The paramount ruler of Ile-Ife; Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi has said that the BBNaija reality TV show misrepresents Nigerian youths and so should be scrapped.



The monarch made this known when he received members of the Nigerian Youth Council in celebration of the International Youth Day.

The Ooni of Ife, however, called for a new show which will be more beneficial to the Nigerian youths.

“Nigerian youths are fond of accusing and abusing our leaders. Stop abusing them. Contribute your own quota. Let’s wear our thinking caps and begin to act like the real future leaders that we are.

“In the last general election, the total number of votes cast was around 27 million while over 170 million people voted during the 2019 Big Brother Naija reality show.

“This is a practical reality of who Nigerian youths are and where our priorities lie as Nigerians.

“The funny side in all of these is that we still go to bed, have a good sleep and wake up with the hope to meet a Nigeria we didn’t create. Nigerian Youths! Nigerian Youths!! Nigerians Youths!!!

“Unfortunately, every time I talk about this kind of attitude, everyone just laugh and move on. What kind of nation are we building?

“When people say this country, or what kind of country is this, they are indirectly saying these people – it is the people that make a country; so what kind of Nigerian youths are we?” Ooni asked.

He urged the Nigerian Youth Council to work on a new show which will be called “The Big Nigeria Reality Show” aimed at showcasing the country’s traditions.

“The proposed show will be structured in a way that young professionals, talented individuals and others across several field of endeavour will be showcased and helped to reach their peak.

“This would help the participants and also help viewers to have access to people that can be seen as role models,” Ooni added.
