He said “And na nose I been just dey scratch o! Make una allow Groovy rest abeg.”

There are 24 housemates who will be competing to win N100 million worth of prizes.

13 housemates were introduced during the first launch on Saturday and were put in a separate house. On Sunday, Ebuka introduced 12 new housemates who were also put in a different new house.

The separate house twist is happening for the first time in the history of the Big Brother Naija reality shows.

The housemates are not aware that there are two Big Brother houses yet.
