Double Wahala For Nigerian Youths: The BBNaija Factor

In 2006, BBNaija was conceived by Obi Asika the then CEO of Storm 360 as a platform to promote the Nigerian brand as well as the rising dominance of the country’s entertainers on the entertainment scene in Africa but unfortunately,the idea had been defeated.
lets face it..what brand does this show promote and what positive impact does this show have on the productivity of Nigerian Youths and Nigeria as a nation?,and in what way does the show promote the image of the country when it was not hosted in Nigeria?...
Whilst many intelligent educated youths are out there with mind blowing entrepreneurial ideas with no funds to implement their ideas and many talented Nigerian youths out there hoping that one day they will get funding for their dreams but here we have a whooping sum of N45m and several other rewards splashed on the winner of a sex-talent hunt show where a carton of condom was provided as part of supplies for the house and Shockingly, in less than three weeks of entering the Big Brother house, the packets of condom had been depleted. Does this mean the housemates have been having regular sex?,it is very apparent that the organizers only show viewers the ones they want them to see.
What about the kissing competition?, curdling,nudity and live s*x on live Tv?,thereby influencing our children very negatively and serving as a satanic tool to sow the seed of immorality in the underage who also view the immoral program and follow it up on social media.
As if this is not enough,we have some celebrities who ought to be role models promoting this counter productive program by openly rooting for their preferred housemate and even the winner is honored by the state he/she comes from making them ambassadors ....whilst first class graduates in many Nigerian universities are rewarded with N10,000,a soft porn winner gets N45m...this could fund the business ideas of over10 potential Dangotes in Nigeria.
So i begin to wonder how on earth did our youths get to this point where they have totally missed their a country where their is massive unemployment,Boko haram terrorists, endless herds men killings, high profile corruption cases, Non payment of salaries by many states despite the bail out funds, Kidnappings, Economy recession and Bad leaders to mention just few...our youths who ought to demonstrate their intolerance to the aforementioned find it more convenient to expend their energy on a soft porn reality show, lame.
With the misplaced priorities of today's Nigerian youths I guess the nation may be stagnant unless we focus on things that matter in moving Nigeria forward like our Nigeria youths of the past, like Awolowo who was 37 years, Akintola 36, Ahmadu Bello 36, Balewa 34,Okotie-Eboh 27 and Enahoro 27 and they led the struggle for Nigeria Independence after the death of Macaulay. Only Zik was 42 at the time!
In 1966, the first military coup was led by K Nzeogwu who was 29 years and countered by M.Mohammed 28,T. Danjuma 28, I. Babangida 25, J. Garba 23, Sani Abacha 23, and M. Yar'adua 23, And brought into power Y. Gowon 32,Ojukwu 33, Obasanjo 29, and Buhari 24!
Most of the military governors who governed the states under the successive military regimes were under 30 years.
Also, the brief democratic dispensation which interjected the military regime also saw some Senators and members of the House of Representatives, in particular, populated by persons under 30!
Under 30's were also not in short supply with appointments - we have examples of MT Mbu who became Nigeria's Foreign Affairs Minister at 23 and Pat Utomi who became a Federal Adviser at 27 and so on and so forth! but the present day Nigeria youth have totally become a shadow of the youths we once had in time unfortunate.
The most bizarre twist is that in all, 170 million votes were cast in the 85-day event, with 30 million votes coming in the last week alone which goes to confirm that indeed,many Nigerian youths are clueless as voters had to spend N30 per sms and many voted several times and those who voted for free had to go through the stress of downloading an app in order to vote for free yet many of these voters who are 18 years and above have never voted in any electoral process in Nigeria and many do not have a Permanent Voters card to vote in a credible leader to move our nation forward.
Well just as the theme for the just concluded show implies..Indeed it is DOUBLE WAHALA for the clueless Nigerian youths.
I rest my case.
