In May, organisers revealed that the annual show would go ahead amid the COVID-19 pandemic in order to provide “compelling content” that would entertain Nigerians during the lockdown restrictions imposed by government to curb the spread of disease.
On the measures being put in place to ensure that the 5th edition would comply with the guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the organisers said all aspirants would be tested and put on a 14-day quarantine before they would be permitted to enter the house.
