It is going to be the day Saturday 15th of May 2021 as the everyday 30-minutes broadcast of the training phase of Celebrity Come Build a.k.a. CCBNaija, begins in full motion.
A diverse of famous people will be meeting and getting reintroduced to each other while they explore their skills at Base Camp, their home for the next ten weeks as they entertain, learn and plan together while taking their fans through the process of becoming homeowners without stress.
The competition will be between 12 celebrities picked across Africa whose eyes would be on the big prize at the end of the game ten weeks later.
The contestants will be divided into two teams to build a three-bedroom apartment each. At the end, the winner gets a grand prize of 120 Million naira, a 5-bedroom duplex apartment, while the highest voting viewer also gets a three-bedroom bungalow.
The entertaining show, which is aimed to make Nigerians understand that they could become landlords through personal efforts and with little amount of money, is anchored by Andre Blaze Henshaw, a popular Nigerian radio personality and television host.
CCBNaija is the brainchild of Gbola Oba-led Universal Learn Direct Academia Limited, the parent company of ULDA Media Limited, in partnership with the Asuelime Eniola-led Ojis Media Limited.
Already, the stage and the site are set for some interesting experiences in the course of the next ten weeks on the show. The celebrity competitors will be brought together and taught a transformative, highly technical skill while they discover the power of attention to details, including accurate and well-articulated plans and aligned efforts through the ten-week project, the kind they were unlikely to have ever taken in the past.
They will build and furnish a three-bedroom apartment from the scratch, and as the cements get moved and mixed, the blocks pile up and the designs of a future home emerge. This is an experiment that, not-too-long ago, had been just difficult to comprehend.
According to the organizers, the celebrity contestants, who are going to take on the role of builders while they entertain and viewers watch and learn in keen admiration, will run the race in comfort as the interesting plots head towards unveiling new innovations in the first-of-its-kind game.
