The recent trend of fans buying gifts such as houses, cars, company shares, etc for Bbnaija contestants after their evictions from the house and after the end of the show has become a thing to aspire by some Nigerian celebrities. You don't need to stay till the end of the show, as long as you have caught the eyes of people that like you, be rest assured that you have a huge package awaiting you.
This narrative has become "a get rich quick scheme" where you just have to enter the Big Brother Reality TV Show and display some funny characters that would endear you to Nigerians. This narrative has also gradually gotten under the skin of some Nigerian celebrities who stylishly complain of having fans yet not receiving anything from them. I mean who wouldn't want such a fast and legitimate way of making money under two weeks of staying in an enclosed place.
Yvonne Jegede, a well known Nigerian Nollywood actress and mother of one, has cried out on social media because of this trend. Voicing out her intentions on social media via Twitter, she said
YvonneYvonne and son "I don't care, I'm jumping fence to enter BBN audition this year. After how many years of acting and having fans, nobody don buy me bicycle.
The housemates gets popular and in two weeks their fans buy them house and motor.
Don't judge me, this is a well thought out plan".
Now, where is the lie in what Yvonne said? This is absolutely the reality on board. Go to the house and under two weeks become popular and see fans changing your life for good. Who no like better thing, hmm?
Well, good a thing for her that after she made her intentions known, she had supports from fans who edged her on and promised to support her if she finds herself in the bbnaija house this year.
