Big Brother Naija was a Nigerian reality television series, based on the Big Brother television franchise, in which contestants live in an isolated house and compete for a large cash sum and other material prizes.
The Season 6 of the show was broadcast last year, breaking records of viewership and audience participation, in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recall that Hazel Onou better known as Whitemoney clinched the N90m grand at stake, leaving Liquorose as the first runner up.
Liquorose has since made the most of her new fame and consequently gained a massive fan base.
Representative of the school in Africa, Euro Vision Ventures, also confirmed the report.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of Euro Vision Ventures, Mr Dozie Atueyi, the BBNaija stars will travel to Milan, Italy, to attend the courses, which include classroom sessions, city tours and industrial visits to Italian businesses.
“The programme will commence in May 2022 with the Certificate in Leadership & Management, as well as the Certificate in Entertainment Business (specialising in Photography),” he said.
Atueyi further said that participants will learn how to develop their own leadership approach, structure complex decision-making processes and make effective use of resources.
This is even as he disclosed that the collaboration with the reality TV stars is to offer a series of short courses to empower working professionals and students across Africa.
