- The ongoing reality show Big Brother Naija tagged Double Wahala is eliciting reactions from viewers all over the country
- Some love the show in its entirety, while others have offered ways with which the show can improve
- Many also want the show taken down from the airwaves
It’s been less than two weeks since another edition of popular reality show Big Brother Naija kicked off and in that time, it has elicited a lot of responses. While some are in support, others are actively criticising it.
There are also those who feel the prize money (N45 million and a brand new SUV) is too outlandish for an ‘immoral’ show of this nature. Some of the viewers also told newsmen that the show was “an insult to their intelligence as it promotes immorality among contestants.” They made their thoughts known to NAN.
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 por*ographic in nature.”
For Abimbola Coker, BBNaija show should be censored by government approved regulatory agencies. They are to remove all obscene portions before transmitting it for public consumption. For Samson Ogunsunlade, “BBN is an avenue to make fast money without meritorious cause and a perverse drama costumed with the facade called ‘entertainment’.”
Cassandra Smith, a banker, said that the housemates were not serious and it appeared that they were more interested in catching some fun in the house than winning the whopping prize money of N45 million. “The housemates are not serious, they are there to entertain us, and they are not doing anything serious that compared to the housemates from the 2017 edition,” she said.
Elizabeth Afolabi said that the show had been boring as only a handful of the housemates had been entertaining so far. Afolabi advised Biggy to work on them so that they would be themselves and stop being pretentious. “In my own opinion, I am always finding the show boring each time I watch it because I feel the housemates are still pretending to be what they are not.”
John Ayilara said that the show should inculcate educative activities and minimize obscene scenes which could influence children negatively.
