Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has described the Big Brother Naija 2018 reality show as “barbaric and un-African”.
Omokri in a Facebook post on Wednesday, said Nigeria has now overtaken the West in public indecency, instead of copying its development in science and technology.
The former presidential aide was reacting to the sex scene of Big Brother Naija housemates, Teddy A and Bambam, who were seen on camera having sex in the toilet.
According to him, public intercourse are done by animals and not humans.
“Rather than copying the West and Asia in science and technology, we want to copy and overtake the West in public indecency like #BBNaija where we celebrate youths publicly having intercourse in a toilet.
“When I was a child, only animals had intercourse in the open for all to see. Now I am an adult, Nigerians call people who publicly have intercourse in a toilet stars! If they are stars, it must be very dark over Nigeria!
“We have a culture. Not everything from the West is good! Because of a chance to win a ₦45 million prize our youths dehumanize themselves. What shall it profit a person to win ₦45 million and lose their soul? What can we give in exchange for our soul?
“It is barbaric. It is un-African. Animals not humans should behave that way!”
