Nigerians across the country have reacted to the just concluded auditioning of the Big Brother Naija 2019.
The auditions which held across eight cities of Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Ibadan, Enugu, Warri, Calabar and Benin on Friday and Saturday experienced massive crowd at all the centres.
This has since generated reactions from Nigerians who are now wondering if youths would turn up massively for the upcoming election in February, 16, the same way.
Meanwhile, host of Big Brother Naija reality show, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, has warned against potential housemates campaigning on social media.
Here are some comments gathered by newsmen:
@Rouvafe “People slept at the venue of Big Brother Auditions, people have stood on the queue since as early as 5am, I saw one girl climbing fence too. The sun will beat them there, same with the rains, but they will stay put. Please let’s maintain this same energy on Election Day.”
@Ilynem “The crowd at the #BBnaija auditions is proof of our flawed value system and our failed government. I am not against anyone going to audition for it, but when this is what majority of our youth see as a way to escape poverty, then we have a serious problem.”
@Donjossy “How many of them there at BBNaija auditions actually have their PVC??
On a second thought, the government hasn’t given them enough reason to go out and vote, talkless of hope for the future.”
@Iletemidayo “My big brother audition experience today was the worst. This is my second year auditioning and I must say last year’s audition was better.”
@Real_Seyifunmi “The real winner of BBNaija auditions is the Nigerian Immigration Service. Millions of Nigerian youths have coughed out money for international passport which is one of the requirements to audition for Big Brother. Can PVC be a requirement too Abeg?
@Oluwakamal “So they all have their international passport, I think they should use PVC instead of international passport for the next BBNaija audition.”
@Islimfit “Watched videos of the 2019 BBNaija auditions. Thousands of people even slept at the venue yesternight. Plenty of queues and drama at the venue. But do you blame them? A nation where there are millions of unemployed youths. I just wish they can retain same energy for the elections.”
@Tweetoracle “Just imagine only two Potential House Mates to be picked from every BBNaija Audition venue. How do you sift 2 from 10,000? I don’t envy the judges, they got the thankless job of sorting and sitting thru the crazies of many a Nigerian youth.”
@Adunfejosh “Wouldn’t it be nice if people came out for election like this on 16th Feb.”
@TosinOlugbenga “No jobs,ASUU is on strike..
Guess what? BBNaija 2019 got this huge crowd at her audition as early as 4:45 am. Apparently, some people slept at the venue.”
