Mothers Divided Over BB Naija’s Effects On Children, Youths

Published

on

Some concerned mothers have expressed divergent views on the moral effects impact of the ongoing Big Brother Naija (BBN) TV reality show on children and, especially, among youths in the country.
They spoke to The Tide source bordering on the alleged recent repeated sexual actions by some members of the house during the programme.
Some of them said that the recent sex plays going on among the house mates had raised concerns over the future moral status of youths in the country.
The immediate past president of the Christian Mothers at SS. Joachim and Anne Catholic Church Ijegun, a suburb of Lagos State, Mrs. Josephine Eguavon, said that the ongoing programme would implant some immoral values in most children and youths.
“Personally, I see it as breaking the seed moral discipline had already planted in our youths.
“For our country Nigeria, I feel when the child leaves the home front, the society that should have improved on the much the home had instilled in the child. Unfortunately, it has nothing to offer,” she said.
According to her, the handiwork of our leaders and those who directly or indirectly fund BBN should be censored and see the content value more than the economic value.
A fashion designer and mother of two, Mrs Juliet Edozie, said that the programme had no moral value, adding that it was adding more problems to the challenge of rape.
“We are trying to curb the frequent rape cases in the country and another programme is bringing back such thoughts, it should be trashed before our children become loose.”
Also speaking, a pastor, Mr Tunde Awofade, said that such programmes should be aired only late at nights when children and youths would have gone to bed.
“It is very difficult to control what our children watch in this age of technology, the best thing is to restrict the programme to very late at night when our children must have slept”.
However, Mrs Patricia Orji, a grandmother, described the project as a vocation rather than a moral disadvantage to the youth.
Orji, popularly called, ‘Ezinne‘ said the participants went there for economic gains and were ready to do anything that would earn them a win.
“Who will spoil, will spoil, though a few just go there to do rubbish, but nobody was forced to go there. What about children in school, do you know what they are doing?
“These ones see it as a job that will put food on their tables; children of these days, it is the grace of God they need not to go astray even when you lock them inside the house .
“In fact, I don’t see anything wrong in it, who will spoil will spoil.
“Even some married people live reckless lives, talk less of people who came out to struggle to get this opportunity and people will say it is bad,” she said.
Two BBN housemates were alleged to have indulged in the immoral act on three occasions since the reality show commenced about two months ago.

Nigerian Female Celebrities Are Not Prostitutes -Movie Producer

Published

on

Nigerian movie producer, Samuel Olatunji, popularly known as Bigsam has debunked the idea that successful women in the entertainment industry earn their money through questionable means.
The Public Relations expert took to his Instagram page yesterday to condemn Nollywood actress, Nnaji Charity, who in her Instagram stories wrote that “being a female celebrity in Nigeria is more like an advanced prostitution.”(sic)
“To say her post is uncharitable to women is stating the obvious. What is more uncharitable is the fact that she is a woman (that, I believe because these days, you never can tell), “ the producer said.
He added, “What you are implying is that all these successful female celebrities, both in entertainment and outside entertainment are prostitutes, got to where they are, or are maintaining what they are by prostitution? Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Naming celebrities such as Linda Ikeji, Toyin Abraham, Funke Akindele-Bello, and Ini Edo, the Dear Affy producer attested to lucrative means by which several female celebrities he has worked with, make their money.
He said, “There was a time someone called me to say Linda Ikeji must be doing fraud or advanced prostitution to make the kind of money she has, that year, Linda was charging 50k per post (now it is 150k). I asked the person to open the blog and we did counting of sponsored post for that day as at 6pm, Linda has done about 20 sponsored posts. That year, Linda was raking in about 2 million daily. Before Covid and after, Toyin Abraham was making over 5 million monthly.
“About 10 years ago, we struck a major deal for Ini Edo, my first cut in the money was over 1.5m. Till date, Ini is making legitimate money quietly and in quick succession to have warranted talk that she’s the richest actress in Nigeria. About two or three years ago, Funke Akindele Bello made over 1 million USD from just one of her projects.”(sic)
Also mentioning the likes of Kemi Adetiba, Uche Jumbo, and Lizzy Jay, Bigsam said, “If you see all these women living life and living well, don’t let your limited brain deceive you that they only make it by gracing beds of powerful men (some of these men actually live off them).”
“Women are doing well and it is possible for the upcoming one to do better without turning to prostitution,” he continued.
He further encouraged ladies to ignore the claims by Nnaji as “she doesn’t know what she’s saying.”
