DSTV Bows to Nigerian Viewers, Yanks Off Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘I am Cait’ TV Show
Multichoice Cable television (DSTV) has removed popular transgender reality television programme, “I am Cait’’ from E Entertainment Channel following complaints by Nigerians.
This is contained in a statement issued on Tuesday by the company.
The top television company succumbed to pressure from the Nigerian market, adding that the docu-series had been removed from the DSTV channel 124 and GOtv channel 24.
The company had assured that they would review client’s complaints and ensure that their interests were given priority.
“The company also reminds their subscribers that Dstv and Gotv decoders are encrypted with the parental control feature that empowers parents with ultimate control over what young viewers can watch.
“The company also encourages parents to make use of this feature as much as possible to ensure that their children only watch what their parents deem appropriate,’’ said Olajide Obi, an official of the company.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, is a gold medal-winning track star who set a world record in the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics.
As Bruce, he became a reality TV star in “Keeping Up with the Kardashians’’.
In 2015, Jenner revealed that she is transgender and has become a woman, now known as Caitlyn.
Though, she is yet to complete the transition process, as she still needs to undergo a surgery on sexual organ that will see her change the male organ to a female’s.
