The organisers have announced that the fourth season of Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) will be held in Nigeria.
It will be the first time the reality television show will be shot outside South Africa.
During the second season of the show, Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, had directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to investigate why it was being staged in South Africa.
The minister had said the NBC should determine whether Multichoice, by shooting the show in South Africa, breached the Nigerian Broadcasting Code.
During a press conference on Tuesday, the organisers said auditions for the fourth season will be held on February 1 and 2.
The auditions will take place in eight locations; Lagos, Abuja, Warri, Benin, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Calabar and Enugu.
For its fourth season, Big Brother Naija has parted ways with online store, Payporte.
Betting platform, Bet9ja, was announced as the new lead sponsor of the reality show.
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, media personality and event compere, will return as the host of season four.
