Auditions for the fourth edition of Big Brother Naija began today February 1 and going by the pictures and comments on social media, this year’s auditions have recorded possibly the highest population in the history of the series. This spike could be attributed to the increase in audition venues from six to eight. They include: Abuja, Benin, Calabar, Enugu, Lagos, Ibadan, Port Harcourt, and Warri.

Thousands of young people flooded the venues with hopes of being chosen as housemates in the Big Brother Naija House competing for the ultimate prize.

As expected, the Lagos venue has been adjudged to have hosted the largest crowd with an estimated 6,000 BBNaija hopefuls on day one of the auditions and a total of 13,000 participants across the 8 cities. Many have compared the audition crowd to typical carnivals and other religious concerts.
