A lady identified as Apkata has led what seems like a campaign on Facebook, when she posted “wish they can bring back these shows and take away Big Brother” , and this has stirred reactions from a lot of people.
Apkata echoed the thoughts of many Nigerians on social media with her comments.
Big Brother Nigeria or Big Brother Naija or simply BB9ja as popularly known is the Nigerian version of the Big Brother franchise Television series where contestants live together and compete for the grand cash prize and other perks.
Its popularity has grown over the years in Nigeria as many young people follow the show almost religiously and discuss its events on social media day in day out for weeks un end.
But not everyone gets excited over watching semi naked individuals engaging in role play and attempting to one up each other on who could be the most outrageous or most saintly individual in the most dramatic of ways.
Apkata seems to fall in this group of people hence her comments.
She laments and reminisces about old TV shows that no longer exist or have been scraped for one reason or the other.
Many would have expected a backlash but the opposite was the case as many showed their support for her sentiments and asked that shows like Project fame, Gulder Ultimate Search and Maltina Dance All, be brought back.
Below are some of the social media reactions;
With this call, what’s your take on it, should BB9ja be ban or not.
