Having a few Striking thoughts, This notorious programme currently going on called THE BIG BROTHER NAIJA.
- What can anyone possibly learn from It.?
- Regardless of our religious affiliation/culture, what are the positive impact in terms of moral, social and economic values that it brings to our inquisitive youths?
Lets take a look at the programme rundown, the winner of this notorious show is expected to walk away with a whopping N25 million and a breathtaking car.
All that is required to win this show is to be Live with a bunch of fellow crazy, irresponsible people, do all sorts of immoral things with no creative or talent exhibition and a winner emerges from under the sheet.
Then he/she becomes a celebrity, winning big advertisement contracts and becoming the face of multinational companies just for going under the sheets with fellow house mate. (like video below)
If only there could be an educating version of this programme. If only these are intelligent people in like manner and make them compete for similar prizes. But, no! Our people do not encourage sanity. Our society promotes evil over good, indecency over decency, immorality over morality, and ungodliness over godliness.
For instance, the best in Mathematics competitions will go home with either a carton of cowbell milk or Indomie noodles, ridiculous stipends and laughable prizes. Yet these morons in BBN will earn millions for coming to suck breasts, speak thrash, display nudity, and get under the sheets on International TVs.
Our rich individuals, companies and corporate organisations will spend huge sums of money sponsoring dirty shows like BBN and Beauty Pageants where they will enthrone satanic activities, display nudity, molest our under aged girls, and make them win on bottom power rather than on real beauty and brains. Can anyone forget the Anambra State born Chidinma Okeke saga in a hurry?
This kind of programme promotes obscenity and immorality. We must not encourage such if our hallowed cultural heritage would be preserved. We cannot prevent our inquisitive young ones from watching the obscene displays that permeate the show.
What a wasted generation! What a time! How do we raise, nurture and produce the next Chike Obis, Chinua Achebes, Wole Soyinkas, and others. What foundation are we laying for coming generations? What message of hope and legacy are we leaving behind? What epistle are we sending to the future to testify to it that the past made some level of contributions. Is Immorality the legacy we really want to hand down to the next generation? Are we not losing our minds?
Let all people of goodwill come together and raise alarm against this dirty programme. Let us all with one voice and in unison say, “We’ve had enough of this nonsense.” Let us blow the trumpet in Zion and declare war on these encouragers of evil tendencies and promoters of these demonic programmes targeted at our highly impressionable youths. We should see that this programme is replaced with a more intelligent and educative programme.
I think the NBC should, without delay, stop this programme if this government means business in the promotion of our cultural values. The show does not add any value to our education, social and economic life,
The Federal Government to also ensure adequate censoring of information being aired and sent to the public, noting that such programme as Big Brother Naija was capable of causing distractions to the Nigerian youths and affecting many families.
I will want to urge all parents and guardians to be on their guards and guide their children and wards against the implication of allowing them to keep watching the Show as it is a dream killer.
