The bell rings and you know when that time of year is when most young Pipo have been stuck on TVs and mobile devices for 70+ days watching young Pipo compete in Season 7 of the reality show Big Brother Naija .
The housemates are competing for the grand prize of N100M, and perhaps they don’t know why they’re attracting so much attention year after year.
Over the years, many Nigerians have not criticized the show, and many continue to see it as a “distraction” and something that adds no value to society.
In 2019, an Islamic human rights organization, Muslim Rights Concern, Muric bin, called on the federal government of Nigeria to ban this show.
Muric Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola bin, describes this show as “an abomination”, “an exhibition of nudity” and “an invitation to chaos and insecurity” for allegedly misleading young Pipo.
Fans of the show mostly have no worries about whether or not they are oda pipo dey tok about am because the show always goes on despite the condemnation.
This time around and with the 2023 general election for Nigeria around the corner Pipo warn young Pipo don’t let him get distracted from the show.
E dey discussable weda or not di show doesn’t distract anyone as some believe, but young Pipo wey don’t show up for di reality TV show nor see me as an opportunity to live their dream.
The number of unemployed young people is particularly high in Nigeria.
The show’s seventh edition, tagged “Level Up,” returns on Saturday with the first 12 housemates, and fans await the remaining housemates on Sunday night.
As with every season, the critics aren’t starting to fret about the show, while the fans are already starting to vote for their favourites.
