With the Big Brother Naija Reality TV Show winding down tomorrow, another programme, Miss Campus Naija Reality TV Show will hit the airwaves on December 4 this year.

The show, which would run for three months, would come to a close on February 27, 2022 and the star prize winner would smile home with N50 million.

According to the organisers, Kanaz Production Entertainment Limited, the show would be aired 24 hours turn around on MTN and Airtel online TV and DSTV, among other television channels.

Chairman of Kanaz Group, the parent body of Kanaz Production Entertainment Limited, Nnabueze Louis Kanife, who spoke during the unveiling of the show in Lagos, recently, said it aimed to promote the cultures, languages and tradition of the states of the participating contestants, thereby promoting unity of the diverse participating cultures.

“It is designed to be a reality show featuring female undergraduate students from tertiary institutions in different geo-political zones of Nigeria.

“Our vision is to make Miss Campus Naija Reality TV Show the largest and most credible provider of content relating to helping young women achieve their aspirations of supporting marginalised or disadvantaged groups or worthy humanitarian causes.

“The contestants are to be housed in a secure location in Lagos State whereas auditions and voting for selecting them will take place at strategic locations nationwide.

“They will be required to live their daily lives according to a variety of cultures and traditions, display their knowledge of different languages, prepare different ethnic dishes and showcase the histories of traditions/customs of different ethnic groups in Nigeria. They are also expected to use the platform to demonstrate their unique talents in the form of hand crafts, innovations and others,” He said.

On why the show is exclusively female, Kanife explained that it was to eliminate limitations witnessed in other reality TV shows.

“It is designed to be a house of fame for our young undergraduate girls. It is also designed to give them the best in life and a sense of belonging. Once it starts, each contestant will represent a state. Thirty-seven contestants representing the 36 states of Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, will contest for the star prize of N50 million. After the registration, contestants will start to canvass for votes from their families, friends, loved ones, schoolmates and departments. There won’t be any physical audition; the audition will be through voting. Once you have the highest votes, you will emerge to represent your state,” he said.

On the prizes to be won, he explained further: “The first prize of N50 million is broken down as N25 million SUV, N5 million scholarship and N5 million plot of land with a C of O plus a monthly salary of N300, 000 throughout her stay in school.

“Second prize winner will go home with N20 million broken down as N5 million scholarships, N5 million plot of land with a C of O and a N200,000 monthly salary throughout her stay in school.

“Third prize winner gets N10 million broken down as N5 million scholarship and a monthly salary of N100, 000 for her remaining years before graduation.”
