An Open Letter From A Nigerian To The BBNaija Reality TV Show Organizers.

I have been a big fan of the BBNaija show over the years, but i have noticed something about the show which has become more obvious as the years go by, before I get into what I have noticed let me introduce the show to people who may not know about it.

The BBNaija show is one of the most anticipated reality TV show in the country, the Big Brother Naija season 5, that is themed Big Brother Naija Lockdown is the fifth season of the reality TV show.

Owing to the COVID 19 pandemic the audition for the show was done virtually. The Contestant were picked from the video submission that took place between May 20 to May 30 2020 and since then most people have been waiting to meet the housemates. On the 19th of July 2020 the contestant were revealed to Nigerians and the world but I was very unhappy about it, they did the same thing this year, they picked people who are already very comfortable financially to be contestant.

What I have noticed is that the housemates are very well to do people, BBNaija organizers should be picking ordinary every day Nigerians to make the show more fun and real, is it not suppose to be a reality TV show?Let me introduce the contestants so you can fully understand what I am stressing.


Ozo is the first housemate. the 27 year old is an entrepreneur from IMO state.


Vee is the second housemate. She is a 23 year old musician that was born and raised in london.


lilo is the third housemate. She is a 23 year old dietitian based in Lagos state.

From all indications some of these contestant are well off without the show. We the Nigerian people what to see more people who are very common and who we can relate to on the show, not people who were born with silver spoon and lived almost all their live overseas.
