Some Nigerians have identified areas the organizers of the ongoing Big Brother Naija, BBN, reality TV show are not doing well.
The third season of the show tagged “Double Wahala,” commenced some weeks ago with 20 contestants competing for a N45 million prize and a brand new SUV.
Some of the viewers of the programme told the News Agency of Nigeria that the show was “an insult to their intelligence as it promotes immorality among contestants.”
They condemned how the housemates were kissing each other as if they had been legitimately married.
Mrs Olabisi Afolabi, a mother of two teenagers said, “BBNaija becomes addictive when one indulges in watching it. “I always engage my children in productive activities while the show is on.
“My children are under eighteen. They should not be exposed to anything that is pornographic in nature.”
For Abimbola Coker, BBNaija shows should be censored by government approved regulatory agencies to remove all obscene portions before transmitting it for public consumption.
“Obscenity and nudity become rampant in the show and such should not be encouraged in our society.”
According to Samson Ogunsunlade, “BBN has shaped the perspectives of youths to glamorize or embrace unethical and immoral scenes as if it is a convention.
“It is an avenue to make fast money without meritorious cause and a perverse drama costumed with the facade called ‘entertainment,” he said.
Also, some viewers said that the organisers of the show should improve on its organisation to make it more educative because many teenagers were watching either legally or illegally.
