M.I Abaga and Yemi Alade are not having any of the federal government’s misplaced priorities and as a voice we listen to, they are standing up to the challenge of confronting the government about it’s action.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had directed the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, to investigate the circumstances surrounding the reported shooting of the ongoing reality show in South Africa. In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday, the Minister asked the NBC to determine if Multi choice has breached the Nigerian Broadcasting code in any way by shooting the show in South Africa.
Well, award winning Nigerian rapper M.I Abaga has taken to his Twitter to condemn the Federal government and its decision to probe the shooting of the ongoing show?? ” Why is the FG probing big brother but not the accidental bombing of IDP camp” he asked.
Singer Yemi Alade has kicked against Federal Government’s decision to probe why the ongoing reality show, Big Brother Naija is being shot in South Africa.
The award winning singer also questioned FG’s inability to look into the recent bombing of Rann IDP camp where over 236 casualties was recorded. “please tell us why our own jets bombed that IDP camp” she tweeted….
I must say that it’s commendable what Nigerian artistes like M.I Abaga, Tuface Idibia, Yemi Alade, Olamide are doing on behalf of their fans and Nigeria as a whole. The federal government have ceased to tackle the most pressing issues in the country but yet dwell on frivolities that are baseless. Big Brother Nigeria was initially planned to be executed here in Nigeria but for the fact that we have this perpetual problem with electricity. It will be a thing of shame for the whole of West Africa to watch a 24hrs lifestyle program for three months and intermittently the electricity goes off and organizers would run helter skelter looking for petrol in order to switch on a generator. South Africa was the best choice as they have evolved centuries ago with constant power supply. The federal Government should know better to fix what is broken in the country first.
