In a bid to offer a more intellectually stimulating alternative to the widely popular Big Brother Naija reality television show, Nigerian-South African-based businessman and visionary, Charles Awuzie, has unveiled his brainchild – the Big Brain Naija reality TV series. Expressing his disappointment with a viral video showcasing BBNaija contestants struggling with basic questions on current affairs, Awuzie, CEO of Gemsbok Group, emphasized that the existing show celebrates superficiality and urged for a shift towards a platform that champions intellect, creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

In response to the video that he deemed a national embarrassment, Awuzie promptly secured the domain ‘’, laying the groundwork for this innovative venture. Within hours of sharing his proposal on his verified Facebook page, Awuzie received a flood of messages expressing interest in partnerships and sponsorships.


The Big Brain Naija reality show will convene Nigeria’s brightest minds under one roof for a span of 50 days, with the objective of crafting inventive solutions to address community challenges. While the victor of Big Brother Naija walks away with a hefty N120 million prize, Awuzie’s proposed alternative offers a more modest N50 million reward, intended to fund the implementation of the winning solution as a viable business venture. The series will be accessible for streaming on major media platforms across the nation.


Awuzie emphasized the need for a reality TV program that inspires the youth, highlighting that intellectual prowess has the potential to lead to greatness and influence. He has set his team in motion to fast-track the branding and development of the Big Brain Naija website, with a target completion date of two weeks.
