A Big Brother Naija contestant proposed to his girlfriend, at the BBNaija Lagos audition venue and it…
An angry fan has condemned BBNaija’s decision to do online audition for the BBNaija 2020. They said it will only produce fake housemates such as Tacha.
Since the announcement of the commencement of BBNaija audition for 2020 show, lots of fans have reacted to this. Ebuka Obi- Uchendu, the official host of the show for many years now took to his Twitter account to announce the return of the show. This came as a big surprise to Nigerians as they never expected that the show will still hold especially during this period of Corona Virus Pandemic.
Ebuka announced that therw are few adjustments to this year’s show. The auditon for this year will be online unlike the physical audition of last year that attracted thousands of people struggling to get seen and picked for the show. This time around, a two-minute video introducing your self and telling Biggie why you should be on the show is required as the means of audition. This measure was adopted to avoid the further spread of COVID 19 as there is the government’s ban on social gathering and also social distancing. BBNaija 2020
But this decision of Multi-Choice has attracted so many criticisms, reactions and counter reactions. Lots of people have nominated social media influencers to audition for the show because they stand a better chance with an online method, just like Tacha of last year edition did. Before she was picked, she was already a popular Instagram influencer and personality; Tacha was already a social media personality. BBNaija 2020
A Twitter user concerned about those nominating Twitter influencers to go for the show said:
“These people nominating Twitter influencers for #BBNaija don’t know that there’s a huge difference between social media and reality. The Tacha y’all knew on IG wasn’t the Tacha you watched on TV. Someone’s social media personality should never be a criterion”

This user is therefore disagreeing with the total idea of depending on online videos as a means of audition to get housemate for Beggie. She believes it will bring forth lots of fake people for the show since there’s no one on one interview. Many people will only go and do social staunts to make them get picked.
Many fans too reacted to this online audition with different comments, it seems that many people are not happy about it because thousand of fake and artificial videos will be rolling in. Fake candidates will be picked depending on videos influenced by social media influencers. Some even said they should just go ahead to just name their contestants, that there is really no need to declare on online audition because it will be fake.
Meanwhile the CEO of Multi-Choice Nigeria, Mr. John Ugbe has assured that this year’s edition will be very different. He said that all the government’s guidelines and preventive measures for the COVID 19 will be strictly observed during the show.
He further stated that this year’s edition will be the best ever. It promises to be most entertaining and intriguing filled with lots of drama. It’s a “can’t miss” and will keep us all glued to our screens.
Between the physical audition and the online audition, which do you think is better for this period of pandemic also bearing in mind the need to project real housemates without an iota of fakeness?
Do you agree with DSTV’s decisions this year?

Good luck to our potential housemates.
