As expected the news has caused many Nigerians to flood social media with mixed reactions.
"Yes. Your favorite show #BBNaija is coming back soon. And no there are no venues to go audition physical," the official host of the show Ebuka Obi-Uchendu said on his verified Twitter page.
A Twitter user concerned about those nominating social media influencers to go for the show said: "These people nominating twitter influencers for #BBNaija don’t know that there’s a huge difference between social media and reality. The Tacha y’all knew on IG wasn’t the Tacha you watched on TV. Someone’s social media personality should never be a criterion."
