The controversy surrounding popular reality show Big Brother Nigeria has taken a very interesting turn as the Federal Government has ordered the National Broadcasting Commission to investigate why the show is being shot in South Africa.
In a statement issued minutes ago, minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed ordered the NBC to determine whether Multi-Choice had breached Nigerian Broadcasting Code in any way by choosing to host the show in South Africa.
Amongst other things, the NBC is also to investigate the issue of possible deceit since unsuspecting members of the public were not told that the show would be staged outside Nigeria.
''As a country of laws, only the outcome of the investigation will determine our next line of action,'' the minister said.
Alhaji Mohammed appealed for calm while the NBC investigates the issue and submits its findings.
