10 best reality TV shows in 2019

Quite a number of reality TV shows have been aired within the Nigeria entertainment industry but the ones listed here have enjoyed massive viewership from the Nigerian audience;


1. Big Brother Naija

Big Brother Naija, which was formerly Big Brother Nigeria, is an action-packed TV show, with intense episodes and lovely contestants. 12 contestants live together in the house for 3 months and the winner goes home with a whopping $100,000.

2. Vskit Voice to Fame 

I particularly love this programme especially because my kids and I can watch it, and I don’t have fears about languages or profanity. VskitVoicetoFame is a collaboration between Africa’s leading video sharing platform Vskit and Star Times. 

It is a one of its kind dubbing competition which hit television airwaves on July 28th, 2019. 8 contestants will compete against celebrities for a chance to win a grand prize of 2 million Naira. 

Vskit Voice to Fame will be aired nationwide at prime time on Sundays across TV stations such as Orisun TV, NTA, ST Yoruba and Area10 TV at 8:00pm; ST Dadin Kowa at 9:00pm and many more Yoruba channels. The program will run in mainly Pidgin English and Nigerian local dialects.


3. MTN Project Fame

MTN Project Fame West Africa is a musical talent show organised by MTN Nigeria. It started airing in 2008 and has since grown in clout. Winners are given the platform to continue to showcase their talents to the world. Cue can be taken from past winners like Chidinma, Iyanya and Jeffery Akor. 

The next edition of Project Fame is still not in the know, we however hope it will come stronger this year.

4. Maltina Dance Hall 

A dance reality TV show organised by Maltina and produced by Ultima Studios. In this show, families come together to showcase their bonds, creativity and dance steps. Different genres are employed, including Samba, Salsa, Hip Hop and Pantomime.

6. X Factor
