BBNaija’s entire premise was inspired by the dystopian world described in the classic science fiction book Nineteen Eighty-Four, in which everyone is constantly being recorded and monitored by cameras and microphones.

The format of the show is based on how the “thought police” watch the video in the novel. The roommates in the show are cooped up in a home and forbidden from communicating with the outside world until the house permits it. In a weekly confessional, the housemates discuss who they think should be kicked out of the house.
