Apparently the Federal Government Of Nigeria has considered the Big Brother Naija Show a problem amongst other pressing issues.
There has been a complaint by the FG to the National Broadcasting Corporation Over s*x in the BBNaija house.
Otunba Segun Runsewe, the National Council for Arts and Culture Director-General disclosed this when he was visited by the President of the National Council of Women Societies Gloria Shoda.
According to Otunba :
“We are going to represent that bill You can’t fight a battle without a legal framework; we are definitely going to be conscious of that”, Runsewe assured.
“I will take up the issue of Big Brother Naija; I have spoken with officials of the National Broadcasting Commission because what is going on now is terrible. Having love affairs on screen is not part of our own culture at all.
“Let me use this forum to tell Nigerians that a new Big Brother Naija is on its way coming and we are working with Startimes. We are doing BBN that will reflect the true Nigerian culture. We are already working on it, all that will be eaten there will be Nigerian food, the dresses will be Nigerian dresses” he added.
Shoda also described having sex on “stage” a negative impact on children who are clearly not advised to watch.
“Having a live sex on stage is the thing affecting my sensibility and it is impacting negatively on the young children coming up. Does it mean that they can’t abstain from sex for three months? I’m condemning the sex content on BBN.”
Nigerian’s would hope to see how this plays out and how a better show can be streamed on startimes.
