to the next; it’s distracting and destructive. It’s okay to fake it but try to be consistent in your faking throughout your stay. Remember, Consistency is Key.

3. Have a ship                                                          Nobody is an island of resources and as with many things in life, collaboration is very essential in Biggie’s house too. People want topics to talk about and relationships provide those and more. It’s a game riddled with several controversies and controversies can be good if used wisely.

Always have a ship!

4. Be street-wise
This always works, I promise. People want representatives that speak and act like them. The street deserves some representation and you could be the ambassador. A lot of people are also of the opinion that well-to-do housemates do not need the prize money as much as their counterparts from the streets.
5. Stand out in tasks
Being outstanding in tasks is one of the smartest approaches in my opinion. It doesn’t always win the target money but it wins other important bonuses. It provides a platform to showcase your talents and calls for sponsorship. Usually, the crowned winner isn’t always the achieved winner, the one in the spotlight with all the endorsements post-climax of the show. The goal is to be the achieved winner.

There you have it; foolproof schemes should you want to audition for the subsequent seasons. The ultimate trick is to be you but while doing that, you can follow the above guidelines to be the best BBN standard of you.

News has it that the 8th season will be a mix of Big Brother Naija and Big Brother Mzansi to be played by Nigerians and South Africans. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? Perfect time to show off all that this article has taught you.
