#BBNaija is Satanic, a Danger to Every Home – MURIC
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has labelled a reality television show, Big Brother Naija, as ‘immoral, dangerous and bohemian’ to the society and subsequently called for its shutdown.
BBNaija is a reality show in which about 14 contestants live in an isolated house and compete for a large cash prize worth $100000 at the end of the show by avoiding being evicted by viewers.
The Muslim group, MURIC, in a statement issued by its director, Ishaq Akintola, said BBNaija “constitutes a potent danger to every home.”
“BBNaija is satanic. It is unacceptable,” Akintola said.
“Where are our norms and values? Is it part of African culture to engage in sex in the open?”
“Where are the authorities? Is the Ministry of Information and Culture sleeping? Is the National Orientation Agency on sabbatical? Who will protect our children from this despicable onslaught? Who did this to Nigeria?” Akintola added.
Premiered on March 5 to June 4, 2006, the show has overtime generated widespread controversies.
Moralists and religious leaders have called for its ban as it is seen to be promoting and showcasing “promiscuous lifestyle for fame and money.”
In a recent happening during the 2018 edition of the BBNaija, the Tobacco Control Nigeria in 2018 also berated the show for its very disturbing trend has gone beyond the limits in offending the sensibilities of Nigerians who watch the series.”
