Nigerian Entertainers React to FGN’s move to ban BBNaija
Ruggedman, I Go Die Comedian, Pretty Mike, Baba Latin and many more all reacted!
Popular Nigerian entertainers and various media personalities have all voiced out their opinions against the move of FGN ban over trending reality TV show, BBNaija.
When news broke out at the weekend that the Federal Government had kick-started arrangements to partner with Startimes on the creation of an alternative reality TV show to replace the ongoing Big Brother Naija, BBNaija, it sparked mixed reactions among lovers of the show.
The Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture, NCAC, Otunba Segun Runsewe, last Friday had lodged a complaint with the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, condemning live sex during the show. However, the action of the Director-General of NCAC has continued to generate a lot of mixed reactions across the country, with some notable Nigerian entertainers describing the federal government’s move to ban the reality show as ‘a misplaced priority.’
One of the entertainers who spoke to E-Daily, popular rapper, Michael Ugochukwu Stephens, a.k.a Ruggedman said banning the BBN would mean impoverishing the Nigerian youths the more, as the reality show empowers them on a yearly basis. Read more on their reactions here.
