Following the development that the third edition of the Big Brother Naija reality television show will kick start on the 28th of January, ex-housemates of the 2017 edition have given advice to would-be contestants.
Ex-housemates, Kemen and Miyonse in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), advised the contestants to exhibit positive attributes and exemplary qualities of themselves during the show.
Kemen advised the contestants to put up their utmost best and stay true to themselves in the house.
"Even when they feel their best is not good enough; they should keep their heads up, support each other and stay true to themselves,'' Kemen stressed.
The ship manager-turn fitness entrepreneur expressed optimism that the show would live up to expectation - he said, "Nigeria is a country blessed with resourceful and talented youths.''
Similarly, Miyonse expressed optimism that the 2018 edition would be bigger, exciting and showcase more talents.
"The BBNaija show is a platform for contestants to expand and develop their talents; I believe they have something unique to showcase themselves.
"Basically they should market themselves in the house to the global viewers,'' Miyonse said.
"Whatever they are going to do, should be in such a way that when they are out of the house, they would be able to pick up from where they started.
On his expectations from the show, Miyonse said that whatever shortcomings the show had previously, the organisers would improve on it.
"I am positive they will improve on it this year, like the washing of pots and others; I wish all the 2018 BBNaija contestants best of luck,'' he said.
