The fair share of blame is not reserved just for the organizers of Big Brother Nigeria, but it’s fans, supporters, and of course sponsors.
Big Brother Nigeria is a reality show whichpromotes in a mass scale nudity, sexuality and immorality. It is a show that adds zero value to the human development index with respect to Nigeria. In a county where majority of its youths are struggling to find a suitable job to sustain themselves and their families, comes a show where billions are splashed not to promote ingenuity, excellence or talent needed to grow the country but to promote nudity, sexuality and
immorality setting a bad precedence for the youths who are glued to the TV watching the show.
Big Brother Nigeria is yet to positively impact on the youths in this country. Take a look at the Western world with regards to the United States, reality shows such as Americans Got Talent are organized drawing thousands of applicants who apply with the aim of

Politicians are looting the country dry, billions are splashed and stashed abroad by corrupt politicians who use reality shows such as Big Brother Nigeria to distract youths.
The Nigerian media is also not helping matters as they also take a chunk in the blame.
You can imagine waking up to a headline such as “Kiddwaya kisses Erica”
How does this kind of information add value to youths in the country, what is the information
