The National Council of Women Societies (NCWS) and the federal government have utterly condemned the high rate of sexual intimacy on Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija).
It is gathered that the NCWS president Gloria Shoda lamented the conduct of the housemates on the reality TV show, saying it does not reflect the Nigerian culture.
According to Sahara Reporters, she that she was not against the BBN reality show but the sex content.
“Having live sex on stage is the thing affecting my sensibility and it is impacting negatively on the young children coming up. Does it mean that they can’t abstain from sex for three months? I’m condemning the sex content on BBN,” is quoted to have said.
The Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Segun Runsewe, backed Gloria Shoda while addressing her.
The NCAC boss also revealed that the government was in talks with satellite television broadcaster Startimes to start a state-owned BBN that will truly reflect Nigerian content.
He also warned that the agency would present a nudity bill to punish sexual acts as displayed on BBN.
He said: “We are going to re-present that bill. You can’t fight a battle without a legal framework; we are definitely going to be conscious of that.
“I will take up the issue of Big Brother Naija. I have spoken with officials of the National Broadcasting Commission because what is going on now is terrible. Having love affairs on the screen is not part of our own culture at all.
“Let me use this forum to tell Nigerians that a new Big Brother Naija is on its way coming and we are working with Startimes. We are doing BBN that will reflect the true Nigerian culture. We are already working on it, all that will be eaten there will be Nigerian food, the dresses will be Nigerian dresses.”
Meanwhile, BBNaija housemates Khafi and Gedoni have been caught having sex on the reality show for the fourth time.
Fans have voiced their concerns over the rampant lovemaking sessions between Khafi and Gedoni, with other housemates complaining about the alarming rate at which condoms disappear in the house.
Many are anxious that Khafi might just get pregnant before the show is over.
Khafi, who is living her best life in the house, is however facing disciplinary investigations in the UK after leaving her job without permission to join the Big Brother reality TV show.
