The National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) has said that the next edition of the Big Brother Nigeria reality show should be hosted in Nigeria.
Executive director, National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB), Adedayo Thomas, in an interview with NAN on Tuesday, expressed displeasure on why a Nigerian show was being held in South Africa.
The 2018 edition is in its second consecutive year as it had previously suffered a 10-year hiatus after holding its first edition in 2006.
He said, “If it is Big Brother Africa, they can host that anywhere, but the one for Nigeria, should be hosted in Nigeria.
“Nigeria has what it takes to host the show, after all, there are many multinational/telecommunication companies hitherto operating hitch free in the country.
“If the organisers are talking about lack of available infrastructure as an excuse, then how is MTN operating successfully 24/7 in this same country. If MTN, a similar South African company, has been surviving in this country, then I don’t think anybody has an excuse for not hosting BBNaija in Nigeria. They are making a lot of money from Nigerians here, so, we want them to host it here.”
