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, BBN, 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 nonsense 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 yearly basis. The reactions… Ruggedman “I saw the news somewhere and I said so the Nigerian government has left Boko Haram, Herdsmen, RUGA and all the problems Nigeria has to be watching BBNaija. This is not good enough; they should help us and leave BBNaija alone. BBNaija is somebody’s successful franchise; if they don’t want it on TV, they can tell NBC or DSTV to stop showing it. And while they are telling DSTV to stop showing it, they should also fight DSTV because their tariffs are too high, MTN inclusive. These are what they should be fighting against but they are not doing so. It’s the one that people are enjoying they want to fight. These people have misplaced priorities; who allowed it in the first place? They didn’t fight against it when it started, but now that it’s turning in money for some people and empowering Nigerian youths in a way, they want to stop it. It’s just like saying people should not travel abroad, whereas you’re not giving them jobs. If they want to ban BBNaija, they should know that they shouldn’t have let it begin in the first place. But while they are at it, they should please help us ban the high tariffs on DSTV subscription”, he said. I Go Dye, Comedian For stand-up comedian and social commentator, the government cannot successfully ban the show. “Government cannot successfully ban anything with intellectual right in it’s totality. If you ban it in Nigeria, are they going to stop all Nigerians abroad from watching it in their various countries? Let’s be objective. The approach should be for them to partner with such agencies and brands to re-orientate the youths more positively. What concept has the Ministry of Information, Orientation and other mass mobilization institutions created within the last 20-years of our new democratic journey? The world is now a global village and information dissemination is cheap and very accessible due to the advent of ICT. Government should be more proactive than being critic; explore positive mediums to establish their civil ideals instead of being confrontational. If we take a look at the music and film industry in Nigeria, you will agree with me that they have not supported or added one value to the content or production improvement. They should not be credited for just banning or infringing on the rights of concept and content developers. This is a challenge for them to meet and consult with relevant stakeholders towards bringing national ideals to the public domain. I kindly appeal for caution and discretion towards issues like this”, he noted.
