Hideous politicians in Nigeria will be singing praises to whatever thing they worship as BigBrother Naija is finally here to distract the Nigerian youth and turn their eyes away from the ineptitude of the government.
Last year, BigBrother Naija dominated social media conversations on the Nigerian Internet. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram were agog with updates about it show such that some critics began to call for its ban as they criticized the show for being highly immoral — never mind that it’s a reality TV show censored for adults alone.
The show is back again this year, and they sure know how to sell it! Whether scripted or not, a video cut of inmates caught kissing is about to draw all the attention that the show needs to be on everyone’s lips and we know how fast “sex” sells. Now, Nigerians will have a new thing to talk about and argue for and against online while leaving the Buhari-APC government to rest as the show lasts.
For those yet to follow the show, the #BigBrotherNaija 2018 is tagged Double Wahala and it kicked off on Sunday with twenty housemates battling for the winning prize of N45 million as announced earlier by the organizer, M-Net West Africa. On Monday, one of the housemates, Miracle was involved in a marriage controversy after pictures of him wearing a wedding ring emerged. Then, on Tuesday, the same Miracle and Nina were caught kissing in the shower owing to a build-up of love scenes that have characterized the show.
Auditions for the show were held in six locations across the country, drawing massive crowds. Ebuka Obi-Uchendu is set to host it again and we can only wait to see who gets to thrill and entertain us!
