The organisers of the show took to their official Twitter handle to announce that the reality television show will end on Sunday, 29 March 2020, a week earlier than planned, even though the remaining love guests are not aware of what’s happening in the outside world.
The show, which is set in a redesigned Big Brother Nigeria house, features single people, who are in search of a serious relationship, and seeks to help them find the love of their life.
The organisers disclosed the change in schedule on their official Twitter handle, with a picture statement which reads:
“Due to the growing concerns of the spread of the Coronavirus in Nigeria, kindly be informed that the Ultimate Love Reality TV show will now end on Sunday, 29 March 2020.
“As a result, the current round of voting will end tonight, Tuesday, 24 March, at 10 pm WAT and the results will be announced on Wednesday, 25 March, at 7:00 pm WAT.
“The finale voting will, therefore, open on Wednesday, 25 March at 10:00 pm WAT and close on Friday, 27 March at 9 pm WAT.
“Whilst we know the show has garnered appreciable fans and viewers across Africa, it has become pertinent for us to join the ongoing efforts by the Government and Global Public Health officials to flatten the curve in the fight against the Coronavirus.
