How to be Successful at the Big Brother Naija Audition .
Note: Effective communication and manner of communication is very important, it is one of the major factors that is been considered.
Have confidence: This is the major reason why candidates loose the interest of the interviewers. You don’t expect any interviewer to take you serious if you end up fidgeting like a 3-year old baby. Even if you have never been on a stage before, just try rep well. Try to look at the panelists when delivering your missiles. Though, know that thin line between self confidence and pride. Try not to appear proud and disrespectful.
Speak simple but correct English: English in Nigeria is not just a means of communication, but a proof of basic intelligence. To be taken seriously in the first place, you have to speak fluent English. Also, avoid the use of unnecessary grammatical expressions. Don’t go for big grammar. It’s a no no.
Be passionate about your ideals: There’s a great possibility you’ll be asked to speak about yourself. Use that opportunity to market yourself and what you stand for.
Don’t look desperate: There’s a thin line between showing that real hunger for the show, and looking desperate. Focus more on what you’ll bring to the game, rather than how the show will help you achieve your dreams.
Don’t be scared to discuss yourself: Go really personal when given the chance. Talk about the positives as well as the negatives. However, be honest and real.
Be unique and creative: Nothing strikes a chord like being different from the others. Just have a clear strategy of achieving success in mind. Think of something that will act like your selling point. I don’t think any bbnaija follower would forget “based on logistics” and “we die here”. Just think.
Show your acting and oratory skills: While on the stage, be free and inspire some laughter where necessary. Put up some light drama. The panelists are humans. You can covince them.
Show courtesy: Basic courtesy is key. Just greeting your interviewers and thanking them where need be could work magic.
Be decent: This is very important. The target audience is Nigeria and the rest of Africa where personal hygiene and appearance is very important. No matter your hairstyle, just don’t look unkempt. Dress well and look fashionable. And choose your diction properly. Control your use of vulgar words.
Be yourself: The main aim of the audition is to meet you. Therefore, just be your true self. Have it at the back of your mind that not everyone is meant to be on Big Brother. You can still achieve your dreams without it. So, have an open mind. Whatever comes out of it, do not feel bad. You may try again on the next audition, or simply move on. Truth is, a good number of people who make an audition have previously lost out at others. So, don’t give up. It’s better to try and fail, than never to have tried at all.
Go early: Last but not least, be punctual. This may seem as the most unimportant on this list, but truly, it is important. Take it seriously. The interviewers are humans. They get tired as they spend more time. They are more likely to be impressed by the early goers. Going late comes with a risk that they may actually pick the character trait they are looking for before you come in.
