1) Most reality shows on air suck

Let's be honest, the reality shows out there suck these days. Love & Hip Hop, Keeping Up With The Kardashians don't just appeal to us as Nigerians. And for the other reality shows on E! who cares about C-list American celebs? Big Brother Naija will be tailor made for Nigerians and it is much needed during this period of boring reality shows.

2) It's been 10 years

The first Big Brother Naija edition happened in 2006. That's a decade ago. The second edition should have gone down a long time ago. Well, it's never late than never. Big the show back and the voice of Big Brother also. Maybe we can have shower hour this time around? Fingers crossed.

3) It will create new stars

The maiden edition of Big Brother Naija produced celebs such as actor Gideon Okeke, media personality Ebuka, and the winner Katung who is now a top executive in Viacom Africa. Surely, the second edition of Big Brother Naija would produce new stars. This time around we will like to the female contestants become stars too.

4) Entertainment value

Hate or love Big Brother, it creates top notch entertainment. Over the years, we have seen contestants cry, argue, have sex and have meltdowns in front of the entire continent. We need this high-level entertainment back on our screens for three months.
