Pastor Felix Ajide of King Jesus Praiseland Assembly says that the ongoing Big Brother Naija season (4) show promotes immorality and is not good for the society.
Ajide told News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Abuja that the show was pornographic in nature, adding that it has no moral value and advocated for its ban.
He said that the resources used in promoting the show should be used for the development of the society.
“The show should be banned because there is nothing to learn from the show, we are only watching immorality.
“If the western world is doing it, we do not need it here in Nigeria; we need deliverance in this country,” he added.
On the contrary, a Muslim woman, who pleaded anonymity, said it was not necessary for the show to be banned.
“Why should it be banned, it is optional for you to watch or better still unsubscribe that particular channel, if it is offensive to you.
“Most of the things people are complaining about such as the bathroom section are no more aired.
“It has also created opportunities to showcase our culture as well as give room for people to sell their products and give added value to their products,” she said.
The Muslim Rights Concern has labeled the reality show as ‘immoral, dangerous and bohemian’ and also wondered why the Ministry of Information and Culture is doing nothing over the show.
She, however maintained that the show had given room for employment, like the cleaners that keep the place clean and the hair makers among others.
She said that the show was an avenue to improve Nigerian economy such as in data buying.
She also described the show as a means where the house mates showcase what they are made of as well as a means of identifying their potentials.
She therefore advised the organisers of the show to ensure that housemates do not expose their nudity so as not to be seen as a pornographic show.
Also speaking, Chinonye Anokam, a civil servant, described the show as an avenue where Nigerian youth discover their hidden talents and realise their dreams.
Anokam said that the show was entertaining and described it as a place where potentials are harnessed as well as an avenue for promoting unity among Nigerians.
“You might not know the talent you have but the show presents the avenue where people discover their talents,” she said.
Anokam, therefore, suggested that the organisers of the show should have restrictions in the house in terms of relationship between the opposite sexes.
Mr Mustapha Suleiman, a businessman, said that the show was unethical and supported the called for it ban.
Stress: Comedy has become palliatives – Koffi
Comedy is a veritable tool to reduce tension and improve the health of the people, a renowned comedian, Idowu Nuel, (a.k.a Koffi), said on Wednesday.
“At present in Nigeria as it is in some other climes, there is tense economic atmosphere which is adversely affecting people physically, mentally and financially.
“People’s health is declining due to stress and pressure.
He said that laughing regularly would keep one relaxed in spite of harsh economic condition.
According to Koffi, doctors now advise patients to laugh more to reduce tension.
He advised upcoming comedians to choose their words carefully when cracking jokes, adding that they should use satires with caution.
“In the past, cartoon strips in newspapers served as sarcasm and satire and it was well understood and accepted.
“Lately, people are more sensitive and take everything personal; so I personally don’t even try to get entangled in satires.
“As much as I like to deliver intelligent materials, I know the boundaries; hence, I advise others to tread with caution,” he said.
He advised the youth not to relent in efforts to strive toward perfection in the careers.

“The younger generation needs to have the courage to be more creative in other to take advantage of the opportunity presented by the commission to protect intellectual property.
“The NCC will implement the law to its best, but it takes on the individual’s creative person to use the law of the commission to make sure that they develop their life.
“I urge the younger generation therefore, to use the facilities set up to improve on their creativity and push their career to the next level,” he said.
The chairman said that Nigerian music and films were increasingly becoming more competitive in the international community with diverse blend of culture that makes up Nigeria coupled with the unique style of afromusic that makes the Nigerian entertainment industry attractive to foreigners.
Okoroji, who said that the entertainment industry had become a major money spinner for the Nigerian economy, urged the NCC to remain focused in the protection of intellectual property.
“My prayer for NCC is that they find the courage to continue to do what is right so as to encourage quality creative contents capable of growing the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country.
“I am dreaming and praying for a commission that is completely focused on the interest of the stakeholders, musicians, writers and actors.
“This will allow for speedy development in the entertainment sector which will have a ripple effect in the Nigeria nation as a whole,” Okoroji said.
