The organisers of one of the most popular reality shows, Big Brother Naija, has announced that its 2019 edition will hold after 2019 elections and inaugurations.
This is because the reality show is not intended to become a tool that will heat up the polity, a source said.
The source further stated that BBNaija is controversial in nature and therefore should not be mixed up with politics in any way.
“Big Brother will still hold but because it’s a political year, we can’t really control to what extent what the housemates will say in the house and we don’t want it to become a tool that will heat up the polity,” a source said.
“The show itself normally gets twisted so we don’t want to mix it up with politics in any way. Its supposed to be entertaining, we wouldn’t want it to be divisive in any way.
“If you notice, no religious activity gets discussed in the house too, if you want to pray you can pray, we don’t want anyone to be forced to do it or divide Nigerians along those lines.
“So after the elections and inaugurations, it’ll happen,” the source said.
Recall that the last edition of BBNaija tagged “Double Wahala” started in January 2018.
