“We are going to represent that bill You can't fight a battle without a legal framework; we are definitely going to be conscious of that. I will take up the issue of Big Brother Naija; I have spoken with officials of the National Broadcasting Commission because what is going on now is terrible. Having love affairs on live TV is not part of our own culture at all.
“Let me use this forum to tell Nigerians that a new Big Brother Naija is on its way coming and we are working with Startimes. We are doing BBN that will reflect the true Nigerian culture. We are already working on it, all that will be eaten there will be Nigerian food, the dresses will be Nigerian dresses” he said.
The federal government's decision to complain to the NBC over the reality show, BBNaija may be connected to the UK based newspaper's article that was released about a week ago. It had claimed that Khafi and Gedoni were having sex in the Big Brother Naija house.
