Renowned musician Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti has expressed his opinion that the popular Big Brother Naija reality show should have been oriented towards addressing Nigeria’s challenges.
Appearing as a guest speaker in a recent interview on Spade TV Africa, hosted by Gbenga Aborowa, Kuti emphasized the importance of channeling the annual Big Brother Naija show towards the nation’s progress.
Kuti pointed out that instead of focusing solely on social skills and tactics, the show could have been a platform for discussing potential solutions to Nigeria’s myriad issues. He further suggested that it would be more meaningful if the viewers voted for the most viable solution, rather than for housemates.
He said, “Big Brother Naija is the way it is because of the Investment that is put in it. It was designed by certain people to be that way. The people that designed Big Brother could have decided that it would be a show where young people discuss the issue of the country and come up with solutions and other young people and viewers can vote on the best solution.”
The controversial public figure added that if the show was structured towards development, the investors would be investing towards Nigeria’s growth and development.
In his words, “That means that the people going from entertainment to solutions and national development, they’re investing in solutions for national development.”
