Big Brother Nigeria

Located at 8.91, 7.49 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 8 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

Big Brother Nigeria was a reality TV show based on the Big Brother TV series in which 12 contestants live in an isolated house and compete for a large cash prize worth $100000 at the end of the show by avoiding being evicted by viewers. A collaboration between Nigerian and South African production teams, it aired on DStv Channel 37 from March 5 to June 4, 2006. In a twist to the game, two new contestants were introduced on Day 23, much to the excitement of the remaining house mates. Ebuka, the most popular house mate for several weeks into the show and widely believed to emerge winner was the seventh house mate to be evicted; many viewers blame the overzealous Joe's Fan Club (JFC) for his eviction. Joe himself was soon evicted as a result of the perceived arrogance and exuberance of his fans who turned viewers against him. Big Brother added another twist to the game on day 79 by canceling the day's scheduled nominations and making the house mates believe they will instead be evicted based on their performances on assigned tasks while in reality no more evictions were held and viewers began voting for the winner who turned out to be 26 year old Katung Aduwak. The voting results were verified by the auditing company of Alexander-Forbes.

At the 2006 census, the city of Abuja had a population of 776,298, making it one of the top ten most populous cities in Nigeria. However, Abuja has witnessed a huge influx of people into the city which has led to the emergence of satellite towns such as Karu Urban Area, Suleja, Gwagwalada, Lugbe, Kuje and smaller settlements to which the planned city is sprawling towards, the unofficial metropolitan area of Abuja is well over three million. According to Dermographia, the population of Abuja's Urban Area as of 2012 is 2,245,000, making it the fourth largest urban area in Nigeria only suppassed by Lagos, Kano and Ibadan. while Port Harcourt's urban area which is projected to be almost 2,000,000 is the fifth most populous urban area in Nigeria.
